    Mk7 Golf R Order thread - part 2

    I got told today VW have not updated their information since i posted the production spreadsheet before Christmas showing banked cars released end of this month for delivery end of Feb.
  2. Exactly these engines are not being run out before the mk8 they have just been put into two brand new VW group cars in the Audi SQ2 and the Cupra ateca.

    New Golf R on Order

    After waiting for the time you have already, you just need to wait a matter of weeks now maybe 6-8 and it will be with you and you can use all the mods you have already bought. I ordered in June but think it would be crazy now after all the time i have put in waiting to then cancel when its so close now.

    Yeah this was from my dealer. He sent this in November i think. Yeah its weird they call all of them the 310 under Engine column but in the commercial description there is a mix. I am sure it must be a mistake that its shows 310's being built now.
  6. Nope i am pretty sure there wont be any 310bhp cars coming through, as i dont think they are allowed to sell them new now.

    Finally its passed!! It didnt take long 😏 According to the below banked cars still have a 3 week wait till they are released. Hopefully they can get them moving quicker than that, but for most i am sure it doesn't matter too much now as if they come earlier people will wait till March anyway.
  8. Just noticed it only has one set of exhaust flaps not two like the old one. So only one side is active? My mistake looks like still has two just only showing the one Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. To think I nearly bought one before it arrived. Thank god I didn’t. Interesting that the golf won’t have one and the s3 does. Maybe VW realise golf r owners are more into the experience than s3 buyers? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. Thats interesting as the S3 i think still has it. As clarky said this will save me some cash if it doesnt have it
  11. If you want to know what its going to sound like there are plenty of videos on youtube of the cupra ateca which has the same engine and exhaust config as its a post WLTP car. It does have very faint DSG farts
  12. To be honest I think there is a lot of over reaction on the thread right now. The changes are really not that drastic. And I know I would kick myself if I cancelled bought a nearly new second hand one not to the exact spec I wanted and at an over inflated price. I looked a few times during these delays and not one car that was up to a year old could be bought at a better price than I am getting new.

  14. Pretty sure its the bottom one seeing what a guy on an Audi forum posted up showing his brand new S3 with GPF
