It was a windy day.

Just spoke to the transport company. My car is going on a train (might be on the Ghan with Ruby) and will be here either on the 12th or 15th.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Ordered my Overland CRD late August 2012. Delivery date quoted: Approx Mid January 2013. Will update in this thread as more (mis)information comes to hand. Have already sold the old car (Subaru Forester XT Premium). Dealer has loaned me a Corolla until the GC arrives.

I have nothing valuable to contribute tonight (what's new?) but Friday is so agonisingly close I can't stand it. I just want it!

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Advised by the dealer last week our MY13 Overland has arrived at their yard out of the blue. They only said a few days earlier that they expected it in December. Not complaining!
I'm just getting them to take care of the front tinting and tow bar before delivery.
With the date of manufacture 1/7/12 it must be part of the first batch of MY13's in Aus...

Sounds more likely that you have been given a cancelled order. No wories, providing it is what you ordered.
Just a FYI, car's do not arrive "out of the blue" The dealers get several alerts showing the progress of the car once it gets onto a ship.

I would agree however something is a little strange about this one. The VIN is definitely MY13 and my order was non-standard with the rear DVD. I ordered it just before MY13 production and the estimated delivery kept moving up and down, then there it was. There also might be more to the fact that it has 10km on it.
It's here, as long as it is not a lemon, I'm happy.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

10km isn't bad I don't think, but that's me - mine new had 15 on it. Did you ever get the vin or a tracking number from the dealer so u can check if it is the one you ordered?

No, never had the tracking number or VIN (up until now). I didn't want to prolong my waiting pain and tried to forget about it until it arrives.
Funny thing with 10km on it though. The person at our leasing company is insisting it is a used car.. WOW I told them to sort it out with the dealer.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Newbie! Do they think a car just magically appears at a dealership? Maybe a stork drops them off... Mine had 17 but had a bit of running around town to get tints etc.

Maybe they are a bit special and thought it was 10k km not 10km. Maybe u will get it cheaper as 'used'

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

From memory, the average delivery Klms is around 15. That allows for the shunting between Detroit car yards, shipyards, and at this end with Prixcars and dealership.
