I had some great news today after chasing up my order yesterday with my dealer which was placed last Sept for a new ID4 52kw pure in Kings Red. I had been told a while back it was to be a build week 50 and delivery Feb/Mar.
However we all know deliveries have been sparse and being put back due to parts shortages etc so was half expecting not to see it any time soon. However my dealer came back to me today and said:
“Good Morning Keith
Your car has got a Chassis number so is complete, and showing status 38, so is at the German port waiting to be collected and bought over, all the customs paperwork is complete so just needs a boat. I guess we’ll see it within a week or so.
Ill keep an eye on the status’, but really not too far away now.
Speak to you soon, Many Thanks Simon.”
So really chuffed that it’s almost here which is a relief as our current 4 year old Tiguan has been having an issue with the amber emissions light on the dash for the last couple of weeks. They had it in for three days and replaced a part only to find when I drove it off their forecourt the light came on again. This was after a bill for over £300 to fix.
It’s gone back in again today and they are keeping it for 2-3 days to track down the issue and properly fix it I hope.
We have a courtesy car while it’s in, an MGHS auto petrol and after driving it for 30 mins I shall be glad to see the back of it. It nowhere near compares to the Tiguan but at least we have a car to get us around so we are grateful for that.
I must say I have loved the Tiggy it’s been a lovely car to drive and fault free for almost 4 years, this being the first problem we have had. I am very much looking forward to the new ID4 though which compares well to the Tiggy size wise but a much nicer driving experience being electric.
