Once you reserve does anyone know when we can "place our order"? Is this the point where we put down the additional $400 or the actual financing the vehicle part? Will we be contacted by email to do this?
My dealer just called back (I think I finally found a good dealer!). It is the same as the FAQ on the myVW site, next we will receive an email inviting us to make the $400 payment. If we do not reply or login to the myVW page, we will receive a reminder email. If we miss the reminder, we lose the reservation.Once you reserve does anyone know when we can "place our order"?

Sounds reasonable. I reserved the Pro knowing I wouldn't be ready for the 1st Edition in time. I just wish we could get the Pro Performance (or whatever the name is) like they have in Europe.The $400 is still refundable, so (after confirming refundable with your dealership), just keep going, if you want. Not sure how late payment terms can be done, possibly as late as delivery. I doubt they would have any trouble selling the refused units, given the popularity of the 1st (despite the white steering wheel!).
The configuration is locked as of the $400 payment, but I am not sure that has any meaning for us 1st reservations, I do not think we get any options to choose from?
oh, BTW, my dealer was pretty certain this will be a lease with a no penalty early buyout option!
Texas is probably way down the list ...VW customer service says we should get the next email for "place your order" in about a week or less. Low emission states will receive the first delivered ID.4, customers in about the order by time of reservation. Sounds like non-ZEV states follow, probably/possibly with some overlap, and then in their order by reservation (a guess).
I think the low emission states "ZEV" (zero emissions) are California, Washington, Colorado, Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, and Vermont
