My Dealer said that for week06 pioduction the confirmation (locked) will be at the end of current week.
We see at Friday, we can not do anything else.
I do hope you are correct.The level of detail I have in the screengrab (for the timeline) is:
- Date of agreement
- Date of order (this is separate, as the shop can order a car and then customize it for a customer, as they did with me)
- Confirmation of production week (estimated until actually done)
- Production of chassis (two separate status')
- Production of car
- Production finished
This is followed by four status' for delivery to my country. Also there is obviously things like VIN, which plant it's manufactured in, etc.
Now, the issue here is that the estimate
for confirmation of production week is 24.12. Yet the latest update is marked as 29.12. So they should have either confirmed and it should show up on the update, or, they should have updated the estimated confirmation to be later. You can't estimate something to happen a week ago. It either happened or it didn't. I am assuming VW does know what they themselves did.
As the date when it was supposed to be confirmed for production was over two weeks ago and
there has been an update after that, now two separate reps have told me that it seems
that it will be delayed.
I am obviously hoping their assessment is not correct and that my car will be manufactured week 06, but that's quite a lot of information pointing the other way. I guess the one thing running for it is the fact that with maybe two exceptions, the updates have appeared in the system over the weekend on Sun-Mon night. But, the 29th was a Thursday, so an update late Thursday night (they always update during the night) would actually mean that the dealer - such as yours - would have fresh info on Friday. So it would align with the previous update.
Well, it's only two days and then we'll know, so the above is going to be irrelevant quite soon anyway. Just speculating.
