I have just heard from my dealer (Beziers, south of France) that my car is at Le Havre awaiting transport to him, it should arrive during next week. This is the time I was originally quoted - "during first half of March". I expect to collect it during the following week.
Dealers here do not normally deliver except in exceptional circumstances - he delivered my Evoque three years ago as I couldn't drive due to just having had an operation to repair a torn tendon in my shoulder, the car sat in my garage for a month before I was able to drive it ! - frustrating.
Looking forward to having sensible loadspace which is the main reason for changing to the disco sport.
