How do I get a roof rack? I see lot's to put on the rack but no the rack itself.
In the order guide, these should be option code IBR "Roof Rack Base Carrier Bars (set of 2)." $365

Yakima, Thule and Rhino Rack aren't showing ID.4 yet.

Someone tell me you can get an aftermarket cargo net for cheaper than $100. It looks like this one fits many VW models- how can they possibly justify this price?

That's pretty much always the case. $46 for a USB-C to USB-A cable seems about right though!

After looking around, the VW price for the rubber mats and liner seems like a good price. Are the rubber mats best for people living with rain and snow rather than the weather in California, or Arizona?

Rubber mats are great to keep dirt (dust, pebbles, accidental shewing gum or dog poop) off the carpet not just rain and snow. They are also, extremely easy to clean. I just hose them off with water.

I resent that, those grass clippings from golf courses are tough to get out of carpets! I think rubber mats are best regardless of where you live - especially for the three days a year when it rains.

I know this sounds like nagging: but still not divider between cargo and passenger space, as it was available on the Tiguan for example. I read somewhere here in the forum that the British manual has some instructions for anchor points, but I have yet to see a divider.

Thanks ErickF! I'll definitely be getting the dimming rearview mirror if not dealership available upon delivery. Mojo Mats too. ;)

Perhaps the Tiguan one will work or may be slightly modified?

I assume you're getting it for the HomeLink buttons? A non-HomeLink auto-dimming rearview mirror is standard on all ID.4 models in the US.

One of the accessories is a 19 inch "winter wheel". I've heard of winter tires, but not winter wheels (rims). I'm not a car expert, so maybe I'm just ignorant. Is there really something to this that makes it better for winter? Here's the link:

鈥漌inter wheels鈥 is mostly a clever marketing moniker. However they are typically smaller diameter than 鈥淪ummer wheels鈥 to accommodate tires with taller sidewall profiles as a bit of pothole protection and more flex area for the softer Winter tire compounds.
They are also typically less expensive both due to smaller diameter but also in material composition. The rationale being not to spend too much on wheels that could be Winter sand/salt and again pothole damaged. Likely the linked are still alloy but many go with even less expensive steel wheels in Winter.

That is typically the case, but these are still 19" and $365 per wheel (without tires/mounting). Not really the low cost option for winter (and the ID.4 in Europe is available with 18" wheels so imagine 18" would fit here as well).

Yes, that's the point I was [apparently poorly] attempting to make. There are even smaller diameter (18") and lower cost materials options out there for true "Winter wheels."

But I applaud VAG none the less for an aesthetically pleasing, if still expensive, and readily available option.
btw: Audi does the same but I've typically gone with similar-to but less expensive Rial wheels (originated in Germany and now produced in Poland last time I checked; same wheel construction methodology as VAG vendor).
