Dang! They slow but at least I have a delivery date now. Monday!

Finally!!

So that is 2 weeks from dealer receipt to customer pickup.

They insisted I lock in a date n time ASAP as they are really busy.

So oct and nov 2012 when they ran the campaign for free servicing must have been good for them.

You have the patience of a saint. I couldn't have waited that long.

We all know how you feel mate!

I had the route open all day at work.

Wait until the boat leaves Fremantle and "goes missing" for a couple of days

Thanks to the OP for this thread. Now that I have a build week, I expect I will be hanging out here more often until I get my VIN and then I will be living here for a month

As I said elsewhere, at least Freo is the first port of call!

Yes, the boat goes missing accross the Bight and pops up just near the Victorian border, mine did anyway.

My car VIN has shown up with Production Date of 16-09-2014, I can see the next ship leaving Durban is tomorrow. What are the chances it would have made its way onto that? Following ship is not until the 06-10-2014. Also for Sydney dealerships, do the cars land in Melbourne and then brought up to Sydney from there or would it be Brisbane?

My experience is that it won't make that ship in time. I may be wrong tho but have purchased a few BTO cars and its longer than that.

Cars for Sydney go to Wollongong and about 2 weeks after that you get the car.

Oh well, I guess it will be the 25th October then when it arrives and hopefully have it for a mid November delivery.
