Thanks, I saw a 2 litre Supra a fortnight ago - the first time I'd seen a Supra in the wild. It was red but absolutely filthy and it didn't stand out as much as I'd hoped - I'm sure it would've looked fantastic when clean but it confirmed what one of the sales team said to me, some colours only look their best when they're clean and the sun is out to make the colour pop whereas the yellow just looks good no matter what.
Certainly enjoying the ownership experience as I slowly get my head around the iDrive settings. Even the keys were presented in a beautiful wooden casket.

Delivery has slipped 3 months to mid-May.

Only taken 2 weeks since ordering 😂
At least you had a date.
I had about 8 quotes, some answered unknown leadtime.
One dealer clearly said 7 to 9 months.
Last dealer that I ordered from said, 3 to 6 (but I am 100% certain it is 7 to 9 months).
After signing my lease contract, 3 weeks passed and still, now ball-park lead-time yet.
To be honest, it is better than the Jaguar XE I had ordered which was 16 months lead time.

Still waiting for any official lead-time... :/
With COVID kicking off again in EU doubt it is going to get any shorter...

I ordered mine the day before yesterday and was told "around May" but other dealers were telling me "August" which I think is probably nearer the truth.
So how does this work then, at some point, you get given an actual date do you?

Anyone here expecting delivery of theirs soon e.g Jan/Feb?

At some point, you'll get an official build week and from then updates should be more forthcoming. Until then, it's a wait and see.

I'm currently on May delivery and hasn't slipped recently. *Touches wood*

I do not even have the option to check myself online. Need to email the dealer several times to be told "no ETA in the system". :(

Early October. I'm getting monthly updates from the dealer so next week I'll know if it's slipped further on ETA.

Got my latest update today. In video format from the dealer, how..... modern.

Still 20th May ETA so hopefully there's a bit of confidence returning for supply chains, hopefully, hopefully...

Please Austria, don't let me down.

I’ve been given my first official ETA today and have been told end of September!
I am being told they expect this might be brought forward though.
On the one hand it would be nice to have it on a new reg but then again, ownership just as we were going into winter would suck a bit
