Saw this article by Autocar today and wondered if any one here had experienced any delays with getting new parts?

JLR decision to move from 19 parts warehouses to one Super Hub where they will supply their entire world distribution network with parts is a massive change. Along with outsourcing the entire contract to Unipart, integrating all of their systems and the requirement to recruit around 1000 people. Not a job for the faint hearted, bit like Lotus developing and building a new car with ramped up volumes and a complete new workforce. Just “perfect storms”. Hopefully they will get on top of it (and they will) soon.

Took mine in for a quick warranty job.
While chatting to the lady behind the desk, she said I was lucky that they have the part and they were buying parts off ebay to keep customers on the road!
