So Breeze have kindly agreed to put it in a flatbed and bring it up to Sussex next week, gratis. Have to say, can’t fault Breeze at all. Emma is a star! Such a contrast to
Othe experiences I’ve read about on the forums. Spent all day today trying to insure, roadside, away from House, no tracker etc! CAMC were the only people out of the more specialist offers who would touch it! £1k
Sorted now! Ready for delivery! Can’t wait
Brilliant , that’s a great service ! What your getting ? Is that 1K for insurance !!

I had similar reservations but this arrived today and everything ok! Dealer and delivery driver kept me informed process was as good as I could hope for given the current situation.
Our new Cali, Garfield, arrived today as well. Bit of a different experience having it delivered to the door but feel lucky that it has turned up with all the difficulties others have been having. Can’t fault dealer or driver.

Yes, Caravan and camping club wouldn’t quote w/o tracker , Comfort said the same, Safeguard wouldn’t because they couldn’t understand that I’m not the owner of it’s on PCP finance and were very woolly and vague . Caravan and Motorhome Club were really helpful and gave me confidence. V expensive but whatever, I’m hoping that the cash haemorrhaging will start to plateau once we got her . Alternative is to buy a house with plenty of parking space
Get that..my 60k X5 needed a tracker when new to get insurance £400 fo 3 year cover so £125 a year saved me a lot more than that having it fitted. Now it’s 3 years old so has a value less than £50k I don’t need to renew

Lovely enjoy ! Your right is done and you have peace of mind. We swithered about Ascot Grey. But weren’t brave enough to go for it without seeing it !

We were set on Candy Red, but saw an Ascot Grey Transporter when we were sniffing around Breeze Service centre in Pompey. Looks great

T6 Cali On Order
My 2¢.

Order placed yesterday (Spec Below). Dealer said he had spoken to factory and expects delivery in June which I'm not holding my breath on given the state of this thread. However I figured the sooner I place the order, the sooner I'll get it regardless of how long it takes. No build week but he said he expected somewhere around end of May.

Spec:

California Ocean SWD 199 PS2.0 TDI 7sp DSG.
Candy White / Bay Green (Two Tone)
17" 7J Woodstock Alloy
Shower Connection
All Weather Tyres 235/55
Chrome Pack
Awning in Silver
Bed Extension/Comfort Mattress
Safe Box
4 Keys

Exciting times. Hope these optimistic dates come good. Reassuring to hear some are lucky on here, think I saw an October order on here about to be delivered.
Did you consider the 80L fuel tank fir £78?

Bed extension is mis-named. It’s just a mattress topper. I partly wish I’d omitted this and gone after-market as some on this forum are convinced they’re more comfortable

Thank you i did wonder i had this as an extra but removed it. A bit misleading and i think it is bulkier than the after market

Very exciting! I figured the Ocean (in the UK at least) comes with so much stuff as standard (that are options in other markets) that I didn't need to load up on options.

80L tank. I honestly didn't. I did a back of a napkin calculation and reckoned it would give me an extra 70 miles or so onto an existing range of (~500 miles). Can't see that ever being useful to me and I didn't want to risk it becoming a weight issue given some of the conversations in this thread about weight potentially affecting build times (unclear if this is the case or not but not worth it for me).

Considered the Discover media pro but I like the physical volume dial and I use my phone for everything anyway so imagine it will be sitting on car play for 95% of it's life anyway.

Considered ArtVelours but there is a real lack of accurate photography anywhere for me to make a decision on that so will do something aftermarket at some point perhaps.

I thought the bed extension was the wooden back board that moved up in stages so you can have different degrees of back rest while watching a movie or looking out of front bellows opening ?

No, that’s the ‘lounge’ feature. Bed extension as mentioned above is the misnamed mattress.

So if I have the S2S mattress I don’t need to tick the bed extension ?

I'd change the spec to 204 PS because VW aren't making 199 PS now.
