Has anyone who has ordered a GTI got a build week yet?  Thanks.

Not a confirmed build week, no.  Was told it could be 3 - 4 weeks before I hear anything concrete like that.  Starting to get impatient already, might have to buy a used Mk6 in the meantime just to ease the pain! Haha! ;)

I placed an order just over two weeks ago but have yet to receive a build date. Phoned the dealer up yesterday to check, but all he could confirm was that the order was being "processed" & he would let me know as soon as he gets any further information.

It's being touted on here that it could be weeks 22/23 but I have yet to receive official confirmation on my order.

Not sure if people are aware, but you can put your order number into here and it will let you know as it gets to key stages:

A dealer may be able to give more detail once it is being built, but not a lot you can do really other than sit back and wait!  Weighing a pig doesn't make it any fatter, but we all keep weighing our pigs!  :grin:

Previous history has told me that I usually get to hear about a build week 3 to 4 weeks after ordering and that build week is usually 6-7 weeks after. Don't know currently whether VW are overly busy or not compared to last time I ordered.
Whey ya bugger! It's finally arrived after an 8 month wait....

Hi there,

New member and soon to be new gti owner!
Ordered this morning and can't wait. 
Owned a polo gti 1.4 tsi before my current car so had a taster of the gti but I can imagine it pales in comparison to the golf.

Anyone having trouble with the VW order tracking? My order number was showing up nicely last night but today it doesn't recognise the number :-s Bit concerned!
