I've gone through the Barnsley branch they are supposedly getting some SR SE on stock in a week or so I put my name against one of those mid November... We'll see what happens
Mine was supposed to be there last week but no word yet.

We ordered our MG4 in Sept and after several chasing phone calls we have been told it is in the country at the start of last week and when they called us back at the end of the week it was not in the country. Ended up going to another dealer to see if I could swap the order to them as I am not impressed with the place I did the original order with. The new dealer said its highly unlikely any orange Trophy will be hitting the uk before the new year. When I placed the order I was assured they would have it in stock within 8 weeks, well thats been and gone. Dealers are getting the grief from customers because of MG's poor management of the situation I think.
Yeah it seem crazy. I was told by Burnley MG that there were 200 Orange Trophy specs sat in Bristol waiting so they should be quicker than any other colour. But it looks like January when they start building to order will be when most books get filled.

I'm better the bigger more lucrative dealerships are getting the best deliveries and smaller out of the way ones are getting what's "available"

I ordered a white trophy in August which eventually arrived mid November, I rejected it because of the software problem with the driver attention fault. So I'm now waiting for replacement fault free trophy, which I was told could be 16 week's, and if this one's faulty I will reject that one as well.
I also hope they're now fitting a modified breather for the reduction box to cure the oil leak issue.

There are no direct factory/dealer orders yet
The one he was promised for last week, I was asking was it one he's ordered without the dealer saying they had any coming or has he ordered when he's been told they have an allocation.

Ordered my white Trophy on the 11th Nov with anticipated delivery first or second week of Dec. Spoke to deeler yesterday and they confirmed they still have not received the car from the port. Apparently it’s a lottery when cars get transported from the port.
they were able to give me the VIN number so nothing else to do but just wait till it turns up.

Talking to a dealer last week and they said there is only 1300 ish available this year across the whole of the uk. If I wanted a SE SR they have them available for collection within a few days but no Trophy's

I got told by cars2 Barnsley when I went in they had 4 SE SRs coming in last week of Nov first week of Dec, and I put my name against one of those 2nd week of Nov so we'll see what happens as when last spoke to them they said they don't know when they're coming and a transporter just turns up... Not sure how realistic that is mind

If there is no available stock and limited supply for 2023 why are they currently running tv ads for vehicles they can't supply, are they expecting to sell all the faulty stocks first, I am seriously contemplating cancelling the order.

We are in the same boat (well our car was ON the same boat, docked around 17th November), just a waiting game like you say now for it to be transported from dock to dealer!

Well, most manufacturers of EVs are quoting a much longer wait, so I suppose they think it’s a good deal.

What you do behind closed doors is no concern of ours unless you are an MP or a member of the royal family 🤣
