Hi All,
I ordered an id.3 from my local VW dealer in Dundee on the 31st October 2021. All very easy and relatively painless.
An estimated delivery date of the 2nd May 2022 has come and gone. I still don't have a build date which means the car isn't going to be here for a few months more.
As a sometime lurker, I am aware of all the reasons for the delays VW are trying to cope with, some of which are out with their control.
I wish it wasn't so but it is what it is.
The salesman has started to phone me at the beginning of each month to 'update' me on any progress on the build date. That's a short conversation.
Anyhoo, this forum is a pretty good source for all things id.3.
Have a great weekend

Welcome mate! I'm sure someone on here recently said that cars were arriving at the dealerships but the systems were still playing catch up..still sitting at code 00 etc.
So whatever the dealership has on the screen could be old news and not updated yet.

Ordered the 20th of August 2021

I have no order number, unfortunately.

Hi and welcome,
Woo hoo another Dundonian, well I'm in Wellbank but close enough, few more and we'll be able to have an owners meet :)
I enquired at Barnetts and was told it would be around a year, that was in January so looked for a low mileage used, found one in Newcastle and loving every minute of it.
Sure we will meet at a charger in Dundee at some point once you take delivery.

Father in Law, also from Dundee, ordered an ID3 in September and was told May, then June, delivery. Still nothing for him yet.

Thanks for the welcome, it's a waiting game. At least the software will be improving all the time

I'm actually from across the bridge in a wee place called Fife, but pretty near Dundee. :D

I'm sure or path will cross somewhere

It was, We tested a few cars in Dundee, the id.3 suited us the best.

I live in Fife, but that might be a suburb of that fine city

Greetings from near Livingston - we ordered from a choice of one trim level in March when lead times were 60+ weeks and recently got an update from Western to say our build date is September. Optimist in me hopes for this year some time - we will see.

We tried everything (including the Model Y) and I used the Co Wheels Car Club in Dundee to try the MGS and i3 and the id.3 suited us best too, which was a pleasant surprise.
