Well, even though they have it now, apparently it's going to take until Friday to valet it and put plates on it, but I'll just be glad to get it!

Last week I ordered a new Passat GTE through work's lease company.
Delivery is mid-March 2020 :unsure:

Is this wait-time about right or am I being cynical in thinking the lease company is tying it in with the next new number-plate issue?
On Mon 13 Jan the weekly update from my lease company changed to "IN TRANSIT TO UK"
The ETA at the dealer is 31 Jan but understand it will need registering and PDI

From other users' experience - how long did it take from this phase to you getting behind the wheel?
Getting excited! :p

Congrats M777KES. Hope it is worth the wait. I ordered mine earlier this week, it says on the order that it is build week 51 from 2019. What does that mean?

My dealer said it will be built the w/c 10th Feb, again not sure what that means.

How likely is the car going to be built on the "build week confirmed" week? How long does it take from that confirmed week on to "in transit"? Getting impatient now.

30JAN18 - Car has been built and left the factory (build in progress step was skipped)
