5b is Emden then so you're defo getting somewhere near and surely a good chance of seeing it before crimbo.

I've learnt a lesson tonight, and probably ought to stick this in a new thread. Checked with fine tooth comb, looking for dings, bent panels, paint imperfections, interior issues etc. Just got a little bit of a hint of swirling on the bonnet, took a photo and discussed with dealer. Suggested it be wash residue and to get in touch first time I wash it if they don't shift.

Get home, see it more in artificial light under the outside LED light at home. Swirls are more plentiful and look quite deep in places. :cry: Looks pretty rough and new car feeling has now been destroyed.

So lessons are (having done more googling), don't let them sell you the Lifeshine, and secondly, just don't let them anywhere near your car with a cloth. Now moving on to the complaint stage.. is that number 8 on the progress? As I understand it, they or a detailer might be able to get them more or less invisible, but that they'll essentially just be filling them in so they are always going to be there.

I wouldn’t take a lot of notice of the order tracker, it showed my new Golf was in transit 2 weeks after I had taken delivery.

VW are just playing with us now.

This morning another text arrived, but it is a carbon copy of last Friday's text.

Your Polo has progressed to stage 6 of 7.

So it must really, really be in the UK :roll:

When was the car produced?
Mine was produced on November 22nd... Now I try to calculate when I’m going to get my ride.
(I live in Finland and the local VW dealer doesn’t offer way to track my car anyway)

Was built in Week 43 (21-27 October) and seems to be at dealer now Week 50.

Will deal with some paperwork and number plates in the next couple of days and hope to collect next Tuesday.

Code 7 really does mean “at dealer”.

Got to sit in it today. Handover planned for Thursday.

Screen stamp reads 24 October, build week 43 as planned.

There was a white one being handed over to a happy owner. Plus another white one in the showroom.
I don’t think my Man had seen a blue one before either.

(Shucks - picture attachments not playing ball for some reason - but catching up as system has changed)

I ordered on 11th October and I now have my build week confirmed as 20th January, what do you think the chances are of getting it for March 1st, slim or none :lol:

Yeah I ordered it for March 1st on a 20-plate anyway, but when I heard January 20th build week I didn't think it would get here for March 1st.

Thanks.

Mine is build week 2, (so tomorrow) and I was told it would take about 6 weeks to transport and I should be able to collect start of March, so I’d say your dealer is being pretty optimistic!
