I hate these strake on my egolf , weight increase, aka. shorter range.
While I believe the weight difference and impact on range to be extremely negligible, maybe you can swap with someone who has a 2017+ model. The 15/16 models have slightly different fenders so it may not fit.

I would be amazed if the impact of the weight of the strakes could even be measured in terms of impact to the range.... Pretty sure the user's manual is heavier than the strakes.... they're plastic.

You'd get a bigger range increase from taking the rear tonneau cover out of the car than you would from not having the strakes! :!:

Sparklebeard and 2016golfse: I am pretty sure Blackgolf was just kidding with his comment ! :D
