Re: Bosch Icon wiper blades?

Not sure if these are Bosch Icon blades, but I bought Bosch 5G1998002 wiper blade set and they work just fine for about half the price of the VW blades.

I believe charging to 100% will balance the cell voltages. Once a month or two months makes sense.

Re: Battery degergation from non use

Lithium ion cells degrade with time as well as with use. The cells in a car unused for years should be in better shape than one that has been cycled hundreds or many hundreds of times over the past three years. Give the car a long drive and estimate usable capacity.

Re: keep the forum going!

Hard to be sure. I don't calculate usable capacity based on the GOM at startup - I wouldn't trust the GOM for estimating pack capacity. I drive the miles and then use the measured efficiency to calculate pack capacity. If the car suits your needs, then why not wait until deg is more significant befo...

Re: keep the forum going!

If you continue to treat the battery pack as you do now, I'm not sure you need to worry. I have 32,000 miles on the pack and since 22,000 miles when I started to keep close track of the pack energy content, the usable capacity (based on driving at least 100 miles and using the car's efficiency data)...

Re: Are Crossclimate 2 tyres BEST ?

Why not stick with OEM tires? I am guessing VW engineers did a lot of work to a tire with the optimum specs for range and grip. What does Michelin claim about their tires? Have you found any tire tests that suggest "best" choice?

Re: 2016 E-Golf gives error when I unplug charger

I don't think so, but to rule out the station you typically use (that is associated with this error), how about you try charging at a variety of public L2 stations?

What EVSE do you typically use to charge your car at home?

Re: 2016 E-Golf gives error when I unplug charger

Sounds to me like there is a bad connection between the charge port and the computer.
