Hi upidge and welcome to the forum. Congrats on choosing the up! Hopefully the time will fly by, although to be fair, I feel like I've been waiting forever. Ordered mine on 23rd March and finally picking him up tomorrow YAY.

You'll have lots of fun with us during the wait though, happy posting

You seem to have ordered a couple of weeks earlier than me but been given a build date of a week later...??

Perhaps your salesman is erring on the side of caution.

Ps welcome to the forum !

I love the colour! My parents are waiting to see mine and then they will probably order a blue one.
I've never had a vw before so I'm really excited!! How come you couldn't take it on Friday?
It must be worse knowing that it's sitting there and you can't drive it yet.

Hi and welcome to the forum! The car you've ordered sounds great.I think it's worth knowing though that if there is any flexibility in what you want then the dealer might be able to get you a car more quickly by liasing with other dealers who might, for example, have cancellations. This also applies if you have a pretty standard spec. I have to say that my dealer never offered to even try to get me a car this way and the last time we spoke he said they were telling new orders they'd have to wait until December!! As it happens I preferred to wait for exactly what I wanted, but I know that another customer ordered 3 days before me and picked up his car this week - mine is only being built next week! Hope your car comes quickly

Thanks upidge. He only arrived at the dealer on Thursday so they still needed to check him over and valet him, I just had to go in and sign some stuff for the registration. You're right though, it was very difficult to give the key back to the salesman and even worse when I watched him drive MY car round to their garage. Ah well, this time tomorrow

Thanks yapmaul, the salesperson never told me that but I'm with you on that one
I would rather have exactly what I wanted and wait a little bit longer but I didn't expect to have to wait this long!
They haven't confirmed the build date yet but the system says 29, the guy said it could come forward or go back.

Clowesa I know how u feel I found it difficult getting out of the car on the test drive!!

I have to agree with you and yapmaul. Better to wait for exactly what you want than compromise and perhaps regret the decision.

Just think of the wait as half as long as the time between dental checkups, and we all know how quickly they come round don't we

Upidge I was told it would be a 12 week wait from order, it turns out it will be 8 weeks and 2 days, I'm collecting on Wednesday


Welcome to the forum, don't be shy and get involved.

All I will say is that it's like every other forum and seems to have its trolls. Be wary of posters who join and post nothing but negative comments. That said, they are few and far between.

Enjoy the wait

Hi bugbabe34 thank you very much. I was told 16 weeks when I ordered it, but if what the salesperson
Says is true it will be 18-19 weeks. It seems from what people are saying in the forum some are getting their cars a lot quicker than others! It's worth the wait but I'm just too excited!
Its brilliant reading post from people that already have their cars as It gives me a heads up on some things
What model have you ordered?

I look forward to seeing pictures of it... Especially in interior as that's what I have gone for.
I thought about the panaromIc sunroof but none of the garages near were I live had one.

I ordered it blind having not seen it in the flesh.

Heres hoping that the seats are worth the money

Leatherette seats are really nice, ...very high quality....think Mercedes Artico rather than rover vinyl !The demo I drove had them but my son, who is going to own the car ultimately preferred cloth. Actually I think it was the striped pattern he likedEdited by: Privatedoc

The main reason I picked them is because I have cats and no matter how much I defluff, fluff always ends up on the car seat. At least this way it will all end up on the floor

That's a good point I have 2 white cats and my current car interior is covered in cat hair! I did like the cloth but because I have gone for a candy white I liked the white line around the edge of the seats... I know it sounds silly but I like the little details.
