Hi guys ,
My build week 23 ! I have tracked my order online and it’s stage 4 of 7 I don’t know what that means ? I don’t like to keep bothering the dealer ship , could someone shed some light what I am expecting for delivery etc ?
This link shows the various stages in the VW order process ... https://www.volkswagen.co.uk/owners-and ... -order-faq
Athough they don't mention the actual stage numbers, the section headings are in the order 1-7 as follows;
Stage 1 - Processing your order: This is when VW check the order created by the dealer is valid before it is entered into the system
Stage 2 - With the factory: Order has been accepted and passed to the factory to be added to the production schedules. Provisional build week assigned based on spec etc.
Stage 3 - Build week confirmed: Spec is frozen and all parts are now scheduled into the assembly line with a confirmed build week approx 3 weeks away
Stage 4 - Build in progress: Build takes around 3 days, so first cars will come off the line around mid-week, and the rest spread over the second half of the week.
Stage 5 - In transit: There are actually 3 sub-stages, and most people only get notification of the first, Left the Factory. Cars then wait in a queue for a ship, and then shipment to UK.
Stage 6 - Arrived in the UK: Car has been unloaded and checked at port of entry and is awaiting transport to dealer
Stage 7 - Nearly there: Arrived at dealer and undergoing PDI checks and registration
As shown on your screenshot, your car is at stage 4 and build is in progress. This shouldn't take longer than 1 week,, then it will go to stage 5 when it leaves the factory and is transported to the holding area at the port of Setubal, where it will wait to be assigned to a ship.
It will usually take at least 2 and maybe up to 6 weeks from leaving the factory to you taking delivery.
