I had notification that mine had arrived in the UK last week (5thFeb), the tracker says that they aim to get them to dealer within 7 days (that should be today - 12th) ... I'm sitting here holding my breath at the moment!! If I do get the update, I'll post on here as it should be an indicator for others in a similar boat - pun intended. :) :) ;)

We had notification this morning that ours is now Step 5 In transit.

It was a nice surprise considering the build date was scheduled for 18/02.

Got notification last Thursday that mines is at stage 5a. Does anyone know how long it takes to ship to the UK and get to dealer? Dealer is in central Scotland? Anyone with experience of this? Thanks

Loading cars on to a vehicle carrier ship.

Now how do they do that ... speed and precision of driving and parking ... you don't get parking like that in the average supermarket.

It looks like chaos but they all seem to know exactly where they are going .... watch the cars in the background going all directions on the multi-level decks ... amazing.

How will they ever find my car in that lot ?

Well the Aquarius Ace has been and gone ... left Tyne last night and is due in Amsterdam late this afternoon. It will then head back to Malaga, Barcelona and be back in Setubal next Friday/Sat.

I hope there will soon be a lot of happy owners getting calls from the dealers over the coming week.

Based on the sometimes dodgy information from VW tracker and dealers, my car wasn't on that ship, and next ship, the Comet Ace, left Setubal about 1am this morning (Sat 13/4). It is due in Sheerness late Monday night, then on to Grimsby and Tyne.

Still no change of status alerts from the tracker to indicate my car might be on this one :x :(

Spoke to my dealer this morning, and he says that he doesn't think our car is on the Comet Ace which is currently heading this way as the VW system is not showing the correct status.

Hopefully it will be on the next Aquarius Ace shipment then, due in Grimsby sometime week commencing 22nd April..
