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.
Bad news, was not my car.

Dealer just called to say they have been told that all orders will be clearing ports this week, it appears that VW have been using a second port that they do not normally use as they have overstocked the normal port with cars just in case we left with a no deal brexit, there is no room at the normal port and have delivered cars into a second port that they do not usually use and this has buggered up the logistics as they have had to get the car transporters to go to a different port to collect cars.

Why for the life of me they did not dump stock cars into the second port and use the normal port for order is beyond me, perhaps someone at VW over ordered stock.

Now there is a brexit extension all those un-ordered cars are going to sit at the port until orders come in that match that stock exactly.

So ...they overstocked the normal port, not the second port, and consequently messed up their logistics process.
I applaud your resistance to using rather “colourful language”.
Myself, yesterday had received the status 7 alert but nothing from the dealership to confirm it’s actually arrived there. We continue the wait. Hope others on the forum have better news!

Trust me my friend, i am raging inside but what can you do, it's not the dealers fault as they are getting given little to no information from VW, raging at the dealer is not the person who has caused this mess and the people how have will bury their heads and hope no one finds them, probably get a promotion within the VW group.

Latest Update: Dealership claim to have my car, going through PDI now and received various emails on payment etc. I just sorted out VW free 5 day insurance, though I have a registration/vin number it’s not on the DVLA systems yet - nor is the online car manual making a appearance. It may actually by on my drive April 18th...hopefully others are getting positive news today.

Is that the earliest you can collect from them or did you choose as my dealer reckoned that from delivery all the checks and PDI takes them around half a day tops.
