I did ....ordered August bank holiday with a delivery date of late November. It got delivered to dealer in October ....only downside was I couldn’t get it until 01.12.18 due to not being ablle to get rid of my mini until December . So i may have been lucky with my order ( although I couldn’t actually take advantage of the early delivery date ) or they over-egg the lead times just in case !!!!

Stratstone is probably the worst ever dealer, especially Mayfair, completely clueless and very negligent, stay far away from them.
Can thoroughly recommend Rockar, simply excellent service.

I’ve sent my weekly email to the dealership to chase up any progress. Mentioned that there are Forum comments for early October orders getting March/April delivery estimates and that it seems strange that my end of October hasn’t even progressed yet from the holding pool. When I spoke to stratstone last Monday they said not to worry but every comment I read about build dates and delivery dates has the opposite effect on me.

I have a feeling I’ll be looking at a used RRS instead within the next month or so when I get post-April delivery date :roll:

Have you got your order number?

Is it not worth speaking to JLR customer services? I know when I had my last Audi on order, they (Audi) were able to give me more information than the dealer.... This might not be the case with JLR however, but might be worth a try.
