Just had notification from the dealer, looking like first week of February but subject to change....
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...
I've assumed it has as was told last week it would be placed on order...a question to ask though.

Dealer could be talking about their delivery date, so the delay between factory build and showroom delivery could depend on the transporter company schedule/ factory pickup schedule, and the 2 weeks shutdown over Christmas and New year.

Normally about a week to 10 days IF the dealer has called it forward for delivery.
Sometimes the dealers may need a gentle reminder to get things moving.

Just been told my new build date is 7th December (was 11th Jan), with delivery date of 18th Jan. So can only hope delivery date might change, as 6 weeks from build to delivery is a long time!

I was told build date of Jan 11th with due date of 18th too, but even as they were saying that the Jaguar order sheet was saying build date of December 7th. Looks like they like to manage expectations until they are sure the car is built / going to be built.

I agree, difficult balance to get between customer expectation on delivery dates and the need for JLR to be able to manage production. One thing is for sure, i know i will have a cracking car when its ready!

Just been told by my dealer that my car is being built this week, but they are still expecting delivery in January due to Christmas shutdown. I too think this is a bit much, as surely Jaguar would not want to have cars sat waiting around for quarter end that could be added to their sales figures.
