    Pretty safe bet. Mind you I did notice the Welcome Experience website was updated over the weekend, maybe Saturday as it'd changed to shipped when I checked, email received today confirmed it.

    Tell the dealer to stop being precious and hand over the VIN

    So I ordered my 162TSI RLine back in early Feb. Was told at the time late July/ August delivery. Have recently been told it's going to be October now. I get the MY18 build but still it's turning out to be a mammoth wait. Don't get the crazy wait times. My GTI was 4 months wait. This will be a 7-8 month wait if it does come in October :/

    Me too. I ordered 26 Feb. was told July/ early August. Now mid Oct, but that is when the boat lands so really start of Nov. I don't get it and the lack of information on why doesn't fill me with joy or confidence either.

    Which dealer did you buy from?

    I have ordered/received my New Tiguan

    Not much information you can get when the car you bought hasn't even got a build date yet! I got mine from the Cricks Hwy dealership in QLD.

    Don't worry the car will come and you'll know a lot more once it goes into production. Just a waiting game unfortunately for those of us that can't bring ourselves to buy off the floor lol.

    I have ordered/received my New Tiguan

    Hi folks. Just a quick one. Has anyone else's dealer refused to provide a VIN. I know for certain that my car has arrived at Port Melbourne and has been waiting on compliance plate since 12/6. I was told today that it's been held up in customs for whatever reason. Happy to give that the benefit of the doubt. The thing that bothers me though, is that I've asked gently a couple of times for the VIN only to be given a flimsy "I can't give it to you, we don't have that detail yet". I know full well they have a VIN, car wouldn't have left the factory / boarded a ship without one. So I'm happy to give this short delay the benefit of the doubt, but shrouding the VIN in mystery is not exactly filling me with confidence at this very late stage of the process. Anyone think of any plausible reasons why? Thanks

    The only reason I can think of is if he has promised your car to someone else ,he's stalling you till the next delivery.
    How do you know that your car is at port Melbourne. Can you track the car without a vin number?

    They gave me the name of the ship it was on, so have been able to track the boat itself. Then they updated me to say it had arrived at port and that it was going through compliance. I've also been getting the VWA updates by email, so it's definitely here. All sounds above board, but it's just the refusal to provide the VIN that bothers me. I wouldn't have thought that would be a problem if all was on track. Perhaps I'm over thinking it, but something just sounds a bit off.

    Maybe you are over thinking it.
    Ask them for a recent updated printout of the nadcon all the details of your car will be on that.

    I could be wrong but i think compliance plates for different markets are fitted at the factory I've never heard of customs holding cars for compliance unless if they are second hand /classic ,lh drive etc.
    But again i was proven wrong before
