    Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    Had my ST Line X 140 for nearly two weeks now. Cannot wait to push the start button everyday! Road holding superb as you can really throw it into corners. Engine noise in the cabin is awesome as it sounds like a 3 cylinder V8! Build quality is superb and love all the electric gizmos, etc. Well pleased with the colour choice of Magnetic Grey as well. Had several new Fords but this is the best yet!

    Actually collected my ST Line X 140 today. WOW, looks awesome in Magnetic Grey which sets off the 18" rock metallic wheels. Despite the frustrating wait it was well worth it. I guarantee you will be impressed when all your cars are delivered too!

    UPDATE: At last, car delivered to dealer today! I needed a first-aider when he told me as its been over 7 months! Yesterday they could not find where it was either in Flushing or Dagenham and today at 11am status changed to 'out to dealer' and 12noon it arrived! Ford really are customer focused aren't they! Pick it up Wednesday but its been painful.

    I complained to my dealer about the same thing but got no meaningful response. My St Line X 140 was ordered on the 15th August, built on the 15th February and been waiting for shipping to the UK in Flushing since 21st February. Very frustrated with the lack of updates. The dealer has done their best with what little information Ford have provided but Ford has absolutely no customer service or customer focus.

    All I would say is go for what you want otherwise you will never be totally happy. You get one chance when ordering a new car and you don't want to regret not having had this or that ! I got the t-shirt on that one 25 years ago

    Why di you not ask them to hold it until the new plate? I did! If they told u it had to be registered at time of ordering.....they lied!

    Ordered my ST-Line X 140PS on 15th August and eventually got a confirmed build date of 15th February so dealer said i should have it within 3 weeks. Ordered in Magnetic Grey with 18" Rock metallic wheels, camera/sensors, door edge protectors, comfort pack, driver assistance pack, pano roof and B&O sound system. Original delivery date when ordered was end of October so only 4 months late!
