    If people have their order numbers and batch numbers you can use this site to keep track of your orders.
    https://webapps.toyota.com.au/apps/cwt/disclaimer.do

    Username is order number (similar to 9640xxx)
    Password is batch/stock number (similar to 9739xxx)

    It used to say "more info coming in November" but now has more updated info, mine still says unknown production date . Although my dealer has said December production in the past.

      Be nice to get an eta on delivery though. Maybe next week we'll hear something.

      I've not heard a thing other than a call from a very excitable dudebro the day after I pulled the trigger.

      .... because every driver experiences the destructive potential of the effortless surge of power available through the smallest of body movements.

        From what I'm seeing on the FB page the people who go out of their way to contact the dealer (and regularly) get way more info. Just give the dude a call and ask whats going on. In reality, most decent size dealers will get a demo next week or the week after. Also, although we haven't actually been told, I believe all buyers (in the first 1000) are allocated a build so timelines are kind of known, but these could obviously push out.

                    My motor dealer mate is getting one next week too. He ordered his on the Thursday night after the Wednesday pre release day. Seems to be who you know with a lot of these types of things.

                      Yep, the dealer guy I've been speaking to all year did tell me if I ordered directly with him the weekend before the pre-sale that he could have pushed my order along and made sure I was at the front of the list. Cause I did it on the site and I didn't get my order in within the first few mins I'm a bit further down the line. Definitely who you know.
                      Ahh well.

                          Yes, I went through the dealer and not online, hopefully you get some info on yours soon!

                                Lucky guys, glad some people from here are getting their cars.
                                NZ review, not a full road test, but not bad. https://www.driven.co.nz/reviews/toy...ot-hatch-king/
                                And this from Autocar UK but copied from somewhere else, I can’t find the source of it. Sounds super promising.

                                "Remember those stories that used to fly around the benches of the sixth form common room in whispered tones, told simply for the sake of the telling? Gossip and tittle-tattle usually, but occasionally something that seemed momentous at the time – and always told in that “I can’t tell you who I’m talking about or how I know this, but I’ve simply got to tell somebody type of way. Well, I’m dying to tell you one about a car.

                                It’s just provided what might have been the most amazing drive I’ve had in anything all year. But this isn’t a review. I’ve absolutely no intention of revealing exactly which car I’m talking about, I’m afraid. I’m very much hoping, in fact, that when I’m finished here, the closest you’ll be able to come to knowing exactly what I’ve been frothing on about is via an educated, balance-of-probability guess. Not that I’m really even inviting guesses, either. If you email me a correct one, I’m bound not to tell you that you’re right anyway. Sorry.

                                But wow, what a car. It’s one of a breed that feels rather like it’s been in hibernation for a decade or so and that I wasn’t sure would ever really return at all. And yet, here it is. It is also a supremely, deliciously unlikely sort of fast car – because of what it is, what it’s like to drive and who has made it.

                                It’s really fast and incredibly eye-opening to drive but also temptingly affordable. It’s the kind of car that seems purpose-built for racking up improbable point-to-point average speeds that exceed what you imagined might be its true potential by at least double. To be bluntly honest, it’s the kind of car we used to call a ‘licence-loser’, back when it was a little bit more acceptable to joke about these things. But you could park it in broad daylight next to entirely ordinary cars and the vast majority of people wouldn’t look at it twice. “Oh, it’s only an ‘x’,” people will say. If only they knew.

                                I’ve just spent a couple of days driving this car on UK A- and B-roads that it suited joyously well. We’ve reached the point now when even some of our new and allegedly compact performance cars can feel, at times, like they’ve become uncomfortably large between the hedges and the white lines. We know this – we write about it frequently – and no amount of handling precision or body control can really make up for it.

                                Well, praise be, this new car really isn’t like that. And as well as being one of the best-sized enthusiast cars I’ve driven in recent times, it’s scandalously sure-footed and has dynamic tuning that seems quite brilliantly judged for devouring cross-country miles at pace. It isn’t over-sprung or over-responsive; it doesn’t feel like a track-day fugitive, because there’s a good dose of pragmatism and progressiveness about its body control; and it has handling manners that allow it to just keep getting better the faster you go.

                                I can quite appreciate that the car I’m describing may not sound very ‘now’. It was always a risk to make performance cars like this, so plainly and absolutely dedicated to the thrill of speed sampled out in the wild on the public road. There really aren’t many places left where cars like that can be enjoyed at anything like their full potential. Twenty-five years ago, when the likes of the Subaru Impreza and Mitsubishi Lancer Evo were doing their thing and the Lancia Delta Integrale, Audi Quattro and Ford Escort Cosworth hadn’t long finished doing something similar, nobody had even thought that mandatory electronic speed limiters might one day be a thing. These days, the climate in which fast cars exist has changed so much.

                                And yet there is still a time and a place for lightning to strike, it would seem. The improbably quick, alluringly inexpensive, slightly geeky and cultish, A-to-B-in-a-heartbeat-and-in-any-weather performance car is back – and I can’t wait to tell you more about it.
