How long does it take to build them. When you see the documentaries of the production lines it looks like it should only take hours.
DEFECTED TO SKODA.

I spoke to Lex on Friday and they checked with BMW, according to them my 225xe was being built and should be arriving a BMW Corporate in Solihull week 29 (w/c 16/07/18).

Just spoken to Lex as there was no update on their portal this week, they spoke to BMW who have confirmed my 225xe is due into their Solihull site on 17th July (Tuesday next week), they said they will confirm its arrival at the dealer on Wednesday 18th! So it should be with me the following week. If that pans out as expected that would be 17 week lead time. Got my charge point (Black Eo Mini) booked in for 9th August, going to order my Type 2 cable next week.

Lead time update. 2weeks ago I was told a 12 week lead time for a 220i 2AT. Today I’m being told my expected delivery date is now end of November... so literally doubled to 20-22 weeks.

Currently looking at alternatives again now.... :(

Production completed yesterday, depending on when it gets here I'm tempted to leave it hanging around until 1st Sep.
