Well when we initially ordered we were told there was one in the system which we were going to be able to get by second week of June but we knew that was too good to be true and we knew it was just a salesman wanting a sale.

Have just been told that even though we were given Build week 26 it may be later but we have been told, we will only get delivery last week of July or first week of August and we have not been kept up to speed on anything.

Given that this is week 27 now, it is worth getting the order number from the dealer and checking with VW directly - the magic word with a build week is confirmed (code 20), if it is unconfirmed (code10) anything could happen !!



It is then 3 to 4 weeks for dealer delivery & 3days to 2 weeks for the dealer to do his bit !!

I have asked for an order number from them and Lookers have said that it is their policy not to give these out because if you use the number and contact VW they will usually tell you to refer to your dealer and this makes you go around in circles. I get this and will just wait for them to give us info and updates as they get it. Just annoying having to wait. I know that 6 weeks is not that long really. I just have no patience.

Have been given the order number. So onto the Order site I went and it now shows order is in transit. I am not sure howaccuratethis is though.

winging its way to you...think it goes to 'in transit' when it actually leaves factory so could be anywhere, either just left bratislava, on the boat or anywhere in-between

guess my wk28 is still sitting at factory waiting for a lift!

I wish it was more precise though but then again it would get you very excited for too long. I would say it should come into Sheerness if I am in the South but hey don't know. What would be really cool would be to tell you stuff like on the ship departed. How long does it take to sail from Bratislava to UK anyway?

We were told by dealer that the car is in the country but the tracking system says it still in Transit and I think the dude at lookers is talking rubbish.

Excitement is not the word. So now I am not sure where it goes from here. I presume it is then registration time and then final bits, not sure how long it will be from here on in.

Mine arrived at the dealer on the Wednesday and I picked up last friday. There were traces of hasty polish removal but did I care about that? Give them a ring and then the fun can begin!
