<people can add as they've ordered>


That was what this thread was originally supposed to be - see title and the opening post.  😂  I didn’t go as far as stating no spam or other chat as people invariably ignore that anyway!  I knew it was too optimistic though to hope it might actually stay as a list thread, and I’ll hold my hands up in its failure as much as anyone.  

 

Thing is you either really need one single record that gets added to and updated otherwise other posts get lost amongst other chat (this thread being a case in point) but that relies on one person updating it as editing rights won’t be open to all.  I nearly suggested it a few days back but reckoned I’d be the one lumped with maintaining it. 😂

 

Or start another thread for order details only can be started with absolutely NO SPAM, so just running posts with order details (as this one was intended). 
 

I think maybe the thing to do is to keep this thread live but I will amend the opening post to be a running list of who has ordered.  Later on today I’ll trawl through to dig out the details of who has ordered and pop names, details etc up in that first post and then keep it updated (as best I can) as and when people post up to say they’ve ordered.  Then general order chat can continue.  
 

Unless someone has a better idea?

Ok, first post in thread now includes a running list of orders.  If anyone wants me to add any missing info into their entry or amend inaccurate info, just let me know.  If I’ve missed your order, let me know. 
 

Please continue to add your new 8R orders to this thread and as you do, I’ll add them to the running list in the first post.

Feeling quite jealous about all the new orders going in! 😥

 

I'm a Wagon man at heart though so fear I'd partially regret rushing in to order now.  Do we know if there will be an 8R Estate, and when??

Consensus is that there will be an estate but nobody knows when.  I would like one in reflex silver with all the software issues sorted, so maybe a facelift model in 2/3 years 😉.

Hi guys,

 

I've just joined as I placed my order last night, just waiting for approval.

 

I currently have a Leon Cupra which I've had for just under 2 years due to go back in April. I spoke to the leasing company who've given me a good deal and allowing me to keep the Cupra till the Golf turns up.

 

I've gone for standard spec in white, May delivery with 12+23 at £270 a month :)

just had a call from the dealer, with the good news that the apr has gone down so a little saving on my monthlies - always nice!

 

he also said that they have been told by VW that they are not accepting any more orders for the R at present - he tried to put one through this morning and had problems and this is what he was told?!

I would suggest getting the DCC since the car might be a bit too stiff for comfortable daily use on bad roads. Especially if you're running 19" wheels.

Welcome along David!   I’ve added your order details to the list in the first post.  That’s good news you get to hang in to your Cupra till the R arrives, hope you’re looking forward to it!
