Shit, at that rate, mine as well just gut the whole inside and just leave the driver seat and replace the whole exterior with carbon fiber.

Also, I followed TecklenburgVW’s first post of that thread for coding, not Mursepaolo’s on the second page. The only thing I did differently is coding the Battery adaptation-Rated battery capacity Adapted; Teck used 39ah (stating that was the lowest that the system would recognize), however I was able to successfully set the capacity to 13ah (which the Braille G30 is) AFTER changing the battery type to Lithium Ion.
Thanks. So I did 39, no problem.
THen moved to lithium ion. no problem.
Go to change it from JBA to Braille and fails "out of range"
Braille, BRA, Braille Battery. None work.
Went to serial and that didn't work. Out of range. Maybe it needs to be same # of digits and I need to add zeros out front?

I know my vcds is out of date so will download newest but not sure why that would matter. Will go back in and try 13ah too.
Does battery MFG and and serial # really matter?

Success.

Updated vcds
Went back in and set it to 13ah. done
Then tried "BRA". success.
Seril number failed but then I tried to match the number of digits by adding 4 zeros. 0000XXXXXX worked!

Drives perfectly. My ghetto install tho...yikes.

Are you guys not going through batteries every 12-16 months? Iíd have a hard time justifying saving a few pounds over spending a couple hundred dollars on a battery every year.

Braille has a 10 year warranty. I’ve also had mine for 3 years with 0 issues in a Cayman and now my 19 R
