I am only going on my personal experience two weeks ago with my uk VW dealer and the Port of Tyne. They told me on the Wednesday that the car would arrive with them lateen on the Thursday. It was delivered at 4:15pm and they called me shortly thereafter.

Hi All

I have heard from the dealer, the cars arrived today ready for collection on Thursday. Neither the dealer let me know they were coming, the app and web page still say they are at the port.

It seems to be the case that a little knowledge is worse than none at all. Having spoken directly to VW they gave the impression cars take longer to arrive than the 7 working days intimated on the tracker.

The plus side is they do turn up, just unexpectedly!

My dealer has emailed the transporter company and asked them to mark the car as urgent due to the problems I've had with Listers and they're trying there best to rectify the issues

How long have you been waiting for the car to leave the UK docks?

I’m still waiting but I think about 2 weeks. I believe the car is still at the docks though. My purchase route was slightly different but I placed the order for the vehicle around mid March but only recently got the order number

Just been out and whilst driving close to my dealer I saw a transporter with a white r line 230 heading there way so I have all my fingers crossed its my car.

I thought I'd enjoy the tracker thing on my phone, but if anything it's becoming quite obsessive for me. I check it at least once a day.

It would be better (for me) if they just said: your car will be with us on 20th July ready for collection and left it there. Then if it did arrive early they call you. The whole 'will they won't they' is actually more stressful!
