Re: User profile functionality

It seems to have no benefit whatsoever. Allegedly the last update added memory of mirror and seat positions (if you have electric seats) to the user profile, which then makes sense.
It would make more sense if the profile tied to the key as well as not blocking use of the app.

Re: A couple of problems

On mine if you don't pull the handle properly or pull it too soon after stopping, it does this. Re the headlights are you in dynamic mode? The lights are very bright and light up the whole world unless they detect light in which case the LEDs switch off to leave a darkness circle around the approach...

Re: Advice on what tariff and home charger to go for a Volkswagen ID4 please

Another vote for Intelligent Octopus. .
Make sure you apply for an Electroverse card as well (it allows you to use some fast chargers at a discounted rate and the cost is added to your electricity bill).

I use a Zappi with my ID4 and it works perfectly well.

Re: About to buy a ID4

Not really. The test drive is just for you to get a feel for the car. When you move the drive selector switch it has two modes "D" and "B". I found the "D" mode a bit unnerving as the car doesn't really slow when you lift your foot off the accelerator. You may find that...

Re: Charging on Intelligent Octopus Go Tarrif

You definitely need to check two things:- 1) That your charger is compatible with Intelligent Octopus 2) That it's been set up properly. 3) That your smart meters are working properly in smart mode. I had a similar problem initially (I have a Zappi) but Octopus were able to do something their end th...

Re: Amber battery symbol... Help please!

Struggling a bit here as the ID4 is electric and has no ignition. Do you mean that when you pushed the brake to switch the car on, it disappeared? If so, I think that's normal.

Re: Software Update 3.2

Ok - I had another update OTA. Still says 3.2 so no idea what was in it. Still no difference at all as far as I can see. One thing I did spot. The wing mirror courtesy lights that spray a sort of Renault logo onto the pavement now seem to have a superimposed bull head shape. It just looks like they ...

Depending on your model, it may just be OTA. Mine was.

Software Update 3.2

Well, after a 2.5 hour update where I couldn't use the car, I was expecting great things...

Nope. The touchscreen is still worse than the little one in my Fiat 500.

Has anyone spotted any material differences?

Re: Abnormal tyre wear

Seems a bit short. My tyres were down to 2mm at about 17,000 miles, front and back.
