  1. Thanks clarky. I think I need a new iOS week / month app on my iPhone. It's telling me Week 51 starts 10/12/18, I should know better than to trust a free app. Shame as mine was supposed to be Week 47 but I've no confirmation of that. Hoping for a reasonably early March delivery.
  2. Hi Blower, thanks for the info. By post November do you mean December builds? If so then first week in December is Week 49 but Clarky is saying new spec is from Week 51. I do hope this doesn't come over as picky but I'm just trying to get my geriatric head around what's going on.

    What's the problem with VW UK not having the R on the website. Both the German and Belgian sites have the R on there so, UK owners being kept in the dark again.

    From VW site before they took it down. Sorry it's in three bits but it seems you can't attach Word files.

    Leasing Options are advertising “pipeline stock” which I assume means they have a block order in and just awaiting delivery. Might be worth a call Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hi Struan You're about 300 miles closer to Ayr than I am. I was told that there is an allowance of around 200 miles given for delivery before your contracted mileage starts , I'm 450 miles from Ayr so I suppose that would wipe out a fair chunk of my mileage . I would be quite prepared to pay for trailer delivery to be honest, rather than having the new car driven by someone who couldn't care less about it.

    I’ll be pleased if the seats are black but the new spec sheet on VW before they took it down again listed gray panels Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Neva, and you? I had visions of a spotty youth thrashing the nuts off the car for 450 miles from Ayr but they assured me that it’s a trailer delivery due to the mileage. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    It is indeed ! Have you had any updates from them? Doesn’t help that my contact at the leasing company left between Xmas and New Year Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thanks clarky Going through a leasing company seems to add to the confusion. Mind you it doesn’t help that the dealer is in Scotland and I’m in Hampshire Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Was this from customer service or your dealer? If it’s your dealer then he’s really on the ball compared to mine / leasing co Good news at last Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
