I placed the £2k pre order deposit,
not sure if it will make much difference now as they delayed our pre booking slot

Thanks for that. I haven’t been invited to spec mine yet but don’t suppose they will come through this year as suggested earlier.

I paid the £2k also. Agree that it didn't seem to make a massive difference in the end. Definitely not to be delivered until 2023 Q1 or Q2.
Tesla Model S (current car) has been brilliant at maintaining the battery so degradation has been minimal, but my friend's Leaf is shocking. That's why i was asking about the battery management system.

Hope you get to spec yours soon Steve. I spent hours/days debating all the options with my wife.

Thanks Dazo, I’ve never owned a Tesla and I do believe that their battery management is the best but having owned two id4 I can say with hand on heart that VWs is improving. My current id4 is running the 3.0 software, where the previous car had the 2.3 and I can say that whatever they are doing has certainly improved range. My previous car would typically be about one mile per KWh worse than my wifes id3 but this later model is much nearer to it, even though this car is a fair bit heavier than her 58KWh model.

I’m actually collecting an id5 next month, which should have 3.1 on so it’ll be interesting to see how that performs. That said I can believe it’s going to be a while before we all see a buzz. Thanks for the reply Steve
