New member from London!

Post by North1337 » Tue Jan 14, 2020 4:59 pm

Hello from London! New member here currently in the process of getting my new T-Roc and the wait is KILLING ME. I got the text today that the car is now in transit but weirdly enough it turns out the 'build in progress' part had been skipped entirely. Anyone else had this happen to them? Also any tips on waiting? I have no idea when its gonna arrive in the UK

Build Week Confirmed is known as Stage 3, which should be followed by Build in Progress (Stage 4), and then In Transit - Left the Factory (Stage 5).

The vast majority of people tracking their orders report going straight from Stage 3 to Stage 5, so nothing to worry about that. It is also quite common to receive the Stage 5 notification a week before the confirmed build week.

Frustratingly, you will now have to wait another 4 to 6 weeks for your car to reach the UK dealer,

Hi, what have you ordered? I've only had mine 11 days but absolutely love it. She is a 1.5tsi evo dsg r-line. Lots of fun so hopefully you wont have to wait to much longer.

Mine is in transit too, I ordered last May :shock:
I believe there is a ship on its way to Setubal, the Aquarius Ace which is due to arrive there on Thursday and leave for Sheerness on Saturday.
(Mine is going to Grimsby which should be the next stop).
There's a chance your car could be on that and you should get a stage 6 notification when your car arrives in UK sometime next week.

Welcome to the forum! All good things come to those who wait :D

Sorry, I know that doesn’t help, so a top tip to ease the waiting strain is to join in here and find out all you’ll need to know about your new car.

What model have you ordered? What colour? When did you order? See, the time is flying by :lol: .

Wow so many replies & from the OGs of the forum! Thanks guys! Lemme go through them one by one
1) Impala - What happens at stages 6 & 7 if you or anyone could answer that in more detail :D

2) Adamramp - I had to order the slightly less powered 1.0 TSI as im 21 and they aint gonna allow me to rip up the roads in a 2.0 DSG. I can't wait!

3) Troc Chick - LAST MAY!!! That's absolutely mental. Why has it taken that long? Im sure there are reasons before I go jumping to conclusions lol.

4) T Roo - Thanks for welcoming me! I got the T Roc Design, in Atlantic Blue body & Pure white roof! What do you think!
Ordered - 15/10/19
In transit - 14/01/20

It did, even a 4 month was almost unbearable - you must be champing at the bit. Post some photos when it arrives.

Who knows why it's taken so long? They seemed to be prioritising the 1.5 engine in the Summer, but like you I'm going for 1.0L
Also they decided to discontinue the interior inserts for the Orange design so that may have delayed it even more.

Stage 6 just means it's arrived in UK, and 7 is when it gets to the dealer I think.
