So, im a week 21'er, and should be built. From the sounds of things, our VW dealers are not entirely sure about anything regarding delivery! Therefore, i am making this post, requesting people WHO HAVE THEIR CARS, or WHO HAVE BEEN GIVEN A CONFIRMED COLLECTION DATE, to list simply two things :
EXACT BUILD WEEK/DATE
EXACT COLLECTION DATE

From this, us people who are waiting for our cars will be able to see REAL timings and gaps between build dates and actually getting the car, rather than the standard "3-4 weeks from build date". From this data, i will collect everything together and make some sort of graph or table, from which i will be able to work out a more accurate estimate. We may find that the waiting time has actually changed over the weeks since production started, and a trend will become visible.

Please keep posts simple and try to keep them in the same format as the person before, so its easy for me, prefferable in capitals and seperated from any other messages/chatting you wish to post in this thread.

Thanks! Hope this works and helps, as the other BUILD DATE post is abit messy now!

To be fair on the dealers, they have no control over the delivery process from when the car leaves the factory until it actually reaches their dealership. My dealer keeps my up-to-date with all the information that he can get but he is as frustrated as me that he is not able to get a date for the car's arrival at the dealership.

If it helps, my car was ordered early March and was built week 20. It left the factory on 17 May and arrived at Tyne this morning where it is waiting to clear customs. My dealer's most hopeful guess is that the car will reach him some time next week although VW officially state that cars can sit at the dock for up to 15 working days!!!

I am aware of that topic, but it isnt very clear, its all mixed up and not easy to compare peoples times. And alot of the data is imcomplete as some people are not aware of some dates. In this post i am asking for just a simple few lines which are clearer, and just for people who actually have their cars or a collection date, rather than an EXPECTED date

That's excellent news Mike and I'm so jealous. I know mine's on the ship now but it's been 10.5 weeks and counting and no sign of me getting it for a couple of weeks yet so good for you to have got yours so quickly
