I've been waiting for over 48 hours for a reply on my finance and haven't had a reply despite chasing.

Blamed on a backlog.

Eugh.
I completed my form yesterday just after dinner, got accepted mid morning today.

Not sure, as per the post above I was accepted for finance around dinnertime today - at what point is your order secured? Presumably not until the order for the car is completed and signed?

I guess once the finance is agreed and the hire agreement is subsequently signed off. Mine took around 24 hours for each.

Filled application Tuesday. Accepted Wednesday. However not received hire agreement. Enquired today to be told that underwriters had not come back to Arnold Clark. So abit worried now. Hopefully just a back log as too many orders due to this forum. Haha

I've got another contact at AC, but after I asked for an application yesterday I've heard nothing!

Be gutted if I miss out on this deal. frown

The quote I have says valid for 28 days. However I assume that means diddly squat.

The thing with leases (and being a regular on the PH leasing thread even when i dont need one, i've seen it from others) you need to move fast if a deal crops up as you dont know when it will get pulled, go up in price etc. The old 'you snooze, you lose' is very apt in a lot of cases. I hope they are just working through a backlog, fingers crossed.

Agree, it's a delicate game. Only found out about the deal on Thursday. Imagine it's been pulled tbh too good a deal that nobody can even get close to.

I did see a deal based on stock cars with a leasing company, its £40 more per month compared to my deal but it's in stock..
Here's the link in case any one misses out on Arnold Clarkes deal and is willing to pay more per month.

Had an email from AC to say all has been done at their end and the dealership has the order so they are waiting on an ETA.
Was told to basically ignore the ETA in the portal initially as it’s a date they have put in (sounds like they have to put something in), once the dealership comes back it will be updated I assume.

I’ve had an email back. There’s a massive backlog they are working through. Everything should be ok.

I had a chat with BMW genius on Friday, apparently UK 1 series production will start again in Q2. I then tried to work out what was going on with my order, the best they could do was narrow my search down, I am expecting a call today or tomorrow from a dealer who may be able to share more info on my order.
Will report back as soon as I hear anything

I submitted the finance application on Thursday last week. Got accepted on Friday. Hire Agreement came through today.
Impressed with the communication and quick replies so far.

I’ve not even seen a 128ti in the flesh? I had a drive around a couple of dealers over the weekend and had a look at the externals of a few M135s. I’ve just had a video tour of a normal 1 series from my local dealer.

Really surprised! Would you mind sharing your point of contact with me? Every time I call up I get fobbed off with "give it another 48 hours" - and the lady who I sent my application form off through doesn't return until tomorrow. David was helpful, but even he hasn't replied to the emails I sent today.

Pretty frustrating when I sent everything off on Wednesday and am still yet to hear back!

Wrong colour, customer maintained service etc.

Cupra goes back 8th June. Might have to buy a banger for a few weeks.
