Re: Software 3.1

Oh my - a classic. I just filled in the form and submitted - and 1 min later I get a call… From sales 🤦‍♂️ Apparently that’s where the enquiries are being sent! Second one today he said! They wouldn't be implying that it would be better to buy a new car, rather than to get the update for your exist...

Re: Software 3.1

Does anyone have information about when 3.1 might be available to cars running 3.0. My ID.4 came with 3.0 from factory but some features like the shop and downloadable apps are not available yet. There's no evidence to suggest 3.1 even exists. Doesn’t the OP’s video not confirm 3.1? OK so my respon...

Re: Software 3.1

I’m sure there’s been a similar argument made 10 years ago about them using email rather than sending a letter. Times change - and we’re customers of a fairly cutting edge technology (EVs) - so it’s not surprising they’re harnessing the power of social media to communicate. I’m no fan of social med...

Re: MY22.5 observations

I don't have the 'luxury' of driving profiles yet, but my wife's Taigo does and frankly though the app has more functionality for her, my profile is useless and when I drive the car it still defaults to hers. I am not expecting profiles on the ID to be any better if I ever get them. As for B or D, t...

Re: Unable to load connection status

It comes and goes, mines down again since the weekend which isn't bad as it's been online for a couple of weeks since the last outage.

B mode here too, I just like the way it drives. I still hover my foot over the brake when I think I may need it.
Left foot braking?

Re: Braking and use of regen when in ACC

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.

Re: Software 3.1

I no longer have access to my Facebook account so it’s quite frustrating that this is the way VW decides to communicate updates. Anyone else on here or on Facebook got a service appointment? It's only an announcment about starting the campaign and indicating that the dealers will be getting prepare...

Re: Unable to load connection status

Make sure the ignition isn't on or pulling fuse 19 will lead to a dealer visit and it doesn't actually FIX anything, it just forces the comms module to restart, the car can still lose connection (and will)

D versus B safety

Every now and again I make the mistake of straying into Facebook, it doesn't take me long to realise it's not the place for rational sensible exchanges and I back out gracefully. One such conversation got me thinking about One pedal driving (B v D) or whatever alternative. There are a lot of people ...

Re: Tyre pressures at delivery?

Well, no it doesn't have tyre pressure sensors that's the point. It has a system that uses the ABS sensors to monitor wheel rotation and compares it to the other wheels to see if there is a difference which would indicate a change in circumference. It has no idea what the actual pressures are, so y...

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 im...

Re: Tyre pressures at delivery?

What amazes me looking at the comments re this topic , is have all motorists got out of the habit of checking their tyres on a regular basis. The tyre pressures are clearly indicated on the driver's side of the ID.3.The tyre pressures varies depending on the load that is required to be carried.In m...

Re: Charger won’t lock

Have you tried pulling fuse 19? I've never done it, so I would welcome the thoughts of those who had as to whether it is likely to help. The 'Fuse 19' trick isn't a magic bullet for all that ails an ID.3! It's just the fuse for the Communication Module, the only thing it's known to fix is the commu...

Re: Direct Comparison to the Cupra Born

I'm curious about one thing, a lot of people have used the equity in their ID.3s to step across to a Born and why not the particular set of circumstances over the last couple of years have given us another unprecedented occurence with car values, but what of the equity in the Cupra cars what is like...
