Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Thought it might be appropriate to seperate the discussions in the W2K Downunder thread relating to building and delivery status. It would give a common perspective for those tracking their cars, and allow the other thread to be used for general discussion for Aussies... and others who have an opinion or question.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Ordered mine first week of November, advised late Feb/early March potential delivery. Dealer sent me a screen shot last week off their computer showing production date was 27/1/12, location is currently Factory Vehicle Yard, planned delivery date 11/4/12.
I'm working on delivery mid to late May assuming customs delays etc.
Any earlier is just a bonus.
The longer it takes, the more I get to read from everyone else, and it gives the aftermarket guys more time to R&D accessories.
I'm planning on keeping this truck for minimum 10 years @ approx 15,000km's per year.
I can wait.....................but not forever:-)

You can get lucky...

Left a deposit for a Black Overland on Dec 11 '11 for delivery mid Jan '12. Can was available for pickup as at Jan 18 but ive had to wait as I couldnt sell my current car that quick. Pickup is Friday!

Turns out it was a cancelled order through the original purchaser being denied finance.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Congrats. The hard part is now approaching. Which ship is your car on? Once it berth's it can take upto 3-4 weeks to get to the dealership.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

I ordered a CRD Overland Black on black on black wood on the 12th November. I did request a 2012 build. Dealer told me today that Car is finished and waiting shippment. I can track the boats, but he still couldnt give any more details other than maybe Late feb/early march. I too am happy to wait (its acually for wife and kids....god help me). Shan

Hi. Sounds e your wife and kids will be having a great new ride.
If you ask the dealer for the VIN you should be able to track it on the ship.
By becoming a forum contributor, you can also get a build sheet.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Starting to wonder if I should be worried - I paid a deposit on 21/12/11 for a Laredo CRD. On 20/1/12 the dealer called to say that the colour wasn't available after all, but the "good news" was that our 2nd choice, Winter Chill, would be available 4 weeks before any other colour, but no actual date. Then on 10/2/12 we finally got a COM number and were told it was due into Aus in mid-April.
I've been added to the build tracking page by Milous and the vehicle is in PR (pre-release) and has been since 17/12/11, before I paid the deposit.
Given the 5-week shipping time (I've heard?), that means it needs to be scheduled, built and on the boat in about 4 weeks. Has anyone had experience with this - does it sound feasible? Thanks.
