    Lease Return: Registration and other questions

    Probably better as the 2016 was an SE without DC fast charge. Got my bill today from VW, they took off the key on the bill (No calling needed but it was documented as a $0 charge) Paid the check and I am done! Have fun folks!

    HOV expiration Southern California

    I saw at the dealer a 2016 White eGolf SE with Red stickers, so you have to tell them that your stickers were issued after 1/1/17. They won't give them automatically because they look at model year.

    Lease Return: Registration and other questions

    As my eGolf goes back in 30 days I found a few interesting things. You are going back to December? Did you have it inspected yet? if Not, GO NOW. Inspection is cheaper when it's pre inspection (Before you turn in) instead of Post Inspection. Pre inspection is Free BTW The only time this...

    crazy question for extending range via rear wheel generator

    Now I've seen the worst charger design

    Seen on a Toyota Rav EV. Note : This is for the Chademo charger, the Level 2 Charging port is on the right rear. Link if you can't see it OMG He has to open his hood every time to plug in the Chademo?

    Cost of the 20k?

    my 20k (Which I only got last week) included testing the system and checking for any updates (none). Cost to me $65. As a side note, I bought the car in with a squealing brake, turned out a rock lodged right between the caliper and the disc. They took care of it for free.

    2016 e-Golf Quick Start Guide

    There's a QSG? I'll check my trunk to see if I still have one...if there is one. But don't count on VW writing a good manual...they suck at it.

    Added a little note on the clarity that it throws an error if you try to charge without the brake set.
