    Mk7 Golf R Order thread - part 2

    Darren, this is my view on the insurance issue. If you look at the VW bulletin from Thursday it states that they are working with the Association of British Insurers, I think at present our 300PS cars are not on their system, once the registrations are sorted so should the insurance issue, also our Golfs have the Car-Net Security & Service installed so this my reflect on the premiums ? As I stated this is only my opinion, so it'll be interesting once our cars are fully registered to see if the insurance companies recognise the new model ?

    Just had a call from my dealer saying the official CO2 figures for the "R" have just been released by VW, hopefully winging their way to the DVLA !!

    I've had the same conversation with my dealer today, I can't get my car until mid March as the CO2 figures have not been released to the DVLA, so the car can't be taxed. Will have to wait & see if it's resolved earlier ?

    On Monday my car was all set to be registered & delivered on the 1st March, got a call from my dealer late yesterday to be told there's a hold up with my car & that it may not be delivered until mid March now, but VW UK were implying that the DVLA were not processing the WLTP codes fast enough ? Not sure if it's to do with all the options, I'll just have to wait & see. It'll be interesting to see what your sales team have to say ? My Car: Ordered 21st June. Built 12th November. Arrived in UK 1st February.

    Ok, the City of Amsterdam docked at Grimsby this afternoon & the City of Rotterdam will dock at Grimsby early tomorrow morning. Just keep an eye on the app, as I said earlier I didn't receive a text today the app updated it's self to stage 6, my car came into Grimsby yesterday.

    This is the number 0800 333 666 then option 9. they don't open again until 08:30 on Monday. Did you go to 5c today or yesterday as the app is 24 hours behind. Your dealer can only tell you which port it's going to but customer services have all the details, ship etc. The port seems to be determined by which dealer you are using ?

    Have you checked the app today, I didn't receive a text today but the app has changed to Stage 6 (in the UK) your better off phoning VW customer services with your order number, I did this yesterday & they told me name of ship & port of entry etc.

    The Malacca Highway is due into Sheerness approx. 13:00 today from Emden, it holds between 1800 - 2000 cars. the rest of the ships have been going to Grimsby or Tyne from Emden in the last few days.

    Has the same message today that it's in transit, but is there a way of finding out which ship it's on & destination port ?
