ARE SEAT GONNA PHONE ME?

Post by Fatload » Wed Aug 28, 2019 5:00 pm

Hello all i'm pretty new to this so here's the thing. I ordered ATECA 2.OTDI FR SPORT DSG in VELVET RED on 15th of may and i was told that it would take around 13 weeks. Dealer phoned me yesterday and asked would i be OK with SEAT contacting me as there is going to be a delay and he had no idea of how long the delay was and he also mentioned they may wish to compensate me with cash or accessories. i have to say this is a very strange to me what does anyone think about this and what should i ask SEAT if they do phone me. Thanks in advance for any advice or thoughts

SEAT did phone me and offered me £200 in cash or £250 to spend within the seat franchise and even more exciting is my car is just going into production and they say it will be with the dealer in 4-5 weeks and since its the last quarter its MY20

The delay is not massive, I ordered mine last week of May and am expecting it last week of September. It takes 4 to 5 weeks after production to collection so first/second week of October you will have it! Ask the dealership for two years free servicing, its a good deal :)
Ordered: Ateca Xcellence Lux 1.5 TSI DSG with Panoramic sunroof in Rhodium Grey

The second week of October which is fine as i haven't been too well and on the servicing it is a contract hire vehicle so no worries there.

Looks forward to seeing the pics. I’ve ordered Velvet Red as well but only saw it in the showroom. Doesn’t really look very metallic to me but that could have been the lack of light in the showroom. I am hoping it’s a bit more metallic once it’s in the day light,

Let me know what you think of the colour.
Ordered Xcellence Lux 2.0 TSI DSG 4drive in Velvet Red (MY20). Ordered Aug 22nd 2019 (Wk 34). Build date 27th Oct (Wk 44). Waiting for confirmation of delivery date but been told 3rd week Nov :shock:

Velvet Red is so nice and you are correct in saying you didn't think it was metallic me too until the light hits it in a certain way but it seems to come to life in the dusk or dark you will see what i mean
