Got the call today! Collecting my Black SZ4 on Friday morning. Count myself beyond lucky as I only ordered in January and had an expected delivery date of 29th March (which in itself was good compared to some!). For reference to those waiting, as mentioned previously, I managed to secure this one as a pre-built car that was waiting shipping, wasn't fussy on spec, rang seven dealers and this was the best one for me as it was already built so was unlikely to have big wait. It's my dealers first allocation of cars that were due in January and mine is likely to be the first one sold. They have a list of 10 people waiting with next cars due in April but have no idea on spec and are going to offer them to their waiting list.

Congrats, must feel great.

They reckon i'm now 6th on the list, and each person wanting different colours! I find that hard to believe myself. Black, silver, blue, beige, yellow, white...... Errmmm sounds iffy. But i live in hope.

Enjoy!

If that's true then you could be elevated to first instantly depending on the colour that turns up!

Gosh i hope so!

Baffled as to the 6-8 month statement from his colleague though, perhaps he's playing extra cautious ;-) Makes me wonder if they have any clue what there talking about. hahhaha

Interesting thought process. Not sure if it suits Suzuki but it certainly suits me. Shortage of supply, rarity and reliability mixed with well tested components. Fantastic news for those of us who have bought theirs and have an interest in healthy residual values. I don't especially want to see a glut of these on the market and the old model was very much a niche product with a core following.

On the other hand - maybe my old 2019 model on a '68' plate is shortly going to be such a public embarrassment on the driveway outside my residence. As my neighbours take delivery of their new '19' plate cars, will they will look at me with disdain, class me as an underachiever and question whether "times are hard" if I drive an old car..

Maybe it's time to try and join the queue for a new '19' plate Jimny and see if I can off-load the old '68' plate one?

Sat in a blue one today. I was surprised at how high the dash seems. Very reminiscent of my SJ413. He told me he was not allowed to sell it for a year. He said three were due to arrive this year and he tried explaining about the take it or leave it random nature of the deliveries but I lost him along the way.
I guess I'll put my interest in one on the back burner for 12 months.

Must be me but I notice how there is, in nearly all cars, a lot of headroom - some are really bad - and that wasted space could be put to good use with a higher seat!

I can't speak for the new Jimny but generally it is possible - there is a lot about this on the forum. I found searching hard though I dug this out.

Just been told (by my father who went to my dealer because he's clearly more excited than me), that I can expect my white SZ5 to be ready for collection in 7-10 days. Just in time for the new 19 plates :P

I had a good news email this morning, I'm picking mine up this coming Friday 1st March. Having been keen since the first spy shots middle of last year the wait will finally be over.

I'm not so fussed about the new reg plate per se, but the 1st March is a significant birth date for me w.r.t. someone who is sadly no longer with us so I like to think there's a little bit of that person involved :)
