Something wrong there, a few of us had ours arrive in Port Kembla on approx 29 August and we were all in ours before 10 Sept. It take no time for systematic customs clearances, the biggest delay is dealer delivery.

I'd be getting on the blower to the dealer!

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Spoke to dealer today, says by end of next week. Don't know if the MY12 build is slowing it down - have to wait and see.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

End of next week makes it 1 month since it arrived.

This has nothing to do with MY12. If it was in Port Kembla on 11 Oct, you should have had it +/- 20-22 Oct. Your dealer would have done all he / she could to get you into the car before the end of Oct to notch up the sale in the Oct figures and to earn that Oct commission.

I received mine in Brisbane within approx 12 days via Suttons Rosebery.

Enforcer got his in Sydney within approx 10 days of the vessel's arrival and that's with a towbar installed.

I think Deserthucker got his in Perth even sooner.

It may just be my suspicious mind but I tend to think they're stalling for a reason, ie, at the paint shop repairing a mishap or something else.

Is it a Sydney regional dealership? You need to apply some leverage.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

You do that! And don't be passive with him / her. Let it be known that others on this forum have received the rides within 12 days of he vessel berthing and 1 month is just not good enough. It took a month to sail from east coast USA. It shouldn't take a month from Port Kembla to Parramatta!

Also others looking to sign up may give this Parramatta dealership a wide berth if they're going to make a very long wait even longer.

Make sure you thump your fist on a counter when you get there tomorrow!

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Mine arrived at Port Kembla 15/10. Was supposed to be delivered to the dealer last tuesday, but delayed?? til monday. Then they will be fitting towbar and front tints, Suppossed to be ready by thurday / friday.

That's at Nepean Motor Group.

I suspect they wait until they can fill a whole car carrier before making the pickup

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Mine arrived at the dealer on a car carrier that only could carry 3 cars.
Very suspect these delays.
1 check your Vin's when you pickup your cars. Has it been sold twice?
2 damage, did something happen on the way over? two jeeps with unknown delays from port!

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Make sure these dealers are not holding onto the cars so they can show them to other potential customers. I know Parramatta often has "sold"cars sitting in the showroom.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

For those on the ANIARA it seems it has been delayed going through Panama canal, yet to enter. Original schedule was for a departure on the 5, pushing towards that XMAS date now.

Yeah, I noticed this,

the delay just gets longer and longer. I'm getting quite annoyed now. Was looking at the TDI Touareg, but then again, can just wait a month more and get my car :S

(And I doubt there are any new touaregs with the options I want in stock anyway)

Re: WK2 DownUnder

At least mine gets of the boat a few days earlier! Still I don't think I will have it ready to take to Fraser Is on 17th Dec. I'm not going to have enough time test / run it in. Last thing I want is to be stuck up at Indian Head needing a tow.

Spentan I heard there was a 3 month wait for audi's anyway??
