Re: rym size...

I'm not aware of any tests of this using the e-Golf. but I would imagine the physics generally suggest a lighter wheel (plus tire) would result in better efficiency. That said, the stock e-Golf wheel is rather aerodynamic, so if the replacement 15" wheel isn't as aero, that could negate some of the ...

Re: it's spring 2020...where are the SEs??

We don't know if VW will make any more e-Golfs at all. They've stated there will be no model year 2020 e-Golf (after initially stating there would be), so my assumption is they have stopped producing them. It's certainly possible they'll make some more to use up existing parts inventory, but it's ve...

Re: My limited experience with Michelin Pilot A/S 3+ tires

I also put these same tires in my 2017. I chose the 225/50 size on the stock wheels. No problems with fit. I've had nothing by great results, albeit with some decrease in range. I haven't tried to quantify the loss since the weather has been all over the place here. But the handling is SO much bette...

Re: Hello!

Welcome! It's an awesome car and I'm sure you'll love it. If you're like me, you'll get spoiled by the awesome driving dynamics. It's painful when I have to drive our ICE car.

Re: electronic engine sound (e-sound)

The speaker is in the front right wheel well. If you turn your wheel to the left (or remove it) you can see a small panel in the front of the wheel well.

Re: Estimating Battery Degradation

Agreed. mpulsiv, everything you're saying fits with my understanding. I believe this is the best practice for maintaining battery life. I will note, however, that the difference between this best practice and a less cautious 70% average charge (for example) is likely insignificant. That said, some p...

Re: Your highest mileage before re-charging

In the US, the car is only rated for 125 miles, so 127 sounds about right. But the actual mileage you get depends almost entirely on the driving conditions (speed, weather, acceleration, braking, etc). The miles remaining estimation (lovingly called the guess-o-meter (GOM)) will change based on your...

Re: How to remove oily stains on fabric seat cover

After spraying the stain I lightly scrubbed it with this upholstery brush (which I had forgotten about until you asked), though the brush was probably overkill. I also had a cheap chamois on hand that I blotted it up with, and that worked well. I could have easily just used the chamois to scrub. So ...
