"Back in the day" ;) when I had an ICE car, I would put the car in the garage overnight. Unless it was wet. Now with the ID3 what do others do when their electric car is wet? In my infinite wisdom I had my Zappi charger fitted inside the garage. I have probably got a serious case of OCD!

Whenever mine arrives it's going to be on the driveway, plugged into the charger, come rain, snow, shine or hail.

Probably a very wise decision.

As my charger is in the garage and the charger cable won't go under the garage door, I need to channel some concrete from beneath that door. I haven't got round to it yet, as I haven't got the right chisels.

Good idea, but it's a metal door.

If the question is about putting cars in the garage when they are still wet, I have another car sat in my garage so don't have that decision to make if I did I wouldn't put it away wet though.

With regards to charging, like the others I just plug it in whatever the weather.. not had snow to contend with yet.

I suppose the main question was about putting wet cars in garages.
