Finally got a Vista screen update for you @Wonky_Donkey

Not great news though as after being told by my dealer in January, and then again in February that may car was at the dock waiting to get on a ship, it's the same story in March.

According to the below I think my car is still at Veracruz, with a VIN tracker ship date of 24th Feb, and compound in on 26th Feb on Vista, looks like a literally missed the boat for the 28th sailing of the Immacolata. But hopefully I will get on the Grand Halifax with those FE orders that are coming through finally.

My dealer also said he knows there are extra checks, but not sure where these are happening - again a case of us knowing more than the dealers.

I am a bit disappointed as mine is a Black ER RWD built 2nd December last year, and other more recently built cars are already on boats. We're obviously learning to live with disappointment after disappointment, so I will hang on....

Your dealer should have a list of his cars that are on the 2 ships that are on the way. Ask him if he has got it. If he hasn't ask him to ring MME shipping office at FordUK to get it. I told Rebecca on Thursday night that some dealers either weren't getting the list or were getting it but not sharing with customers and she said she would speak to whoever was dealing with that side of things and get them to sort it out.

Thanks @portlandg actually it was your update on Thursday that prompted me to check again with my dealer! (Thanks for your efforts!!) I asked him directly about the list but he didn’t respond on it. He seems pretty junior and, while enthusiastic, doesn’t seem to be that clued up! I may just ask Rebecca directly as some others have done.

Was really excited when I saw that I had a letter from Ford this morning! Turned out to be my Charging Pass, was expecting something abit more exciting than that, but neither the less, feels like the delivery is getting closer!

Another bit of advice, check what your insurance cost will be before ordering! I'm now getting quotes at no lower than £890 and a significant excess.

And it's worth noting my quotes have been going up and down since I started getting quotes in December. With a LOT of insurers not doing this car including LV which surprises me.

Although the extra insurance cost comes with the bonus of no road tax to pay.

Wow! I pay £190 pa for my Toyota C-HR hybrid. But I still have to pay road tax. I imagine that once they're here and the insurance companies have done their checks the prices will change. After there's none on the road at present apart from press cars so no-one has had any experience of them.

Even so £800 or so is doable as we plan to get rid of both our cars and just have one as my wife wants to retire- so big savings anyway!

Everybody is different with different circumstances. I'm getting quotes of around £350 ish. That's based on low mileage, no convictions, 5 years NCB and business use with 2nd driver

I spoke to Rebecca yesterday afternoon and she told me she is leaving her current role that day , she is helping someone new to the system to start with but only in between doing her new job
Sounds like more confusion on the way 👎
