Plenty of people on here have an XF on order with delivery promised in the next few days, weeks or months. To get an idea of lead times, if you're waiting for your XF, please post your order date and dealer-suggested delivery date.

Ordered - mid-March

Delivery expected - First week August (could have been July, but there didn't seem any point in leaving it in long-term parking at Heathrow while we were on our hols!)

Ordered March and asked for delivery on 1st September to get new plate. Got a call from my dealer to say its starting on the construction line next week and will then be mothballed for a couple of months till we want to collect it. So, fingers crossed with that much notice should get it on time

I find this thread very interesting because I was told by my dealer in March that they had very nearly sold this years allocation. I understood that their dealer status within the network would ensure that they received about 50% more cars in this year than a lesser agency. I further understood that their allocation amounted to about 3or 4 cars a week. I remember thinking at that time that the total number of vehicles available for the UK market, based on the number of UK dealerships,would mean that the total would not exceed the low thousands in number, if that. Also I was being told that at that time, because of the progress they had made selling in to the allocation that they were now looking at delivery dates for September / October.
I now wonder if production at the factory has been increased to meet the demand or was the information I was being given wrong. They had my order and money so their was no need to exagerate the delivery position in order to have me commit and so I now just wonder.

Is there any logical reason why peop[le with extremely similar order dates should be getting such a wide variation in delivery?

When I ordered in march I was allocated the last slot in May for the Lincoln dealer
so it all depends which months allocation you manage to take up. Hope this goes
some way to explaining the variation in dates. Also the production line is at least one
week ahead of schedule.

OK MIckey, but look at the two previous posts - XF admin appears to be 3 weeks later than he was led to expect.

Within a week of ordering I was given a build date and delivery date and fortunately
they both came forward. Perhaps some of the movement of dates is due to the extras
having to be fitted. Maybe someone who has visited Jaguar could shed some light on this subject.

As I understood it from both the dealer and the factory the manufacturing process is very rigourous inasmuch that an order is placed by the customer,that order is then scheduled for production and the whole process is then in accordance with the specification sheet attached to the car. At anytime the factory will know where the car is and at what stage of production it has reached. Cars are only built to a customers order and are not being produced without an end user in the way that might well be the case with a volume car producer. If your car order was placed by the dealer and acknowledged by Jaguar with a build date it is hard to imagine that the delivery date would not be kept to. I think that you should address your question to the dealer and ask exactly where the car is in the process at this time. I was told that it would be possible to tell me exactly where mine was.

Yes it is completely possible to find out where your car is at any point. If the dealer wont play ball ring Jaguar directly with your order number and they will tell you.

To be honest re: my delivery date my end of may was just what I was told when placing the order. The only "official dates" dates I have, were given via letter.
