Out of interest when did members who have taken delivery of their 3.0 in March and April place your order.

I tried to order a 3.0 when it appeared on the http://WWW.jaguar.co.uk website, but was told by my dealer 1st deliveries wont be until at least June 09. I placed my order in January 09 and took delivery March 09.

Was i misled?

You were plainly misled but not, I think, in a malign manner. :)
You were told perhaps what, at the time, the dealer understood to be the case.
Keep in mind that Jaguar was having great difficulty managing production because of the impact of the market downturn. Workers lost their jobs, the factory was adopting new shift patterns and the danger of suppliers going bust was very real. Not surprising if there is a lack of preciseness in projecting a delivery date to a dealer, who also may have been having difficulties of their own. :(

I visited my dealer on friday 16th January 2009 and paid a deposit then. I was advised that it should be ready late March / early April 2009.

Order was placed with Jaguar on 29th or 30th January and I took delivery on 26th March.

From my dealings so far, the dealer has been spot on with everything. :)

So my dealer did mislead me as they are part of a big dealer group guess they wanted to get rid of their 2.7 stock 1st. :evil: :evil:
