Mine is showing as "In Transit To The Dealer" and was told it would be at the dealer on the 6th November , i asked why it takes over 2 weeks to travel from Immingham to my dealer !
Was told that `In transit to dealer` actually means its sitting on the dock awaiting a transporter to ship it to the dealer and not actually on the transporter "In Transit to the dealer" :lol:

Why is the waiting times so different, could it be the colour choice, Mine will be gravity blue

I will be in touch with the dealer Monday as they promised to tell me when I would get it if I rang on Monday

I think some people may have managed to get the cars that some dealers would have ordered a few month back as general showroom stock , where as if you ordered an actual car , it would be considered a new build , and with all those emissions testing hold ups its been a few month longer than it should have been. mine was at least 4/5 month before it was even built at the factory.
