I noticed new style rear led lights, the analogue clock has has been replaced with a digital one and a fresh set of alloys, there was probably more but I did watch it at 2am this morning so maybe didn't take as much notice as I should have

Yeah, from that German forum it doesn’t look like anyone is very impressed.

I actually thought there's no more clock. Replaced with a hazard light button and the word PASSAT. Some new styling of the front fog lights as well.

New steering wheel, at least for the R-line. Virtual cockpit changed to the same as the Polo, and seems like some changes to the discover head unit. USB Type C placement is in the corner of the gear shift plate, so not entirely slick, and it's exposed.

Overall feels more like a model year change than facelift....

Who do I believe? Online tracker says build week 9 confirmed, Dealer says week 8 confirmed.

I’d go with the dealer. Mine was built the week before the tracker said it would.
It also only took two weeks from leaving the factory to arriving at the dealer, so if everything goes according to plan, I’ll have my car on my driveway a week tomorrow, though I won’t be able to drive it until 1st March.

That’s good. Mine is build week 25/02 so shld arrive in UK before we leave EU. Don’t want any extra tariffs !
A little disappointed to miss out on facelift but the current B8 is a good motor.

Yay. I now have my car!
Unfortunately I’m not allowed to drive it until next Friday when the new registration kicks in, but I can sit in it and play. Happy boy 😀

How long did it take between confirmed build week and you getting it?

It got built a week earlier than the tracker said, and was with the dealer less than 3 weeks after leaving the factory

On the tracker mine is still showing confirmed build week commencing 25/02. Email from dealer today said car was built and on its way to the port, expected at dealers in about 2 weeks.
So much for online info from VW

Is your new car a 2018 or the revised 2019 model?

It’s MY19. Face lift version doesn’t come out until the summer. Assume that will be MY20

My Passat Estate has been sitting as "Your order is with the factory" on the tracker from about 2 days after I ordered it near the end of Jan this year. Be interested to see when it receives a build week designation and if it actually turns out correct. I am hoping the wait has gone down a bit from some of the orders placed last year and reported on here. Was told about 4 months by dealer.

Been hovering in background on this forum re tracking app. Ordered car 4th Jan and showed order with factory for weeks, last week updated to build week confirmed but no date given. Today updated to car built and has left factory.

Dealer also rung to confirm en route to UK so may arrive earlier than expected. original delivery date was estimated as 7th April

Still waiting!!! Ordered on 24th August 2018 and is apparently "In Transit". VW say that it is normally 4 weeks from in transit to being at the dealers.
Maybe the long wait time is due to the extras that I ordered - car is a GT estate 1.5evo dsg with heated w/screen, steering wheel and electric boot . But still, 7 months is a long time to wait.
