You would hope so but so far no evidence to support this. I added a spare wheel only.

There are a few zero mile in-stock cars available for delivery according to carwow. Does anyone know if these qualify for SEAT 0% PCP Finance?

On another delivery dates thread most people who ordered late Dec/early Jan seem to have build weeks in March so that’d be 10-12 weeks - yours seems a bit of an outlier (though more recent than most).

Yes there are usually two options: cash and PCP. But when carwow state there are cars available at the particular dealer, it is not nesessary so. I tried to buy a car advertised as an available for delivery by carwow, but in reality there were no cars at the dealer. And the price was a bit higher. It makes sense to check with the dealer first.

delivery dates will vary mainly depending on engine and then model. They tend to build with a certain engine for 1-2 weeks depending on demand. I remember seeing a factory build schedule that someone had posted before Christmas, it proved very accurate.

I had been quoted 4 to 5 months for an ateca xcellence lux 1.5tsi dsg by the locals dealer (both lookers) when i was looking in november and december so put it off as it felt too much of a commitment. Phoned Sytner group in mid january as i drove past a fancy new garage in north wales, and asked if they had any orders coming through and that was the only way i would buy. They said no way but when they checked the sytner group had 5 of this exact model arriving in a week at the end of January! so even got it in the colour i wanted and they price matched drive the deal. picked it up the following monday with 2 miles on the clock.

This is after drive the deal insisted that all cars coming from the factories were already allocated and dealers did not buy in stock like this any more.

So here's what's happened to me...

Ordered an excellence Lux 1.5TSI DSG 4WD on Saturday. Paid £1000 deposit and was told 10-12 weeks. Sunday I was idly looking at the configurator (as you do) and noticed that the engine/transmission choice had reduced significantly, and the only 4WD is now the 2.0L TSI DSG.

Called the dealer who gave me some waffle about "oh, they're always changing it, don't worry". So spoke to Seat UK who confirmed that engine isn't now available with 4WD (in fact never has been, even though they printed a price list in Feb with it in). Back to dealer who said they will be building them but it'd be December. They reckon they can get me a 2.0L 4WD in a month by doing a swap with another dealer - and they've agreed to pay half the extra price.

So now we wait to see if there is one available - the build schedule posted above looks hopeful as the 2.0L DSG 4Drive is on the Q1 schedule, but we shall see. The thing is I started looking at Seat/Skoda as the way to get a decent SUV with 4WD for c£25-27k - we're now at £34k, which is Volvo XC40/Audi A3 money - however the discounts and the 0% finance means this is still a better way to go.

According to Seat UK chap the 1.5TSI engine is the problem - hence my dealer being confident they can find a 2.0DSG somewhere in the system.
