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).
Lets just go with that for now :)

Once you get a build date it's pretty accurate from what I've read.

Yer it’s definitely a Stratstone build allocation / pool issue due to overselling with the low interest rate.

I’m waiting though, be bonkers not too.

ok so I had my car delivered this weekend. The handover guy at LR said the reason why there are no build slots for the D180s is because they cant make the 2.0 diesel engines fast enough to cope with the recent demand. They also have to build the other types of the engine variants and they cant just put them to one side and also given the recent staff cuts and reduced days have led to these major delays.

That's what I was thinking I've ordered the D180, heard nothing and ordered end of October.. I can keep my BMW (which is family car) till march and luckily have another car so will wait as long as it takes.. BMW are keep asking me to buy an X6 but we have an X4 so fancy something different.

Hold your nerves everyone . I was lucky I jumped on this deal in august and got my car on the 1st December . Trust me its worth the wait. I know you don’t get much feedback from Stratstone dealers ( clearly a company policy) but the car will come . I’ve only done 500 miles so far and most of that is a ridiculously small daily commute, but I’ve done a couple of motorway trips and its a really nice engine, nothing special but more than adequate for me. I don’t live too far from the engine plant in Staffordshire so if needs be i’ll nip down and give them a kick up the arse and get some more D180 engines built 🤔🤔

I couldn't agree more. I picked mine up this afternoon and in the relatively short journey back, I was very impressed with the D180 engine. A surprising amount of low end torque. I was a little concerned having come from an Audi TTS :lol:

The car is well worth the wait - a fabulous drive and place to be. It's just frustrating with the lack of update from dealers and JLR.
