Sorry to 'hijack' your forum guys, but I ordered& put my deposit down on my new
Golf on 31st May.

It's a 1.4 VW Golf 'Match' TSI
3dr in solid black & the dealer initially (at the time) quoted & said I should be getting it in around 12-13
weeks as it's a factory order - it'll be worth the wait though.

On 18th June he called & said the car is on build week 27 & he
said that in customer language
that
means it will be built in the first week of July!
This is taking much
less time than I thought it would - chuffed to bits!



But how long going from build week's of the same week for your Up's! does it take to build the car to arrival at dealer?

It's just he's quoted end of July as expected delivery to dealer but I'm not sure.


Any help would be appreciated thanks!

Think we were averaging about 4 weeks to collection from build week.

I'm 1 week behind with my up, week 28 or 9th July in real money...hoping for v early August delivery, dealer says can turn it round in a day or two when it comes. Delays seem to be uk docks to dealer and port of entry matters...Grimsby, sheerness or Tyne .

Mine is/was a confirmed week 27 build for my Golf, so does that mean that production for 27's started this Monday (2nd July?)

How long does it take to build the cars?

Yes, takes hours, not days but could be anytime from mon to fri. They don't specify which day, just when it's built. My dealer tells me once it starts he can track it but not until then.

Really?!! That's insane if it is true!


So I could possibly have it sooner than anticipated if it has been built or at most nearing completion?!

This just gets me quite excited - it's been the most painful month & a half.......ever.

Definitely looking at 3-4 weeks from build week to delivery/collection so end July/early August looks about right.

<div id="post_message_3580795">Update:

Dealer called today & said my
car has left the factory & is currently on the boat over to the UK!


Considering
its build week (27) only commenced on Monday this week, that is pretty rapid
from building the car to actually dispatching it - well chuffed!!

Still
looks like end of this month for delivery/collection.

So, that's been 5
weeks from order to shipping - very quick turnaround!
