Hello everyone, i'm back after a long hiatus. Hope everyone is doing well.

Have a quick question, do you guys check how high is the oil temperature of your car? For the past 3 years, it's usually 109-110 degrees but lately it's hitting 111-112 without even driving hard. Just wondering if there's anything I should be concerned about. Thanks!

 

sounds very normal

Seriously there are too many posts in this thread is asking for link to join Telegram interest group. Nothing against but do not do it so blatantly lah. At least learn how to do PM to Yokechye discretely. This kind of traffic is really putting the mods in dilemma - ban no good for forum not ban also no good for forum.

I would likely have done it also if I am Sharan owner if I can take the constant buzzing, if it is really active and full of good morning bros good evening bros kind of messages, but I will PM Yokechye instead out of respect to MCF.

There are 2 variant of Sharan available in 2016, in fact there might be 3.

Early 2016 Pre-facelift (SG version): No CarPlay

Feb - Jul 2016 Pre-facelift (MY version): No CarPlay

Sep 2016 onward Facelift: CarPlay and Android Auto come standard.

The photo is taken from my car, which is the 2nd batch (Nov 2016 shipment) of facelift model.

Any new Sharan onwer is looking to sell / trade-in your 18" Toulon rim (preferably with original RFT)? Do pm me if you are keen. Thanks. [:)]

BTW, recorded this amazing mileage range on the meter recently and mind you, the photo was taken after I had travelled 140Km after filling up full tank! So it has an effective range of up to 1,250Km...

How is this possible? Did you overfill?

The tank is 70l so this would mean FC of 17.5? What’s the FC you are getting these days?

dunno how you achieve such good mileage...i get 6-7km/l on the 7n1 and 7-8 km/l on the 7n2 😅

btw can expect to pay above 1k if you manage to find those new rims with the original self sealing tyres from the 2020 fl sharans 

good luck in your hunt!

👍😅

For this particular refill, I fill it up to the brim, so yah, should be >70L. After refilling, I made these few trips before taking the above range photo:

  • ~10Km @16Km/L (90% highway)
  • ~60Km @17Km/L (90% highway)
  • ~65Km @18Km/L (90% highway)
  • ~15Km @19.5Km/L (90% highway)

So overall average for the 150Km travelled is ~17.58Km/L, which is inline with the estimated range shown on the meter. OK, I would say this is rare to come by (not my daily mileage), as the road is pretty empty, thus I am able to take full advantage of the coasting function (which is like letting the car roll forward with empty gear). The last time I had such out of the world mileage was when I have to travel to Malaysia for work, where I can clock 950 - 1,050Km before refilling.

Wah boss, you change your Sharan to the F/L one? When was that? Really difficult to find a replacement for our ride.

The good FC can be attributed to the coasting as well as start-stop function (the former is of greater use to me as I spend ~70% on highway). And I mentioned a few times here that I like to drive with sunroof open while enjoying the morning breeze, so that also help to save some petrol indirectly.

For the 18" rim, I missed a good deal a few months back. The seller was asking for slightly below $1K, but as my tyres are not due for change, I did not proceed. :a-bang: :a-bang:

Anyway, I have done my homework, and is ready to commit once the price is right. I know the market rate (including trade-in price offered by tyre shop) so will not be asking for unreasonable pricing. [:)]

Looks like the EA888.3 is quite a bit better than the Gen 2 in terms of FC at low loads highway cruising. But i guess it should be somehow better in city driving too.

 

Good stuff.
