I haven't come across anyone else with a week 24 build............am I the only one???

Does that mean I'll get the full attention of the Bratislav workforce and have little Otto delivered at record speed to the docks??

****...............but I bet they can't make a worse job of it than the bods who made the Rover Vitesse I got in 1985. The technicians were despatched from Rover HQ to sort out my watery engine in 1985 and are, as I write, still en route - ie never got here. Must have been in a Rover themselves.

Just got off the phone with my dealer and apparently my car was built at the end of last week which would make it a build week 24 car I think?

I think I was build week 24. Called my dealer today who said it was at the docks and he expected it to be less than 10 days now. Happy days!

Hi VWBeth - that's interesting.

When I came past Grimsby docks on Monday 25 June there were 2 of the big KESS vehicle transporter ships unloading - and in one compound were lots of VW badged cars.

Maybe ours were amongst them

I think they ship to 3 ports; Sheerness, Grimsby and Port of Tyne so it depends on where you live as to where your car is shipped to.

Congratulations on the job, the upgrade and getting a brand new car (I'm 51 and my up! is my first ever brand new car). Hope you hear something soon, you're going to love the up!, I guarantee it

HiI've heard from my sales chap today that my up! is in Grimsby docks waiting for a transporter to move him to Keighley.

I hope your week 24's are also in the transporter queue.

I am fuming with my dealer at the moment rang two weeks ago for an update while my sales guy was on holiday, they told me it had left the factory and was on its way to the docks. so i was expecting my sales guy to ring me today telling me the car was in the country, but to my surprise he told me the same thing I was told two weeks ago.

Nearly there though. The wait gets worse the closer the car gets but if it's already on a transporter, there's no reason it shouldn't be with your dealer by the end of this week and with you early next week.

The call to tell you it's here gives you the most amazing feeling, enjoy

Just had confirmation that out week 24 Black Up! Is in the UK. Should be ready next week. Until then Jimmy at JCT 600 Bradford is lending us a Golf plus for a few days as we have to hand out Mazda 3 over on Sunday. The count down is on.
