Factory to dealer time for a WK2
 
First off I'd like to thank everybody on this forum. Very helpful and informative.

So I ordered my WK2 late November and was told today that it was released from the factory on Jan. 6th and should arrive to the dealer about 10-12 days after that. Normally that wouldn't strike me as odd but I live in the Detroit area so I'm just surprised that it would take so long to make it to the dealer. Any info would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Highly dependent on the distance between assembly plant and dealership. Then there's the factor of proximity of dealership to rail yard. Some have waited days just from rail yard, some have waited weeks. Depends on how busy the rail yard is and how willing your dealership is to get the vehicle. Probably not the answer you're looking for but the durations you listed above are probably accurate for Detroit. Milous tracking could have helped with your tracking. PM vin# to him and he can add you to the tracking list. Although you're so close to delivery, maybe no reason to track now.

His dealer is in Detroit, I doubt it will get put on a rail car.

Picked it up on Monday so it was right at 12 days. Glad to finally have it, she's a beauty!
