Lead Times

Post by Diehard07 » Mon Feb 05, 2018 11:45 am

Hi All,

Just been provided with an unconfirmed build week - 22. Ordered week 1.

I know this is unconfirmed, so could be less - or more.

Anyone else ordered in January with similar dates?

Thanks
John

Hi... I originally ordered the 2.0 TDI 190ps on the 13th Jan 18 (I assume that is week 2) with expected build week 8, then changed the engine to the 2.0 TSI 180ps so I expected the build week to change as the dealer shown me orders from last year for the TSI that don't have a confirmed build week.... This morning I got an email saying my car has gone to confirmed build week 8 so will have the car for the end of March....

Feel really lucky to have got that spot especially for a TSI......


I was told by my dealer that the TDI engines are a lot quicker with regard to build allocation, hence my build week 8 only 7 weeks after order, so I am surprised yours is 22 unless it's something to do with the model grade? I have a Sel where yours is R-Line, maybe that has something to do with it?
I would stay in contact with the dealer you ordered from as it is only an estimate and will hopefully change to an earlier build date for you.

Ordered my SEL BiTDI on 14th December and it's now in the UK on its way to the dealer. Quite a bit faster than expected (I was quoted 12 - 14 weeks) but I've decided not to pick it up until 1st March to get the new plate. J

When I spoke to my dealer on order date I was surprised to hear the impact getting the new plate can have on resale/desirability factors when it comes to selling the car at a later date, wise move waiting till March...

does seem like a long lead time on a TDI R-line.

Same here. I ordered week 3 (17th Jan) and my dealer estimated a delivery date around the 20th of April. However a live chat with VW gave me a unconfirmed build week 24 (wc 4th june) - need to speak to my dealer to see if this is realistic and then decide what to do with my current car as its PCP is up at the end of march!

Ordered 150 TDI SEL on 6th December. It's just arrived at the dealer but I ordered it for 1st March so will pick it up then. The only extra is met paint.

Hi mtynan279, please let us know how you get on with the dealer - would love to know if there's a reason for such a long lead time. Thanks

I ordered my BiTDi 240 on 23/01/18 (week 4) My order still hasn’t updated from ‘with the factory’ to a ‘build week confirmed’ on the tracker, I was initially given an estimate for end of April (week 17) / early may (week 18) collection, but have a feeling it’ll be there before then

Hi Jeff, mine is still sitting at that stage too, when I visited the vw tracker website, I was able to ask the online chat and they stated week 22 (unconfirmed). You could check with them, see if your impacted, same as me, or not.
