Wonder if the interior style plus add on on your car Tomofife is because of this? Otherwise may be time to cancel the order and re-order a match variant!
Hey, no the added pack is due to the grade I am at work. The ID4 was available originally at my grade and lower grade. The lower grade got the 170bhp version of the 77kw battery in Life trim and my grade could select the Pro Performance (204bhp) and thats what was originally on the lease company portal for me.

However, as it was ordered by the company just before the announcement of the updated models and the build ween hadnt been allocated, they upgraded my grade to the 286 bhp to add the seat pack (for new orders) and without the seat pack for the lower grade. It then seems this has transposed over to my order too.

So as its a company car, no real option to cancel and re-order - happy with what I am getting, although if had ordered as a private customer, I think I would be a tad irked.
Wild guess - you are a grade M5?

The spec of the match is actually lower than the style yes it gets an electric tail gate but looses the pan roof the 3 zone A/C,

Correct - with 75k people working for the same company, and I knew that they ordered at least 75 ID4's in August when my order was placed, I knew I would see colleagues on forums and the facebook groups.

I'm M6 and have also seen the spec of the car change on the Lex portal a few days ago. Stock date showing as 22nd March, but no confirmed delivery date as yet

I guess so - Starts with an M?

When did you order yours and do you know what week it was built?

My current personal lease goes back in a couple of weeks, have a request in for a hire car if the Id4 isnt here soon but hoping not to need it.

Yes starts with an M.

I actually only ordered mine in November with an estimated stock date of March 29th. But I suddenly got an update a couple of weeks ago to say is was ready for delivery from 19th February. It was built on 30th January (according to paperwork) so think that is week 5, so I don't actually know how I managed to get it so quickly when I know of people who ordered in like July/August of last year and they still haven't taken delivery. 🤷‍♂️
