Yep, all phone conversations have been followed by emails to ensure there is an audit trail of what has been agreed.

Just a quick update on my previous posts. My D200 SE with options was ordered mid March. As previously said, I prefer to keep the MY21 specs. This is the message from Dealer today :
“According to our head of business it will be a 21 model year as it already has a build date”

Mine was ordered late March, updated build to early June, then all builds cancelled, now updated to late August or early Sept so bit odd that any ordered from March being told they will be delivered in June....especially as I was told last week they are still not resumed production yet with 8 weeks of backlog orders when they do....so many different views from the dealers at the moment.

I ordered my P300e HSE with a couple of simple extras in December and was initially told end of May, then end of June and now end of July. I'd better get MY21 as I specifically wanted the 360 camera and clearview mirror. I can't believe some who ordered months after me either have theirs already or have similar due dates

There’s and order and then there’s an order. Dealers have cars allocated to them, that if no one ‘wants’ the dealer still have to spec and pay for, usually as stock, demo or management cars.

If there’s a car in the pipeline with no buyer and a customer turns up, that car will then be specced to the customers requirements and his car is ordered with a relatively short lead time (chip shortages, etc. Apart).

If the dealer has sold all his allocation a new order goes in at the end of the queue with the longest lead time and is vulnerable to any delays in that time. I suspect this may be what’s happened to you.

I wonder if that explains the high number of Management cars - ie one previous owner, LR, 12 months old and very low mileage.
My last two have been "ex-management" cars, HSE with toys 12 months ish old and £12k+ cheaper than new, both registered to LR.

You don't have the joy of specifying all the toys that YOU want, but the colour and basic specification are there if you are prepared to wait - maybe not 6 months ! It's still a nice feeling - nearly new.
With any luck the previous owners has had all the niggles sorted by time you come into ownership - missing boot mechanism anybody :)

2016 DS HSE auto, for 45k nice (grey!) car.
2014 Ewok for 6 months, really really rubbish.
2008 FL2 for 185k miles, should have kept her.
2006 FL1 for 110k miles, brilliant car.
2000 FL1 for 100k miles, fell apart but started the LR bug

By management cars I meant dealer management, sales people, etc. rather than the LR Management cars (which are still around in high volumes).

Some JLR people get two cars every few months (nine months springs to mind), they are usually what isn’t selling particularly well, but I have seen new models somewhat surprisingly early in their lifecycle as JLR scheme cars, perhaps a bit of extended real life development. Recently Defenders, Velar as well as lots of DS and Evoques (probably favoured as more tax efficient).

Living around Warwick it seems at times that every other car is an O (Oxford) plate JLR scheme vehicle.

So true! And my first brand new car purchase to boot. :roll:
That said, I'm right in the middle of a ca. 600 mile round trip tour of the North West looking for a new home, and so far, 🤞the car is performing well, and the climate seats in particular are a revelation in this warm weather. 👍😅

So earlier this week my dealer phoned and re-“confirmed “ that the date is still set to 24th June and the status of the car is still committed for build.

Apparently there is no status between “committed for build”, and “built” so all we can do is cross fingers at this point.

However I got an interesting email today “Get ready for your discovery sport” from Land Rover which looks like it might be tied into production somehow, so I’m hopeful it might be finally being built.

Has anybody else had similar emails as their car is being built?
