Wow. Even though MY2018 and MY2017 are the same car. It will make a different the time you sell the car in the future.
Maybe...maybe not...in-service date is perhaps more important and the fact that there is no changes between the 17 and 18 MY.

Re: 2017/18 e-golf - WiFi question

Ok, so let me ask you this, then: The built-in Nav is pretty useless without network access. I read that it (the Discovery head unit) uses the tether to the phone to provide updated information. Not sure if that includes traffic. Would a WiFi hotspot in the car not allow the Nav to connect to it an...

Re: 2017/18 e-golf - WiFi question

Are you in the US or Canada? In Canada, since there isn't Car-Net, tethering via a cell phone or hotspot doesn't do anything for those services. Ah! I did not realise we don't get Car-Net in Canada. It is neat, but not essential...but it is yet another value-added piece that is missing. Thanks, VW....

2017/18 e-golf - WiFi question

The topic giving me the most grief in my research is the issue of connectivity in the e-Golf. It is very difficult finding current, up-to-date info on this. Even the youtube videos are a couple of years old. I know you can tether via the smart phone. I am more interested in an independent SIM card s...

Here, if you do not program your timer correctly, you can pay $ 0.157/kWh at peak rate. I do get $ 0.077/kWh off-peak.

Re: Winter driving impressions - First snow

As far as slowing down is concerned - the Golf is a FWD car. Regen will, therefore, increase the rolling resistance of the two front wheels, as opposed to using the brakes which act on all four wheels. The chance of inducing a slip (which the electronic elfs then quickly deal with) is greater when o...

Re: Ontario, Canada. Volks dealerships are inconsistent

It would come in handy for them to remember that they are neither the only game in town, nor do they have the most outstanding product. Nice, yes. Not the quickest. Not the longest range. Stay humble, my friends. People can and will shop elsewhere.
