Anyone who's on order stage 5b don't hold your breath.

The vehicles are being banked until WLTP certification is received. This is the update I had from live chat and my dealer yesterday after receiving the 5b SMS:-

There won't be any 2.0 petrol Tiguans made until Feb next year so I imagine changing the trim level won't make much difference other than the price.

We changed yes. We got cold feet on colour so changed that & noticed dealer had ordered us 2WD instead of 4M by accident so we also got that changed. No issues at all. Kept the same order no.

Hi my car went to 5b code in two days earlier this week and was told the same that car would not be released to shipping until paperwork catches up with order so they said would not get 5c code until this happened well early Friday morning I got code 5c and the ship Patara arrived at sheerness last night so fingers crossed, but this ship is twice the size of the highway ship's VW use so could be some time before receiving next code, hope lots of you are on this ship , at least things are moving now , been waiting nearly 7 months

Well in that case sheerness will be working very hard today as they are still unloading Patara draft is rising slowly , I've been to sheerness in my wagon driving days and there's not that much room for car storage maybe a few thousand , so maybe only 2 or 3 ship's, so they will have to work fast or cause a bottle neck in port
