Just spoke to my dealer regarding order placed on Oct 16th for my Velar Dynamic 180 SE. He confirmed that on December 22nd JLR told dealers that there would be a delay in delivering Velars in the first quarter 2019 due to on-going quality issues. I have no reason to doubt this information.
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 told a similar thing by the sales guy to which the sales manager then said it was most likely his best guess and not true.

Official line is still waiting on build slots...

yeah I think the slowdown is what is perplexing customers, a lack of communication can be frustrating.
