  1. What does the dealer say when you press them for info? An order date should at least be allocated within a week or two of the order I would have thought. Even if that date was pretty far off, they should at least have one!
  2. I'd like to think early part of April for delivery, I'll even collect it if the supplying dealer is relatively close! I'm a little shocked that your order on the 14th Jan hasn't even had a build date as yet. Did you place the order through a Ford dealership?
  3. Finally got my build date. Looks like the 11th March. A (very) slim chance that I'll get it for the start of April in that case.
  4. Ah, looks like that extra output is effective as of next month based on that article. All good news though!
  5. Can I ask where you saw that info? Admittedly, I've only been waiting a couple of weeks but the lack of info I'm getting from my PCH company is whats leading me to look at other ways of obtaining said info.
  6. Easter is only a couple of days (Friday/Monday). I imagine the Xmas shutdown would've been for a week at least.
  7. That's shocking. Even fords own website details roughly a 10-12 week wait for standard spec orders. For upgraded alloys and a window tint, that shouldn't warrant that amount of extra time.
  8. Ouch! Was there an explanation to why there was such a delay?
  9. That's impressive. Take the Xmas break into account and that's an 8-9 week turnaround(ish).
  10. I'm guessing it must be in stock somewhere as a month would be too short for a factory order. Looks like 7-11 weeks are the average. Was that a factory order!? If so then that's an excellent lead time considering Xmas probably delayed things by a couple weeks.
  11. I ordered the week before you, even then the PCH company started mentioning May with late April being the absolute earliest. Admittedly, this is my first lease car and I know about the lead time before signing the proposal, I may have gone elsewhere that had stock.
  12. Hi all, I'm new to the forum but it's seems there is some really good information on here. I just wanted to see what people have been advised for lead times on their Zetec S. I ordered mine (Metallic paint, standard spec, no options) via a personal lease provider and it was confirmed as being ordered on 13th Feb. Currently being quoted a (very) rough delivery estimate of 'late April/Early May' which in my mind is a little too vague for my liking. So that's basically anywhere between 10-13 weeks for delivery. Is that right for what is more or less a generic order? Cheers.
