Re: Small Difference in Lower Grille on 2019 - Early versus Late Production Run?

I hate these strake on my egolf , weight increase, aka. shorter range. I would be amazed if the impact of the weight of the strakes could even be measured in terms of impact to the range.... Pretty sure the user's manual is heavier than the strakes.... they're plastic. You'd get a bigger range incr...

Re: high pitch sound from motor?

It's a legally mandated feature, so it would be surprising if it's not present. There's a fault light for it and all. So your vehicle is totally silent around 10mph, no sound from the engine compartment (right wheel well, to be precise) at all?

I'm envious.

Re: How Can I Tell how Many Amps I'm Charging At?

If you use an OBD tool like OBDeleven you can get that information from the battery control module. Probably not worth the effort, though.

Re: Help! My car won't go into reverse (just moves forward)...

EPS From what I understand, the real purpose of this indicator light is not to indicate a power steering system failure, but instead to elicit a response of "WHY ISN'T THE CAR WORKI... oh I need to press the brake..." :mrgreen: :lol: I don't notice the READY light so easily, but I have got used to ...

Re: high pitch sound from motor?

Speaking of that fake engine noise. I am yet to hear anything that remotely resembles this noise. Do we even have this enabled in the US? My car is 2019 SE; I'm in the US. Thanks! Its the low rumbling, almost groaning sound that the car makes when travelling at low speeds. Open the windows in a qui...

Re: Brake Energy Recuperation aka Regenerative Braking Wears Out Brake Pads?

All that said, why would you want to drive around in B? There's a lot of economy to be had in coasting. It saves on brakes and increases your range. I live in a hilly area, so that might make a difference. My daughter drives a few miles down to her school and arrives with more range than she left w...

Another data point: Mine is a December 2018 build, and DOES have the strakes.

Explain why. I ask because there doesn't appear to be any of those available yet.
2017+ has bigger battery, so more range. If the range on the 15 and 16 meets your needs there's no reason not to buy one at the right price.

Re: Build Thread: Performance e-Golf

Sounds like very cool mods to make the car look and feel sportier. There might be a significant reduction in range from all of the changes, especially the big wheels. If the trade off is worth it then go for it!
