Booth11 Posted January 6, 2021 Report Share Posted January 6, 2021 As a few people have and are now placing orders, and as is customary, seems the time is right to start an official mk8 R order thread! So people can share their spec and details of their new R orders. Nice to see who is ordering what, and also to welcome any new members venturing into R ownership with a mk8! Post up your order details in this thread! Colour, spec, date of order, dealership/broker, lease/PCP/outright purchase, location (UK or elsewhere), estimated delivery....etc etc and I’ll add them to the running order list below. Please feel free to chat too in this thread as you wish.

I’ve added the build stages for quick reference for those who need it, plus the link to the tracker at My VW UK. Link to tracker info https://www.volkswagen.co.uk/owners-and-drivers/my The tracker stages are as follows: Stage 1: processing order - as it sounds. Stage 2: with the factory - parts are being ordered and are awaiting supply dates Stage 3: BW confirmed - all parts are at factory and they've confirmed a date for build. Stage 4: Build in progress - as it sounds, although very often skipped on the tracker as actual build is only a couple of days. States is takes 4 weeks from start of build to delivery. Stage 5a: in transit:left the factory - on it's way to Emden. Stage 5b: in transit:shipping - at Emden waiting a boat. Normally received 48 hours after 5a. Stage 5c: in transit:nearly here - on boat to either Grimsby, Tyne or Sheerness depending on dealer location. At this stage VW can give you the name of the boat, but it sometimes skips this stage. Now states 10 days to dealer. Stage 6. Arrived in the UK - as stated, takes up to 10 days apparently, although they try and do it within 7. Stage 7. At dealer - just needs PDI and prep and is ready for you. Wrex, mRs.hendeRson, JaseW and 1 other 3 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
