Starting to feel a bit like an outcast now.

AWD, Grey car with heat pump :cool:

Her who must be obeyed, went through the colours like this - Don't want a red car, already got a blue car, white and silver cars aren't painted, "not black", so grey was the only option.

Not that i'm complaining as I like the idea of it being different, although I here that matte paint must not get wax on it as it destroys the finish. Going to look into getting it ceramic coated so it gets extra protection.

P.S. Blue cars go faster than red cars :D

.... it's not surprising really, Red is classed as a premium colour that you pay extra for with other manufacturers that want to capitalise on the colour choice, eg. Tesla want an extra £2100 o_O

I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered the red was the default colour 😁 Quids-in (y)
I have orderd a Red GT S AWD also but i seem to be the exception s i have orded a heat pump like you say if you buy a Tesla (witch i nearly did) they want £2100 for red and poor pannel gaps and grit in the top coat are free of charge so for me happy to spend the £900 odd on a heat pump if its not fitted you cant make use of it and also will add to the resale value

When you lead the pack its a lonly place, yes i have orderd a heat pump to better with than without, not sure on the matte finish i like a car to shine matte always reminds me of the Ford cars that the clear coat that had come off.
Roll on October

Woo Hoo, leaders of the pack 🐺

Well we will see who gets to say "I told you so" when we get our cars, to see if the heat pumps are worth it.

I think the matte is more like a satin (like the GT in the launch video) so it won't be like an old Ford. Only problem is that it needs a lot more care than "Normal" boring paint 😜

Yeah can't wait till October. Hopefully my dealer will have a demo car June/July although that is probably wishful thinking.

£500 deposit with dealer
How did you manage that🤔 my dealer wanted £2k deposit 😲 needless to say he got £1k with a written "contract varience" stating that the contract can be cancelled at any time with a full refund.

if you buy a Tesla (witch i nearly did)
I DID ... twice! 😯

I nearly went for a Model 3 long range red with white seats but never pushed the button realy wanted a hatch back not a fan of the style and as for the dash board it looked like a kitchen worktop the had a tablet left on it, so for less money the EV6 came along and it was a no brainer Pluss i can take it for service where ever i like

The sales chap just offered it - no negotiation on my part. I did send an email confirming our verbal discussion that the £500 was fully refundable until after I had driven the demonstration EV6. He came back immediately saying absolutely so.

Ive yet to talk to my dealer, but to those that have, has the dealer asked about how the car will be paid for? Any details of finance being offered? Im undecided whether to purchase outright or choose a finance package.

My dealer in Bolton said that they were currently unable to quote finance figures until nearer launch.

I have no idea why as they now know the prices 🥴

It’s because CAP (the car industry price bible I think) haven’t given estimates on residual values. My dealer said to expect those in June and once those were out he’d be able to give finance details.
