Yes, it’ll be interesting to compare notes - I’ve ordered at JCB Medway.
Yep, mine is through JCB Medway too. I can only assume they’re selling a huge volume of cars to be able to discount to the level they are. The car I’ve ordered, a Max Pro Performance with a list price of a whisker under £40k was slashed by 11% to £35.5k. My local dealer claimed they only make 3% on ID.3s.
Ordered 9th October 2021 – Max Pro Performance | Manganese Grey | Andoyas | Bike Carrier Prep

Ordered Manganese Max with East Derry alloys on 5th August, got order number on the 12th. Initially estimated 20 week lead time. Build week estimated 45. Just contacted the dealer today, build week estimate is now 47 now, so I'd guess early Jan for delivery.
Family Pro \ Manganese \ Derry Alloys \ Estimated 20 week lead time when ordered

Also got my order number on the 12th (Week 32). VW chat last week didn't have any update, emailed the dealer who has also given me an estimated build week of 47.

So fingers crossed for a Jan delivery, will be good to get a confirmed build week.
Family Pro \ Managanese \ East Derry
Order Number received 12th Aug (Week 32)
Estimated Build week 47

Not sure how it works for them, but from what I remember, Ford used to give a 'free' car to a dealership if they hit their targets, so I guess (in theory) the margin from each one could be spread out across a lower margin on others.

e.g. profit made from volume bonuses, rather than individual cars.

I trust you have not included the £1750 PPC discount in your 11% calculation as this is not from the dealer's margin.
£33,500 + £17500 is the real price from the dealer if you did,

This is less than 7% dealer discount.
9 Sep 21 Ordered ID.3 Family Pro in Stonewashed Blue with East Derry Alloy Wheels (price lower than DTD).
13 Sep 21 PCP approved and VW Order number provided.
24 Sep 21 Temporary build week 43, told to expect a March 22 delivery.

The 11% is the total discount including the VWFS finance contribution. £39980 to £35450 (£2780 dealer discount, £1750 finance contribution).

My local dealer claimed that they make 3%, so £1200 on a £40k car. Even if they were happy just breaking even (and why would they?), the total discount including finance contribution would be £2950, or £1580 short of the DTD price.

Do not believe the 3% margin claim.
I assumed a 10% dealer margin and did not include the delivery charge or first registration fee.

I got over 8% pure dealer discount excluding PCP discount and in my case the government grant.
I beat DTD, but it was hard and for many not worth the effort. I got lucky on my last call.
A few days later DTD reduced their discount, so my saving was even higher.
But I have to drive 135 miles to collect, if it ever arrives!
I would pay up to £300 more for a local deal but their deal was not even close.

I think I’m going to ask for a cost to trailer my car up to me. The dealer is 230 miles away so I think it would be money well spent. Either that or it’s a good opportunity to get accustomed to the new car!
