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.

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.

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.

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.

Build sheet worth the subscription alone IMHO

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.
