Any pictures, haven't actually seen an Acapulco Blue in the fresh and there isn't many pictures?

It looks stunning, much better than I expected actually. Unfortunately though I couldn't take a picture today - we've decided that the first rule of van club is that we can only take epic pictures of our van :). We'd worked out a suitably epic place to park up but, by the time we got there, it had started chucking down and we didn't want to get wet....

I must have missed something here I shall be looking for an Acapulco Blue roof. I thought you had the same colour - obviously not. Bamboo Green - that is the longest wait colour. You must be a saint!

I am guessing this must represent the colour profile of VW TRansporter sales - mainly white. No wonder white is the shortest lead-time!
I wish white was the shortest lead time, ordered 3rd week of September and been given unconfirmed build date of wk 17

DSG? Or other long lead-time item - some alloys, dealer allocation delays? Its a complex matter. I make that 31 weeks. Mine will be 27 at best - longest I have seen during my wait is 54 weeks! Others 41, 38, 33 etc. Regrettably its part of the experience.

@Hantshog Are you still unconfirmed build at week 16? Mine is still unconfirmed at week 4. Oh, I ordered end August but now getting rather frustrated as others seem to be shifting forwards but seemingly not mine!

Still hoping to miss the dreaded VED increase though. Need to stay positive :thumb
I contacted my dealer last Friday.unconfirmed build date week 16. Its gone back 2weeks.I think you have a month on me. I doubt I will avoid the tax change.

Since I sent my post I have been confirmed at week 4. I hope your build date can come forward as do detect some optimism on the forum what with VW shake up. Redundancies and renewed customer focus etc. Fingers crossed for you.

Oh well it's no point in worrying about it as, I don't think I'm going to avoid the new tax changes :(

Some might say that I'm one of the lucky ones, as I receive the war pension mobility supplement (same as higher rate mobility) I have a VED exception certificate, so I don't pay road tax
But I'd willingly pay all the road tax if I could have my legs back and not be in constant pain

My order for California ocean tech 204 DSG placed on 16th December 2016, no dates given yet but hope to receive her by end May 2017

I was very young and naive when I signed up, spent 13 years in Royal Engineers doing a lot of silly things, which my body keeps reminding me of

Hmmm.......we (all of us) are what we have done, what we do and what we will do. I am certain you will enjoy your Cali and that it will be a great tonic. :):thumb

Hi. Is there something unique about your build to have such a long lead time?

Nothing special. Maybe pearl white? Dsg, acc, alcantara are common I guess.

I applaud your patience. I wonder why it's taken so long. Have you been given any explanation?

No. They just said that new quotas (is this allocation?) will be known in January. Back in December they said week 11, but without having quotas for 2017 for our country yet it was just an assumption. Don't know if I make any sence . Not so good in English.
