Mine landed at Pt Kembla on 19 June and at dealer late Friday. Delivery this Thursday so 10 days to dealer and and 16 days total. I'm having tow bar and rock rails fitted so that has probably slowed delivery. Anyway seems vehicles are moving through ok at present compared to some experiences here.

Well this post must be the nearest post in this thread to final delivery. I am picking up the GC 2 hours from now. Might not see you all for some time. Good bye for now!

Dont forget the BuildSheet.

I am guessing your delivery will now be in Sept. Test will be if it can get to Curtis Bay before end of July.

Got the build sheet. Looks like everything that should be there is there, so that's good news.

Dealer still tells me October delivery but that may just be them erring on the side of caution.

Does anyone know how long it usually takes to clear inspection? Mine's been there since the 7th.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

If it is not on the boat now, I would expect late sept/early oct. It will generally be 6-8 weeks once it is on the boat. Using this site to track it will let you know when it is on the water. It seems the dealers are more likely to over promise and under deliver.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Studgun, your's is past inspection, and is now in a holding yard ready to be loaded onto a railcar.
You can use the below as a rough guide. I have seen cars move from production line to freight train in 3 days, while others sat in a holding yard for weeks. Same goes for Curtis Bay.

Detroit holding yards 7-21 days
Railcar from Detroit to Curtis Bay 7 days
Sitting on wharf at Curtis Bay around 14days
Boat to Sydney is around 30 days
Prixcars 10days
Roadfreight to Tennant Crk 7 days
.

Let the torture begin. I check at least three times a day to see if mine's progressed. Can't wait to get my hands on it.
