OK thank you, I’ll give it a try. Do you have any idea how long after getting the order number before anything appears?

On the day of ordering I got my order number. The VW tracker would not accept the number that same day but the next day it accepted it and was showing on the VW tracker stating stage 2 "with the factory" and a footnote "Your order is with the factory and is currently being scheduled for production."

Did you do PCP?

I've not done PCP before, so I'm unsure as to how long that should take to process, and/or if it delays the production of an order number.

The contract of sale is the order form. At the same time the salesman will ask you to fill in the PCP finance approval request.
As soon as your salesman submits your documents and you are approved they order. This happened a day after I signed the order form and finance approval documents.

You only need to actually sign for the actual PCP finance to start once the car comes into the garage, normally 1-7 days before you pick up. For me it was all electronic signing online by email alert.

Fair enough - I have done all that, and I have an order sheet from the dealer, but haven't heard anything since (that was last week), so I'll suspect they are delaying for the figures?

Contact your salesman. If your finance was approved it will be ordered ASAP as the garage doesn't want to wait a minute normally. However I have found many salesman give poor feedback, perhaps they don't like to hassle the customer, or perhaps once you have signed the order its legally binding, so they start thinking about their next deals.
I constantly hassled my salesman, often I would get through to another salesman at the retailer, and to be fair they were always very helpful and looked in in computer to give me as much info as they could

I have my order number but it’s useless as the website doesn’t accept it?

I have just spoken to my dealer as regards to this and he says he knows of no problems with the website but if the order number is one that has been cancelled before it was given to you it will not show for some time.
