Hello from Somerset

Post by Ja5on » Mon Sep 03, 2018 4:01 pm

Hi everyone.

Placed an order for a new 1.5 TSI FR in white on Saturday - very excited.
Was told late November as an anticipated delivery date, although from reading on here I'm quite anxious if that's now somewhat unrealistic and it could be longer :(. Guess I'll have to wait and see if they can find out an approx. date.

I really don't want to be waiting 4,5,6 months - not sure my current car will last that long! :lol:

Welcome. I'm just over the border in Devon/West Somerset. Our car ordered early July and anticipating Dec. delivery. Our dealer said he should get a build week this month and I'll post this when received.
Meanwhile sit back and enjoy the wait - Think of it as delayed gratification!

*waves*

Hmmm so you're looking at a 5/6 month build time then? Is that because of all the extras you've gone for? Interestingly I enquired about the new FR Sport model that's now listed, but it wasn't on their quote system yet, so they had to find out from Seat HQ. Few days later was told that was an additional 10 weeks on top of the existing time :shock:

Welcome, and don't get your hope up. Latest I heard that all 1.4/1.5 ordered cars after wk 23 wont be produced till Q1 2019.
I'm in the same waiting game, so can't tell you how good your choice is :)

Estimated delivery was based on our dealers experience of deliveries he is receiving. There are a lot of rumours about all sorts of delays and production dates. I am trusting my dealer to keep me posted and will wait until I hear from them.

Had an update from our dealer last night that ours is "definitely" going to be built wk 38, and he's expecting it to be with us by end of October.
I guess we'll have to wait and see

That's good news. I suspect the extras may be slowing our build. Not too worried as lease on our existing car is not up until early 2019. Time will tell I guess.

I'm expecting to hear by the end of the week that my car is built, then apparently we can track it's progress.

Guess it'll then sit in a massive queue with all the others!
