Golf mk7 / Re: New car order delays
« Last post by watchdog on Today at 16:39 »
Hey guys, I've been following this thread for a couple of days - I ordered my GTI PP here in Poland on 12th of September and got a confirmation of production in 45th week (starting 5th of November). Seems like everything is up and running again and they delay seems to be over.


Hopefully.  I have a build week confirmed as week 44 and confirmation that WLTP certification will be in place by the first week December 2018 which is when i expect release of the car to the dealer.

New all weathers are generally labelled with the snowflake symbol for the reason that otherwise a lot of countries (including Germany) do not accept them as winter tyres; i.e. if there is frost and/or snow.

Personally I'd go for separate summers and winters; my preferred choice of winter tyres were the Nokian WR A4. They offer better wet grip than most winter tyres, so a good choice in Britain.

If anyone's interested I've got a set of 16" winters for sale (set of 5 wheels and tyres).

Golf mk7 / Re: Buying on PCP
« Last post by david25 on Today at 10:12 »
It sounds like you have enough money now and incoming that PCP might not really be for you. Why not use the deposit to buy outright with a bank loan with lower APR to cover the difference? When your windfall comes your way you can then pay off the bank loan right away with no penalties.

Also think carefully if that new car smell is worth the extra cash. Depending on what you're coming from, a nearly new from a dealer would save you a fair amount of money for very little difference in car. From my experience buying a 16 plate GTI PP this year, the whole thing felt exactly the same (actually, better) as when I bought a new TDI 4 years ago - but with far less waiting around.

I found my current car using the following approach, look for anything old but with low mileage. So, after being patient I found a five year old mark6 GTI with 16,000 miles for £14,000 at a VW dealer.

Condition was acceptable for me, basically new and running costs over the past two years have been

Servicing = £0 via two years free servicing from VW
MOT = £0 same
Warranty = £0 same

Getting the previous generation is probably too old for 95% of people but works for me.

Thanks all of you for the latest helpful comments.
All things considered, it doesn't look as though I will take too much of a battering at the pumps if I decide to make the change.  :smiley:

Exonian:

For the new one, I gave my deposit over yesterday and the dealership tried to place the order with VW UK. Apparently order books will be open again at the end of this month (WLTP cerification completion then, i'm assuming).

VW aren't giving any deposit contributions for the GTI/GTI+ but are for other Polos, so current broker offerings are topping out at 12.5% off list. VW seem confident for residuals as GFV is 50% at 3 years.

Wait times for some are ridiculous, There are people on the Polo forum that ordered a GTI/+ in Feb and still don't have a build date, but are expected to built end of Nov when WLTP compliance is ironed out. Then it takes 4-5 weeks shipping from South Africa (time enough for the  paint to cure!), time between UK port and dealership - they'll have waited a year. I got mine (1st and current) in Aug from unallocated stock the dealership had ordeeed (or perhaps a cancelled order?) after putting down a deposit on it in May - 2 weeks before it was built.

For this new one I just requested, being quoted fir about 25-30 weeks. Maybe I can jump on a cancelled order if someone pulls the plug on theirs and get it quicker, but I don't want it before March 1st on 19 plate.
