    For anyone who's had a build week 46.. Has your car arrived in the UK yet?


    And also for anyone who has had build week 47.. The regular vehicle carrier ship that goes from emden to Grimsby and back continuously (Weser highway) is on route to Grimsby after loading up yesterday .. Hope my car is on there ! Due to dock tonight at 11pm in Grimsby :)

    You'll be lucky. Mine was build week 45 and is just about to arrive at the dealers. Once at the docks Audi have 14 days to load them onto the ship.

    Psyman had a week 46 build and his car had just reached Aberdeen so deliverys can vary .. I presume it all depends how many boats and how often they go to the port.. What port did yours go to Paul?

    Tyne I believe, but don't quote me on it. My dealer said that ships leave every couple of days.

    Danners (another member on here), had the same build week as me and it went to the same dealer (carlisle), but his got onto an earlier ship so he's picking his up 4 days before me. As far as I can see it's luck of the draw.

    Couldn't stand it any longer so I've e-mailed the salesman and asked if my car was built last week and when it'll be shipped...

    My build date was for 18th November and the dealer at the time of ordering quoted 18th December, 3 weeks to go. I keep returning to this forum to glean any snippet of information. I think I need help!

    Lads, as a week 45er who has 8 days to go before pickup I can tell you that the wait gets worse and worse and worse the closer you get! I don't think I'll be functioning properly come 1 day to go!

    Got this screenshot today for my week 47 build. I interpret this as just waiting for a ship. I've tracked a few ships to Grimsby this week but none to Sheerness yet.

    Looks like I'm going to lose our race! In fact I have a fixed collection date of 18th so as long as it's shipped next week I should be OK. My dealer claims he only needs two days to make the car ready so I should still be ok.

    Mine is still at port of exit and has been there since the 18th, should be in the country within the week and then up to another week to get to the dealer (Swindon), conservative estimate by dealer should mean collection in 2 weeks.:yes:

    For those of you hoping for a delivery coming via Sheerness (e.g. me!), this looks extremely hopeful:
