    Today my dealer placed my order. ST Lux MY20 with Pano roof in silver.

    Can’t wait already.

    Seat CS saying same to me, in transit and no more detail than that.
    Anyone know if all vehicles are transported on the Pegasus ace or are there alternatives vessels used?

    Do they offer collection from the factory? I guess not, but that would be a memorable journey.

    It would be awesome! Which route would you take? Across the Pyrenees? or I could be tempted to do a slight detour to Monaco up.

    Not sure, I did read an old post suggesting SEAT used 3 different ships. Not sure if that is still the case.
    I emailed CS a few minutes ago, asking for an update on my order.

    Thanks for that information. I live about 20 minutes from Grimsby, and think Pegasus Ace will dock there as well before going onto Tyne, and as the dealership is located in West Midlands, think car may be offloaded at Grimsby rather than Sheerness.Seat UK CS may confirm this to me next Monday.

    Do you know what the difference is from the MY19 to the MY20 build is? Am looking at purchasing one myself and want to know the difference.

    Not much.
    The new brochure is now online.
    But I think it’s safety pack is now included.
    And colour changes. Some added some removed.
    On cupra lux leather seats are replaced with heated alcantara buckets and I think it’s not the full winter pack now.

    Hello, from memory the MY19 build (LUX) spec comes with leather sports seats and driver only electric seat whereas MY20 has the alcantara or microsuede type seats and no electric seat for driver - may be other differences not sure without looking at MY19 spec , last week Seat UK C Sservices sent me a copy of the MY19 spec that I ordered,but as I am not savvy using blogs, may not be able to send you a pdf copy, but I will try, failing that I can email a copy to you - let me know

    So it looks like Pegasus ace takes about 21 days to do a loop, so it would next be expected into Sheerness on roughly the 2nd Aug then you have transportation from port to dealer etc.

    With the timeline given by Seat CS and my dealer the cars either are currently on Pegasus ace or they will be transited on another boat.
    The other situation which I hope isn't the case is end of July is unrealistic and it will be mid August before cars arrive at dealers.

    Hopefully you get a better idea from your email....

    I think they will arrive to the Dealers mid August given all of the various things I have seen. The Pegasus Ace did a different route to the UK this time. It usually goes somewhere else on the way back to BCN but it might not this time. I expect it back to BCN by the end of July. I know my car was only being built last week and the boat left on Tuesday it is very unlikely it was on it.

    No movement - my order is still showing status code 30. It's waiting to be transported to the port.
    No further movements yet and awaiting the order vehicle to be assigned to a ship.

    looks like mine will be the same then as production week w/c 1st July, no definitive answer yesterday other than in transit with no confirmation of allocation to a ship, and it appears that the Comet Ace is on its way to Barcelona presumably to collect vehicles produced during early July ?. As its an outright purchase, better for me to accept vehicle for new 69 registration in September, so the later it arrives to UK in August is fine for me.However, broker/dealership threw a spanner in the works yesterday to say because of RDE testing/emissions, it must be registered by 31st August - checked with Seat UK CS about this, and for an update and they said RDE testing does not apply to my vehicle .Anybody else heard about this Real World Driving Emissions ?.Seems to me dealer is just pushing for an earlier completion and payout , and as the ball is back in their court await the broker/dealer reply.

    I think you are on the mark with the comet ace, would mean vehicles arriving at dealers in the expected time scales I've been told.


    I think MY20 vehicles may have to comply but MY19 may not, so dealer may not be talking complete BS.

    I believe RDE testing only applies to diesel vehicles. Not sure if other tests are needed.
    Comet Ace seems to be due in Barcelona on 14 July at 09:05.
    That's promising for me getting the car - possibly - by end of July... or is that wishful thinking! :blink:

    Leather sports interior with electric drivers seat changed to manual buckets in artificial suede.
    Winter pack removed but heated seats remain so it loses the heated water reservoir, headlight washers and heated spray nozzles.
    Safety pack added which was part of the drivers assisyance pack. Only seatbelt warning for rear seats and tiredness monitor in this pack.

    Looks like my cupra ST lux in Mag Grey will be arriving in October. Very excited.

    Not fussed about the electric seat adjustment or heated washers. All add weight and from previous experience headlight washers empty water tanks very quickly!

    I notice the 300/4drive is rated for 750kgs towing. Anyone know anything about this?

    Just hope my current car soldiers on until then!
