    New order...

    ...are one of my favourite bands.

    In other news, I have also pressed the button on:

    - Discovery 3.0 SDV6 HSE
    - Dynamic Pack 1
    - Carpathian Grey
    - 22" 'Style 5025' alloys
    - Black contrast roof
    = Electric sunroof
    - Adaptive headlights
    - Privacy glass
    - Capability Plus Pack
    - Adaptive Dynamics
    - Electrically deployable towbar
    - Cooler compartment
    - Surround Camera System

    It will be a 19 plate so we'll need to be patient. It will mean saying goodbye to the Disco 3 we've had for 11 years and the much newer Mini Cooper S which is an amazing machine. Big Cry

    Hi chaos theory...

    Looks like we have very similar taste, I have just ordered a very similar spec to you!

    Bring on March!

    Nothing flash as this is a true workhorse. Off road and towing daily, fully loaded in the rear every day and about 25k road miles.

    Only additions - Black roof rails and multi height tow bar.

    They quoted me 3 months delivery on August 6th same as you.
    My car was built today but I'm told I won't get it till mid January now
    Not a prob for me, just giving you heads up, mine looks like taking upwards of 5 months and I live in the UK.

    Oh!! Shocked
    Thanks for the heads up. Most of the stories I'd heard were about cars arriving early.
    How long before you found out it wasn't gonna be ready for the 3 month date?

    Hi,
    Ordered on 6th August.
    Estimated handover was 31st October on my order.
    I had an email mid October telling me car is now showing November.
    Then I got another mid November saying car now showing December.

    I went to watch it being made on Wednesday 5th December and was told 14th January even if I collect at the factory.
    I think the Christmas 2 week shutdown hasn't helped.

    I'm currently unhappy with my dealer (Inchscape Chester) they are insisting on registering the car in December and I'm saying if I have to wait until January 2019 then I don't want it registering until 2019.

    Dealer is insisting that the deal I'm getting expires at the end of December - I'm not very impressed.
    I'd be grateful for some advice from this forum? Confused

    regards
    AJ

    It strikes me that they have baked this completion and registration into their numbers for the end of the quarter. I would have thought that the decision rests with you so perhaps there is a little something they could do to sweeten the deal and help you with that decision?

    Worst comes to the worst you could call their bluff. Are they suggesting that "the deal expires so they won't sell you the car? I doubt it...

    Hi Rikster,
    Yes you're probably right.
    I'm guessing whether its registered in 2018 or 2019 will probably affect the value but I couldn't guess how much?

    It doesn't seem fair expecting me to wait until 2019 AND registering in 2018

    I think my dealer is speaking to JLR to see if they can push it through in December, I suppose that would satisfy the criteria, I'm happy with that as long as they don't rush the PDI.

    As I'm collecting it from the factory I've been told their PDI team give the vehicles the same scrutiny as those they sell to Royalty!
    I'm not sure this is true, but to my mind its more likely to get done properly at the factory than at my local dealers, in addition, if there's any issues they won't be short of parts! Rolling with laughter

    Bear in mind also that registering, in most cases, also means taxing. Both that, and the warranty clock could start ticking.

    That's it in a nutshell and I wouldn't accept this either. Seems like an unsustainable position.

    If you're collecting it from the factory, then what exactly is it doing between now and 14 January anyway?

    Hmmm,

    1 week into my order and I'm panicking now. I suspect the dealer needs it in December to reach that quarters target? You could just say you don't want it if thats the case and see what they say?

    Or ask about them putting a 4th years warranty on it?

    One quote I had had got the Year 4 warranty cost added into the total price. Firstly I was annoyed and secondly I didn't think it was doing the credibility of a new Discovery many favours.
    Plus, if you flog it after 3 years you've paid for someone else warranty.

    I think it's got something to do with a two week shutdown at the factory, they're back on 3rd January.
