Hi guys, I've just placed an order for a shiny new High Up!
It's a red bluemotion with the usual bells and whistles.
The order was originally placed with an online broker-
'Drive the deal'. I just missed out on one which was all
ready to go and would have been here in three weeks.
Now I have to wait approx. 14 weeks for it to come from the
factory.
My question is : is this a normal lead time? Drive the deal
secured a pretty good discount so I don't mind waiting but
March seems like ages away. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
This seems like a great forum with lots of good advice so I'm
Looking forward to becoming a regular.

I ordered mine the 9th of Nov and the status changed today from "build week confirmed" to "its on its way". I'm guessing another 2-3 weeks before its in my hands making it 8-9 weeks total!

Thanks for the reply. There aren't any in the spec that I want so I guess I'll just have to wait.
I will check up on the lead time though. Seems way too long.

If it comes in March you should miss the bad weather

It will also be on the new plate if you get it in March. It may be down to certain options that you have selected that is making it take 14 weeks.

I ordered on 18th November and it showed "build week 15th Dec". It then
went to "In Transit" today 20th Dec.
That's about 5 weeks from order to "In Transit". I'm guessing the next bit until delivery will
take about 3-4 weeks so that will be 8-9 weeks in total.

The only thing I'm worried about is that it went from "Build Week Assigned" to "In Transit"
without every showing "Being Built". Maybe they are shipping an empty box!

Exactly the same as mine. I was given build week starting 15th Dec and it missed 'your car is being built stage'
