Welcome.
Quite a step-up from your current car but at least you will enjoy an Ad-Blue-free world!

Sounds nice, the red looks good. I've added to my spec twice since my order, so the delay has been good in that respect, but really hoping to have a build date by the end of this week.

Yep won't miss those boot fill ups!

Thanks, can't wait to see it in the flesh. Opted for 18" Black matrix alloys but tempted by the 19" vemons although hoping I don't change my mind before it's too late!!!

Hi, I completed paperwork with Lex on 21/9 for XE 250ps R Sport and they gave standard delivery date of 21/12. Dealer said should have the build date today and just been told its 11/1/2019 with delivery sometime end of January. He said the date may fluctuate. So quite a wait!

Hmm the dealer has now sent my order form through to sign off a change, and the build date on that is actually December 7th, but delivery date is January 18th....

Not sure what it means, it could be that the January 18th date gives them flexibility to change things around or it could be that Christmas shutdown slows everything down.

Have they sent you a copy of the order from Jaguar's system? That will give you your actual planned build date. I am getting the feeling that there is a lot of managing of expectations going on, it doesn't make sense that a car with a build date of December 7th is still being anticipated for end of January in my case. Especially as it's end of quarter for Jaguar in December so surely they will want to get any built cars out the door by the end of the month for higher sales.

I still don't know why my dealer told me it was a January 11th build date when Jaguars own system says December 7th...
