Re: Why no LED tail lights / LED illuminated door sills in U

Look at it this way, you can't see your taillights while driving down the road :D so don't let it bother you. Honestly, I can't understand why some LED taillights are so bright. They are retina-piercing, and I'd much rather have regular non-blinding taillights than those less aesthetically pleasing ...

Re: Noise while charging battery

Agreed. This is a normal sound. People are saying it is the pump circulating the coolant, but there is another sound which I believe has something to do with charging the 12V battery. I could totally be wrong, but it would be interesting to confirm what these sounds are, from a technical point of vi...

Re: Spring-like noise when braking

Hm, my guess is maybe the brake retaining clips (which have a tiny bit of play) bouncing off the metal. It is completely normal (if that is indeed the noise). Try bringing the car to a super smooth stop, so towards the end of your stop, right before you completely stop, release the brake pedal just ...

Re: Key Fob Battery Life

I just started getting the message with a little over 12,000 miles @ 10 months. :idea: No one discussed what to do when the key battery is depleted, you can simply hold the key up next to the steering wheel base (where older keys used to plug in), and you can still start the car up in case your key-...

Re: Safety Recall 93B4 2015-2016 e-Golf Unexpected Shutdown

Additional thought... I just had this done, and I looked through my Settings > System Information, and didn't see anything descriptive on the software that my ECM/ECU is running.

Does anyone know how to double check the dealership's work to make certain the update is there?

I haven't received anything in the mail yet, but I did the VIN lookup and made the appointment thereafter.

Re: CarPlay intermittent outages

Yup, we had a similar issue on our Passat. The trick is to use the OEM Apple Lightning cable. If the cable is not from Apple, it'll (most likely) not work without flaws. Try it :)

This is Excellent news!!! I have been anxiously watching my mileage increase and just waiting for the dreaded stall-out. Great post, and everyone should certainly get this update prior to any unexpected vehicle system shutdowns.

Which wheels assist with Regen?

A bit of a technical question :?: I am curious which wheels have the regen/recuperation devices attached. The reason I ask isn't necessarily related to me, but for those that drive in snow that use the "B" mode as a form of "engine braking"... are the rear wheels still flapping along for the ride, o...
