    Jesus christ, June?! If next week comes and goes without said car. I will not be responsible for my actions but seriously, I know scroog said something about there being a backlog from the snow at the START of march and the Easter shut down, but your car has been at the port for 3 weeks and if you never enquired about it, you were going to get it in June?!

    4 weeks impressive. I done the same thing in February but was told all Leon's are currently 12 weeks plus another 8 for a cupra. There was also a delay on 1.4 engines and a certain type of alloys. If mine takes 20 weeks as expected I'll be happy with that I suppose. Will be worth the wait though.

    Same as mine. Arrived at Sheffield yesterday and got my full video of the car. Matt @ Sheffield has been great to deal with and updates since car arrived.

    They have agreeded not to touch it as going to deatailers for machine polish and protection.
    Gutted I cannot pickup until near end of month but that's down to me not being available.

    Thanks! That was an option, but only under the 'fleet car options' list. Dealer put it on order and it came with them, happy days!

    Well it's been 15 weeks to the day that we ordered our leon ST FR 150 in mystery blue, no other options added to the car, I Phoned the dealers yesterday, its still at the port (apparently) and now I really don't have a scooby doo whether its still at the port in Barcelona or Tynemouth...., its actually driving me nuts, And since the start of this not once has the dealer updated/phoned or emailed, all contact has been from me. Here's how some of the phone call went....

    I phoned once yesterday to speak to our dealer (only got the receptionist) he was "on holiday" then I asked for the manager to call me back, but the same receptionist phoned me back an hour later...

    Receptionist: its a brand new car
    Me: yeah i know, I've ordered new cars before....
    Receptionist: its still at the port
    Receptionist: do you know the registration.

    What chance have you got?!

    There are good and bad dealers, looks like you've been unlucky with yours.
    If you can get the 8 digit order number from your dealer (there's no reason they shouldn't give you that, otherwise tell them you'll make a complaint via Seat UK).
    Then ring Seat UK Customer service with the number and ask them to confirm the status of your car and when it's likely to be with the dealer.
    Worth a shot...
