Arrrgh!!!!!! The delivery date for my car keeps going backwards :mad:

I ordered my 5dr Elite 2.0 CDTI S/S on Motability with the local dealer on 09/08, for the purposes of anonymity I won't name them but the initials are AC ;)

Thanks to a **** up by the dealer the car wasn't ordered by their head office until 05/09 and the dealer gave me a delivery date of 29/10, not that I believed the dealer on delivery dates as I knew that car would be a factory build due to the options (front and rear parking sensors and DAB, now DMR).

Following my SONO online I've watched the estimated delivery date go back from 02/11 to 09/11 to 23/11, I queried this with Vx customer care and got the reply back that the estimated date is now 03/12!! At this rate I'll be lucky to get the car before Xmas.....

Presuming the car gets delivered on 03/12 this would be a wait time of 16 weeks.

Rant over :)

If you have a car to drive around in now then you have nothing to complain about, in my humble opinion,

Oof, that's not good barfly :|



I haven't ordered new, but even the week I'm having to wait between impulsively diving in for a used model last Friday and collection (hopefully) at the end of this week is absolutely killing me! :lol:

God I'm properly rubbish at waiting...

When I ordered mine it took exactly 7 weeks from point of ordering to collection. However I ordered mine very early on and think the hatch was then being produced at Ellesmere Port so that could of been why it was so quick.

Mmm thought they'd moved the MY13 back to Ellesmere Port and the GTC to Poland :sus:

Still have got 2 pair Philips Extreme Vision ready to go straight in, not decided about the DRL's yet but probably will get the Polarg's

Being totally lazy here - are they widely regarded as 'the best' white bulbs to have..? There are so many variants - I wondered if there was one which was the most highly rated amongst owners..?

Before I went to aftermarket HID I used to use the previous version on me old mondeo lump and they gave good illumination. Osram Nightbreakers are also good.

When I ordered my 5 door that was ordered Start of January and it was ready at the dealers by the 22nd Feb Collected it on the 1st of March this was back in 2010 and it was made in Elsmereport.

My dad got his Elite again this was built in Elsemereport and it was ready around 8 weeks later. However I ordered a GTC VXR back in June originally due last week. Online tracker shows end of November at the minute but been told to take what the tracking site says with a pinch of salt as it's still beta at the minute.
