With ID.4 orders set to open in 8 days, does anyone have any strategies on ordering online? I am worried about their website crashing, not that we can do anything about that.

Anyone have any stories about ordering the ID.3 First Edition?

I'm making sure I will be on a wired connection, but other than that, not sure how to prepare. Just hope for the best!

Oh no, I'm sorry!

I'm going to be hanging out on this forum for emotional support in case anything goes wrong, lol!

But I have high hopes, I will just assume everything will go okay.

What versions are you guys looking at?

Originally I was thinking the 58 kWh battery and rwd but if awd and the bigger battery is $5-6k more I may be more interested in that. Plus that will give me more time to save for a bigger down payment.

I want the awd. Depends on pricing and my inability to have patience.

I am fine with FWD. If we have 3 choices of battery I would like at least the middle option. I am most interested in the extras like heads-up display, travel assist, and panoramic roof, so I'm worried those may cost a bit much.

Medium battery at a minimum for me as well if there’s 3 options. I’m worried about packages too that contain stuff that will really drive up price.

There are bunch of hints at the link below (Jimellis VW of Atanlanta), but be clear, it could all be wrong. There may be information from a VW meeting last November (esp. because more recent posts seem to put all of the prices $5k higher, in comparison to prices in the UK or EU).

Meet The Volkswagen ID.4 (Release Date, Specs, & Dimensions)

VW is not taking reservations yet, so the whole page is questionable (unless this dealership is just collecting names for the 23rd), however a google search this morning shows a similar page for a WA dealership, so this might be related to the 23rd.

Also, the ID.4 is rear wheel drive or all wheel drive (motor and drive both in the back, but supposedly good weight for planting the rear tires in snow).

I am starting to wonder if we even need to worry about how fast we get our reservations in. Looking around the forums and googling ID.4, there is modest interest at best.

Between COVID (including less miles, and income uncertainty) and Tesla ("Battery Day" announcements on the 9/22), at least at the beginning of ID orders, there may not be that much demand on day 1.
