It’s fascinating isn’t it! Mine was always Week 29 and last week it was in final week of production. Today it’s apparently mid-production and won’t complete until week commencing 03/08 after the holiday break.It’s hard to follow at times! You would have thought My 20 vans would complete pre holiday with My21 commencing after !

Wow.. mine went Week 20 > Week 29 > f*ck know’s when!
Thinking of sleeping in the awning in the garden this weekend, just to get some wear out of it!

Good News. My Coast which was originally assigned to week 16 has been built and is now awaiting shipment (code 38). Time to fire up Marine Traffic app and become a shipping geek!
I have a hunch you may be secretly looking forward to it's arrival :)

Thanks for that, Buying through breeze in Poole so I assume sheerness is correct port.
If you nag VW Chat every day you will find that your status changes to 39, on the ship, and then you can follow the Malacca Highway but it will only take less than 24 hours for the crossing. Anyway something to while away the time! And then 40 is arrived at UK port.

I cannot judge because it is exactly what I did :happy

Cool! Chat not working at the moment, I don’t know my order number, can they give you the info if you don’t have it?

A lot easier with an order number. Just ask your stealer.

They gave me my order number when I first went online. They asked who I was where I had ordered from must admit it's quicker once you have the o/no.

Beth on the Chat was most helpful so I now have my order number ready to spam the chat on a daily basis ! Still code 38!

I hope they’ve sorted out the DVLA registration process by the time yours is delivered. Ours has been sat at the dealers for almost 4 weeks!

I’m waiting for notification of the build week for the California Ocean 6.1 I recently ordered but having read this thread and the suggestion from the dealer I’m not holding my breath for delivery until mid December. I hope it comes sooner but I do wonder what will happen if it slips further to say January 2021. By then, unless a sensible deal is done with the EU, the U.K. will be trading on WTO terms and potentially all motor vehicle imports will be hit with a 10% tariff. Yikes that would be around £7k for my Cali !!!! Let’s hope common sense prevails and we don’t have tit for tat tariffing otherwise I could see lots of orders being cancelled.

The Mallacca Highway is just about to dock at Sheerness. Are the build week 29 Cali’s on board? I hope so!!!!

Looks like it did not make the ship on Friday, this is the latest update on mine from chat

"Your California Coast arrived at the Port Of Exit in Emden Germany on the 27th July 2020.

Order can be at the Port of Exit (Emden) from 7-10 working days. "

Mine arrived on the 28th July so we are in the same boat (or not !). Next sailing arrives back in Sheetnesstomorrow I think so let’s hope we’re on board!!

Just to help with others' time frames, found out today from VW vans chat-line, my week 16 California Ocean is in the process of being built right now. So presumably we're a few weeks away from actual collection from the dealer. Anyway, a 70 plate will be most acceptable :).

Just been in touch with VW live. My Cali is now at status 40 which means it’s in the UK ! Slow but progress!
