That may be pushing it a bit, it can take about 4 weeks from build to delivery, but thatdepends on how long it has to wait to get on the boat it has been known for cars to sit on the docks for a week or two.

Hope yours has a first class ticket and gets to you soon

Mine was scheduled to be built in the 2nd week of October 2012 and I picked it up at the end of October. I would suspect that you'd be picking it up after 1st March but check as garages have been known to want to shift cars before month end so insist on a post February delivery to ensure you get the new registration.

mine will be about 13-14 weeks

That's why I went for a 3 month oldex-demo model. From being first interested in the Yeti I had to wait over 12 months before I could afford it and then with the money burning a hole in my pocket the thought of waiting another 3 or 4 months was to much to bear!



Is your user name M Zero BMN? if so, I'm G0FCZ

Hi Lee
Yes your right its my callsign , i have a nice ft-7900 that i hope to fit into the yeti when it gets here, in the past i have used a through the glass type antenna and hope to use that with this setup, i will remote mount the body in the boot near the 12v outlet and see if that can supply the current for the rig, on paper it will but sometimes the 12 sockets are a low on power.
anyway that will give me something to play with when it arrives, (only 2 weeks to go i hope!)

My Yeti was week one 2012 build, and was at the dealers in Mansfield on Jan 13th. It may have been quicker due to people wanting to delay unitl March but as I intend to keep mine I was not bothered.The total time from order to possesion was five months.

If i get a 2.000 cc car in Greece I will not have money to pay the taxes and the gasoline even if i work 24 hours per day!!!

In Greece if you have a 2.000 cc car they saying that you are rich and you have to pay 1.100 euro per year for taxes, even more you have to pay 1000 euro for insurance and the goverment says that if you have a 2.000 cc car you must have at least income of 12.000 euro to have it! If you dont have this income you pay 1.000 euro extra!
Imagine that the average income is 15.000 euro so you have to pay almost 3.000 euro per year even if you dont move it!!

So everyone that has 2.000 cc car and more gave back the license plates and they dont have the right to move it!! OR they forced to sell it for half of the price market!!
Imagine a Honda CR-V of a friend 2009 model elegance with 2.000cc engine and automatic gearbox cost 38.000 euro and now they take it only for 7.000 euro!
