Strange as it may seem I phoned JLR customer services , got through straight away and was pleasantly surprised at how helpful they were. I enquired about my order, they had me on file but no build date etc so they logged a case number.....low and behold I got " the" call today that my build date has been allocated approx 2 hours after I phoned JLR ! However when I look at the order config form it does show that it was produced at 10am today so just a coincidence .....no conspiracy theory here !!

I had a few conversations with JLR customer services and was very impressed with them. Saved chasing the dealer who was a little poor in communication....

Good news indeed. Salesman is out of the dealership until Tuesday so will not have an answer before then. Then again response is slow so might try JLR customer services considering the positive feedback. To be fair I’m happy for the build to be delayed as lease car does not go back until May. Assuming that if stratstone stoke have some build slots the same should be said for other stratstone dealers?

Curious to see what updates 19.5 brings. On a separate note if you look to order a car on coast to coast cars or uknewcars it lists apple car play and android auto as no cost standard options but there is no mention of this in the brochure. Hopefully the Velar will come with this activated as I use the text message functionality quite a bit and Spotify. Suspect google maps may need to be used occasionally considering the nav is probably under par.

Just reading through the past couple of days messages on this topic, I’m really pleased that you all seem to be finally getting some movement on your orders ... I was lucky to get my Velar in December and everyday I still pinch myself when I get in it . I’m sure you’ve all seen the current Stratstone deal ..we really are lucky to get the deal we got. There’s no way mrs D would have given an 8 grand deposit the green light .
On a side note my MY19 didn’t come with ACP but got it fitted within a week as a software upgrade for free, I’m getting to grips with it now . Ive got ACP in my ford kuga and don’t use it as it overrides the Ford system . In the Velar you can use it solely or , like I’m doing, playing music through ACP then i can revert back to the velar home screen or nav etc. I’m liking the flexibility in flipping between the two .......
