      I’ll let you know what happens with mine. 12th feb all ok but it’s arrived too early now it looks like I’m going to lose the car and they’re unsure what they can replace it with. The new match trims are no good for me they lose heated seats. I should hear today. If I cannot have id5 style pro old model im moving back to the Audi which was my first choice but I wavered on AP but my circumstances have changed so I’m happy to pay it now for what I want

      Match trim should have heated it seats.

       

      you’re right !!! It wasn’t on the specifications when I first saw them ( literally the first day they appeared on VW) but they seem to be updated now. I think my id 5 style pro loses the panoramic roof but gains an automatic boot which may suit more people but I’m happy with my spec

          I’m really looking forward to the park assist plus in my ID5 plus the adaptive cruise control. In current car ( and ALL cars) I have to have heated seats plus automatic gearbox ( if they count) . I definitely love preconditioning in the winter and will continue to use that. I believe my next car has 360 cameras for parking and that will be helpful as current car only has limited reversing sensors nothing at the front. I WISH next car had electric adjustment on seats but it doesn’t- I’ll miss that.

          next car has super duper voice control so I think once I’m used to that I’ll like that

              They absolutely should have given you a time slot though . And they needed to leave 4 hours and mine took 4 hours and mine was straight forward

                Now it’s officially afternoon, no

                 

                oh Mark I’m so sorry. It’s really frustrating when this happens and they’ve messed you about too much now.

                  @kezo in fairness they’re trying very hard to. But I think there’s so many people scrambling to get the old model before the match trim launches they’re coming against a lot of pressure. I absolutely cannot fault the dealer.

                   

                  ok they’ve rung and said that this ID5 is going to be allocated to me and will be mine but were vague on the registration number and haven’t updated the motability account to say its arrived and pick up 11th May. So whilst I’m obviously relieved I’m still a little unsure , this is my first renewal so I’m not sure of the process ( the car arrived 10 days ago)

                    in addition I have a spinal cord stimulator and I have found that the fast chargers interfere with it. At home this won’t be an issue as the car will be scheduled to charge overnight when I’m nowhere near it but out and about I’m almost certain I’m going to have to ask someone else to plug it in for me.

                    EV’s along with charging equipment can potentially cause electromagnetic interference (EMI) and strong electromagnetic fields in implanted electrical devices and other battery operated medical devices.

                     

                    actually driving an EV car seems fine and certainly my PHEV has caused no issues either. A three pin granny charger has no effect but an active fast charger or sitting in a car whilst it charges for certain turns my signal off. In my case that means pain and restarting the implant away from the charger, but for others it might be a lot more serious

                      I am going full electric having ‘dabbled’ with my PHEV. But you’re right the weight of the cable chargers needs consideration by us. I’d asked for an 8metre tethered cable but they sent 5metres and having felt its weight I’m glad they did.

                          The Quattro part is really a nice to have not a must have. I’ll keep an eye on here keep me in mind please ? If you look at my previous posts you’ll see I’m serious about the Q4. I should know today or tomorrow if they’re cancelling my id5 order .

                              If we can get one then just depends when it is ready for. Is the 11th the earliest you can take? We wold ideally want in March if we can get these however come May, we will be just as happy i am sure.

                               

                              yes 11th May is my first handover date. Q4 sport Quattro ( not bothered by colour) was first choice car. However ordered id5 which has arrived too early and dealer thinks they’re going to have to give it to someone else, also because of trim change they’re struggling to know what to replace it with. If they can sort it out I will obviously support my original order HOWEVER it’s looking likely they will have to cancel my VW order. If that happens I’m going back to my first choice Q4 sport 45 Quattro. Let me know. I’ll speak to VW. Happy to secure with a deposit

                                Sorry for the delay! There are no Sport Quattro Sportbacks in the UK. I do believe i could get my hands on a Q4 SUV Sport Quattro in Mythos Black. There are 2 in the UK left.

                                is a handover date of 11th May too far away for one of these vehicles?

                                  I’m confused the dealer knows the handover date so if vehicle arrives early they should be keeping it for that date not registering it .

                                  I’m not sure, this is my first renewal ever and also my dealer’s first ever motability order. He’s been so helpful it’s not in his hands however. I’ll just fit in with what the dealership decides tomorrow. If it has to be another order so be it.

                                    Well, car ordered 12th feb, car here and registered. Cannot handover until 11th may motability won’t let the changeover happen unless my current car is no longer suitable for my needs. Car is now going to go elsewhere and I’m back to the drawing board.

                                      Ordered id5 from stock at parkway motors. It’s already at the dealers and being registered

                                      Can I ask when you ordered? Looks like both Pulman VW and Lookers VW they aren’t able to order ID’s from stock now for Motability. But may have to broaden my search distance if other dealerships are still able to.

                                          Install day today. 3rd time lucky. Motability ops even rang me to make sure he’d arrived ! Superb. Anyhoo he was due 1130 arrived 830. All fitted by 1230 but with 5metre tethered cable not the 8 metre I asked for. Definitely a surge protector fitted outside the meter box all neat thanks @kezo. App shows all set up correctly at 32amps again thanks Kezo. Might leave at the 5 as the 8 might be too heavy for me just means a bit of shuffling on the drive.

                                          Yay!!! So happy you got sorted in the end. The cables can be heavy and, as with all cables/ropes, can be a difficult thing to coil up. Something many forget when it comes to those with limited capabilities and charging. I’ve a 10 metre cable which I originally got because people tended to park where they liked despite the charger. It can be an absolute pain to coil up properly as it is both heavy and can get twisted, usually requiring some force to get to coil neatly.

                                           

                                          aahh !! Thank you ! Yes even the 5 metre is quite unwieldy and heavy. It’s exactly why I went tethered so I wouldn’t have to carry cables plus a walking stick ( plus I walk like a drunk) the 8 metre would definitely have been an issue.

                                            You dont lose any good condition bonus if you hand the car back early. I handed my first car back 1 and half years early and I only had to pay £50 plus got good condition bonus once it was handed back. So the £250 people are quoting is prob when your at the start off the lease not at the end.

                                             

                                            I’m going to proceed and see what happens in this process and report back. For context my window for ordering was 10th February 2024 my current car says lease end 13th May 2024. Car ordered 12th May and delivered to dealers from stock. It’s arrived I’m just waiting on it being registered. My account on motability has changed to read ‘current car on extension as you have ordered a new car, the handover date is between you and the dealer’ which sounds to me like a green flag to get on with it.

                                                I might pay the £250 if it’s offered as it’ll move the car to renewal at new plate dates in March
