Thread: Who collects on 1st March 14?

  1. #201
    For any one who's car is not yet in the UK, the ship African Highway has left Emden on it's way to Grimsby. It should arrive at 15:15 tomorrow (Thursday 13th).

    Wife's Q5 is available now, so we are getting it this Friday rather than wait a couple of weeks.

    I would doubt it. This week is build week 7 and even it was built on Monday it's still got to get loaded on to the train, travel to Emden, be unloaded and then loaded on the ship. But don't worry there will another ship leaving may be tomorrow or in the next few days. At busy times in the UK, like now, ships leave Emden for the UK almost every day.

    UPDATED:

    The Schelde Highway is at Emden at the moment and will be arriving in Grimsby on Friday (14th) at 17:00 with around another 750 cars!

    my car was built in build week 6 and I presume went on one of the 2 vehicle ships that docked on 10th feb as dealer confirmed its in the port at sheerness - not sure how long it will take from there especially with the garbage weather but im waiting till 1st march regardless. If yours is going to sheerness then there is a reasonable chance it may be in the dock too

    Nope ordered three weeks ago, they had one arriving the Monday after exactly to our spec (plus panoramic).
    Not bothered about the registration, wife has a private plate going on from 1st registration anyway.
    Makes as much as no difference to the potential value in three years time IMO, which is why I'm not bothered by not waiting, much rather just get it ASAP.

    Very true. I got my A1 four weeks before the number plate change as they offered me another £1k off the price if took it early (so they could hit a target). Made absolutely no difference on part ex value taking it early. If anything in my case I was better off due to the discount.

    Isn't a car registered in February 2014 still a 2014 car? The same as a March 2014 car?
    I can understand wanting a 14 plate, but if your on cherished, does it really affect anything?

    Sounds ridiculous but it's true!!! A true 14 plate will be worth more come 3 yr resale than a 2014 63 plate from Feb. even if they were both built at the same time...

    Nonsense.
    Minimal to no difference.
    Order of importance as follows (most important at top):

    Year
    Mileage
    Condition
    Colour
    Options
    Plate

    It's worth so little after three years that it's not even worth waiting 2 weeks for.
    And any minimal difference it might make can be removed by lower mileage, better condition.

    Who collects on 1st March 14?

    The evidence is in all the trade prices. Look for yourself on What Car and Parker's. Difference in value between Feb 2011. (60) and March 2011 (11) is several hundred pounds!

    When I was watching, the Sheerness runs seemed to be far less frequent.

    Yes more sailings go to Grimsby that either Sheerness or Tyne... But The Danube Highway has just left Emden heading for Sheerness. It's due in at 09:00 tomorrow (14/2) with something like 1600 cars on board.

    How am I meant to sleep now knowing my car could be on that boat ?! Thanks for the update. It may be a little optimistic but I'll find out tomorrow after a solid 6 hours of shut eye (7 if I snooze too long)

    Mine is build week 7 and got a call from the dealership this morning to say the S3 has been built and is at port waiting for a boat. I think it would be Sheerness as the dealership is on the south coast. Hope it arrives soon, can't wait.

    Haha, I like the thought of that! More like boats to Grimsby have 750 cars and you southerners boats have 1600 on them! The north south divide even in shipping. Not long now i'm sure, I'm going to ring my dealer today and see where my car is!! Hopefully its stinking of fish in Grimsby(on the outside only!).

    There is no truth in the rumour that it's only the COD versions landing in Grimsby... ;-) Well it is Friday!

    Still thinking of ideas to try to pass the time more quickly.

    Only 9 working days for me to go now.

    Bought roof bars and assembled ready
    Bought grit guards for bottom of my two car wash buckets
    Bought new sheepskin wash mitt (lucky car!)

    So what's everyone else doing to pass the time?!

    Marine shipping app now downloaded on my iPhone. I'm quite relaxed and it gets here when it gets here now (as long as it's early March lol) but this apps great fun. Currently stalking all named ships into Emden.

    I agree, I was never into forums and have no interest in ships, but this bloody S3 has changed me in ways I'd rather it hadn't!!!! We're all in it together though, which helps with the obsession!!!
