I live in anticipation of that call.
That's good news, not as long as we feared. Maybe yours and mine will be on the same ship.

That's good. Though according to my lot they can see when it's en route to dealer from the system up to 48hrs before arrival.

I will reserve judgement until Monday, I don't want to get my hopes up. But I am hopeful that I might get my car by the end of next week.
It would certainly be good if they arrived in the UK together.

Great news! So clearly the dealer had no idea....built, not built etc.

Exactly right and that's really why I'm not getting my hopes up just yet. If I get that phone call on Monday to say that it's arrived, then I will celebrate .

And so you should! I am sure its been built and the system show one thing or the other leaving the dealer in the dark! Tbh, its not the dealers fault but Volvo not providing accurate info.

My S6 was showing as scheduled to be built one week, but turned up just like that about 3 weeks early......Audi fault.

He's here! And my god is he gorgeous 😍
He has more toys on than I realised, basically every single optional extra, and he was the car for the head of Volvo UK who is now the head of Polestar (can't remember his name). He's off next week to be Polestar-ed too (had to be done and as it's on offer at the moment it's only fair)

I hope your cars arrive soon and when they should, I'll watch the post with interest x

All cars are he. Herbie, KITT, cherry cherry bang bang, General Lee....

I've called mine Trevor much to hubbys derision, as he's so clever 😊

He needs a good proper clean before I photograph him. Dealer's valets are pretty rubbish, and the drive from Milton Keynes to Kent in the rain didn't help. I've bought new buckets and a Wookiee mitt, so let's hope it doesn't rain. Just need to find my step ladder to reach the roof!
