I've been promised week 22, too, but it was moved to week 29. The production week is fixed now but can you reallly fix it 6 weeks in advance?

I don't buy it but I still hope for the best.

Otherwise I am going to choose something else because on the 14th August (7+ month later) I will be able to cancel the order and get my deposit back.

In the UK the build weeks are being advised as fixed 2 weeks in advance.

My dealer called me end Feb with a BW of 20, so didn't delay the order. Whether they hit their quota or not, I don't know but mine was one of the first orders from this dealership. Mind, they did tell me the other week that they are not allowed to order any more stock cars, only customer's orders at the moment. And yes, I have ordered quite a few extras, such as the dreaded sunroof, as well as it being an Edition. Still, if Skoda had confirmed this order by the end of February, which they have done, how can they now, 4 months later, say they've ran out? Such horrendous service.

At the end of Feb BW20 was a provisional BW. or in English, a random number generated by the order system.

There must be something on your order that is causing it to have pushed out to BW35, then again I ordered an Edition approx 6 weeks before you and ended up with BW23. They do seem to only be building so many Editions.

Log a case with Skoda Customer Services and get them to look in to it for you.

Activa said they would be contacting me 'later on today' to discuss delivery... and then didn't.

Fortunately, they shared the first name of the person who was going to call and I've found them on Activa's 'meet the team' page on their website (which also has each person's contact details... :o ) so sent them an enthusiastic chaser email which they'll get tomorrow morning...

Anticipation is killing me. Could be driving a new motor by the end of the week!
Hey same here. Should I get excited yet. It seems so long ago 3 May when I ordered.

You should absolutely be getting excited - its a great car to drive - though I suspect much of that depends on your previous cars... The Citroen C4GP set a fairly low bar for me! :lol: I waited 4 months for mine so, by that reckoning, you may get some excitement burn out ;)

My BW was 22 for about a month and then suddenly jumped out to BW 26, then back to BW23 for a week, then was locked in at BW23 at the end of BW20. It has taken 2 weeks to go through the factory, on the Thursday of BW24 it was at the final stage of production and about to leave the factory.

So I just have the wait for the train, port and transport in the UK. Dealer is hoping to handover in 2 weeks time, but I think they are being rather optimistic to say the least, I'm fully expecting it to be at least a week after that given some of the anecdotes about waits at the port and waits for transporters in the UK.

I ordered 5th Jan - Edition 2.0 TSi DSG 4x4 in Petrol Blue & Beige Leather, with a few options:
Dynamic chassis control including drive mode selection and off-road function (PF4)
Ventilated front seats (PHD)
Virtual pedal (PK9)
Heated windscreen (PKV)
Heated leather MFSW (PLD)
Adaptive cruise control (PLI)
Ambient lighting (PN3)
Park assist (PPA)
Travel assist (PWD)
Area view with rear LED lights high (PWG)
Heated washer nozzles for front windscreen (9T1)
Heated front and rear seats (4A4)
Sun visors with mirror, illuminated (5XH)
Textile floor mats (0TD)
Hi

Your BW story sounds almost identical to mine. Is yours out of the factory yet? Mine has got as far as the final stages of production too. My dealers says that there is a list of cars that will be delayed... and mine isn't on it!

Thanks

Thought I would call for an update today - it is still in the factory on Tuesday of BW25 - so much for BW23 .........

Ah well, take consolation in the fact that A: you waited for the BW 22 upgrades, and B: one suspects the growing timescale might be in part due to more thorough QC :)
