Thanks for that Phil, I have advised dealer I want the VIN as soon as he gets a build date but he doesn't seem keen for me to have access to order progress, is emailing the factory and supposed to be ringing me to update. I will start ringing regularly. He feels that if he puts a delivery date of March 1st it will def be here by then and says "it's only six weeks away after all" I reminded him that's a total of 17/18 weeks and said ASAP!!

Have something to contribute?

Sorry to hijack the thread guys, does anyone have any info on how long it takes for a car to be delivered once the build date has been confirmed.
I ordered my new lease car on 21st November, a mondeo titanium x business edition with a couple of optional extras, the build date has been confirmed as wc 06/01/14.

Most people seem to get them in 3 weeks from Build date.  Mine was built on Nov 19 and was delivered to the dealer on Jan 8,   but the delivery system was shutdown for two weeks over xmas and the new year.

Thanks for the swift response mate, lease company is telling me that the car will be delivered to the dealer by 31st Han and it's usually a week after that for final delivery to the customer.
That all seems to tie in with what you have said.

If your in a hurry for it tell the dealer to turn it round ASAP.   As i had been waiting for so long my dealer had my car ready for me the day after it was delivered to them.   Cant understand why it would take week to PDI and clean a car, unless there very busy.  :-)

The only real time constraint I have is that if it's not delivered to me by 10th feb I have to wait till the end of the month due to our stupid payroll rules. I've still got my Audi A3 black edition until the mondeo arrives.

I know that feeling,  but I'm sure it will be worth the wait, those Mondeos look very nice.

I rang the lease company to see what was going on and while I was on the phone I asked if they could give me the vin number, I'm a bit nosy and want to look on etis to see the actual build spec. The nice woman said yes of course, leave it with me as I can't see it on the screen so I will contact the dealer and get it for you right away.
Well credit where it's due she did Indeed contact the dealer who said they didn't have it, so, she contacted ford.
Ford themselves have now stated that a vin has not been attached to the car yet. Therefore it hasn't even been ruddy built. Gggggrrrrrr

I have no idea why they bother giving out build and delivery dates, they should just say you will get your car in around 22 weeks, if its earlier all the better.

In inclined to agree with you mate, my biggest issue is that the lease company wants my current car back as the lease expired on 06/01/14 as they clearly have a buyer for it which is fine, but I have no idea when my new one is coming now, I was hoping for early feb as I was told it had been built.
I suppose it not exactly a problem for me when it turns up as in the interim I still have my current lease car which is a top spec Audi a3
