Thought i would start a post for updates on any impending deliveries.

I believe mine is currently sat at Emden, it arrived there on 8th September and was released to ship on 9th September.

My dealer says there is no real update and that it has "probably moved on a little in the process" - eta is now end of September.

With the VW tracker offline and my dealer either lazy or without access to real updates, i am little out of the loop. VW customer service told me i can only get updates through my dealer. Feeling a little frustrated with the lack of info.

Anyone else expecting their order at the end of September and know anything more? I am in Devon so assume it will come through sheerness but dealer "Can't be sure".

I ordered my car two weeks after you ordered yours.

Initially I was advised the provisional build week was week 35, then moved to week 38. The last update via VW customer services is the provisional build week is going to be week 43.

I am confused how VW are prioritising the build of cars, based on your order date and build date which is 2 weeks later. My car should be built in the next week or 2. But now there's about a further 6 weeks delay.

I've been told that after build, it can take 4 to 6 weeks to reach the UK dealer.

Your dealer should have more details about the whereabouts of your car. But I think they are not bothered like my dealer. All of the updates I received is me calling VW customer service on a regular basis.

I guess delivery times from a European country is something we now have to put up with. Glad I bought an ex Demonstrator. Viewed on a Sunday and checked the furry beast fitted in the back. Took it for a test drive on the Monday and paid a deposit. Paid the balance on Tuesday and picked it up on the Friday. I can’t be doing with all the waiting.

This is him, as you ask. Odd that I choose a car to fit the dog. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Wow! That's quite an animal... I see why you call him Baloo :) he's a handsome fellow.

When i went to look at the ID.4 i took the dog crate from the back of my car and unceromoniously dumped it in the boot to make sure it fitted well and could be secured, we have a small Cocker Spaniel.

Always nice to get an ex demo car, but rare as rocking horse dung at the moment.

@Munchi3 - The car i ordered - there just happened to be the exact model and colour sat in the build queue already, My dealer told me it was allocated to an individual but there was a problem with their order, maybe they pulled out or something - thats why my order to build date was so short, just luck that i took someone else's place in the queue.

If it helps, today i am told there are 3 ships booked to go from Emden to Sheerness for VW - today, the 22nd and the 29th. Mine should be on the ship today and in Sheerness tomorrow, eta to the dealer 25th, collection 30th september.

@r1nse

Thanks for the information on how you got your car quicker due to a possible cancelled order.

My car estimated build date has slipped twice now from the last week of August, then mid September now late October.

Hope you get your car very soon and enjoy!

Our ID.4 was sitting at Emden from 6 Sept, but we were informed by our dealer that it was now on the ship and will be expected into port over the weekend.

I don’t know where it will be heading, we are Scotland so I have read possibly Tyne? I have no idea how it works really.

We have went for glacier white Life 52kwh pure.

When we ordered it in August it was built but waiting for the semiconductor so it has been relatively quick compared to a lot of the factory orders.
