If I'd known about that 6 months ago I could have avoided writing my own Perl script to work them out :D
I initially used it for counting weeks until retirement but it's handy for other stuff too :D

Course I have you melon! Why do you think it says Urinal Grey in brackets in my signature? its a crap colour and a crap name hence changing Urano to Urinal! Its a colour better suited to a urinal than a car.
Go on then. I'll ask, cos nobody else seems to have done and I'm curious...
IF you think Urano grey is a "crap colour and a crap name" and "better suited to a urinal", why have you ordered one in that colour? Don't get me wrong, I don't like grey cars at all, but just wondered why?

I saw a Urano grey T-Roc on the road a few weeks back - it looks as good as other colors...
But more masculine, military vehicle like look.

Apart from the above reasons, it is £10/month cheaper if you lease the car.

Yeah, I can understand the cost thing. But, myself, I couldn't get and drive about in a car that I hated the look/colour of. I would have gone for a 'lower spec' SEL instead of R-line and got a colour I liked the look of (probably saving more monthly). Maybe just me :)

Surely someone who likes right colors like red, orange, yellow wont choose grey.

But there are people who like grey, black, blue.

Majority of the Range Rovers and Jaguars I see on the road are grey.

Well its been just over one week and no further progress after the 5a confirmation. From peoples experience it looks like on this forum it takes between 2 and 4 weeks to get to the dealer. So looking like end of July which means the car will be registered before the 14th August. Does the app show the 5b etc or does it generally go straight to 6 and arrived in the UK?

The app itself doesn't show these stages, but you should also get notifications on your phone and these show the other stages, although they are easily missed.

no sms yet so would imply its still at 5a left the factory. Can you remind me what 5b and 5c are? Should remember from the Tiguan build last year but have forgotten
