Same spec as mine. I ordered 12th Jan and car arrived in UK on Sunday. No word from dealer on collection date yet though.

Don't suppose you know what date your car arrived in the UK do you? Trying to guesstimate when I might be picking mine up.

Mine was shipped from Barcelona on 1st March and arrived at the Port of Tyne on Sunday 11th. Boat stopped in London on 9th March, so depends where yours will be getting off.

No idea on the wait time post shipping...

We were told last week that ours was on its way over and would be up to a 4 week wait before we could collect it. Fed up of waiting now. Ordered back in November on launch day. Starting to think we should have gone elsewhere.

Hope my experiance below helps. All these details are stored on the "detailed order form" that the dealer has access to.
I know this as a friend of ours works for Seat, and he gave us all these details when we ordered our Ateca last year.

My FR was ordered on the 8th Dec.
It was accepted by the factory on the 12th Dec
Dealer confirmed the above on the 4th Jan and told me that
Build week was the 5th week (29th Jan - 2nd Feb) they only work on a 5 day week.
He called to say that it would leave Spain week 7 (12th Feb - 16th Feb) exact date not known
It arrived at Sheerness on the 26th Feb.
Transported to Seat Derby on the 28th Feb, I was to collect on the 3rd /4th March but to the weather and paperwork issues I'm collecting this Friday.
Cant wait.

So from Order at dealers to original collection date is 85 days, or 2 months and 23 days.

I assume that was 9 'calendar days' rather than 'working days' ?

In any case, just under two weeks (max.) does sound about right though!
