Cheers CM ......Can I just check though TMV is saying that we were allocated a build slot on 24/01/2013 but it doens't say what the build slot date is ...I'm sure I've read on other posts that the 2 dates are different ...I expect to see a build slot date of early Feb...when we get the Email from TMV.
Yes, I've been updated to one tick this morning with the estimated arrival date of the 3/5/13 as well though similarly no idea of the actual build date. Hopefully when the email finds its way to me it'll be on that. Mine's a red one ChokkaMokka!

My Build date was 6 weeks ago, so don't expect anything to happen that quickly now, step 2 keeps you hopeful, but i need mine ticked soon. I expect all dealers say its a priority order, but that only means getting it from the docks to the dealership a bit quicker if you can beleive them.

Me too - build date 1st week or March, ETA w/c 3 May.
My concern is my Part Ex now. The deal we struck was a good one but they never asked how many miles I did. The car is used for my job so by the time May comes it will in need of an MOT that month and tax at the end of it too BUT can they renage on the part ex price saying the mileage is higher than they anticipated?
My argument would be that they knew the mileage in December and age of the car so, had they wanted to do so could have worked out future mileage (as another Dealer did thus giving a much lower part-ex and the deal was over before it even begain and off I went to somewhere else)....but they didn't and we agreed a price.
The Business Manager has been "confident" I'd get the car in March
so clearly he's deluded.
Just thinking out loud really. I guess I keep my mouth shut.
If it gets later though I won't be paying out for an MOT OR tax given it will have been a significant delay on their quoted 12-16 weeks (I order 7 December)
Hey ho - let's all club together and hire a jet to bring them over!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Seems like I am at last getting somewhere. Hope it's true.
Checked Vauxhall tracker which still shows that my car has a build slot with estimated delivery of 29th march, but had an email this afternoon from my dealer saying that my car is built and is awaiting being released at the factory.
I think that I will be checking the shipping lines on a regular basis anytime soon.
My dealer called this afternoon to say that th factory had now collected all the parts and the car was ready for assembly. He said it was at Event 22 but the anticipated deligvfery date was still week beginning May 3rd.
