Ordered

Post by Jackswan » Tue Aug 14, 2018 9:06 pm

Ordered a Seat Arona FR in Mongoose Gray with black roof last week.

The car was already in stock in Spain and been given a waiting time of between 2 to 4 weeks.

The car is presently status 30 and is on its way to a UK port

Congratulations on your order, glad that you, as I did, were able to reserve a car destined for the UK ensuring you get a decent delivery time. I hope you enjoy your FR as much as I enjoy mine.
I suspect your Mongoose might turn Magnetic!!

Thanks for the reply.
The car is for my wife as a 50th birthday present (don't know why I did that, as I wouldn't mind a new car myself :shock: )
just wondering when it will turn up as I was wondering if it could be stalled a bit and registered as a 68 plate for Sept 1st, as it is getting pretty close to that date. Anyone any idea if this could be done? Or am i being a bit cheeky? :D

I see that they have changed the colour to Magnetic on the website in the last couple of days. I wonder?

The original brochure (October 17) lists it as Monsoon Grey!
I guess the Marketing guys have to have something to worry about!

Just spoke to Seat Customer Services and I find out that the car has only been built last week. Should have been receiving it this week.😮

It is now Magnetic Gray and a 2019 FR model. Should I be expecting any other changes on the FR 2019 model?

The Arona was introduced late 2017, and have generally been built to MY19 specs since start, so only negligible spec changes.

You have already discovered the slightly different shade of grey paint

Seat have also told me that the car is waiting to be assigned shipment, so must also be on the dock.
They reckon about three to four week wait for the car.
So from being told that it was available from stock and a two to four week wait at the beginning of August, it has now seemed to have turned into a factory order.
Just wondering if this was anything to do with WLTP?

Not WLTP as Arona introduced after deadline 31/8/17 for new models (or 31/8/18 for existing models already on sale a year earlier)

Somebody has not been 100% truthful, From stock usually means in UK, sometimes on a ship about to arrive is included. Shouldn’t really include about to be built or still at factory (or the Barcelona dock multi storey car park)
