I know what you're going through mate. Mine was ordered in May and finally arrived at the Dealership today. With a bit of luck I'll be collecting it on Friday, only a 29 week lead time.

Presume you are talking Sportline Kombi, right? I've been offered Panel Vans pretty much from stock at three different dealers

ah ha! the ones I was offered were all SWB Panel Vans mate. Yours will take so long 'cos it's slightly different

I'm guessing that all the initial built vans were SWB Panel Vans, then Customer Orders followed - meaning loads of Kombi's have taken an age to arrive. Not so sure about LWB vehicles though, guess comes under same category as Kombi

the delivery dates are radiculas? and nobody seems to know any information on the progress? i chased the dealers they were chasing vw etc etc etc, never got a delivery date confirmed until a friend picked his van up from a service and told me there was a lwb sportline kombi at the dealership (mine) on the friday the dealer didnt call me until monday afternoon :confused::confused:

i waited in all 33 weeks LOL:LOL: worth the wait but feels like a life time?

I'd say that's pretty good mate. The important thing is if the build week is "confirmed" or not. Eventually I got told Wk 40 confirmed build wk and mine is being PDI'd this week for me to collect this coming Friday. So you could be looking at mid Feb for yours - just in time for you to start worrying about the new plate change! LOL:

Thanks for that stan something else for me to worry about and maybe a extra delay waiting for the new reg :confused:Make sure you post some pictures when you get your van so it gives something to look forward to and make the wait worth while

This is one of the reasons I didn't end up getting a new one when I was lookig a few months ago.

It's suprising VW haven't addressed the situation. It's not difficult to get another team doing the aportline conversion of to lean on the company doing it and asking them to take more!

I'm not - let's face it, a good way to keep the prices high & retain that "exclusivity".

Nothing like an artificial shortage, the cynic in me says.
