I'm also waiting for a delivery date. My build week was week 15 (last week) so waiting to hear from the dealer when I can expect to pick up. I'm thinking somewhere around the 20th but I understand the dealer will need to prep the car which car take a few days? I will report back when I hear anything.
It very much depends on availability of transport from the factory to the port and then the ship across to the UK. I waited about a week so was quite lucky but 2 weeks is quite common, then it depends on which port in the UK the ship is sailing to.
Contacted my dealer today and found out my car is at port in Emden awaiting shipment. I understand shipping takes approx two days so I hoping my car might arrive at Grimsby early next week? Dealer is Huddersfield which is 1 hour from port. Got my fingers crossed for next weekend although I expect it will be the following week.
Spoke to the dealer again on Wednesday, he believes the car will be arriving with them on Monday (tomorrow). I'd expect to be picking it up on Thursday at the latest after all the checks and reg documents have been done. How about you, did the dealer suggest any dates your car might be available from? Btw, my car arrived in Grimsby on Wedneday also but I understand they have a backlog hence the dealer not expecting to see it until tomorrow.
The salesman told me that all Q5s go to Sheerness - not sure if this is true.
He told me that it was still expected for delivery to me, early May, but if it was ready before the end of April it would be a bonus.
He said he would let me know when it arrives at the dealer.
I'll be ringing them up Monday morning for an update.
Mine is now expected to be ready to pick up between Thursday and Tuesday of next week. These last couple of weeks have been the worst as I know the car has been built its just waiting for the slow logistics to come through!
