Rang them up today to ask for an update after your reply. They said the last update was the 2nd of November when the status changed to “on its way”. So they have built it, but it’s now makings it’s way to the UK and then however long the dealer takes to prep it for delivery. Anyone know the normal timeframe for this bit? Thanks all.

Mine arrived in the UK 23rd October and was at the dealer 27th. I could have collected by the 30th but chose 31st. They had a lot of cars going out due to month end and a weekend in between so possibly that timeframe could have been less at the dealer.

Well at least you know now it’s definitely on its way and the big milestone of it actually being made. Time frame appears to be down to which of the three ports it turns up at.

As I think I posted advised at port of exit 26/10 but advised date at dealer would be 29/11 so a very long ship from Germany through the port and onto Worcester dealer. Plus then pdi and delivery, so early/mid December for mine turning up.

However Santa may pull some strings….

To update on my experience - Car advised as above Port of Exit, update 04/12 will be at dealer 8/12. 6 weeks from Germany if it actually turns up.

Current date given to me is early December. I'm trying not to get my hopes up, but it seems to be a lot longer than most people in this thread.
I ordered with Zenith too, I ordered it in August 2022 with a delivery for May 23. Then it became June 23, then July 23, then August 23, then September 23, then late September 23, then early October 23. I finally got it in the last week of October this year.

Thanks for the info, I was beginning to feel like I was being picked on, but it took you over a year. Yesterday I received a mail saying it would now be late January 2024. So from them saying it was built and ready to ship on the 2nd of November to Late January arrival (maybe). 3 months for a built car to make its way from Germany! WOW! I'm fairly sure I could probably have pushed it to the UK from Germany in a shorter time period.

And the latest update, even though the car was in the country early December. They have now pushed the delivery date back again to February. This is really taking the shine off things for me,

Sorry, I know this is getting very boring now. Zenith have now pushed the date back to March. Car Built start of November, in the country December. 3 months to PDI it (if I'm lucky).

That's either some serious red tape for your order or the car's had a big knock and needs a repair.

I've had over a dozen new VAG cars and they all come the same way - 1 to 3 weeks sat at Emden awaiting a ship, 1 day to hit the UK, a few days in customs clearance and 1 to 2 weeks to deliver to the dealership. PDI can be done in a day if the deslership's not busy, maybe a week's wait if it is e.g. March/Sep new plate days.
