Chances are your car may be worth more anyway! Used car prices climb and climb...

I ordered a Glacier White Life Pro Performance yesterday, and have also been told 'delivery will be 30 weeks', so around May 8th if all goes well!

Then they'll drop like a stone when normal output for new cars is restored. Some people buying nearly new cars during this unprecedented spike are going to lose a fortune in depreciation when the bubble bursts.

So you and I have ordered on the same weekend, albeit a different car. Be interesting to hear how yours progresses. What dealer did you go through?

Ordered Manganese Max with East Derry alloys on 5th August, got order number on the 12th. Initially estimated 20 week lead time. Build week estimated 45. Just contacted the dealer today, build week estimate is now 47 now, so I'd guess early Jan for delivery.

@pondsman that’s annoying, we ordered life pure performance with andoya wheels, assistance plus and design pack on 8th Aug and we’ve been and we’ve now been told production week 10 2022, when our original date was 43 2021.

Sorry to hear your news, Tom_1985. Judging by what you've been told, my build week may also slip back.

Think I'm due another update from the dealer at the end of this month, so we'll see what happens then.

Yes, it’ll be interesting to compare notes - I’ve ordered at JCB Medway.

Assuming that's DTD then?

I believe there's a quota per dealer, so that's where the DTD type disadvantages might occur, with no doubt more chance of getting an earlier build with a dealer than does lower volumes?

That’s right, I managed to secure an amazing deal, and delivery in late Spring or early Summer is perfect for me as I wouldn’t want to have a new car during the winter months with the prospect of short days and filthy gritted roads.
