I cant see any VW ships heading for Tyne this weekend but the "City of St Petersburg" is on it's way to grimsby - this is a well known RORO used by VW and is due to arrive tomorrow at 1500. Maybe yours is on there?

Same choice as mine in a different colour and similar luck on the order it seems. I hope it finds it's way to you swiftly and you enjoy it.

Tip: if you are with Octopus for energy - they are doing a good deal at the moment through them - a selection of chargers that sync with their tariffs at a discount. if you also bank with Natwest they have offer a further discount.

I got my Wallbox Polsar Plus for £500 fully installed. They do the paperwork for the gov funding and arrange everything - mine is being installed this monday with a tethered cable

Sorry this is just me being nosy, but if you don’t mind me asking - is there any reason why you chose the Wallbox over the other chargers available?

No need to apologise, happy to share.

Of the 4 available on the deal:

* Ohme charger - requires a good 3g/4g signal to work - it doesnt use wifi and i have terrible service where i live.

* EO Mini Pro - Requires an earthing device, basically they dig up the drive/path and put a large rod down but can be installed with a "Garo earthing device" - either way i didnt want extra kit and it only does scheduled charging and doesnt link to EV cars APIs for Smart features.

* Zappi is over kill for my needs, its big and expensive and only really full justified if you have solar linked in with it.

* Wallbox was a happy medium for me, looks good, works with Octopus smart tariffs, has wifi or bluetooth for connectivity . Has built in earthing unit, connects with Alexa and the final piece was an app for my smart watch.

There are many reviews on all of them and they are all positive. I chose the one that seemed to suit me the best, may not be for everyone.

Thank you so much, exactly what I needed to read as I am so clueless. We have a poor signal here too so good to know to avoid those!

Hot off the Press!

So I thought I would pester my dealer again for an update lol! It would be rude not to phone him at least once a day haha! :D

anyway! finally its on its way! apparently there is a delivery of 8 ID4's and mine is one of them, Interestingly enough 7 out of the 8 have all been sold.

Hopefully yours @r1nse is on another transporter on its way to your dealership too!

fingers crossed and best of luck everyone! look forward to seeing everyones pictures very soon!
