Re: Plan Car Leasing (Deliveries)

They don't seem to even have an estimate for mime, so perhaps consider yourself lucky with that October date. I was originally told November but it's been very vague since.

Re: Plan Car Leasing (Deliveries)

With some people being pushed to next year I decided to chase for an update this morning. It was a non update basically:

"Your ID.3 has not been issued a confirmed build date yet. This is very normal for VW as this will not be issued until closer to the time."

Re: Plan Car Leasing (Deliveries)

I haven't heard in anything in over a month. I will probably leave them for another month and then ask them for an update from the dealer to see if anything has changed. I expect it'll be status 00 still. By the looks of it they seem to be building plenty of Family specs lately but no max or tours.

Re: Spec verification

That sounds like you've been done over as the Life spec of 2022 should come with all that. I'd be complaining and asking for the correct spec or some kind of compensation

Re: The reason I / you decided on the ID.3

Engineering of Teslas may be good but the build quality is known to be terrible at times. Granted they've not got as long history making cars as VW.

Re: Delivery time

Looks lovely, congrats on getting the car! Pretty certain mine is still raw minerals that probably haven't been mined yet.

Re: Delivery time

Hi All, I'm a new User. I've ordered my ID.3 Family 58kwh Pro on the 6th of October 2021. And since then it has been a nightmare. The delivery has been postponed already 8 times, and I just discovered that VW removed the assigned build week so the dealership now can't provide any build week or esti...

Re: BMW had a meeting & decided people needed another monthly subscription

I think the problem with it is more the fact that they're deciding to build the cars with the hardware already there, so the 'subscription' is merely a software barrier to using something your car already is capable of. Presumably this pushes up the cost of building the car for something some people...

Re: Software vs hardware

As a software engineer if you optimize well, you can make something run better on lower spec hardware. Or you can make badly optimized software run better by throwing better hardware it... unfortunately VW has done neither of these at the moment.

Re: Delivery time

That is a picture that sums up this whole thread! Podpoint fitted January 22, no build week on car! Can’t understand why no build week when lots who ordered after me have build weeks! Any ideas? If I were you I'd sit at your dealers and tell them you aren't leaving until they give you more informat...

Re: 2.4 update and battery replacement

Day 1 of the 2.4 upgrade….. They phoned and said they would need to keep the car until tomorrow. What is interesting is I imagined that whilst upgrading the car they would have plugged the car in, but looking at the app, apparently not. Wouldn't count on free electricity these days. Is VW 30 years ...

Re: Delivery time

Spider is making use of my Hypervolt now also. I know it works at least as my grandad used it once to charge his hybrid. For me it's more of a wall ornament I use to light up my driveway. Neighbour asked me if my Golf TDI is electric :D

Re: Plan Car Leasing (Deliveries)

Might just bag ourselves a facelift at this rate then! 😂 I wonder if based on your signature all of these were ordered in September 21. Starting to see a lot of September orders coming through now, mind you most of these are Family trims. With any luck we'll have these before the November estimation.

Re: How many seats ID.3 Tour Pro S 77kWh (Oct '22 build) ?

I would've been happy with a Max but I couldn't live with cheap wheel trims and Plan didn't have any with alloys. At least the tour comes with them as standard

Re: How many seats ID.3 Tour Pro S 77kWh (Oct '22 build) ?

I had a Life Pro Performance on order but the deal Plan offered on the Tour was considerably less a month so I snapped it up. I couldn't remember the last time I used all 5 seats in my current Golf so figured I could lose a seat for the extra gadgets

Ship arriving at Grimsby with cars. I'll be there with my binoculars and fake identification to see if our cars are there shortly.
