Re: Delivery time

I can't wait to see what Utumno's dealer has to say in reply to his email he sent. Popcorn at the ready. 😁 I suspect you'll be waiting a while. This was the latest response, which came in 2 days after my stinker of an email : Thanks for your email. I will email Volkswagen UK with details of the sit...

Re: Delivery time

I cancelled my Tour a couple of weeks back, sadly. It was ordered in August but had a provisional week 24 (end of June) build which was only going to slip further with news from Ukraine. As Utumno has said, none post week 40 last year have escaped the factory. A Kia EV6 GT Line is being delivered ne...

Re: The reason I / you decided on the ID.3

My list was: [ ] Small enough to be completely usable with no hesitations for day-to-day work driving/city driving/parking anywhere [ ] Comfortable and quiet for long distance journeys with fully adjustable seating with lumbar for driver and x1 passenger [ ] Hatch back for Dog/easy loading of items ...

Re: Delivery time

Hi Utumno, Unfortunately another update for the spreadsheet. I have cancelled my Tour order. I can't see any positive news coming out of VW regarding Tour/Max orders and we know Zwickau is currently shut down as well. I have decided to go with an in stock EV6 GT line RWD with metallic white paint an...

Re: Delivery time

Pretty sure that those who can jump ship into a different vehicle that they like, can deliver and is affordable probably should. Kia said I could make a factory order and it would be delivered in 30 weeks (October). I did wonder if this is the same sort of fiction I was fed by VW in August when I w...

Re: Delivery time

Picked up my car this morning having ordered on August 21st. Order number was 3143****. At the time delivery was expected to be 4 months but I expected that to change, has taken nearly 7 months. The dealer told me they are warning new customers of a 60 week lead time plus possible issues over a com...

Re: VW announces restriction in models to be produced.

VW UK are currently offering an enhanced Life spec in Pro pertformance/58kWh only for new orders, so they're doing the same thing as the French subsidiary. They are still apparently going to fulfill existing orders to original spec. I suspect part of the plan from VW is that customers with disconti...

Hi Utumno

Tour update for you for spreadsheet. Just had mine pushed back from week 25 (20 june) to week 39 (26 Sep)

Which will then make it over it’s year anniversary :(

Darren
And I had an update today, no change from week 24 and still unconfirmed. Cheers.

Re: Delivery time

Just got my monthly update "I have had our team to check, and on our SLI system it shows the car is ordered, however it doesn’t give a build week etc yet" ah well, guess i will just get used to watching the Life 22 models come rolling in to people. Sixth month anniversary of order date to...

Re: Delivery time

I ordered my Life Pro Performance, white with alloys on October 11, around 19 weeks before Bosscat, and my provisional build slot is week 36, some 14 weeks after. I'm sorry, but if VW are going to prioritise new orders over those of us who have shown loyalty and given VW the benefit of our doubt an...

Re: Delivery time

I may be one of the first to have ordered a "22 Life" model. I went to the dealers on the 10th of Feb expecting to order a 77Kw Tour, but came away having ordered a 22 Life 58Kw model. The interesting thing is that 5 days later the dealer confirmed a "provisional" build week of ...

Re: Delivery time

This sounds encouraging as it seems VW expect an easing of the chip supply situation as the year progresses and increasing production in 2nd half:

Re: Hello from Cumbria - Tour on order

Hi all, Ordered my Tour on 24th Jan, apparently its safe from the cut in the line up, so i should still get it. I have no idea when though, I think i may be bottom of the list as i ordered it with pretty much everything apart from the decortive vinal transfers and the bigger wheels (the 19s look mu...

Re: Delivery time

I don't think cars are being part constructed and then parked somewhere. I think sub assemblies are probably put together and then stored for many vehicles of a specific type which are then called up from storage once that vehicle is actually built. JiT is designed to minimise inventory and storage ...

Re: Delivery time

Once you have a build week, how long does it take to build the car? I, maybe wrongly, assumed that building a car took a matter of hours/ days. In normal times it would be around a week to build a car, maybe even less. However at the moment build seems to be taking around 8-12 weeks. Even longer fo...

Re: Delivery time

Yes, exactly! When I called out the broker on it, they blamed it on VW as they originally told them it had left and then updated them that it hadn't. Making it harder to trust anything they say now! There is a lot of mis information going around in the absence of any real information! Not that you ...

Re: Delivery time

Wow, a whole year :shock: Just read your signature - you were informed it left factory then subsequently that actually it wasn't built and still awaiting parts!? That's horrendous service. Its one thing to continually blame lack of parts/supply - but to actually be lied to... WOW! Yes, exactly! Whe...
