Re: Most efficient LRR tire to replace Ecopia 422

While the CrossClimate tires from Michelin are excellent tires, you will notice a hit to the efficiency compared to the Ecopias.

Re: Adding a reverse camera.

I assume you are in Europe since all North American e-Golf cars had the backup camera included. Personally, I would try to go for retrofitting the factory backup camera that's integrated into the rear logo/hatch release. However, I have no idea how much parts would cost or whether some kind of codin...

Re: Buy 2017 e-golf w/ only 9,500km in NZ?

I don't know if I would want a Japanese market e-Golf. My understanding is that VW used the J1772 port in the front grille like the Golf GTE plus a CHAdeMO port under the normal fuel filler door on the right rear for those cars. I would think that a UK market RHD car with CCS2 would be a much better...

You can leave it plugged in as long as you want. The car will do the right thing to charge the battery properly.

Re: FS: Wallbox Pulsar Plus -$550 shipped

What is a "single dual box charger"? Is that an EVSE with two J1772 connectors, each on its own cable? Who makes such a device? Clipper Creek has both types - paired dual units with power sharing (Share2) and single units with two cords that share power (Dual Charging). Share2: https://st...

Re: Are Crossclimate 2 tyres BEST ?

The standout feature of the CrossClimate series of tires is that they are a true All Weather tire with winter "3 Mountain Peak Snowflake" rating. If that is useful to you, then it's a great tire that doesn't have a huge range penalty on an EV.

Re: 2019 VW e-Golf

The proper setting for the ChargePoint charger should match the circuit breaker size it is installed with. The e-Golf has a 30A on-board charger, so it will never use more than that. Any AC charging is very gentle on the battery. Only DC Fast charging could possibly do anything to shorten the life o...

Re: Can you do remote start with CarNet App?

CarNet cannot "start the car" to avoid using the key fob. You should be able to start the climate control though.
What exactly did you expect to happen with "remote start"?

Re: Charging fault, charging port locked and won't let go

Some pictures above are showing the European Type-2 CCS inlet. The North American cars use Type-1 CCS and the locking mechanism is different. So, be careful about the applicability of the various part numbers shown.
