So my Tiguan is at the dealers and can be picked up from tomorrow but have agreed I will get it on Friday, went in today to sign the finance papers and got a chance to have a look at it but only from the outside, thought i'd post a picture anyway and an observation about the tyres. Here it is:



I noticed mine had Pirelli tyres on it and there was another SEL next to it delivered the same day, so i would assume built close together, both our Tiguans have the standard 19" alloys but the other has Hankook tyres:



Only difference i could see was that mine has TPMS fitted, there was another SEL new but not quite so new that had 19" without TPMS and had the Pirelli tyres, and a SE with 18" that had Continental. If there's a logic i can't work it out.

Timeline as may be useful to others:
Ordered: 29/10 (Dealer place order on 31/10).
Given Provisional Build Date within a week of 05/12.
Build Week confirmed for 05/12 on 14/11 (3 weeks before).
Build started (Estimated) on 05/12.
Build Finished (Estimated) on 07/12.
Left Factory on 07/12.
Arrive at Emden on 09/12.
Allocated Ship on 12/12.
Shipped on 13/12.
Arrived in UK (Sheerness) on 14/12.
Arrive at dealer (Guildford) on 19/12.
Pickup offered from 20/12 (51 days / 7 weeks 2 days).

The longest description for one of the cheaper and more mundane extras :)

Stumpy, not at all, already reading through the owners manual again, and it agreed it is a very cool colour.

Was beginning to think I was kidding myself thinking I would get it before Christmas, can't believe how quickly they turned it around.

Oh that gives me hope as mine arrived in the UK 2 days after yours so could arrive on 21st/22nd, gives me 23rd to collect as they say PDI is only a few hours for them.
However, mine is to be delivered.. so 23rd? or do they deliver on 24th? lol

I think you've got a fighting chance hmrc804, where in country are you? I'd just keep in touch with your dealer and make sure they are aware that you would like to pick it up before Christmas. Mine told me in Friday is was being delivered Monday, no ifs just was, so everything was lined up.

Must add as well as I've seen conflicting information on this but I've had my private number plate put on and it's caused no issues and hasn't taken any longer than if I hadn't, that said I had taken if off my current car a month ago so just dropped my V778 form into the dealers all signed.

I'm in birmingham, dealer in portsmouth lol not exactly down the road.
Found out today that the person that I dealt with at the dealer is on annual leave this week, but shouldn't affect it I guess.
This lady on the phone said she will find out about the delivery schedule as they should have? and let me know today, but no replies... not good.
So I'm gona call them again tomorrow..hopefully I'll get some info.

I'd ask for the contact details for the sales manager of whoever runs the sales team, assuming that's not your sales person!
