Another entry for the spreadsheet.

I ordered an ID.3 Family Pro Performance on the 17th of August, the order number was 31377xxx and I was given a week 38 build date - the car was built on time, but didn't have the necessary chips, so sat around in Germany until the last week. It arrived in Grimsby on the 20th of November and I'm due to pick it up on Monday the 29th. (hurrah!)

Interestingly I notice my order number seems to be lower than some of those taken in July?
Could have maybe been a cancelled order that you took on? Or do you know if it was a fresh factory order?
I spec'd the colour and accessories, so it was definitely a new order - possibly the 'build-slot' had been cancelled by a previous customer? (this is just blind-guesswork though)

Also, on my finance agreement the car is now listed as a 62Kw?!
That's correct, but only 58kW is made available for use

Added, and thanks for the info ! Your order number is within 7000 cars of my order number, so maybe there's hope for me getting the Tour in January after all (I've written December off !)

There’s hope for my Family Pro Performance with a few options ordered 15 Aug number 3152**** by March by the sound of things then (?)

Not sure how you'd assume that?

July orders are taking 6 months, so the later orders will, in theory be increasingly worse.

August to March is 6-7 months (not even taking into account the christmas/new year shutdown) - I'd assume nearer April/May, unless they all of a sudden fix things in that time.

Hi tomstring,

Looking at your order no. 3152xxx for an August order seems a bit high, for your reference ordered on last week of September and the order no. is 3147xxxx. The dealer say will be delivered in March / April, it is for my Dad’s 75th birthday present, hopefully he got it before his birthday!

Thanks

I was told my order was initially on a waitlist (whether that’s true or not I’ve no idea). Really hoping to get before my existing car is 3 years old on 30th April as it gets a bit complicated after that. Thanks everyone.

Good to hear that some people are able to place an order after 1st November and get an order number so know they are “in the system”. We are still awaiting Heritage Gloucester to place the order on VW so as to get our order into the system. Sure they have their reasons and the sales person is really nice. Although the end of June 22 date they quoted for a delivery estimate is certainly looking iffy. Only time will tell.
Hi EVOwner101. I placed my order for an ID.3 Life Pro with Heritage Gloucester on 17/11/21 with an estimated delivery date of 11/7/22. If you don't yet have your factory order number, I guess I shouldn't expect mine yet..
I ordered from the same dealership around the same time but in October. My estimated delivery date is the end of April.

This is the interesting thing… I enquired about changing a option and I was told that’s ok. Then I asked about changing the model from Life to Family and he advised me against it. He said that the car I’ve ordered was one they probably ordered for stock month ago and they have changed the factory order to meet my spec because they still haven’t built it yet. He said if I changed from life to family it would probably take at least a mont more to deliver.

I’ve got several factory options on my order so I can’t see a reason for him to make that up… plus I was actually trying to spend more!

The “waitlist” makes sense. Looks like your dealer didn’t order your car until it had allocation to do so, and it looks like that’s taken several weeks after the point of your order to actually get ordered at the factory. Which means you’ve got an unusually high order number compared to your order date.

Interesting... My order number is 3151xxxx but I got confirmed order 26/10/21? Maybe I got a cancelled order slot?
