    No Golf R on VW Website

    I had a bit of an email chat with my dealer yesterday and he believes that VW are just updating their website and to ignor the conspiracy theory as there is a lot of life left in the 7.5 R

    New Golf R on Order

    He Dan I have confirmed week 5 build (4th Feb) my only issue (if it is one) is that the dealer can’t confirm if I will have the new standard equipment or not. If it comes as I’ve ordered it I’ll b chuffed, but if it gets the other bits and bobs I’ll be very happy.

    New Golf R on Order

    I messaged my dealer yesterday and he is waiting on confirmation that my car will be built to the new spec and that my extras (headlight assist and keyless) will be taken off my options and reduce the cost of my purchase. Either way not long until build week 5!
  5. Thanks for the reply. I mainly travel A and B roads with the odd motorway every now and again so I don’t expect great MPG figures but just interested to hear what the R is like. 😀
  6. Are most R owners seeing 30ish MPG? The reason I ask is I have one on order and that’s the sort of MPG I’m expecting. My current GTD only manages mid 40’s with 30k on the clock, whereas my last one would do mid 50’s with 12k.

    I emailed my dealer regarding a reduction in price for the now standard options and was told he didn’t think they would reduce the price, but he would do his best for me!

    10th December Dan. I have a build week of the 4th Feb at the moment but a I’m sure you’re picking up, this may change. I’m not overly bothered when mind arrives to be fair just a bit gutted that it’s 10hp down but I’m old that you wouldn’t notice the difference. Time will tell.

    Welcome Dan, I’ve ordered an Atlantic blue as well. Hopefully be with me in March 🤞

    My last two GTDs were still ‘on the boat’ when I collected them so don’t take too much notice of the tracker I thinks it’s only a guide.

    Bit of an update, week 5 build and will include the upgraded LED lights with lane assist now as standard. Managed to add climate screen to the order, just getting impatient now! my wife has thrown a curve ball in that she wants me to change the colour to Indium Grey rather than Atlantic Blue. My current GTD is night blue which I really like, but did see a grey and now I’m undecided!!!

    Spoke to my dealer and they confirm that the interest rate will be reduced but didn’t confirm by how much.

    I've had an update to say that my car is build week commencing the 4th Feb and they confirm that it is the MY19 300ps. I've added keyless to mine (along with a couple of other bits) but will I now get all the other positives (camera, lane assist etc) but lose the frameless mirror? I'm hoping for a early March delivery but an i just a dreamer?

    Thanks for the reply Blower. I’ll see how much that is and maybe see if I can add it at this stage. Yes the high beam assist. A mate had it on his E class Merc and I thought it was well worth it, hence adding it.

    Thanks for the info on the headlights. I do live in a rural location (Welsh borders) and there’s not many street lights about around here. Climate screen? Is that the one which has the little wires to defrost quicker? Getting really excited now. It’s with the factory so hopefully the build date will come up in January!
