Nunp wrote:So I popped into Strastone Mayfair to check where my order was, ordered 13th Nov. Apparently they alone have 60 velar orders in their holding pool currently and expect build to be early April with a late April / early May delivery. Apparently I’m number three on their list so when more build slots are allocated I should get one of the earlier slots although the unknown is how many Velar’s are in the overall nationwide strastone holding pool. Assuming each of their dealers all have a similar number there maybe hundreds of us in a similar position. He also said the finance rate / deal would be honoured. Apparently even on the more expensive deal they were selling velars by the bucket load right up until 31st Dec which surely will affect residuals longer term? In any case I had the ask the question as opposed to the salesman being up front with this. My order form talks to Feb delivery!!!

I've emailed stratstone asking for a confirmed build date as I've heard nothing since I placed the order on 31st October and I was advised mid to end of Jan when ordering....

Congrats! And that’s not bad considering you were told June or later!

Strange, as contradicts the info given to us by both Land Rover CS and Guy Salmon Sheffield last week in that our Velar D180 R-Dynamic SE ordered on 1st Dec is due for delivery first week of March. Both also stressed there are no delays in production at this time and only delays are where dealers have exhausted their individual build quotas.
Musky3415 have you got a confirmed build date and last change date with your order? I'm still in the holding pool of doom at Bolton! Ordered 3rd week November and not heard a dickie bird other than I'm in the pool.
I was in the Bolton dealership on the 3rd and the salesman said the delivery date with with would be end of March too. For the D180 again
Got my delivery date yday - 25th March 2019. Seems like I'm getting a quick turnaround compared to others on here

Hi - Brand new to the owners club. Initially ordered in November and was told to expect delivery in June. Had an email to advise 27th March is my expected delivery date but could also be earlier. This was with Stratstone in Newcastle.

The title to this thread could never have been so wrong and misleading, mods should have taken it down a long time ago.
