Yes, he got it commissioned, he said commissioning system was goosed yesterday but is working today. Presumably I can forward a picture of my V5 for the ID3 (came Tuesday, only picked it up last Saturday!).Nice one. Did the engineer manage to commission yours right away? He couldn't do mine on the day and I had to wait a week for a remote commissioning, which was done yesterday.
I applied directly and got a £25 credit from them, so they shouldn't be able to use that excuse with me. They might deduct the £2/ credit from the VW offer, but if they do then fair enough.Had a reply from them - asking if existing customers qualify:
We do have an offer for existing customers but unfortunately, this isn’t available to customers that have come through other third parties such as price comparison websites. This is because we already offer significant discounts through our exclusive tariffs on these websites.
I can't remember how I joined Octopus, so I've emailed them anyway with order and account details to see what will happen. They can only say "No" at worst.I applied directly and got a £25 credit from them, so they shouldn't be able to use that excuse with me.

I've pretty much stopped using top cashback. I have more refused cashback that has tracked correctly that that which goes through straight away over the last year.
Are Octopus already receiving your smart meter readings already? They aren't mine yet - they say it can take up to two weeks:Been on the phone and been sent a link to apply for GO. Just filled it in and the response reads like they're unaware of my smart meter installation and I'll need to arrange an install. Hopefully that status will change after they've had a steady few half hourly.meter readings.
Asked about the VW offer and was told it can be done once I'm officially on GO.
I'm hoping they are, apparently takes a string of half hourly uploads to the mothership to confirm connection stability. Hope they don't take 2 weeks about it, but if they do, I can live with 5p a mile for a few weeks.Are Octopus already receiving your smart meter readings already? They aren't mine yet - they say it can take up to two weeks:
"Smart meter installed
Your smart meter is installed, and we're working on connecting to it. Sit tight, as this can take up to two weeks."
On that basis, I'll expect £65 to add to the £25 I already got on joining Octopus.I had an older smart meter already and thought I’d have to wait for a new one to be installed. But surprisingly I found they had linked up to the old one and everything was up and running 4 days ago!
Literally just now got confirmation of £40 VW credit to add to the £50 referral credit I already received. Happy days.
I would say it sparkles. Not that it’s been cleaned that often!Does your Glacier White paint sparkle? I haven't seen mine on a sunny day yet (its been grey since I got it on Saturday), but to me it's looking like a solid white with a slight blue/violet tinge.
If there was a solid white paint option I'd swear I've been diddled! Mine has the "just been sealed" shine, just there seems to be no metallic grain shimmering in it.I would say it sparkles. Not that it’s been cleaned that often!
I’ll try and wash and photo it in the next day or so. I’ll explain to my wife Mr. Monkeyhanger is interested:0)
I spoke to the Service Manager at the dealers about this and it's not metallic, it's pearlescent, so more nuanced and creates shading rather than sparkle..If there was a solid white paint option I'd swear I've been diddled!

Mine was remotely commissioned on Thursday. I noticed that overnight all the 30 minute readings have appeared on the Octopus site, going back to when the meter was first installed more than a week ago. This morning they emailed to confirm I am now on Go. Apparently I can ask them to backdate my billing to that which I would have had if I had been on Go since the meter was installed. I may do that as I did charge my car a couple of times in that period.For reference, it took 4 days for Octopus to recognise my meter and because I'd asked for the smart tariff on joining, that was changed 2 days later. Very efficient.
My meter has recommissioned itself twice in the last 6 months, don't know what that's about but everything is working so not c once about it.
