It's a car!

Post by Jim55 » Tue Dec 04, 2018 4:40 pm

Mr and Mrs Jim55 would like to announce the birth of their new car :D

Received an email from my dealer this morning to let me know that my car has completed production yesterday and should be delivered to them within the next 7-9 days. He also provided the VIN so that I could log it onto Topix and check that it is as per my order (still to count all the fingers and toes but that will give me something to do this evening).

Ordered 16th October
Final changes 21st October
Built 3rd December
Delivered 15th or 19th December (when I'm available).
On order, due December 2018: MY19.5, Kaikoura Stone, D300 R-Dynamic HSE, R-Dynamic Black Pack, 20" 10 spoke Satin Dark Grey wheels, fixed pano roof, Driver Assist pack, On/Off Road pack, Light Oyster seats and headlining.

I haven’t had any official confirmation but our new family member was due to be born last week as well, it’s an emotional time and I can’t wait to see its little face 😉

Thanks for all the replies, just 6 sleeps now ......

Pmac13 if you ask your dealer they should be able to give you the VIN once it has been built and rolled off the line. Once you have the VIN you can then log into Topix and check the config is as you ordered.
