Re: Tinting

I paid $400 for high quality ceramic tint for everything BUT the windshield. So $500 w/windshield is fair.

Don't go with cheap tint. It will bubble and peel.

Re: What does CPO mean for eGolf?

When I bought out the lease on my eGolf, I submitted it for the CPO process. It does go through a checklist of inspection items (same as in your link), and they did replace the wiper blades and the two front tires. My bumper to bumper warranty was extended to 5 years/60k miles as a result of that. T...

Re: Portable cable charger - lease return

I wonder if the OP is talking about the L2 (240 volt) EVSE that usually is not included with the car (though a dealer might throw one in as part of a deal)? That is not required to be returned. But the L1 (120 volt) one is part of the car and should be returned with it.

Re: sunscreen

The only factory accessory I know of that's different on the eGolf are the floor mats. The ones from gas/diesel Golfs will NOT fit the eGolf, due to a pronounced hump beneath the seats that extends out into the footwell. The eGolf's front floor mats are smaller for that reason.

Re: Tesla wall charger to charge the egolf

The same company used to sell Tesla Mobile Connector with a J1772 plug swapped in, called a "JESLA" but they apparently don't sell it anymore. They still sell the Jesla based on the Gen2 Tesla Mobile Connector. It's called JESLA JR. I used an original Jesla to charge our 2015 e-Golf for about 30 mo...

Re: Buying a 2016 e golf: is CPO worth it?

The big advantage with the CPO is the included warranty extension, which extends the original 3 year/36k mile bumper to bumper warranty to 5 years/60k; all other warranties remain the same. You do get some level of reconditioning, but that will vary by specific car. Ask to see the CPO checklist to s...

Re: Tesla wall charger to charge the egolf

Teslas sold in Europe use a Mennekes port like most EU-spec EV's (older Leafs being a notable exception, not sure about the 2018's) so that's why the person who made the video can plug a Tesla Wall Connector directly into an eGolf. For Tesla Destination Chargers and Wall Connectors in North America,...

Re: sunscreen

The eGolf uses the same basic body shell as the 5 door hatchback versions. The Sportwagen/Alltrack/"Variant" (German name)/"Estate" (UK name) use the station wagon body shell. S/SE/SEL are just trim level names and I believe are only used for the US market cars.

Re: EVSE cable shows fault after 1:10 seconds

If it’s the “Delphi” branded EVSE, it is NOT compatible with 240 volts out of the factory. So there’s a good chance it got fried. It’s definitely not the car if it charges from a dedicated public L2 station. If you need a new 120 volt EVSE, the Delphi is basically a Clipper Creek PCS-15 built under ...

Re: To Buy or Not to Buy... Only access to regular 120V Char

Before, you buy or lease, I highly recommend renting an EV (any EV) through Turo and trying it out for yourself. The big unknown is whether your electrical supply will cause the EVSE (often incorrectly called the "charger") to throw faults, preventing the car from being charged. You do NOT want to f...
