Hi guys,
is it really normal here to wait a week for a car that is already in stock?

I booked the car on Sunday/10th from SZR showroom and in the purchase agreement it is mentioned that approximate delivery date is today/16th.
I checked again today and they said that car is still in stock yard/Jebel Ali, and most likely will only be ready on Monday/18th.

They are saying that the car needs to be checked first (PDI) and there is long queue to deliver new car to each dealers. Blablabla.

This is my first time buying a new car here, and I know approximate delivery date can vary, but basis my experience in my home country dealers only need 2-3 days to deliver new car.

Any thoughts?

Thanks for your reply. I asked for the silver color.
Best of luck for both of us. Hopefully no more delays.

finally got my car today.
So far car runs great, still keeping it below 4K RPM.
All reviews mentioning about low torque but for daily city drive I think it's still ok.
Clutch pedal travel is a bit far, need more time to adjust my driving style.

Congrats on your new car!

Don't worry about the torque - the engine takes a good 5-7k and a couple of oil changes to get broken in. Just be gentle and she'll just get faster

For reference, here's mine

@AbsolutKev86 : thanks, you will get it soon.
I always been the guy who likes the car as it was designed, so I will ask for the exhaust tips when I do the 1K service. So far not planning to buy other things.
@86 Legend : thanks mate. @i_giado : thanks, love your writings for ME motoring.
