    New to me 2019 E-Golf 34k Miles

    VW specific software like OBD11 or VCDS or dealer will match the size and type of battery as well as clear any error codes. There are options for regular wet-cell, AGM, Gel-Cell, LiFe (lithium) and different sizes of factory recommended Varta EFB (Enhanced Flooded Battery) - designed for...

    Feeler - 2019 eGolf SEL Performance Build

    Huh. Your build thread inspired me - Koni, Eibach, Audi wheels and underbody aero, with EU amber/dynamic lights - Your comment about front splitter being low/damaged is why I haven't gone that direction. Not a bad price, SEL has the heat pump and LED headlights and I thought about getting GTE...

    Upgraded wheel picture request...

    I went lighter than stock, still 16". Audi A8 "Winterfelgen" (winter wheels) forged, exact fit and slightly wider. Around 16lbs/wheel vs 19lbs or so for factory Astana. Looks like some of the vintage moddified Mk1/Mk2 VW Golf/GTi and feel excellent with Continental ECS02 tires. Feels slightly...

    How to remove “For your safety" window

    I think so - I like to have the screen go dark after 10seconds and originally that option was disabled when moving. Used VCDS (or OBD11) to change many of the InfoDisplay settings from "locked" to "open" - unfortunately I don't know which change enabled access while driving... Would focus on...

    Decals and awareness

    I may have gone a bit further in "clean" look - I have had people ask "What is it?" - VW badges are black F & R, no "e-golf" badges anywhere. Put a rabbit next to the 'e' on back hatch (see my avatar) and de-chromed shiny trim with vinyl tape. Re-positioned a small pale purple CA HOV lane decal...

    Air conditioning seems too cold...

    Slightly different perspective, but I have noticed (Memphis gets hot-n-humid) that my range/efficiency is best with AC set to "HI" - and it still blows *plenty* cool (even cold after a few minutes). If I have AC set lower, say to "74", there is a noticeable drop in efficiency/range. Almost same...

    Most efficient LRR tire to replace Ecopia 422

    I wasn't trying "lab-certified" testing - back-to-back identical conditions/driving profile/road/same wheels with different tires - that is (for my view) trading accuracy for *relevance*. Yes you may argue "too many variables" - but I'm interested in my own real-world example - me driving...

    Badges - blue trim?

    Later (my 2019 for example) had boring stock chrome F & R. I blacked mine out, though might've kept stock if blue-edged originally...

    Most efficient LRR tire to replace Ecopia 422

    Although efficiency is important, tires also provide essential traction for *everything* your vehicle does - move forward, stop, corner and also contribute to driving feel (tire flex is part of suspension) and noise (tread). My 2019 came with ~11,000mi on stock/OE Ecopias, appeared to have...

    What did you do with your eGolf today?

    Yeah, I'm going deep into the (VW) rabbit hole! Today updates - Just got and installed low-profile rear headrests (already had removed middle). Exact-match EU/ROW versions are $200+ each, plus shipping - I ordered ebay/recycler yard MK6 "jetta" dark gray cloth units - all three $70, shipping...

    What did you do with your eGolf today?

    I've been lurking/reading for over a year - picked up my '19 SE almost exactly a year ago, this forum (and others like MK7VW, VWVortex) have been helpful. Since I only unplugged the basic level1/granny-charger/110V cord today and didn't drive anywhere, I'll share what I've done to date: "Drive...
