Yes it was a pretty well specced order.  I'm considering it karma for having to wait 8 months for my mk7 order.  Or early parole for good behaviour. 😁

To those who’ve ordered via DTD - how long was it between DTD confirming price/spec/lead time with you before the dealer called you to finalise the deal??

Cheers!

The dealership contacted me by email the day after I placed the order via DtD.   The dealer then phoned me the same day to take the deposit and a day or so after that I got my order number.

Wow - that’s quick!

DTD called me first thing yesterday to confirm - still waiting for the dealer to make contact! 20-22 week lead time at the mo. Might contact DTD tomorrow if I don’t hear anything.

Nice spec 😎 can I ask what features led you to spec the discover pro, just that I’m lost at what it actually gives extra over the standard system

I have a separate SIM for the car so direct connectivity is handy rather then data sharing with the phone. I like the Nav being available on the 'drivers' screen as I have today, rather than in the centre. The Head Up display potentially reduces the benefit of that. It was the last option ticked and I went back and forth with it. I like it in my 7.5R and carried other benefits in that car so ultimately ticked the box.

Fair enough :) With regard to the nav being available  in the drivers screen that appears to be standard now.

On the latest hardware version (D) with standard nav you can get nav maps on the dash display as well as the infotainment display.  

Here it is on mine with standard nav

Ordered mine about 2 weeks ago, on a Wednesday through DTD and Dealer rang me lunchtime on Friday to confirm the order. I then received confirmation email from both DTD and the dealer on the following Tuesday with an order number. one day later it appeared on the tracker as saying 'with the factory' where it hasn't changed any further yet. 

 

I have also since emailed the dealer to add another option, which was confirmed the following day. 

 

Quoted 20 weeks lead time by the dealer, I reckon it will be a September plate, if it arrives anytime past the first week of July I will request the dealer hang on to it until September.
