Order has been accepted by the factory, but all GTI orders are apparently on hold and being upgraded to 2014 specifications from week 22.

Heck that means they won't start building them until w/c May 27th. Add on another month for build, shipping, delivery and PDI's and I reckon the first ones on the road will be around the end of June!

What exactly are the 2014 spec upgrades?

Mine is processing now and per above I guess it will stay that way until the middle of May when, like the rest of us, it "should" be given a build date of week 22 (which is last week of May??) Don't know about everyone else but that is too far away for my liking!  :laugh:

This is in line with what I've been told. It means demos will be in the dealerships for end of June, then deliveries for cars with standard spec coming mid to end of July, and those orders with factory options coming end of July/mid August.  Nowt any of us can do about this, however when VW say "on sale from June" this is completely misleading & incorrect.

I don't know what the entire 2014 spec upgrades are, but it includes the heated windscreen option that needs to be ordered along with the new (optional!) advanced telephone prep.  I suspect this is needed to cradle the phone and boost antenna performance.

Apparently the heated windscreen is a clear film laminated between the glass, rather than thin wires like on Fords.

The phone prep probably has SMS functionality too which would be kinda cool.
