    My car is born next week!!!!

    Just called the dealer - held off as long as I could. My build completion date is 17th Jan, then about 2 weeks to get to the dealer.

    So pickup Mar 1 it is, just confirmed. (Those 2 weeks with the car sat at the dealer will be hell, but UK boarders will understand, plus Mar 1 is my birthday, so they best have balloons & cake for me )

    They've been getting some cars in very early - a suposed Feb build car arrived last week!

    Re: My car is born next week!!!!

    Mine should be built tomorrow!!! In the country early Feb...
    I'll be waiting until the 1st as well though, hopefully I'll be able to pick the car up then, I'm guessing the 1st will be really busy cos of the new reg

    Getting excited now!!!!

    Well mine is Feb build, but Chapelgate aka Porsche Centre Bournemouth have told me that they won't be able to give me an ETA until "the build month". - even though I wanted to change the spec a month ago and couldn't as the car was "scheduled for production". The main advantage being I might not have to be seen in the same showroom as Rich C at delivery time

    Hmmm - you can go right off some people

    Also I will have to warn the dealership to keep an eye out for Dr P otherwise it'll have no wheels on it when I go to collect it.....

    Re: My car is born next week!!!!

    I just got off the phone with your dealer, and he announces that the car is ready, but can't be delivered with wheels. At all. In fact, you'll probably have to buy some new 18" somewhere, cuz he tells me they have been misplaced.
    Yeah, it's really sad...but you'll get over it.

    By the way, I'd love to come over and see your new cars...and you can take a look at my new rims too. Wouldnt that be sweet?

    If the car is finished on 17th, at the dealer on 31st (2 weeks later) How come you have to wait 2 weeks for what seems to me to be four weeks until march 1st???

    I have a similar dilemma...mine arrives beginning to mid-Feb I can wait two weeks but not 4!!! Is getting a 54 plate that bad????

    That'll be my maths....

    54's not bad at all, but despite buying this car with my heart got to have my head get a look in - and Pounds500-1000 come sell up time is worth those 3-4 weeks. Plus I'm travelling a bit on business between the two and the 1st is my b'day....
