Re: D versus B safety

I think your last sentence said enough. I love driving in B mode because I barely have to move my foot, I have adjusted my timing to come off earlier and slow down for corners and lights etc. But at the end of the day, when coming to a stop you still need to break - so for me at least, the muscle me...

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 c...

Keyless Entry - Safety Issues

Hey everyone, Just a quick one for others who may or may not have come across this. Before getting the id3 I created a keys area near my front door (but away and hidden so it’s not easily found if anyone breaks in) to make it easier to drop the keys when I get back or pick up on the way out. Always ...

Re: From Life to Tour

It doesn’t look like the demand/supply imbalance isn’t going to change for a good while.. Even M3’s have a 9 month plus wait now… 12 months, if you want an RWD. My Dad's been waiting for his RWD for 6 months already, and there's no guarantee whatsoever he'll be matched to a car in Q3. And this is f...

Re: MY22/22.5 Clarification

I ordered a Max via Plan Car Leasing around March time, it was delivered at the end of May. Was a MY22. I would be fairly certain the deal offered to you last week would likely be a cancelled MY22. As of yet, not seen anyone post that they have received a MY22.5 Max or Tour. I believe the delays ar...

Re: ID.3 Arriving tomorrow, but I have no idea what it will be!

It has arrived. MY22.5, and S/W version 3.0. :-) Have not had time to play with it.. work calls. But my initial attempt to register with we connect failed, and then it did a s/w update. Have not tried again. Thanks all. Hey, check you have the WeConnectID app rather than just the WeConnect app. Thi...

Re: Cracked windscreen

One of my clients has a Tesla 3. The screen needs replacing....and No replacements in the UK. 6 month wait!!! This is what happens when an entrepreneur has an idea to sell EVs but doesn't put the spares and repairs infrastructure in place. Anyone had similar stories? What on Earth are you on about....

Re: Replacements for the 'Aero Steels'

The ID3 feels a lot wider than my old Corsa, I haven’t hit a curb in 7/8 years of driving. Then with the ID3, day 2 and I hit a curb haha! At least it is only very minor and can only really see if you stare at it haha! Think I will keep the steel wheels because like @rmrpanda the wheels are actually...

Re: Replacements for the 'Aero Steels'

I am in the same boat and just as surprised haha. Probably keep it for a little to get used to and then look for something that looks a bit nicer :p

Might put them back on during winter for the extra (tiny bit of) range haha!

Re: Delivery time

For those with Plan Car leasing I called Chris yesterday and he said that my Max was built. He said they have quite a few cars in that are being delivered shortly. Interestingly I've been in touch with VW and I have a CS rep who has given me additional info yesterday who said it was at the port of ...

Re: Cost of insurance.

Weird lol, my insurance quotes have all been higher…
Coming from a 1.4 Corsa is probably why though - I imagine this is a much higher insurance group with quick 0-60 and more bhp.
I guess it mainly Depends what car you come from?

Re: Delivery time

Wow, exciting times!

Just got an email to say delivery is possible from Wednesday 18th May!

Time for a roadtrip this weekend to use the extra 250 miles of fuel in my car haha!

Weird that I don't have to wait the 2 week cooling off period, unless it is different for a company lease?
