Bill: Am I right in thinking that it looks like my dad's GTD will be the first mainland UK GTD getting here and maybe even the first DSG GTD?

There is a GTI with a confirmed BW the week before your dad's, but it is manual.  After that your dad's car is the first GTI or GTD confirmed.  So currently yes, he is first GTD and first DSG in the UK (that we know of).

However, there is a GTD DSG that was ordered the week before his that currently does not have a BW confirmed yet.

What week was your GTD ordered?

MKVIIGTD: My dad's order was officially accepted with order no from VW UK on 3rd April (as was McMaddy's, from same dealership). My Manual 5dr GTD (no extras) was ordered 3 days previous and 2 weeks later I changed colour from DBP to TR, which may have bumped me back a little (a week going by what VW UK have told me)..
Whey ya bugger! It's finally arrived after an 8 month wait....

MKVIIGTD: No extras, just 5DR DSG standard spec. It was ordered in TR but the tracking info shows DBP as the colour (a colour he'd considered but didn't want to pay £500). If it arrives as DBP he'll be quite pleased with it as he will not be paying for something he never asked for. The original order acceptance document clearly states TR for colour, but the VW tracker website says otherwise.

I do think certain extras are kicking these orders to the back of the queue (i'm guessing ACC and sunroof but Bear's stats might tell us more when people confirm their BW with him).

Yes, my Dad. Your inclusion of ACC blows my "ACC delays build" theory right out of the water - you may be the earliest confirmed UK build that has ACC on as an option.

I have made no changes to my original order, maybe that's the key thing.
I knew exactly what I wanted.
DSG will delay things as will changes to spec.
GTD will be quite a few weeks later.

Late June/early July delivery. :tongue: :tongue: :tongue:

Meant to ask, but why is a panoramic roof not allowed with the 19" wheels? The configuration tool won't allow them both as options.
