Boys, Girls, Gentlemen and Gentlewomen !!   She’s officially here!   Turns out both seller and I got confused with the wheel color😂   I guess “nero, superfice lucida” (bl

I did think that, but then they’ve specifically mentioned 90% on the golf R 🤔

I think that's typical VW brochure contradiction as if you look at the options page it describes 65% being standard on R Line upwards. Looks like the only price rise was the increase in VED.

 

Re the glass, I think that all mk8's with the tinted glass is 90%. Knowing VW it will be a typo.

 

I've had a mk7 with 65%, (standard) 7.5 with 90% (specced) and 8 GTI (standard, but stated 65%) and there is no way its 65%. The 65% is alot lighter, almost has a greenish tint to it, 90% is the same as Audi's privacy glass. My car is currently parked next to a 7.5 with 65% and the difference is noticable.

 

Same with the new polo VW state its 65% but definatley alot darker.

She arrived last night - 2 days later than expected - due to a Covid shutdown at the dealers! I am certainly not complaining though, as I am lucky getting the car this early.

A couple of "wins" - the car was delivered on a trailer - the previous 2 have been driven up from the dealership, so arrived with just 5 miles on the clock 👍.

Also came with Eagle F1 Supersport tyres, which I gather are probably the best of the 3 tyres coming out of the factory?

And is everyone else getting ridiculously low insurance quotes?? 😵

Not sure when it’s coming yet it’s not even on the tracker yet , but told around July . Yes I can’t see the point in trying 

to save a couple of £100 on road tax . Spec it up and go and enjoy it I say

Congrats! Enjoy getting to know her @Fruitloop. My insurancequotes also been fairly low. The insurers obviously haven't watched the carwow vids 🥳

Awesome!!! Party Time!!! haha

 

Yes to the quotes..... Mine are coming out at around £250 less than my 7.5 R so around the £350 mark....... Just hope that the insurers dont suddenly whack it up when the system realises what these cars are capable of or if there is a increase in Golf R thefts for the mk 8 over the previous R's.... Bit of a bummer that I am only 15 miles away from Wolverhampton and 20 odd miles away from Birmingham.

Finally, it's arrived in the UK! That was a 4 week voyage 😳. How long did others have to wait from arriving in UK to collection | delivery?

More good news!   
 

Mine took 2 days from docks to dealership and then I collected it a few days after that.
