I’ve just had an unprovoked email from autoebid (who I must say have been pretty good with communication) and we are now status 40 arrived in UK port. Very exciting and a much shorter time at Emden than anticipated. They expect we should take delivery in about 2 weeks!
Congrats!!! How long was your van at Emden? Mines been there 16 days so far, longest 16days of the process yet! Lol!

I contacted VW chat 27/9 to be told it was at Emden and would be 15-20 days there so a pretty sharp turnaround really. Have you been on the chat recently? Might be worth a punt if not…fingers crossed for you!

Yeah I’ve tried - they’ve spent two days telling me their systems are down and to try again later and now today they’re saying I should contact my van centre as they don’t have accurate info? The van centre doesn’t think it made the last boat so now waiting again to see if it makes the next one which will be the 4th Emden to Sheerness boat that’s been there since it was released to shipping. I was told 15-20 too and in fairness, it’s day 16 and after the last 9 months I didn’t expect anything better! Lol!

Oooh I take it all back! I’ve just been told my van is in the country!
I managed to get my VIN number via the VW van chat using my order number. It shows my Cali information but will not show location as I need to connect as primary user which I need to setup in the Van itself. With 2 keys !
been told my Cali is in Germany port awaiting a vessel .

My dealer thought mine was still in Germany until today when it turns out it got here this week! I think the System went down so some stuff is not up to date so you never know

Nope it didn’t, chat did confirm it was a MY22 and the app connect allows for lock/unlock which was disabled on MY21 but I’m not 100% which it is.

I’m now looking into getting the parts from south Africa as they have RHD with wireless charging point, just waiting to hear back from VW SA hopefully they are better than VW UK

Hi
Did you get the RHD wireless charging point?

Well no, not the longest wait. My 8 October 2020 order is still “in build”...
But congratulations on your new arrival!

Such a long time to wait, I think a year is allot anymore & it’s madness
