I'm leasing mine through a broker, and placed my order whilst the car was already in build and ready for late Jan delivery. That's know been bumped back to late Feb.

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 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
Ordered: 4th January 2019
Delivery: 25th March 2019

Perhaps the delay is in the back log of orders that can not be allocated a slot and are sitting in the holding pool. The dealer who has been pretty straight talking all the way through is advising is advising no change to plan. Fingers crossed.

Spot on the issue is GETTING build dates and allocations, rather than an issue in the actual builds once allocated (I like to think anyway).
