VW ID Configuration down

Post by dinger19 » Thu Jun 03, 2021 6:12 am

Hi, just looking on the VW website trying to configure our replacement ID3 and the configurations are down is it the time of year for the revised model changes.?

Also I hear that in Germany they are getting a petition/legal action up and running by the customers that paid for the heat pump as they are trying to get a refund or price reduction as it does not achieve the claims VW are promoting .?

One final question.....

We have now successfully rejected our ID3 and VW have given us a full refund for our 1st Edition, wha’t sort of discount would you expect because if we we purchase another one with similar spec we will be financially worse off any ideas .

We still want another ID3 as there is nothing out there that comes as close unless you spend mega bucks and we ain’t doing that however we just don’t won’t to be taken for a ride.

Enjoy the sunshine as the ID3 does ;)

The configurator seems to go offline whenever they make changes, no idea what the reason might be on this occasion though - play spot the difference when it comes back online.

There are rumours of the heat pump being reduced in price and a partial refund being paid to owners who added one to their car.

As for discounts, check the VW website, your local dealer, CarWow, and DriveTheDeal.

The VW page shows some: https://www.volkswagen.co.uk/finance-of ... -deals/id3

Thanks for the reply scott28tt,

However as were a one car family we need a car ASAP and we live in the sticks and under VW rejection process they don’t allow you to have a factory build order (as they deem that the rejected car would be fixed to the required standard by the time it takes to have it built and delivered) so you have to either take one they have in stock on there network or they refund you in full ...

We tried Drive the Deal and the guy was insistent that the quickest we could get one was 17 weeks no matter what variant you went for and there’s where the problem lies.

Carwow discounts not really anything special tbh .

If you want a replacement at a reasonable price, immediately available, consider the family spec. I'm picking up a Manganese Grey Family spec with 18" Derry wheels tomorrow, for the Princely sum of £28250 after grant, deposit contribution and a whopping £3750 discount out of the dealerships margin.

I don't think you'll get anywhere near that level of discount in a higher trim

Getting from Heritage group down in Gloucester. The heritage group had a number of them at that level of discount as of Tuesday, in stock and ready to go. When I confirmed mine they still had Glacier White and Stonewashed Blue left with 18" Derrys.

Look.on the heritage vw website and tge offer should still be there, or call one of them up. Smashes the DTD price.

Wow that’s a great price, but sadly miles away from us as were in Kent.

The trouble is that the dealers been really good ,but what would they be like if there were problems with the replacement that came from a different dealer, I don’t think they would be as accommodating tbh and why should they be.

Problems are sorted under warranty, by any VW dealer - VW UK pay them to fix. Only time you'd have to go back to supplying dealer is to reject it.

Miles away? I'm coming down from Newcastle to Gloucester tomorrow to pick up the new car (271 miles!) .

That's the best deal I've seen this year on an ID3, it'll be our second. Almost feel robbed paying £850 less for a life Pro Performance with Glacier White paint and alloys almost 4 weeks ago (also a great deal).

Aren't these Ex Demonstrators / pre-reg cars as opposed to New though? Not knocking that, but if having your name 1st in the register is important to you it might matter. I'm tempted to get a 2nd to replace my wife's Golf Estate and put the savings into a Motorhome.

Nope. Brand spanking new, my wife will be the first registered keeper. Just seen the order form as we're trying to sort the documentation.

I think they got a load of Family spec in just after teh surprise changes to the grant in April and they had cancelled orders come into stock. However they've managed it, these Family specs that weren't eligible for the new grant now are under an RRP adjustment.

Wow.. nice deal, I can only find the Ex-demo Businesses on the site and they seem expensive. Especially compared to that deal.

From what I can see, prices seem to have come down, especially on the higher models. I also noticed additional equipment on some models
