Re: Concerns about the sound system

No it will just restart the infotainment system a bit like a PC being forced restart when it is not doing as it should, I doubt it will change anything it does sound like you have a hardware issue to be fair (sorry if that is bad news but it does happen).

Re: Small screen percentage

I tend to use the vehicle information screen then select the charging icon and that shows the percentage right there on the screen if you want to know what your percentage is :mrgreen: I know this is not on the small screen behind the steering wheel but at least you get a view of it.

Has anyone used a Tesla home charge point?

Okay don't bash me to hard if this has already been asked (I did do a search but did not find the answer regarding the home charger) so as per the subject has anyone here used a Tesla Gen 2 home charger or one installed running on 3 phase say at an industrial site or even aboard? I ask because where...

Re: Sold back my ID.3 after a year

I do think this could be better explained to EV adopters coming from ICE, together with a dose of honesty and realism from the dealerships and manufacturers. I know, it's a forlorn hope. For us, we actually really wanted a Max rather than a Tour. However after researching ev-database.uk it became c...

Re: 80% battery charge vs full charge

I've seen people elsewhere say online that the Tesla GOM is always about 20% optimistic in winter. Personally I'd prefer the VW system... although I'd prefer it even more if the GOM was just an option to display but the %SoC was always visible, like a fuel gauge. Yes I would whole heartedly agree w...

Re: ID3 range-ometer just cannot be believed

I am not an expert on what the car is and isn't designed to do by default but surely if the cabin heater is on it is drawing power from the HV batteries and this is load on this means heat? Or am I wrong and the 3kw is being drawn from the 12V battery :?:

Re: ID3 range-ometer just cannot be believed

Can I ask.. just got my car.. regarding the pre condition of the batteries.. do I have to set a time in the app for it to sort the batteries out. Or can I say, 15 mins before we leave I set the cabin temp to 19, will that start to pre condition as well. Just wondering. Sorry if it's a little off to...

Interesting that there's a months order time between the 2 above posts but both at dealers around the same time. Is there any logical sense on the processing of these orders? :lol: I would say we both ordered the same car (Tour spec) and Newfie's got stuck waiting for SC's before mine but VW have p...

Re: Petrol Stations

My daily is a flat six Porsche. It has a serious addiction to the good stuff, and with V Power costing £1.60 a litre at the moment, it is ruinous on the pocket. Oh yes but I bet it sings a nice song (and therefore does not need to wear a mask) when you press the go pedal (assuming it is naturally a...
