    Morning all,

    My lovely Emocion Red Leon FR SC 184 is getting built this week. When should I be expecting it to arrive at the dealers? I've seen 4 weeks mentioned a few times looking on the internet but thought I'd ask someone's recent experience with Seat.

    Cheers!

    Now that would be a lovely little feature to have once you'd purchased a car! Though....Now I know what VW do with that extra £3k when you order a Golf instead of a Leon lol :whistle:

    OK we'll trouser the £3k and leave the tracker alone. BMW USA allow pick up from the factory in Germany, drive to the port, watch it leave and then pick up in US. BMW UK do not. 'nuff said

    The Group Manager for my local Franchise (Snows) said 3-4 weeks for my original order - apparently the cargo ship is every 2 weeks so I guess its down to which fortnight your car's build date aligns with.

    Cheers for all the replies lads :) the general feeling I'm getting then is to expect my car probably the end of October! Swahealy I'm afraid week 39 is this week so you'll have to wait an extra week :( from the thread though, it seems there's going to be a lot of nice shiny Leon's driving around our roads by the end of October! :D

    Mine was build week 38 (w/c 16 Sep) but was brought forward to week 37 (w/c 9 Sep). It was actually made on Thursday 12th September and by the following day it was already in transit.

    My dealer told me that there are 3 cargo ships continually bringing cars to the UK and that it was an 8 day trip.

    I got a call today saying that the car is now in the UK - just waiting on an actual delivery date but the dealer said it was possible by the end of the week.


    Hope this helps.

    The dealer can see when it was made as the chassis number goes into the system as soon as it's built ;)

    I'm just glad it was built on Thursday the 12th and not Friday the 13th!

    Haha no problem swahealy! I only know that because it's written all over my calendar that my car is getting built this week lol! :D
    Nick, it looks like Seat are going to be very busy this week! I think ally of it is down to the fact Seat close they're factory in August.
    James, useful bit of information! I'll be giving my dealer a phone at the end of the week to find out what day it was built! Any excuse to go out and celebrate a birthdays.... Haha!

    When I ordered my Ibiza, my dealer gave me the name of the ship that it was on and I was able to track its progress to Kent via this website:

    If anybody's dealer gives them the name, please post it here!
