I got confused. I thought that it meant total, not fill the GAP. OOPS!!!

It will be my car. Bought with some money left to me by my now dead parents. So it's a car to keep forever, that's why its fully loaded and a bespoke colour.

GAP is a must if its your own cash but even more important if its leased or on borrowed money. If you have a loss you could be caught for remaining payments and your insurance settlement is likely to be low. GAP puts you right back to total car value so it its needed say in year three you get back to full new value for a premium of 150 approx.

Correct that a lot of insurers pay full value in year one, thats why you can buy gap policies that don't kick in until end of year one.

Yes, initially I was told May but the indications are April. However I will wait until March for the first production to see how it goes as it can move back or forward.
