That’s what I thought, but Dave didn’t believe so
the, as we know, official line is that the Velar line wasn't affected.
I did suggest that the availability would be divvied up and I'm guessing that's what happened.

However, as this shortage is affecting everything from dishwashers to buses, it'll be a safe bet to assume that even the mighty Velar has been stuffed.

The positive thing is that work are happy for me to use Luke's car and he doesn't want paying for the use- so I'll be up a few quid due to the car allowance.

looking like it, yes.
might add a bit of value to it, sir.

Still no idea what, if any, these so called tweaks are.

Hopefully it will come through soon, not a disaster I know, but when you have made the decision to buy somethin, you kind of want it real soon

I've just ordered some PVC fascia for the garage and they're quoting me 3 months... three bloody months for a bit of plastic.
Given that there is a lot of plastic in a Velar, I'd imagine Easter won't be far off the actual delivery date :rolleyes:

Lots of delays in the supply of plastic raw materials and when you can get it, the prices are through the roof 😱
