I must stress this isn’t affecting the order only affecting delivering from uk port to the dealer just to try an make it as clear as I can.
Tom - good for you for being an actual VW dealer on here and answering questions as best you can. I know someone was upset with something on another post but you answered that well and I know covid has really messed up a lot of the normal work, so your doing great in my mind. Here comes the billion pound question??? I ordered on 5th Dec 2020 expected delivery date was yesterday. 204 4 motion SP - what would be your best bet on actually seeing it this year? Any month would be good...thanks

Tim - can i ask when you ordered with Eurovans? How are you finding their comms?
Hi Dean
I ordered 8 October. Their proactive comms are non-existent. When I I call they are cheerful but seem to know nothing. Latest today when I emailed:
“According to the VW ‘hit list’ yes, still on for an April build Tim.”
I can’t do anything except take it at face value, but I’d put a weeks wages on at 2/1 that I don’t hear from them in April...

Hi Dean
Thanks for the kind words!
I personally believe it’s good to have people on here from the dealer network to try and give customers an insight into what information the dealers have. Don’t get me wrong I’m not perfect.
But answering your question I have vehicles that I ordered in December that are on for build in may at the moment but that could still all change.

Bloody frustrating, hit list? Give me a break. So you ordered two months before me....I wont see mine anytime soon I think. I'd prefer for someone to say its not coming until December. At least my holidays and time spent booked away could be cancelled and find something else to do. Thanks though. Maybe we will both collect at the same time. Now that would be funny.

Agree. Someone centrally from VW Germany should also look at these posts. Appreciate the reply. Maybe I'll service my van at yours...

Hi Dean, did your dealer give you a "queue number" for want of a better description? Our Coast that was ordered in November was supposedly 213 in the queue and although VW chat change their mind with every enquiry, our dealer insists that our build "month" is April. We shall see!

My order was accepted by the factory exactly 6 months ago and I’m no further forward in understanding when I might see the vehicle. I was order No.53 in the queue but suspect that was badly affected by the 2 week shut and hence no update.

Either that or the contents of the sport pack and possibly the navy bellows are on back order and impacting the build - but that’s me wildly speculating out of boredom and frustration!

Whoever gave that 4 month delivery window was having a laugh. I ordered a 199/204 4Mo in mid Nov and was told at that time 10-12 month delivery. I don't expect to see it until Sept at the very earliest

Did you get that in writing? When I was looking at placing a new order end Nov/early December I was being told June as the earliest date.
says it on the purchase invoice and was in an email when I put the deposit down. Just wondering if i put all the van purchases up in the loft again now.

I went for the same. at this rate we might as well jump on the 7.0 waiting list....

Dean, my order went in August 19th, couple of email confirmations from dealer. Dealer really at arms length until early December. Most my info came from VW Chat (info ahead of dealer)

So, it seems like my 204 4Mo has made it to the dealer after a couple of weeks at Sheerness - so will find out the details tomorrow I guess. Hopeful of finally getting my hands on it early next week....
Hi Swello.
Just to help me know when l might get our 204 4Mo ordered at the end of Sept, what build week were you given ?

Hi Susi....I ordered 17Aug...and it’s currently sat at Emden the German Port of exit....I am hoping it will be shipped to Grimsby so I can have it well before the end of the month so in total just over 8 months. It has been delay after delay with no explanation. I really hope it gets through the build process soon for you, it’s so frustrating. I think my delay was extended because of problems getting the 204 engine approved but I don’t know
