Re: No Velar production in Q1 2019... Production halted

Just a thought but if our Stratstone orders are delayed and delivered in Q2 / April onwards is there a chance they may not honour the cheap rate finance if this is increased for Q1? I’m sure the dealer said the car had to be delivered by March. Of course this would result in lots of cancelled orders so counter productive but who knows. Surely not!

If you’ve placed a deposit i’d hazard a guess that they can’t change the deal otherwise Trading Standards would a field day. The delay is there problem to solve I would say.

I was told they renegotiated terms with the finance company.

Does anyone know actually who the finance is through?

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!!!

The finance company is Blackhorse but my finance is on landrover financial services header paper, so why can't other dealers of the 3.9%?
