After a 6 month wait, we finally got our T-Roc at very short notice. Build week was week 24 (10 - 17 June) so were expecting another month or so, but the dealer contacted us on 25 June to say it was arriving the next day. Still took a week or so for valeting, PDI, and personal number plate registration, but we eventually got it - and it is very nice indeed.

My second T-Roc has arrived at the dealer !

Many who have followed this thread over the past 6 or 7 months will recall the trials and tribulations I faced with my much delayed order.

After various discussions with the sales manager at my dealership during January and February, it was agreed that they would place a duplicate order for another car identical to my original order as it was increasingly obvious that near identical cars that were ordered months after mine were being delivered while I was still waiting for a build week.

I've been tracking both orders since then through the VW app and web site and I have just received notification today that the second car has arrived at the dealer. Don't worry, I'm not buying it and it will go in to dealer stock if it hasn't already been sold :D

So my original order was placed on 22 June 2018 with an estimated delivery of Dec 2018. That car eventually arrived at the dealer on 13 May 2019 and I collected it on the 20th, a lengthy 11 months from ordering.

The duplicate order was placed around 15 Feb 2019 and it arrived at the dealer yesterday or today, a mere 5 months from order and a whopping 6 MONTHS LESS than my original order. :evil: :twisted:

And VW still insist that nothing went wrong with the progress of my initial order !

Count your blessings.

They clearly had problems, Impala. I suspect that the original problems were associated with the 'new' WLTP fuel consumption tests. Perhaps the second problem was something to do with 'batch' production, and the 1.5 DSG was at the end of the batch list? Who knows?

Ordered an rline dsg Friday and order now says with factory. Dealer said it stays there a good 2 months. He estimated I will get it around the beginning December. Does that sound about right? Seems a bit long to me. :-(

Fact is its a bit of a lottery, there is no chronological build order.
Some find theirs is built months early, some are much later than expected.

Yay, only ordered my car a week ago. Now got a confirmed build week. Just need to phone VW when they open to find out when but I guess 4 weeks from today.

So build week is confirmed today but which week is build week ?
It can’t be this week so why 4weeks from today ?
