Re: Bits ya bought...

If they have an existing pattern for a VW ID3, they could use those and change the logo. I thought that as well, but they don't have the ID.3 listed either. I didn't want to suggest it as I wasn't certain that they were identical. I haven't found any alternatives that have the same quality, and I h...

Re: Bits ya bought...

As you've started this thread, can I bump up my previous (and relevant) request? On my last few cars I have added door sill plates to minimise damage from feet being dragged across the sill edge. The best ones I have found are made by Lockwood International in Leeds. Partly because of the high quali...

Mmmm I was told you could not have a pano roof on a V3 version (maybe only the V3 77kw)

๐Ÿ™
OK, I checked again and you are right that the pano roof cannot be specified on any 77Kwh version, only on the 58Kwh and lower versions. My bad.

Re: Winter wheels

What are the rules like in the UK for putting on rims that aren't specifically listed in the CoC? It's crazy strict here in Germany, to the point that anyone with a 77kwh e-boost only has a a small handful of options - and anything not in the CoC has to be individually approved by the manufacturer ...

I checked everything out before I went to the dealer and I needed to tell them what was available. There ar...

Re: New order - lead time

I ordered my Born V2 77KW on 4th July 2022. To my spec, so built from scratch. Was promised delivery late Oct and was kept well informed of progress. Got email from Seat dealer telling me it had landed in the UK in Sept, and a video of it arriving at the dealer in mid Oct. Delivered 28th of October...

On the 77kWh with DCC specific Michelin Pilot Sport EV
Thanks for the info - 235/40s (I must have been thinking of my current tyres). Good to see the Michelins. It'll be great if they are standard, but with VW you never know what you're going to get!

Re: 77 V3

No I didnt specify any tyres. They are Continental ECO Contact 6's. My 1st long journey was good. 154mile 3hours 20 4.0m per KWH I asked about the wheels . Do you have Firestorm or do you have the narrower (215/45) Blizzard copper) or Hurricane (silver). I don't think you can specify tyres but I'm ...

Re: 77 V3

I'm still waiting for my 58 V3 and I'm also interested if you specified the Firestorm wheels to see what tyres were supplied. I'm hoping for PS4's.

Re: What EV charger

I had a Myenergi Zappi installed in my garage. Nice tidy job but since I don't have the car yet, I haven't been able to use it. The reason it's in the garage is that I'm one of the few people who use the garage as a garage, in that I actually put the car in it! Strange, I know. If you leave your car...
