Keith, I think you'll find it's week ending tomorrow so your dealer should get it sometime from Monday onwards. Let us know how you get on.

Cheers

This is why I'm a bit cross, Ford should have already had my car a week but I couldnt have had it till Sunday.

Now it looks like it will be next week.

Will just be glad when i get it :)

Called today and system says it is at boulonge port. Asked if it was likely to be delayed, he said not necessarily so as the system may still be slow at being updated. Should hopefully find out more on Monday.

According to my dealer today car is now at Halewood (Liverpool) so they'll ring Monday morning to fix delivery date which is still week ending Saturday 7 March. Business Manager said I was told to be given a call yesterday to be updated. <_< Mmm, they must think some of us were born yesterday.

My dealer said they will have my car by Friday. Does this mean I'll be able to get it Friday sometime or how long does it take to "check" the car over?

Depends. If your car comes in the morning you could be able to get it same day. PDI takes about an hour. If you're having anything like Pureguard that'll take up to 4 hours. Then there's the valet...

I know you have been waiting a long time and want the car straight away. BUt don't rush tem into getting it to you the same day. They wont (may not) carry out a thorough check and the valet wont be as good as it may have been - waiting an extra day will be worth it to get the car properly prepared.

I wont rush them, just give them a small push :)

If you saw how slow they were at anything you would want to push them a little two.

Does that mean he has the car atm but just doing all the checks or that it will be in on the 7th?

This stuff about when the car gets in etc is confusing me!!!

No, he hasn't got the car but he said his system is still showing the 7th, which is the end of the week and he wouldn't be surprised if it's delivered early as quite a few lately have been.

Mine's still showing ETA at the dealers w/e 7 March :) I'll need to find out tomorrow when it'll arrive but it's due this week coming. Ford always give a week ending date (eg 7 March, 14 March). Only when it's about to leave Halewood do you have an idea it'll be at the dealer within a 24 hour window.

Up to a week! WTF. If the dealer is only doing a PDI then it's an hour to sort out. If it comes in Friday (so long as it's not after about 3pm) you should be able to get it Saturday, surely?
