Hi all excited 3 weeks ago ordered a La Prima ............ what sort of deilvery time should I expect here in uk?
There is absolutely no excuse for it. Despite using a local dealer for local people 😉, I was repeatedly told "There's nothing for you here" for almost six weeks.Latest update from my dealer yesterday, 21 April 2022:-
“Sadly the vehicle is still showing transit/docks, having spoken to vehicle supply they are having major issues with the unloading and paperwork
They cant give any dates when expected to be with us until finally loaded onto a vehicle
We currently have 26 vehicles like your one suffering with delays.”
I am disappointed with passive acceptance of this situation by the dealer. If someone was sitting on my goods worth ~£900,000 I would be chasing up the shipper, HM Customs or whoever was causing the backlog on a daily basis. I’d also be going public and naming those responsible. Or am I overreacting?
Prior to BREXIT and the pandemic, it took 5 weeks to get my Alfa Giulia from the Italian factory through Portbury and to be ready for collection from the Swindon dealer. It did however take them 5 months to build the car from date of order.We ordered an Icon (upgraded to La Prima in all respects except the paint finish) on October 11th 2021. We were given a date to expect it in January. It arrived at Portbury Dock on the 2nd of March. It was slated for a load that week but did not get to the dealer in Wincanton till April 12. It took till this Tuesday (April 19) to get it out of transport mode (!) and it was finally delivered yesterday (April 21 2022). So it took a total of over six months. This is pretty disgraceful. I ordered a Tesla Model Y in January - I had it by the end of February. But Audi is even worse. I was considering a Q4 e-tron until I was told the lead times were almost one year!
