I've updated my entry on the Spec thread. If everyone does that with the build week we've all been told then we can compare order date with build week.

    Model:GTD
    VW UK input acknowledgement date: 30 March 2013
    Estimated build week: Week 22-24
    Confirmed build week: Who knows?
    Order 2317, first GTI/GTD order from Pulman Sunderland
    Options: None
    Colour: Tornado Red
    Changes to original order: DBP paint change to TR - shouldn't have an impact on build time.

I think I have a fair chance of being one of the earliest recipients - basic spec, common colour and first   order placed with my dealer.

OOPS! Wrong place to put it.  :embarrassed:

I've updated mine and the original post by mr GTD for future reference, i don't think you need to add the acknowledgement date cos not everyone will know that only the people that have asked for it.

Jimble: I think order acknowledgement date is highly important. Your car hasn't been ordered with VW UK until that date. If you gave over a deposit to your dealer for your new GTI/GTD on 01 March and VW UK didn't accept the order until March 27th (when the books officially opened?) you're no further forward in the queue than someone who ordered on March 27th and their order was accepted by VW UK same day (if there is a logical queue :drool:).

If your dealer has emailed you (as a PDF) or posted you your order confirmation form it will have the order acknowledgement date and your tracking number.

Like i said though not everyone has got that date, only the people that have had concerns, feel free to add it if you like but i wouldn't expect everyone to including myself.

Also could you do me a favour and just update your original posts in the spec thread please mate rather than adding new ones? Once you've done it i'll delete the new ones.

Cheers

Jimble: Done! I didn't think I would be able to modify a message so old. Other forums I have been on only let you modify your last message.

Just noticed your updated spec details. Looks like we've both ordered 5 door GTi's (DSG) with PP & DCC in Pure White around the same time (you a day earlier than me).

However there does appear to be a significant difference between our 'estimated' build weeks (27 vs 35), possibly due to the other optional extras you've ordered. I'm guessing it's most likely the 'Pano Roof'??? (Could be talking a load of old rubbish mind you)

Pano roof was the cause of huge delays for the Scirocco. They were low or out of some key components for about 7 months. At a time when Rocs were routinely being belted out in 11 weeks, some unlucky soul on my old forum waited 38 weeks for his!
