    Mk8 ST-Line X 140 early impressions

    I was going to ask the same question - Even though it says it, I tried and it doesn't work. To be honest, it's not a problem, as I always shave Apple CarPlay on, so I couldn't use it when i'm using that anyway.

    Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    After a 4 month wait, It's finally here! :) Just drove it around for a bit and it's so much nice to drive that my last ST-Line. Loads of tech - Especially like the panoramic roof and the B&O Sound System sounds amazing. I'd say it was worth the wait.

    Just had a call from the dealership - My ST-Line X will be put on a flatbed truck driven up to the Midlands to me this Thursday - Excited! :D

    Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    Had a call from the dealership. It’s in the country at their compound :) He’s going to get it tomorrow and do the pre handover check and then it will be trailered up to me. He did mention something about due to the ‘Reg Date’ I may have to wait a week before he can hand it over to me not sure what that means. Though on my Ford Finance paperwork I got last week. It did have a future Reg Date of 15/3/18?

    Really? Surprising. It’s a really nice colour. So glad I got mine before it was discontinued.

    Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    Thanks. That’s a shame. I’ll stuck with the ones that come with the car.

    Yeah... I think I’ll see if Ford will for the aftermarket LED when mine finally eventually arrives. Yeah, doesn’t seem to be anything to replace. Just glad I got mine I’m blue before it went.

    Just had a look at the Ford Configuration site. The new Active is now there and you can now select the Full LED Headlights - Gutted they came out after mine had been built. On another note, they seem to have removed the Deep Impact Blue colour for ST-Line X’s. Glad I managed order mine in that before the removed it.

    Went with Andover Ford. I went for the ST Line X 3 Door 1.5 TDCi in Deep Impact Blue. Had most the the optional extras other than the CD Player and Door Edge Protectors. The guy I’ve been dealing with knocked nearly £3500 off it. They’ve been great too. Would definitely recommend them.

    New Car Reg chosen... Dealership just called to say it's on it way to them and they should now have it by W/E 17/3. The guy and the dealership may be more excited than me as he say's it may be the first ST-Line X they've at their his dealership!

    Just had a call from my Dealership - My ST-Line X is nearly built (currently at 'Body Offline'). Delivery Date W/E 25th March They're sending me some 18 Plate Vehicle Reg's to choose from early next week :)

    Just checked with the sales guy I ordered by car with - He confirmed what @MrGinjaNinja said. Thankfully though, he did tick both options on my order. The call also cost me money as I added the Comfort Pack too - Only thing I haven't had now it door edge protectors.

    Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    I've been checking this forum for a few weeks as I ordered my ST-Line X back in November and was told there is a delay. The poor guy at Ford keeps giving me my fortnightly updates - The most recent being, "there is still no build date". If there isn't one then he's going to speak to his 'Progress Team' to see what's going on. To be fair they have been honest throughout - Even when I put my deposit down they said i'm looking at an April/May delivery. I'll guess I'll just have to be patient and wait. One thing I did read on a forum somewhere (not here), and I can't find it for the life of me - Some ST-Line's and X's that have been ordered with the Rear View Camera (inc. Rear parking Distance Sensors) - They seems to have not included the rear parking distance sensors when their car was finally delivered - They've had to have the Ford's 'Official' aftermarket sensors fitted. When I originally built the car on the site, I added the Rear View Camera, and the Rear Parking Sensors would not be selectable because it was included with the Rear Camera at £250. After I saw the post on the forum, I went back this week and reconfigured my car - You can now select both the Camera and the Sensors option, which slightly concerns me a little - suppose time will tell. Fingers crossed some forward thinking Exec at Ford comes up with an idea to solve the leather issue and the start to roll out the tract quicker.
