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.

Re: Last Chance Model Closeout

Sunnyvale's latest ad includes an offer for an e-Golf SEL lease for $48/mo. This is ridiculous because it requires $4,390 down and only 24 months. That comes to $231/mo and you don't qualify for the CVRP rebate on a lease that short. Minimum Lease term is 30 months for the rebate. Of course, many pe...

Last Chance Model Closeout

I just got an advertisement from Sunnyvale VW. They claim they are having a "Last Chance Model Closeout" sale on the e-Golf SEL. $12,500 off or $159/mo lease for 36 months. $4450 due at signing + TTL after $7,500 credit. https://i.ibb.co/5XQsLqB/Svle-Advert-2020-08.jpg The inventory on their web sit...

Re: 1st Time EV Owner - Questions

For ease of use, it would be sufficient to set the Max Charge Level to 80% and charge it back to that every day. Anything more rigorous is not worth the trouble. VW already has a significant buffer at the top of the battery, so 80% is already very conservative.

Re: Charging port locking issues. Won't lock or unlock - FIX and BYPASS

I really have to wonder why VW didn't develop a splice kit and solenoid replacement procedure so that they wouldn't have to pay for this ridiculous repair under warranty. Obviously I don't expect them to care about the cost of repair out of warranty, I'm just surprised that they didn't want to save ...

Re: Daily commute charging question

Hi, I just ordered 2019 egolf in Shanghai China. I installed a 7.2kw charger at home garage . Dealer claims egolf can do 220km with cool air-conditioning on. My office is 135km away. Half 120kph motorway, half 80 kph motorway. No charging facility available in my office. But there are several publi...

Re: J949 OCU 3G or 4G?

I believe @crunch81 is in Europe. Keep in mind that most users on this forum are in North America. The radio module in the US e-Golf is completely different than in Europe. If I recall correctly, the VW USA CarNet service is based on service provided by Verizon Telematics and therefore uses the Veri...
