Golf mk8 R order thread - post your order details!


Recommended Posts

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.  
 

EDIT:  This is now the running of list of 8R orders to date....

................................................


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.

And here she is! What a beast! She come with Hankooks (no PP) literally in love! 

Collected earlier on this afternoon.   Top drawer service from VW Stockport I have to say! There were a few people actually waiting for it to be driven out and a couple came over to tell me

😉

Order form in for poverty spec R:
 
White

Leased via VW direct at Stockport
 
 

What lead time are you expecting as I understand the factory is closed so likely to be into April I would imagine?

I see you get heated steering wheel as standard which is nice but shame it doesn’t include heated/climate windscreen.

I got told 10-12 weeks which suits to be honest. 
 

Didn’t even know about the steering wheel 🙌🏻

@Northern Monkey  Is that a UK order?  
 

It’ll be interesting to gauge the early UK lead in/delivery times as more people place orders and post up details in here.  Not enough info atm, and but if delivery times are going to be months as is the norm then I’ll be putting in order sooner rather than later.  With my 7R I ordered it in Jan and it arrived end Sept.

I’ve been a bit rash.

After “deciding” I was going to keep my R long term, I’ve just got on the bandwagon with this leasing game...

Will be selling my mk7.5 to take advantage of my low mileage and good used prices currently in anticipation of my mk8 arrival

Still waiting for confirmation but have ordered:

Black
Pano roof
Winter pack.

Not the rs3 I wanted, nor is it any of the other options for cars I had been considering, but January blues struck and I’ve taken the plunge to give myself something to look forward to.

Only a 2 year deal so can look into something a bit different after this lease when Covid is hopefully in our review view mirror and pricing / demand / supply has reset itself a bit better.

Yes its a UK order, when i first ordered (19th dec) they said end of March, then a phone call a week later to say their build slot shows July!


Thanks.  Estimated/unconfirmed build weeks can jump about a lot unfortunately.  Perhaps when a few more orders go in there’ll be a better idea of a baseline for delivery times.

That is strange!, did order mine 23 dec and have a slot Week 8.. But that is a left hand drive car. Is the problem that you will have a Right hand drive?-
