Profits? Come on, they have been losing money every year since 2008 apart from a measly €6m last year and that, apparently was an accounting fiddle!Tell said:Have to keep the mother country happy . Do they make their profits outside Spain and the profits are returned to VW in any case.
This is quite encouraging - I ordered two days before, Xcellence, with fewer bells & whistles. Time to call dealer to see if I've a build date too.Jinxy45 said:Hi, ordered 17th Jan. just got SEAT order number from dealer so rang customer services for an update. Was told it's a provisional build week 15, which is April 10-17. Seems like a looong time away.
Funny you should say that. The last couple of times I have called they have asked if I have spoken to my dealer first.Fred99 said:When I asked SEAT they said unconfirmed build date 8/17 and suggested that in future I ask my dealer, not them. Asked dealer and confirmed it was still 5/17 and that if there were any changes he would call me. I suspect SEAT may have been quoting a delivery date rather than build date.
So, hopefully it will be built next week, but I'm not holding my breath!
I will call him next week to check delivery date. Either way, at best it will be 26 weeks. According to the Spanish forums, 6 months is normal and they are all more p****d off than I am!
I don't think the options make any difference if the order is for a "new" order on the factory. As I said before, the early deliveries for cars with few options are more likely to be fulfilled from the dealers' stock ordersbenluck301 said:Hey, I ordered last week (week 4) and today I called SEAT UK and they said that my provisional build week is week 9. Mine is a simpler spec with no options, so perhaps the additional spec on your order has added to the lead time? Those extra bits will be worth the wait though!
