Also... Has anyone heard if Toyota will retro upgrade Carplay/Auto when it rolls out in Europe? I understand that it's been agreed as a free upgrade in Australia which I thought was pretty decent. Im kinda hoping we'll get the same offer in the UK but nobody appears to know the official line??

You need to contact Toyota GB.

Anyone know where I can get decent oem mudflaps? 

Some Toyota dealers have their own ebay stores and there is also the Official Toyota Store on ebay

I ordered my 2019 RAV4 AWD in February and quoted May/June. 

Last week Toyota customer services said it was on a Vehicle Carrier ship heading for the UK with the port arrival as 23rd/24th May. The RAV4 I believe is manufactured in Nagoya in Japan, so looking at the shipping tracking sites there is a vehicle transport ship coming from Nagoya to Avonmouth, which is where Toyotas land in the UK, via Barcelona. The ship is the Altair Leader and is currently passing southern Spain heading to the Staights of Gibraltar.

Enter Altair Leader in the search box

Or

Once it arrives at the the UK port the cars go to the Toyota area and have any packages fitted that are installed at the port such as the Protection Pack, then transported to the dealers, by road I assume.

There is another vehicle carrier, DAEDALUS LEADER, coming from Nagoya, Japan due to dock at Avonmouth on the 25th May

Just got an e-mail from the dealer and delivery was pushed from September to October, apparently still waiting a build slot.

Vehicle carrier, Altair Leader on the horizon en route from Nagoya Toyota Plant in Japan to Avonmouth, off of Ilfracombe this afternoon.

ETA Avonmouth at 17:30 to 20:30 today. If you are due a delivery soon it’s probably on this boat although another vehicle carrier is due tomorrow in Avonmouth from Nagoya.

Photos from live webcam at Ilfracombe but mist at sea.

I happen to live nearby, and like to fly drones; so here are some fresh pictures. Cars are unloading as we speak.. Hopefully ours are here somewhere 🙂

seems this is quite a common problem with Toyota at the moment I ordered my corolla tourer in February and have had several delivery dates each one later than the last, now the car has arrived at the dealers and I have been told that corollas & camry's are being blocked from delivery & registration by Toyota but they do not know why, customer services always refer me back to the dealer who does not have the amswers

The Rav4 doesn't seem to be affected by this issue, as some members have had theirs, and in some cases earlier than the quoted delivery dates.

In the case of the Camry customer orders were available from 1st April, with the first customer deliveries from 1st July.

My car was unloaded from the ship at Portbury dock, Bristol on the 24th but it is still showing delivery to the dealer as 10th to 29th June. It seems to take longer to go through the port and deliver to the dealer than to ship from Japan to the UK. Looks like Toyota need to improve their UK port logistics!

there seems to be an issue with all cvt equipped vehicles, my corolla has still not been released from the dealers despite it sitting there with its registration plates on everyone is blaming each other (no straight answer) but I noticed that there is quite a stir going on in US & Australia with recalls for failure of cvt gearbox failure which the dealer denies knowing about

The issue doesn't relate to all CVT. In Australia it is only the 2.0 litre petrol Corolla with the Direct Shift CVT that is affected. See https://www.toyota.com.au/news/toyota-australia-recalls-corolla-vehicles-to-replace-cvt-assembly

& in the UK you can't buy an ICE/CVT auto Corolla as you can in the US (don't know about Oz) - the transmission in hybrid Toyotas available here isn't really a CVT in the normal sense but a planetary gear set.

Got an email from my dealer this morning, my Corolla TS was delivered this morning, pick it up tomorrow afternoon.  I would complain to the dealership manager!

On 22nd May Toyota GB informed dealers that they had placed a temporary hold on all deliveries/registrations of Corolla Hybrid & Camry the issue has been corrected and dealers notified this afternoon that the "hold" was no longer in place and deliveries/registrations could continue.

22/03/19 car ordered AWD Excel, white, beige interior, JBL-PVM option - delivery "about June".

06/04/19 car is "in build", estimated at the dealership around 27 June (with usual caveat that these dates are somewhat fluid).

05/06/19 car is in UK, estimating arrival at dealer on 24 June (fingers crossed it turns up sooner)

Well... it's finally here, and got 62 MPG on its maiden voyage of 7 miles, through the city, to work:
