My Top Gear Day!

I know this isn't exactly an EV specific post, but I thought I'd share my experience while in the UK at the Top Gear Driving Experience! Definitely a bucket list item checked!

National Drive electric week is close at hand again! Be sure to check for your local events and if you have an EV to show off, then stop by, if you are still on the fence, stop by, take a ride, ask questions, talk to people who live with these cars everyday and see how they work in everyday life! I'll be showing and giving rides in mine!
Here's some more pics I've been hording, below is the new much bigger and much faster infotainmnet touch screen in the 2016 and newer model SEL's

Here's a shot of my car in for it's 10,000 mile "service" basically rotated the tires, topped off the wiper fluid and checked for any software updates... all for free:)

Here's a look under the hood, the plastic black cover makes it look more like a gas motor bay, but there is actually plenty of empty space in there and all this orange cables give it away.
Here's a window sticker from a 2016 e-Golf SEL. Lease rates can vary depending on availability at the time, but generally still around what I paid.

There are now over 9 or 10 e-Golfs at my workplace, mine of course still stands out :P thanks to my VOLTZWAGEN decals and wraped roof and mirrors!





Fun with bigger rims! Thanks to a generous donation of size via photoshop! See those rims look good, their just too small :)

Quick take #1

here's a quick video about my 10,000 mile service and the changes for 2016 models so far. One thing I forgot to mention in the video is that the cheaper SE model comes with a 3.3 kWh charger and not the SEL's 7.2kWh charger. That makes a big difference IMO.

Thanks!
