Hi,
After a test drive at the weekend I've taken the plunge and placed an order for a Portfolio (Italian red with black interior). The dealer hasn't given me a date yet - if anyone else has placed an order in the last couple of weeks, what dates are you getting? I know that dates are only indicative (and I know there will be a long wait) but just interested to get an idea.
Lots of info already picked up from the forum which will be useful while I spend the next months finalising the spec...

Thanks for your help

Congratulations on placing your order! I placed mine a couple of weeks ago from Stratstone in Cardiff and I was told October at the latest, but it's more than likely it'll be sooner. Hopefully it'll come sooner rather than later :D

Good lord, i'm sure there is no way you would decline that! If you don't mind me asking what dealership was it? I should have gone there!!

Wow, very jealous of Saski but resigned to hearing many such stories over the coming months... Enjoy the good fortune :)

Hi bucksjag - I ordered last Friday - got a date on Tuesday of 22nd Sept. The dealer said his 3.0dS cars were being built late July/early Aug so he hoped he could bring that date in.

Ok, that's interesting - may not be as bad as I feared. Thanks for sharing!

Sted24, the dealership is Stratstone and I am a longstanding customer with Stratsone Land Rover. I would guess my order was being placed just as someone else cancelled theirs. I'm not normally lucky but am really grateful to the dealer, I wish all orders would be that quick for everyone, we all just want our cars now!

When I took the test drive about 3 weeks ago with Keith he said that they had had 50 orders since their launch day, so with mine and yours at least thats 52 and I have no idea how many slots they have. Lets hope they are pretty active and they arrive before their due date :) this is my first experience with them so I can't really comment on their past performance but they seemed very helpful at the time!

Thanks Kaspa, that's what I have been told (i.e. it is in the holding pool) but no month yet. The dealer did say I should firm up any order variations ASAP as he had just put an order update for another customer through which had pushed the build date from June to August. So I'll be nailing my spec very soon!

evening all.. first post here!

I've put a deposit down on my F-Pace on Monday 9th May and was told the similar October timeline.

I don't expect to hear again from my dealer until September time when they want me to finalise my spec.. it's going to be a long long summer

Hi jinjin
That's not very good advice you've been given. You'd be better to lock your spec in as soon as possible if you want to secure the earliest possible delivery date. And also keep on the back of your dealer.
Who is your supplier?

Hey

It was Lancaster Jag in Sevenoaks. I was told that they don't know how many build slots/allocations they will be getting and once that is confirmed they will get back in touch so I can lock in my order into the system.

I've ordered after the demo cars hit the showrooms (probably like many others) and they don't seem to commit to dates.

So after popping up to the dealership to show my girlfriend the car, the dealer popped over and said that rather than a delivery date of 29/10, it will be built on the 01/07 and the estimated handover date will be 03/08 :D however, as it is that close to September i'm choosing to put of delivery for the 66 plate. The only snag will be that we're off to Florida for 2 weeks in Sept so I don't know whether i'll be able to wait until late September to collect or before we go away, oh the decisions :lol:

Just as a follow up, I just got a call from my dealer advising me that the holding pool has been extended. Said that jag are moving to 7 days a week production for the f-pace and they were looking for confirmed builds to allocate for delivery late Sept. Not holding my breath until I see it in writing though. Does mean I need to finalise my spec tonight and let him know asap
