Ibiza FR 115. I was told it was build this time last week but got an email today saying it hasn’t left Barcelona

The last ship to leave Barcelona was on 4th August, so if your car wasn't on that one (which seems likely given what you have been told) then it won't leave until the next one on 3rd September.

For 11 months of the year there is pretty-much a ship every week, but due to the August shut-down where very little is built there are none in August.

Really that’s worrying I’m pretty impatient because I’m without a car at the minute. The old car got written off 2 weeks ago.. Having to get a lift to work and depend on the Mrs is driving me mad

Yes, really. Ships don't sail until they're full.

Mine was allegedly built on 2nd or 3rd of August, so I'm guessing the likelihood of my car being on the ship by the 4th is pretty slim...

Does anybody know if northern ireland orders get shipped to england and then ferried across or do they go to Dublin. I assume it goes to england so might take a week longer than most.

I’ve just received an update from my lease company that they have been informed that the estimated build week for my ST 4drive (ordered Feb 28) is currently between weeks 45, the second week of November and week 51, mid December. Allowing for delivery, I probably won’t get the car until January at the earliest, possibly early February.

Roughly 50 weeks from order to delivery... better be a sensational car....

What, that is mental! How long were you quoted? I'm worried now about my car ordered in April, due to arrive September.... I sold my current car last month and am able to use my partners for a few months max. I can't borrow it for longer as I do more miles than what he's allowed via his PCP!

If you’ve ordered a 5door you’ll probably be fine as there are starting to get build dates, but if you’ve ordered an ST... you’re probably in it for the long haul...

I ordered on 28 Feb, and currently I’ll be happy if I get it before Christmas! But I’m not even holding my breath for that.. I was originally quoted for delivery late August, but asked for mid September...

All N.I orders land in the UK at Grimsby, before being moved by road to wherever ferries to Belfast big enough to take car transporters leave from. I'm assuming this is Liverpool, as if it was Stranraer they would bring them in at Tyne.

Oh gosh, that's such a long wait. I'm waiting on an Ibiza FR DSG, last I heard I didn't have a build date, however despite that my dealer said they were unable to make any adjustments on the system (I wanted to add ACC).

That's correct. Ordering has closed on MY18 Ibiza, so even though the build week has not confirmed the specification has. MY19 ordering has now opened, but because ACC is no longer available they can't even cancel your existing order and submit a new one for the new specification.

23rd October.

No idea why your dealership are unsure, the date was confirmed over two weeks ago.

Scrogg, do you normally receive pdf versions of the brochures before they go public, if so could you post a pdfcopy on here of the my19 leon? Any ideas on when that should be released?

I’m told my car was delivered on the 18th to Grimsby. Does anyone know how long it will be until I get my car? What’s the process? Very impatient
