Popped into my Dealer today who told me my Rioja Red Allure 1.2VTI 3 Door which I ordered on 25th March 2013, and was quoted a possible 12 week delivery, has been built and is in transit.

They expect it to be available for me within the next two weeks.

This makes it about 7 weeks delivery.

Hi,
My dealer did say to allow 12 weeks but he expected it to be quicker than that, but did not want to disappoint me if it took longer.
I was pleasantly surprised today, as I called in to see a new 208GTI in Rioja Red, the same colour as I have ordered. I did not see the colour before ordering, but thought it would be good if it was being used on the GTI's.
It certainly looks good, an I am delighted with the colour. Then the dealer told me it would almost certainly be delivered within the next two weeks, which really made my day.
I will post a picture when I get it.

I had no issues at all when ordering my 208. Was told 12 weeks due to it being factory order. Ordered mine a week before you ordered yours and I got mine last monday.

Hasn't the dealer got a idea of any time scale? something a little more then you'll be getting it before the end of the year lol. Luckily the dealer I got it from basically tracked it for me from when it left the factory so they had more accuate dates of expected arrival

Well I
ordered my 208 on the 28th of Feb, from Bristol Street motors Ilkeston,
the dealers rang me up last week to say the guy who ordered my car,
& took my deposit has left, they had just found my folder, &
they wasn't sure how long it would be before the car arrived, but not
this month, I asked did they have an order number, & I would contact
Peugeot UK.
Customer Services have now wrote to me & told me the car hasn't
been ordered until the 2nd of May, so the 3 months I have waited don't
count!!! The Dealer hadn't even placed the order, & had lied to me.
Maybe, & only maybe, late June I could have my new car, I really feel like telling them to shove it where the Sun don't shine!!!!!!

If I was you I would use it as bargaining power to get the extras that you couldnt afford when you ordered before walking away - its their fault that you have to wait so they should make it worth your while - get the accessories list out and start barganing .....and dont forget the full tank on delivery as part of the apology!!
