    Mk7 Golf R Order thread - part 2

    Have just ordered a BMW M140i Shadow Edition in mineral grey with Dakota leather/blue stitching, black high gloss trim, professional nav, adaptive susp, folding mirrors, heated seats, adaptive LED headlights, front PDC and Apple CarPlay - £31k (BMW preferential rate) April delivery 😃

    Mk7 Golf R Order thread - part 2

    I've no idea Mike to be honest...........I'll wait a couple of months and let the dust settle and see how things pan out.......there's nothing really comparable to the R for the same money, spec, build quality etc and I never thought I would say it but I really miss DSG (driving the wife's manual Mini at the mo as I sold my Mk7 GTD last July) - A35 is the only logical alternative but costs more and is cramped in the rear....although may change my mind if I get to test drive one or when Matt aka never seen a stop light tells us how good it is....

    Meant to say that dealer had it confirmed by VW that spec upgrade is for vehicles built from week 51

    Mk7 Golf R Order thread - part 2

    was told not to expect it until April, that’s an 11 month wait for me and that it was also going to be one of the banked vehicles. For more than half of the wait it will have been in storage/transit which is my primary concern and then..........😤..............I also dipped out on the recent spec upgrade (I know there is a price increase to consider and yes they were chosen options) cannot fault dealer in anyway, service has been exceptional but at this moment this is how I feel towards VW 🖕

    New standard options

    Have just read this over on golfgtiforum so mess is an understatement and being exceptionally polite http://www.golfgtiforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=284513.0 Its an absolute cluster..... !!!!! Is there anyway a dealer can call up a list of all fitted equipment, standard and optional, to recently built cars??

    PCP is 3.6% APR for GTi n.b. VW's finance contribution is now £500 less

    QQ - when did you place your order?

    New standard options

    It was posted on here that standard-spec changes were effective as of build week 51/17 Dec..... Over on the GolfGTi forum someone has updated that their dealer informed them that they were effective as of build week 47/26 Nov. Fantastic news considering my car was built week 46! I know there are a few others on here whose cars are also week 46 builds...... So that's a potential 10 month wait from order date until delivery which is constantly subject to change, 5 months of which it will have been in external storage somewhere and/or in transit, I have to wait until cars built later than mine are delivered first, my spec is instantly at a disadvantage ( I know there is a price increase)..........if this is confirmed I think its the final nail in the coffin.

    WLTP pushed back again

    If this latest update is correct then mine is/will be a 10 month wait, nearly half of which my car will have been sat at Berlin airport or god knows where. To top it off there appears to be a spec change recently. I’m trying to stay positive but I’m losing faith.........in fact I’ve lost it. l’ve read over on golfgtiforum that people are now taking delivery of their GTi PP’s......... About to call the dealer and if this further delay is confirmed I'm cancelling my order and will order a GTi PP instead. At this rate I will probably take delivery of the GTi before the R and my OCD will be somewhat assuaged knowing it hasn’t been sitting in puddles with herr taube crapping all over it.

    Apologies if this has been asked previously but the rationale for VW’s WLTP woes is the number of options and how they package these......so are they testing cars with various fitted options? Would RHD cars have to be tested separately? If that’s the case could customer cars be used for these tests?
