    Did the dealer tell you the ship its' on and you did the tracking the ship exercise? It's so painful to do that, I know...and the ship travels oh so slowly...

    He didn't tell me anything. I just call seat CS for information. Luckily the car got to uk last week and I'm picking it up on Friday. Can't wait.

    Not necessarily.

    Last year I got a call from the dealer saying my FR had arrived in the country and he would let me know when it was released for delivery, started to get very excited as you can imagine.

    He then rang me the next day to say it was in port at Sheerness but mine was to be delivered to Port of Tyne! Had to wait for it to drop off in Sheerness then sail to Port of Tyne, this took a week.

    Very frustrating.

    I tried to take my mind off it when I was told. All I know is I'll get it before end if the month. Now I'm getting it in 2 days.

    Oh.. I see...I'm guessing because I live in London (and Kent isn't too far), that was my port of call.

    Yes I guess so. Mine was going to SEAT Huddersfield. Did offer to drive to Sheerness when it was there, but they wouldn't let me ☺

    Me too, they said, that won't be possible, as we (not sure if they mean SEAT or DVLA) needs to register it, get the licence plate, insure it (1 yr free) then remove the 'transport mode' (eg...if you steal it, it tops out at only 20mph hee hee), prep the car, bla bla bla. Mine was 'delayed' 2-3 weeks because they stopped Alor Blue on Ibizas in Oct 2016, but I ordered mine in Aug, so they had to get the paint im guessing from Leon production line..

    By the way my car had 'extreme' condensation in the headlamps for a week, maybe it wasn't used to English weather coming from sunny Barcelona or perhaps it was seasick for 1 week making the journey, or crying as it was homesick :rofl:

    20 weeks after ordering, I finally received my Leon today!

    Gone from an Audi A5 Black Edition to Leon 1.4 TSI 150 5 door in monsoon grey with convenience and storage pack.

    First impressions are very good, smooth drive yet powerful, sturdy, interior doesn't feel cheap at all.

    Will try and get some pics up!

    Hill assist only works above a certain gradient, I believe it is 3%, thought mine wasn't working at first. Have also read somewhere that this figure can be altered with obdeleven.

    Mine was built week 27 and just been told it's now in a U.K. Port awaiting delivery to the dealership. I've been told that I should have it by the end of the month. Ordered mid-March (1.4 150 FR)

    Was originally quoted end of May/mid June but slipped apparently due to shortage of the alloy wheels and the 1.4 engine. What colour did you go for? I've gone with Desire Red but haven't seen one in the flesh.

    I went for Monsoon Grey. Desire Red is very nice! Saw it at my local dealer on a Leon.

    Got my FR in mystery blue from the dealers 2 hours ago. Sad to say farewell to the 2014 emocion red FR, but hey, every cloud has a silver lining! Think I might go for another spin....
