    So I've just received my confirmation that i've now got an unconfirmed build slot for week 39, meaning delivery 3-4 weeks later at the earliest - could be later i guess. It was originally a 10-12 week lead time from 1st week of July but now it won't be delivered until end of October...

    1st world problems I know, but i'm more interested if anyone else who has snapped up the crazy 290 deals has been given any kind of build slot confirmations as of yet that are earlier.

    Bloody hell! There's no way I'd be able to wait that long for one.

    Also been given a week 39 slot. I'll happily wait longer. March would actually be ideal for me.

    Just paid deposit and the guy said they were estimating 11-14 weeks at the moment but he would confirm in the next few days.

    Waiting to hear news of mine also. Don't forget that the Factory is closed down in August.
    I am thinking on 5-6 weeks after manufacture is the earliest for delivery - 3-4 weeks travel from factory to UK, a week for distribution to dealers and a week for dealer to get it ready.

    Hoping factory not shut as I've got a build date of next week according to my dealership! If it's closed whole of August I won't be getting mines till October either

    I ordered mines last week though was very lucky to get one of a cancelled order that was already queued for building! Couldn't believe my luck :)

    Not in Spain, or Italy.... missed the deadline for ordering parts from an Italian supplier at the end of July, realistically I won't see those parts now till mid September.... if I'm lucky...
    P.s got ours in two weeks from date of order as there was one at port , happy days

    I ordered 7.7.16 and have been told week 39, everyone who has ordered one lately I know have been given the same week.

    Might be the right hand drive week :)

    Is that a 290 or 290 Black? I ordered on 17.7.16 and they were no longer able to order a factory build 290, just the 290 Black ?

    Hoping to get an update on mine later today.

    I've ordered a 290 Black, got a cancelled order so it is apparently going into production this week? What week would 39 be?

    I've been assured mines is this week due to cancelled order but I've steadily lost confidence in the dealership as was initially told one was on a boat I could have, then that was gone, then there was one that was already built just waiting on boat, then that changed to its not been built yet!

    I wonder how many 290’s will be on ours roads from October? There might be quite a few, but they’d have to build a shed load more for it to be in Golf R territory though – I swear every other car is a Golf R nowadays!
    I’ve looked on ‘how many left’ and can’t see any 290’s on the long list of Leons, apart from one that shows up as ‘leon cupra tsi s-a’ with only 14 sold – I assume this the DSG though.
    Would SEAT would do what Renault did with the Renault Sport range and release the figures of what colours and which options sold?

    How many left is a website that shows how many of different cars and models are taxed or SORNd on British roads :)

    Doubt they will be up on their yet usually takes a year or two for it to update to new models :(

    I reckon there will be a few but still fewer than Golf GTI even, so few people look to Seat for a performance car, sadly overlooked! But with fantastic deals and PCH I reckon it'll be the best selling model of Cupra yet but will still be well below Golf sales

    Take the figures on Howmanyleft with a pinch of salt. I was on another forum where a guy who worked for the DVLA checked the number of certain models on their system against what people were reporting from Howmanyleft and the figures were well off.
