Never use it as its so flakey so I wont be!Not sure if I would extend the Carnet service though?
I agree, however I could probably live without this, as for the most part I just set the timer in the car the night before. I guess my decision to renew the subscription will depend on how much they want to charge me when the time comes.remotely triggering the car to defrost/preheat is absolutely the bees knees
Timer in the car works well for the morning. But not for leaving work in the evening/overnight, or when you're sitting in the car on a rapid or getting the car cooled down in summer before mum gets in it...I agree, however I could probably live without this, as for the most part I just set the timer in the car the night before.

Exactly this. Golf is so much nicer inside than the ID3. The extra range is the only thing im really envious ofI keep being tempted by an ID.3 but find the Golf is just a nicer place to be.
I had a Mk8 golf as a courtesy car for a day. It is a definite downgrade in quality from 7.5. I didnt like it at all.I have not experienced either first hand, but from what I have read, build quality on both Golf Mk8 and ID3, do not match that of the Golf Mk7/7.5.
Yep, absolutely. About 50kWh would work well. I'm a single car household.If the Golf had a 50kWh battery then it would work as our main car and we would have a Zoe or similar as our second car but at 30kWh or less now it's not great for anything over 90 miles at 60-65 mph this time of year.
Android Auto is on most of the time I'm in the car, but I like having the map on the digital dash, so I do use the built in navigation.I use Android Auto every time I get in the car and have barely used the car navigation in 2 years, so I definitely won't be renewing the map subscription.
Anyone looked into VW extended warranties?
Yes, my main concern really. Although, given the battery is covered for 8 years, it's the other significant parts that need consideration, motor, inverter and charger etc.but I guess it could get very expensive if it develops problems 🤔
Another reason to love the e-Golf and keep hold of it!Did not realize it was hand made. Makes it even more special: a hand made German one-off, albeit a mass produced one.
I have a twice weekly commute of 90 miles and I have to drive at 60 or less to have more than 10-15 miles left. I have cross climates and it's been above freezing so far this year, sometimes only just above.Currently I seem to be averaging about 100 miles on a full charge. But that's with proper winter tyres, temperatures generally between -3 and +5 and damp or wet roads most of the time. I'd love to know what my useable capacity is now.
Thank you for the offer @Woodulike, but as you say probably not going to get particularly accurate readings this time of year. I suspect I'll be somewhere in the vicinity of the dealer in spring, so will try to remember to ask them then.I have a twice weekly commute of 90 miles and I have to drive at 60 or less to have more than 10-15 miles left.

I could post my obdeleven plug in to you to try if you want to see how your battery is doing, but won't be great readings in the winter. Maybe try in the summer?
I think I'll have bought an ID3 before the end of the year, and mostly because of this run. Still keeping the Golf.
