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?!

 

Interesting they are not accepting orders...

How many of you guys are managing to keep your orders under 40K?


mine is a lease but the extra tax is passed on so I had to keep mine under £40k to keep on budget.... so I went blue and 19” wheels... but lost winter pack to keep it under the magic £40k. Having a warm bump was going to cost me a huge amount over 4 years. Just not worth it

Im from Sweden too and will order the car tomorow!

how did you add the Electric heater from DEFA?

Did you choose DCC? Asked at VW and they couldn't really describe it LOL.

How long does it take to get it?

 Hello , Hej! ;)

 

You have to order the DEFA at the dealer!.

Yes got the DCC, if you tested it you never go back...it is awesome ;)

 

Hope week 12..

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??

 

 In six month the Estate will come! ;)

Congrates! :)

 

But you can still put Dcc on the car! ;), think is the best and Cheapest option you can get on the R. The car can be like a old soft Volvo, to a hardcore Maclaren in ride :)

you have to pay an extra £325 per year road tax. as a minimum the extras i wanted pushed it over 40 so added more on that i wanted after that 😄

 Strange Tax?!, just on the price on the car , nothing with the CO2? :)

yes its also based on co2., so the first year is around £900GBP, and the second year is based on CO2 PLUS an extra £325 of whatever that figure is if the car is over £40k. This extra is for the first 5 years.
