Times have been discussed multiple times on the forum (its always advisable to do a quick search on the forum before posting in case its been answered before!)

Depending on what your dealer has quoted, I would personally say double it. There have been previous issues at factories, and some orders have been backlogged so they dont get round to them as quicly as they would like.

If you double it, then you can at least prepare yourself for any delay that may come...

No Problem, Sometimes the forums can be quiet, and you may wait anything from a few hours to a few days, and if you need an answer quickly, a tap in the search box can save you the waiting time :)

You definitely get some good deals on the old boys now, and if you get more for your money its worth considering! Just bear in mind, they will be classed as modifications, as there are no more MK2.5's rolling off the line, so any additions made for your registration and with any bits of fluff and frills, are all to be deemed as modifications on your insurance policy.

So if I buy the titanium with the dress up kit already added I will have to inform my insurance? Not looking for major mods just basics like wind deflectors, gel badges an maybe powder coat the wheels black.

If the car left the factory doors with the skirts on, its standard spec. However if you buy a titanium without, and ask the dealer to fit them for you, because it didnt leave the factory wearing them, it is deemed a modification :)

The wind deflectors wont likely add anything to your insurance, the overlays shouldnt either, but the power coats probably will... Its all down to which insurer you use. Installing LED footwell lighting, and changing the bulbs to LED's comes into the catagory of "Sport Lighting" under admiral for some reason, but other insurers wont care.

No problem fella just get the dealer to put in writing it is factory spec if the insurance argue the toss you have written proof.
