Nice one! There are so many additional bits to add to get your Ocean just the way you like it, so lots of fun there as well.

Good spec. Did you order locally? I ordered a Kombi recently and delivery times seem quite a bit later than what I was advised when ordering.

Me too! What I was quoted on ordering would have had delivery between mid Oct and mid Nov, but only have a provisional build week for early November... hope I get it before Xmas (20, not 21!)

More profit for VW on more expensive GB Calis, so they prioritise?

It would appear our dealer was being very optimistic and didn't consider the impact of RDE2 or the late surge in orders in September, delivery now is unlikely to happen until March / April next year, but it will be RDE2 compliant.

You’re not the only one in this position. I think the guys on VW chat are getting bored of us asking for expected build weeks for our vans !

Nice for free! Doesn’t change your road tax but I paid £800 for the RDE2 compliance (stupidly ordered 8 Oct...just in time!)

I wasn't made aware that pricing was changing from October when I ordered, neither was I made aware of the RDE issue. Feel sorry for those that are having to swallow the cost increase which is quite unreasonable given the big increase that had already been applied to the Cali 6.1 range (although you get more standard kit for your money).

We had a delivery date of 14th Dec, but VW have said there is no build date for us as yet, indicating that we could have to wait until March/April next year because of the RDE2 impacts. No update from the dealer yet though.

Just had a phone call from our dealer Today. We ordered around similar time to yourself. He said he is expecting to see the vehicle end of Feb. That's with all the RDE2 compliance issues etc. Hope that helps.
