T6 VW California Delays

Has anyone put an order in for a T6 Cali recently (within the past week) ? I have contacted four dealers so far this week and they are all giving build dates of week 28 which is June so I can't see delivery happening until July.

We are worried as we are now going to miss a lot of the season, we also need to take into account further delays.

Tempted to maybe buy a T5 but prices seem to be holiding up well.

Hello Alandjohn. In my limited experience that build week seems fairly accurate. We placed an order yesterday and we were advised it will probably be built in May / June (subject to final confirmation from the factory).
We are OK with this as our daughter wants to revise for her final exams in June (limiting our weekends away) - but we are keeping our fingers crossed for a delivery date by early July as we have made plans for the remainder of the summer that are based on the van arriving.

Don't forget that you can always negotiate money of the listed prices of any T5's you see.

Hi
We finally ordered our VW T6 Ocean on Monday . Hurrah.
It's been a long journey , 12 mths to finally place an order. Have hired T5 x2 & nearly bought T5 180 DSG demo with nearly 9% discount last July. Decided to wait for the T6.
Told delivery 18 to 20 wks. We're happy to wait. Our first major adventure will be to Northern Spain & Portugal in September. The forum has been invaluable in helping choose our added options.

I ordered last Tuesday (from Guy at Preston) and have been told I have a week 14 build slot (early April) and then 4-6 weeks until delivery to me.

Hi, we were hopping to get an end of season T5 deal, however the prices remained very high so decided to go for the T6 and have the exact spec we wanted. It was ordered in Nov with a Feb build date and delivery late March. We have everything crossed expecting a phone call saying it will be early. 1st of march would suit me. good luck its tough being patience.

We are so excited that we have finally ordered our van especially as I've been ill for the last few months.

Don't despair. We ordered our T6 at the end of October on the basis of a build estimate of April. When the order was accepted by VW it showed an estimated build date of week 5 which then came down to a confirmed build slot week 4 (this week :) ). I haven't heard for sure that it was built this week but assuming it was we are looking forward to 1 March collection - exactly 4 months from order.

Not a lot to disagree with in your post, might be a mistake. Glad you are on the mend and now so much to look forward to :thumb

Between now and week 'something' life will go on and then before you know it a brand spanking new Ocean will be ready for collection! And it will be exactly what you want, with no compromises :) It makes sense to jump now, because the queue is only getting longer!

Mandy, I am sorry I don't know what you mean. I have not put a posting (yet) under this topic. Can you explain? Have I inadvertently pressed a button or something? Graham

Realise now that because my tablet is very "frisky" (sensitive) it has probably happened when swiping without my knowledge. My apologies, really sorry, definitely wouldn't disagree because we are waiting too - will be much more careful in future.

We are also very excited having ordered our T6 end November with 9 weeks wait. Unfortunately it slid back to 11, and yesterday to 15 weeks, and is still unconfirmed.

Hope you are feeling better. The anticipation of getting out in the Cali is medicine in itself. Graham

Do you think the slippage is due to it being a 4M DSG Ocean?

Have been told similar. Order 204 4motion manual. Initial build estimate wk 18. Then down to week 9 now back up to week 18. All unconfirmed still. It's a pain as I got rid of current car which I had finance on so I could save enough funds for what I thought was imminent arrival. Now I fear it may be a somewhat longer wait.
Hey ho. Enjoying public transport for a few months :-/
