Dealers should be able to tell you this once build date is confirmed but you will have to ask the question they won't offer the information.

About 4 weeks for me.
I went to my dealer last Wednesday in the hope of making a couple of amendments to my order. I ordered my car on 30th July. My dealer had already ordered a model for stock on 20th May so that was amended to meet my specification.
It appears that the lock down date was 18th August but I was never told this so unfortunately I cannot now make any changes.
Build date is 18th September and delivery to me in Spain is quoted as 23rd October.
Given what others have said on here regarding delays - if all goes to plan - I think I've done well.
Ironically I'll be in the UK when the car is delivered to Spain and have a Halewood factory tour booked for the same week!

You fellas and gals in the Eu are so very lucky - we need to wait 3-4 months for ours.

All in all Melb-AU, it's roughly the same wait for us :cry:

Out of interest, where is your LR being built?

My lock down date (last chance to change your spec) was 14th July with a build date of 21st August. So about 5 to 6 weeks before build.
Delivery tends to be about 2 to 3 weeks after the build date.

A lot of dealers forget to tell you there comes a point when you can't change your spec. Mine didn't tell me, and it was only because I knew the system that I found out when I asked.

Everyone should ask their dealer for their build sheet. The last page has the lock done date as well as the build date and handover date.

You don't need a VIN (in fact my build sheet doesn't have it yet)

My dealer could give a build sheet only a build code. Said build dates could come forward a bit I should get conformation towards the time.

I wasn't aware there are multiple factories for builds .....???
All I know is UK & shipping from Southhampton to Australia.

Mine will be build 16/10/15 and delivered the 20/11/15 (ordered in late june)
I guess that delivering it to Australia, is a long way via sea
