I have just seen the pic and not good. Hope it gets sorted soon mate.
Problem is Swad is full of young lads driving around like dicks, especially round the top of our road!

Finally got them to upload!!!

I love that colour! Gutted it wasn't available when i ordered mine. I love my phantom black but that Scuba Blue is lovely. I would have had it instead.

I'm looking to order mine soon, but the dealer told me to expect an October build, November delivery - looking back on the last few pages of this thread (actually, I've read the entire thing... doing my homework), however, people seemed to be getting November delivery times when ordering in May.

I get the impression my dealer is being economical with the truth to help with the sale, anyone got any ideas on actual lead times? I've not got access to any other cars between now and delivery, so I feel the difference quite badly.

6 Months roughly.

I popped into my dealers the other day for a chat and he showed me the screen and it was showing first available build week as middle of November!

What spec are you going for as this affects the times.

Thanks, I thought it might be a bit optimistic - so looking at the start of next year just before the 12 plate... that's a hell of a wait.

I can be quite flexible but probably a 2.0TDI in Ibis white (metallic paints are apparently taking longer due to the Japan earthquake). I've a few options I'd like but none are really mandatory: comfort and technology packs, interior lights and a few others that would depend on price which I'd just avoid if they would slow things down.

:(

I changed from a 140tdi to a 170tdi and it knocked it back from buildweek 34 to week 44.

You'd be lucky to get one intime for xmas tbh.

I've been umm-ing and aah-ing over lead times, but seeing as you've just ordered the spec I want (other than a couple of options), I might have to go and see the dealer.

What's the deposit on a BE? (No finance, if that makes a difference)

i've been keeping in touch with the dealer and its showing a build week of 35, so last week in August if my calcs are right, then delivery towards the end of September. Will be checking in a couple of weeks again to confirm.

Hi all,

Lost my way in this thread as of late, is there still a long wait on production?

What a great colour, Scuba blue if I read correct? Not far from Sepang blue so doesn't justify paying extra for the exclusive paint.

What's the spec?

Hi there, sepangblue looks like a real head turner. Not seen one in that colour before. Congrats!!!

I see you mentioned the 'The new Navigation Plus' can you tell me what its like? I've ordered the Tech Pack with DVD based Sat Nat, so I assume I'll get the same? Whats the functionality / screen like? thanks

Just heard form my dealer.

Build week now showing as week 13 / 2012. :banghead: 364 days since ordering. LOL

Seriously??? Why has yours taken so long? Have they not offered you a car or any compensation?

Unbelieveable. I'd be fuming and looking for some sort of explanation/resolution ASAP!

I'm expecting a call tomorrow morning. If they bull**** me then boom, order will be cancelled.

Got my eye on something else that could be on my drive within a week if they **** me about any more. Infact I'm just this minute back from checking one out ;) lol.

Mind if I ask what spec? This is putting a bit of a stop on ordering my car if it's going to take anything even resembling this long.

Orderd a 140DSG with leather, heated front seats and comfort pack on 27th March 2011. I was given a build date of wewek 34. About a month after the initial order I upgraded to a 170 DSG with leather, heated front seats and a comfort pack. The car was pushed back to week 44. This didnt bother me. But it's randomly jumped to week 13 / 2012.

Ibis white - 3 door.

The new (G-version) navigation Plus is way better than the old one!
- HQ LED Screen
- Calculate routs much much faster
- Parkingsensors is shown in the monitor (If you have Parkingssystem plus)
- Supports new SD cards up to 32GB
- Plays DVD (Movies)

Whaaat??? It plays DVDs? I thought this was locked out of all RNSEs and was just DVD for nav?

If this is true I'm buying a new RNSE straight from Germany (on the cheap from supplier) as soon as my BE arrives.

BTW - think you can activate optical parking on older models in VAG?
