    Build week 3. Estimated delivery week 5/6

    Not heard a thing, I’ve no order number on my order form either. Just EM0 which signifies nothing

    I rang up my dealership and they were able to check the status on their system, they also had an identical car to mine in the compound which they let me have a look at! Give your dealership a ring and they may be able to give you some more info. I'd say your car is probably in the UK by now waiting to arrive at dealership

    Yeah that’ll be my best bet! I did try emailing them but that doesn’t seem very reliable at the minute.

    Well I just got a response from my dealer via voicemail and email... my car has only just been built today, so It should arrive in the UK within 3 weeks. However they’ve suggested waiting till 1st March to pick it up due to the new 19 plates.
    So my question is, what benefits would this give me, having it on a 19 plate?
    (I’ve a private plate I’m going to put on it anyway...)

    Big reason - Resale. Even though you have a personal plate, it'll still be a "19" plate at selling time not a "68"
    Small reason, save a month of VED.

    That seems good price to have rear diffuser fitted don't forget you will have to tell insurance company. Do you know how it fits? I wonder if could do easily yourself

    I’m not sure whether it clips on or is screwed on? I was told that they would remove the bumper to fit it. You can buy the diffuser for £122.63 from parts if you want to fit it your self. I just thought for the sake off an extra £118 for them to fit it on a new car it was worth it as if they break anything it’s down to them to fix it.

    Hi Dan,

    I may drop you a line in March when I start getting quotes as I have been in a company car for years or just been a named driver so don’t have any no claims discount.

    Anyone know how the rear diffuser comes off/on? is it easily interchangeable between the FR and non-FR diffuser? I am looking to fit FR diffuser to my xcellence lux

    Just ordered an FR Sport 115 Nevada White
    Same colour as my current 66 plate 1.2 Connect.

    Been given an estimation of April 30th, going to be a killer wait to get my hands on it :(

    Hope Brexit doesn't get in the way too.

    The waiting is awful! Especially when there are people on here getting their cars :happy:

    Nevada White looks great on the Ibiza. TBH the only colour on it that I don't like is the Mystic Magenta!

    It's worth waiting a little longer for the 19 plates that come out in less than 5 weeks. My car is expected to be ready before then, but I've told my dealer I won't be collecting the car until March so that a 19 plate can be registered on it.

    Oh definitely. If by some miracle my car became available in February I'd wait those couple of weeks until March too. But as my car is currently due to be built at the very end of February, I think it's safe to say it'll be on a 19 plate!

    My car isn't due until after the 19 plate so all good :)

    I've loved my current Nevada White so didn't need much thought into what colour I wanted on the new one

    Those wheels on the FR sport should look awesome against white

    Might well have a Mk6 when I move here to Tenerife. They start at just 8990 Euro brand new (alloys and AC included).

    Have you been given a build week and expected delivery time yet? I have been told my car is due to be built week 8 with an expected delivery middle of March so should have my car in 6-7 weeks.

    Excellent thanks, didn't want black gloss. Finger print and scratch magnet

    Think I've definitely give for the right trim then

    Wasn't interested in the push start feature, far too easy to steal

    The fr sport trim is the best looking version but didn’t have the kit I wanted so I’ve arranged for the fr’s fake exhausts to be fitted. What colour did you go for?
