Do unconfirmed build dates tend to change much?

    In my experience (sample size of 1 !) I started at provisional week 4, then week 8, currently week 7. Need to call the dealer again soon to see if it has moved again, or now got a confirmed build week.

    Wow! That's going to be nip and tuck with good helpings of luck to get your new Cali registered before April 1st. Try and get your dealer to chase up for a VIN number as soon as yr Cali is built (it takes two weeks I am told) so he can try and register yr vehicle as soon as the law permits. Good luck!

    It was around 24th Nov, but dealer didn't submit to VW until very last day before price increase - 30th Nov I think

    Checked again today and I've moved from unconfirmed wk15 to wk14. If I can come in another 4-5 weeks might just get the cheaper VED.

    So ours is still unconfirmed week 15. Anyone know when the week number gets confirmed? Is it just a week or so before?
