I picked up car today from Stratstone and absolutely love it. Firstly The D180 is more than adequate for anyone concerned over power - I’ve come from an E350 merc and whilst it’s certainly not as quick as that, it’s plenty fast enough, especially the low end torque and easily cruises at 70 (+VAT 😉)

Secondly, my dealer said any orders placed in November were expected in March and he did not expect it to be later than that. So hopefully a bit of hope for you all on here

Sounds about right. I’ve been given a March build date for my November order.

Congrats on the car!

Ageeed. Unless you regularly tow heavy loads or have a lead foot. 180 is fine, and cheap to run.

Yer Stoke are very laid back, sales guy ain’t Gary Trigg is it?
Andy Oames is my sales guy. Every time I chase up they are busy. Ordered 30/10 but car still in holding pool despite November orders getting March build dates already . I just hope they don’t let me down and fail for a March / April delivery date. My car goes back end of April with no option to extend and I need a car by then at latest otherwise I am reluctantly going back to the drawing board.

Surprisingly, as many of you will have read, my car was ordered in June for 29th September delivery. Was delayed. Then delayed again. And again. On the 9th of November I placed the dealer on notice - supply or I would cancel the order. 2 weeks later - build date was showing 20th December. So I cancelled the order, which the dealer accepted. On Tuesday this week (!!!!) the dealer rang me to say - uh, your car has just been delivered. Are you still interested?

The problem for them is that it's specced according to MY desires so they are concerned they'll have an issue selling it. Either way, good news for me, they have improved their previous offer, agreed to keep the amount they will offer for my traded in X4 3.0d and will also not charge for delivery... good result for me.

Unfortunately I'm currently in Istanbul so won't be able to pick it up until around the 18th ;)

Mine was delayed by two weeks, but then turned up a week earlier than the original date (if that makes sense).
