When did you order out of interest? I placed at the end June with an estimated oct 14th build week.

@Flintymutt I ordered 2 July and was estimated BW 40 which is exactly how its turned out. Can't say fairer than that from the stealers!

Error on my part. Order confirmed 4th July. Initial build week 42.

Really? I ordered the beginning of June and was told to expect a BW 40, this was before the whole rear camera shortage came to light I think

Well anywhoo, just glad it's confirmed now, if it is built beginning of oct does anyone have a rough estimate of how long it'll take to get UK-side?

Although VW say 4-6 weeks it seems to be around 3-4 on average atm reading through the threads on here, thats end of the production line to dealership.

Order tracker stopped working for anyone else.  My car has been in-build for 3 weeks, and now the tracker just says my order cannot be found.

I just know it was that one on the back of the lorry in Kent and has been smashed to pieces!

6 weeks from BW is accurate. It takes 4 weeks to deliver a built car, but right now it's taking the feckers 2 weeks past BW to start building it!
Whey ya bugger! It's finally arrived after an 8 month wait....

6 Weeks seems about right.  I have just gone on to the tracker a short while ago and it states 'Build in Progress'.  It's Sunday Morning and my actual predicted Build Week was last week, week commencing 01/09/13.  So it seems as others state in this forum, the tracker has just rolled over automatically to Build in Progress on Sunday Morning (the start of a week), as I very much doubt Volkswagen pay their staff to work at 7:35am on Sunday Morning, no matter how much behind they are. :laugh:

That pretty much confirms that the factory is still very much behind schedule.
