Re: Tire pressure and tire replacement

Assuming that the injured tire was not repairable, I too would have purchased just one OEM tire. 8K miles is not a lot of difference in tread between the single new versus the 3 older ones. The runflats MAY save you from using the goo that comes with the car, assuming that you have discovered the pu...

Re: Buying a 2017 e-Golf, 1st EV, need advice!

Before you reset the "extended trip", take a look at the mi/kwh (higher the better), average speed, and distance traveled data. It will give you a clue as to the driving conditions and aggressiveness of the previous owner.

Re: 2017 SEL vs 2019 SE

Besides price, condition, mileage, remaining warranty, etc., there is only ONE scenario that I can think of where the features of a 2019 SE outweigh a 2017 SEL, and that scenario is: The 2019 SE has the optional driver's assistance package (blind spot monitor and adaptive cruise control) while the 2...

Re: Garage door opener?

Very easy solution to close this 6-year old thread. You can buy a auto dimming with Homelink mirror. Genuine VW part. Plenty of Youtube videos on how to install too. Give them a call to find out which one you need, depending on how your vehicle is equipped. https://www.shopdap.com/000072548e-autodim...

Re: Is the 125mi battery worth trading for?

Sparklebeard, where did you get the screen protector for your infotainment screen in your egolf Sel 2019? I would also be interested in knowing how you change the color of the turn signals on the mirror. Great post! I've seen Sparklebeard's car. Can't answer about the screen protector, but for the ...

Re: Battery fantasy

Zero chance. There are battery replacement services for the Nissan Leaf, and they only use the battery from wrecked ones.

Re: Help with Battery/Range Degradation

We are developing machine learning algorithms to predict future battery life and range across all major EV models. Why would I ever want to use an algorithm to PREDICT future battery life, when it would be far more accurate to actually MEASURE the battery's state of health via Leaf Spy, OBDEleven, ...

Re: Rust on metal frame inside the dashboard

This is common for any maker. Another place you'll easily see this is in the seat frames, underneath the upholstery.
