      That’s the reason I’ve put it up. No one seems to be reviewing the ( much better) model and all over everywhere are the reviews of the old software model with the gremlins in the software.  Be interesting to see what you think when it arrives but I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

        I think if the Hyundai EV6 GT came on I would be very tempted. There’s loads of new stock around too so would be quick delivery! I’m surprised Motability Operations don’t look at stock cars in the current manufacturing delay climate, I’m sure it would please a lot of people if stock cars which are ready available were allowed on the scheme to help fulfil the backlog of orders! 🤔 If only temporarily!

        my ID5 was a stock car ?

          In my opinion. This is just an outgoing government threat ( conservative) that the incoming government will immediately override for brownie points ( Labour) to hide all the banker incentive policies that Labour will still implement.

            @crippledad the dealer is wrong. I was in the same position ( extended because of backlogs) I had one month left when I ordered in February

              It’s all those 0 to 60s you’re doing at traffic lights watching owners of expensive sports cars crying in your rear view mirror/tyre dust.

              on a serious note I’m not getting this on the id5 but do notice that anything above a steady 70 drops the range drastically.

                The Volkswagen ID group have fixed the software glitches that plagued the earlier models. The ID4 is only £49 after the new car payment leaving you cash to add in electric seats (£1600 I think from memory) also several in build so you might get one sooner than a factory order.

                  @matt9815 completely agree. Our front hallway windows were smashed and entry gained to steal both our cars while we were all in bed upstairs. Number one priority was keeping the kids safe. This was 2007.

                      Ahh that’s terrible, so sorry. I bought a pack of two faraday pouches off Amazon for my key and the spare to live on when not in use. The range extenders these thieves use are very powerful.

                          Aahh! Good to know thanks @phaedra I did see your original post on this in the Enyaq when I was still choosing between the ID5/enyaq/q4 I hadn’t realised it hadn’t been sorted yet. That’s really disappointing to hear I know the sound system was very important to you.

                            Cannot fault the my24 model ID5 everything is superb. Would I upgrade to Harmon kardon next time ? Yes. Probably. But driving wise everything has been fixed, ID4 similar from what I’ve read.

                              You’ll really enjoy it @sagwala all the complaints that people had on the ID forums have clearly been listened to and completely fixed. It’s a superb car.

                                @peterf that’s incredible efficiency. We are getting around 3.3 but then we are playing with EVERYTHING. Maps /aircon/ acc/ heated seats ( I know heated seats and air con sounds weird but a spine made of metal has interesting needs) . Intelligent octopus go is brilliant I put what time I want the car charged for and to what percentage and it maps when it charges depending on low grid usage. Even if outside of the 11.30 pm to 4.30 am low tariff if it decides the grid usage is low it charges the car and still gives us the 7.5 p rate. So far I cannot fault anything about either the new model id5 or BEV in general. I’m a convert.

                                  @peterf it’s a great colour seems to hide muck too. It’s the free one so I think that why people avoid it but I really like it. No, not done motorway yet it’ll get a run out tomorrow of a 160 mile round trip motorway so we’ll see then. Ohme charger app seems not to be speaking to the charger and I can’t work out why but the VW app and octopus EV intelligent go are all working ( perhaps they’re overriding the Ohme ?) and it charged on 7.5 p smart rate last night so 🤷‍♀️. It’s enormous- the pictures don’t do it justice makes it look like a normal car but I just parked it next to a Range Rover and it was similar sized and the id5 wheels were far bigger ( makes for an extremely comfortable ride) .

                                    Trying to find excuses to go out in it. I’m slowly working all the stuff out. This new software is very responsive and the buttons have a good depression feel to them and are backlit ( all things the older model of the ID 5 were criticised for) . Boot is HUGE. I seem to be getting 3.2 miles/kwh which bearing in mind I’m playing around with it I don’t think is too bad

                                      @kj35 – Nice symbolism with the photo of the car outside the maternity home. Long awaited new addition to the family, pricey but not as expensive as actual babies. Looks great, enjoy.

                                        Oh it’s SO GOOD. You won’t be disappointed. I just accidentally turned on the driver assist ( I think that’s what it’s called ) and it virtually drove me around town slowing for roundabouts speeding back up , sensing the road hazards perfectly , knowing when speed limits changed. All I had to do was steer the wheel- GAME CHANGER for a disabled person. Obviously I didn’t trust it completely and hovered over the brake but it wasn’t necessary. Every doubt and concern I had about going electric or getting the ID5 completely out of the window. Completely the right choice for me.

                                              3 sleeps until pick up on my grey ID 5 style pro. Very excited ( bit of trepidation as the forums seem full of people with issues but it does seem to be the older models)

                                                @kezo £51 including postage I used a mate’s  account as I don’t have one any longer. Possibly a bit over the odds but seller has good feedback and I’m happier with that than the £240 VW wanted.


                                                @mfillingham
                                                it’s exactly why I wanted one, just to make sure I’ve got enough charge to get me to a fast charger. I fully intend to stay with electric cars if they keep selling them so I’m sure it’ll get some use over the years.

                                                    Good question. I visit a friend frequently who lives very rurally. I’m picturing being able to plug in overnight to at least buy me a few miles to get to a fast charger . Alternatively I am also considering what would happen if something goes wrong with my fitted charger. But you’re right both those scenarios are probably unnecessary ( ie I can charge at the motorway services 30 miles before her house or here if my charger fails I’d be able to use a neighbour’s)

                                                      Does it have to be VW branded do you know @kezo ? Or just any type 2 granny charger?
