Do you have to ask for a status update likes?
Ive not heard anything from my dealer since i placed my order 3 weeks ago...:(
I ordered a pre-ordered one that was built already and was waiting for shipment in Italy.
Was told 6 - 8 weeks. End of July is optimistic...

I rang him earlier as he didnt ring (git) , said there had been some movement but he would have to get it in the morning as the person that deals with this had gone home. Didnt ring him till 6 though and i think they normally shut at 5:30.

I'm still reckoning (and hoping) it will be this week some point.

yep I don't understand it either Janitor, but I will be pestering the dealer over the next few weeks ie a call on the 15th and one on the 22nd because even though the guy has been alright unless I ask I wont get an update.
Having said that I ordered the car on the 24th may and had resigned my self to a 12 - 14 weeks wait because if ift had arrived from mid August on ward I would have waited for the 59 plate However at this rate I will have it in week 9 or 10... Now I don't mind public transport or my bike but I cant wait to have wheels again.

I've been told my car will arrive in the UK by tuesday of next week.
Does that mean i will get the car from the dealers in 3 weeks from today? Roughly...

Nice one Diabolik - right on your ETA :thumbs:

It still amazes me why it takes three weeks from the Docks though..? Audis arrive and are transported, PDI'd and ready within a week or so :confused:
Thats bad but having to wait 3 days when they already have the vehicle is worse, what takes 3 days ? i dont get it :mad:

If it gets PDI'd at the dock too, then is the transport protection already removed..?

They need to get a registration assigned and their own checks done and signed off, so I guess that's a couple days to be fair

Are you getting your own insurance cover note sorted (you'll need to know the assigned registration number) or are you taking up the free 7 day cover..?
Its already been registered i have the registration docs here, so i dunno why its gonna take them 3 days to be honest. Ill get my own insurance cover note sorted already spoken to them just need to get the date sorted properly
