As if by magic (or VW are tapping my Internet feed), I got my 5C notification this morning. The car should be in Grimsby by teatime.

I'll wave to it as it drives by  :cool:

Much further than that...

Got the 2 Polo GTIs from Listers Nuneaton (they marginally beat the DTD price for me). Rang Nuneaton and got patched through to Listers Evesham (far south west of the midlands). Did the deal (about £450 less than DTD) and realised I have an extra 50 miles to travel (Nuneaton 190 miles away, Evesham 240 miles). The Polo's got delivered on a flatbed, but they stopped that, presumably they got stung a few times on distance selling regs (in the Polo contracts of sale, I could've legitimately driven the car for 13 days and decided I didn't want it on day q4 with no penalty). Doesn't apply if you collect, so now they make you collect.

Official range is 263 miles on a full charge. If they give me it with 100%, realistic range is 240 miles in moderately warm weather, so could be dicey to go all the way - will probably stop in Billingham to top up.

Hopefully the only one I will do away from home for a while. There's a set at the industrial park I work at, which is about half a mile from the charging points I'd picked on the A19, 30 miles from home. I'll see that they're working and how much they are to charge (used to be free, nabbed still are).

Very true! I was wondering if that would effectively mean there’s only a 3 month window? Or it’s if you order in 2021. Dealer wasn’t sure tbh.

Sometimes those build weeks shuffle forward as time goes on. If that's fully locked in for BW44, then it would seem to me that they won't build any much before then.
