I'm now the proud owner of an ID.3, and there have been a lot of videos all about it. Some I noticed as they flew by in the threads, and thought "Hmm, ought to watch that more closely later", and later on can I find the darn video again? So I've ploughed through the EVnews Rides Again thread, and noted links to ID.3 videos. Here they are. I'm editting this first post from time-to-time in an attempt to keep it (reasonably) up to date.

Edit 15 Dec 2020: More videos. Add links re Wheels, EVSEs, Tow/Hitch.
Edit 23 Dec 2020: add video about High initial consumption of battery heating...
Edit 2 Jan 2021: add link to video, 80 mph motorway range in v cold but dry weather.
Edit 10 Jan 2021: link to video about 12V Flat Battery, 0783 M2.0 workaround
Edit 10 Jan 2021: link to video about heater power consumption ECO .vs. Comfort.
Edit 14 Jan 2021: link to excellent article about Battery Heating, and Heatpump performance.
Edit 22 Feb 2021: 58 kWh gets 140 miles on winter tyres in snow slush.
Edit 16 March 2021 VW Official Guidance about Charging at Rapids, 80% rule etc.

Edit 14 Jan 2021: added link to very interesting article "Winter performance: ..." examining ID.3 Battery Heating, and Heatpump as well. Compulsory reading imho for anyone wondering why the ID.3 is so thirsty on short trips in winter. Link taken from this post: (Thx btw!).

22 Feb added link to video showing 58 kWh model getting 140 mile range in snow & slush, on winter tyres. No mention of any heatpump, so I guess probably didn't have one.
Brave guy to be prepared to rock up at a Rapid with 0% SOC left & 0 Km range in hand! :eek:

16 March added link to the VW Official advice about Rapid Charging, how to charge to 100% while keeping battery life optimal etc. Everyone with ID.3, ID.4 should read this!

(Nice to see mention of "2 security puffers" available in case of emergency!!! :ROFLMAO:)

Great link. It should answer all the 'What's best for the battery..?' questions here and on Facebook.
