Re: Herbert Diess ousted as VW boss

Some perspective please? Diess currently remains the chief executive of VAG, this is only a change of leadership at a single brand (VW) within VAG. VW have however canned Stefan Sommer, VW’s components and logistics exec hired in 2018. It’s quite clear to even the dumbest onlooker that there has bee...

Re: 2.4 update and battery replacement

Folks, I'm beginning to think I've dodged a hail of bullets with this 2.4 software update (my cancelled Tour would have come with 2.3) I've long been saying that I didn't think 3.x was coming OTA until 2023 at the very earliest, but at the rate of 2 of these 2.4 upgrades a week for each dealer in th...

Re: Intelligent Octopus and Software 3.0

I'm potentially about to switch from Go to IO, but I have an Ohme charger which does work with IO, so the ID.3 will be in 'dumb' mode with the Ohme controlled via IO to charge the dumb car. Not jumping just yet, waiting for the renewal email from Octopus which is expected by the end of the month. I...

Re: Max Payload

So this is something I've been thinking about recently since I was looking weight of the ID.3 and the Cupra Born. It's an issue that I've never needed to really worry about with ICE cars because their max payloads are relatively high and basically impossible to hit. However the ID3 55kWh has a max ...

Some of the parking on offer, on the app, also offers the use of a home-charger. (for a fee, Cherry)

Genuine lol at the “for a fee, Cherry” aside :-D

Re: Utumno's Tesla Model Y has arrived !

All sounds good and nothing better than being happy with your new car What would you say the realistic range is at 70mph? Realistically about 276 miles based on current live consumption and using 90% of the usable battery. Also bear in mind this is with the car full of stuff for a week away self-ca...

Re: Delivery time

Anyone know what the chances my Familr pro performance due for delivery in the next few weeks will be a MY22.5? 100% Thanks. I'm really happy to be getting it after 10 months but I'd be a bit disappointed if it was a MY22. Quite right too! Your build week quoted was after 51/2021 so you should abso...

Re: Software 3.1

So, afterwards, (and I know we don't know the answer) are they saying that 3.0 will start after 2.4 is complete or there will be an initial delay? If we've got to wait for them to try and catch up with updating to 2.4 It'll be 2023. Ive been saying for ages here that 3.x OTA won’t start until 2023....

Re: Delivery time

Just chased the dealer after seeing everyone’s news. Apparently our car has gone back to not having a build week and he recommended cancelling (I bet as they’ll make a lot more selling it when it arrives). It’s so frustrating as all other 313xxxxx car orders seem to have been fulfilled on the sprea...

Re: Utumno's Tesla Model Y has arrived !

What's the main differences between M3 and MY? Without having looked into it, from visuals alone, it would seem that the MY is to the M3 as the Golf Plus is to the Golf, but i'm probably being a bit simplistic. A slightly more apt comparison might be Jetta/Tiguan, but your comparison isn’t unreason...

For non Facebook people...in reply to someone's questions: - they said they can't guarantee when invites will start in each country but nominally from the middle of next week (interesting someone said yesterday that she'd had it already), and - they clarified that the 3.0 update would be a separate...

Re: Utumno's Tesla Model Y has arrived !

No HUD, no working matrix headlights. Bummer The headlights on the Y are plenty good enough in practice, but the matrix lights felt like a bit of a wrench it's true. I didn't have a HUD to start with, so I don't know what I'm missing there 🤷‍♂️ The matrix light thing is a strange situation on Tesla...

Re: Delivery time

Update from my dealer today. Still at status 00, this is bloody ridiculous now. God knows if the government grant will still be applied if this goes over 12 month. Despite the ridiculous wait, it may be too expensive for me as I’m leasing it. What’s your thoughts on this? Would the payments go up a...

Congratulations to all the new car owners.
Thanks for the updates I have updated the sheet.
And I’d just like to add my heartfelt thanks to Jim for keeping the spreadsheet updated while I’ve had considerable other calls on my time.

Many thanks Jim, you’re a solid gold trooper.

If you don’t mind what spec and extras if any did you add, also did it come with a parcel shelf?
