Re: Software 3.1

This VW website now says you should book your appointment by contacting your dealer :lol: I'll probably contact ours on a couple of weeks if we haven't heard anything but don't particularly want to be first.

Re: Delivery time

If you had a Max or Tour it'd be uncertain but there hasn't been a MY22 Family delivered for a couple of months now, meanwhile there have been loads of MY22.5s. Family spec cars (and Life's) haven't spent time sat waiting en masse like many of the two higher specs from late 2021. And this is when I...

Re: Software 3.1

The Facebook group was originally set up as a way to give more advanced information to 1st edition buyers, which they later opened up to all ID drivers. It was never intended to replace other comms but rather be additional. As I understand it everyone got emails about 2.3 and we'll all get invites i...

Yes, similar experience at times. If I lift and press again it seems to come back as expected but the braking sensation is no different so I assume it's more of a bug in the display than anything.
Interesting, I think it feels different, maybe I'm imagining it!

Re: Braking and use of regen when in ACC

No. Regen availability isn't the issue (pale green bar is full), it just seems to not use it in these circumstances.

Re: Braking and use of regen when in ACC

Turning on ACC does not disable eco assist, however, I generally have it disabled now anyway - it's not a factor in what I described. I also just noticed when driving this morning that it also shows the same behaviour in normal driving (with no ACC) if I brake (reasonably heavily but within regen ca...

Braking and use of regen when in ACC

The D v B safety thread reminded me of something. When driving with ACC (in D) I sometimes want to slow down more than the ACC is doing, for example if I can see a queue or red light ahead. I find quite often in these circumstances (but only when ACC is on up to the point of pressing the brake) the ...

Re: How many seats ID.3 Tour Pro S 77kWh (Oct '22 build) ?

I thought all UK Tours remained 4 seats spec. In some countries a 5 seat option with reduced other tech was made available but I don't think it's ever been sold in UK.

For non Facebook people...in reply to someone's questions: - they said they can't guarantee when invites will start in each country but nominally from the middle of next week (interesting someone said yesterday that she'd had it already), and - they clarified that the 3.0 update would be a separate ...

Re: Software 3.1

They said a few months back now that anyone on 2.1 would just get updated to 2.4 along with everyone else.

Re: Software 3.1

I think that's a bit unfair given the context, which is that they said they would give an update by the end of June and they have been hounded for it ever since. This is actual progress ie it's central VW saying they have now passed out the information to national groups and dealers will have it imm...

Re: Keyless Entry - Safety Issues

Thanks for the replies guys, I worked out that my original issue came because I put the keys down, then went outside and opened the door. The keys were still active so I could open and was concerned. The keys do “lock” when they go inactive, so I can sleep a little bit better now knowing that they ...

Re: Direct Comparison to the Cupra Born

I think the Cupra brand is being pushed more as a sporty Seat than a luxury Seat. You get the sportier looks and in some cases performance, but you don't get the additional comfort, expensive materials, sound proofing etc that you would get in an Audi - it's a different target market. I don't claim ...

We need to be able to turn up at a charger, step 1 plugin, step 2 swipe credit card, step 3 wait. Eac...
