I ordered my Coop at the end of April. I have been told my car will be delivered to Leeds on the 13th. and they want another working week to prep it. So that will be a total of between 16 and 17 weeks wait :eek:

I've not done my patience any favours by regularly visiting this site, and looking at the new '05 pics. I had to go down to my local dealer in Trafford last Saturday to sit in one and remind myself what it's like. There was a car very similar to mine still in the wrapper so to speak and it has got me all impatient again.

Having read peeps comments, I'm hoping they get it early and so meet the 13th. Aug delivery date.

Fingers crossed.

I was hoping to fit an amp and base box to the standard unit (I've ordered the boot 6 cd changer with the car) But looking at the FAQ and the pic of the rear of the unit, there's no Line outs. It's a company car so not really wanting to fit an extra head unit. Love my music, what to do :confused:

I ordered mine on 24th March, but was originally going for a pre-facelift car. I changed my order in late April when the pictures of the 2005 cars were released, and I've just found out today that the car was deleivered to the dealer this morning. Should be picking up the car on Saturday morning, so it looks like the long wait is almost at an end.

Out of interest, I was originally given a delivery date to the dealer (Scotthall in Leeds - is this who you're dealing with?) of 13th August, and the car has come in a little bit early. If I were you, I'd give them a call; you never know, you might get some good news.

Pain is nearly over

"it's Friday I'm in love!" The Cure wrote and sang. Well it's the same for me. Friday the 13th. my car is being delivered to work.

One more day of work and it's here.

That's a 4 month wait.
