    That's crazy. Do you park on the road? In a big city?

    So the saga continues. Seat CS have today confirmed that my car has not made it onto the Comet Ace currently in port. This despite the car been at the port compound for the last 3 weeks.

    Neither will they guarantee it’ll be on the Pegasus Ace next week.

    So it’s time to cancel the order. Shame as when I first ordered I was so looking forward to getting the car.

    If anyone wants an ST in Nevada White with Pan roof then it’ll be in the UK within the next 5 years!!!

    For insurance, Admiral via Gocompare was £370 (It was about £430 on Compare the Market) on my ST so it is worth shopping around the different price comparison sites.

    You can buy a memory unit to fix that fairly cheaply. Alternatively, you can turn it off permanently with OBD11 as I have.

    I’m about £800, old fart, clean licence, 7 years NCB, but parked off street in City Centre. Went up about £40 from previous MB C250D AMG Line.

    An interesting development.

    Got to talk to a claims manager at Seat today who is investing my complaint. They’ve advised that according to their records the order was placed with Seat from the dealership with a handover date of 25th November. The order was placed in June.

    So Seat have not placed any build or delivery priority on my order because they had 7 months to deliver it.

    Needless to say if I’d known this weeks ago I would have requested the handover date to be brought forward.

    I’m also annoyed that DM Keith have not advised of this previously when questioned why the build was taking so long.

    Have seat always been this bad or is this a new phenomenon? My car is going to have to be something incredible for me to ever consider ordering another Seat, every step has been painful. If I could find a car in stock somewhere that I wanted then I would cancel my order tomorrow.

    I just spoke with Seat CS there...who confirmed ship left today without my car.

    My car is in compound in Barcelona also, she did say even though it's not been allocated a ship it's likely will get on the next one, which is due to leave on 16th Nov, for Grimsby.

    Sounds like we be on the same boat. There's a pun in there somewhere.

    She also advised my dealer has requested the car to arrive with them no earlier than 22nd Nov... presumably so can have a full transporter and do PDI's in one go.

    I'm going to call back on 14th or 15th to see what the script is - without reading into this too much. Seems like should be ready w/c 25th Nov.

    ...might be worth hanging in there another week or two!?

    Ps I have a Nevada White ST with pano roof on order too! Good choice!!

    Can only imagine!! Fair play for hanging in there

    Silver lining is the next ship seems to tie up with your handover of 25th...

    Just FYI, or perhaps just general information for everyone, I disabled start/stop on my GTI using Carista so it is deactivated by default when you get in the car. No help to people wanting to use start/stop of course but that feature annoyed me ever since I got the car nearly 3 years ago (I deactivated it this summer), haven't noticed any difference in actual MPG either.
