WOW

Just had a call from my dealer who tells me my GTD has been allocated build week 33.

Thats Mid august, so I'll be lucky if I get it by end of september.

Gonna wait and see what the website tells me to see if they have been told duf info yet again.

Not a happy bunny!!!

Hi Guys,

I sent an email to my dealer on Friday requesting an update on delivery.

Anyway, having being orginally given a week 33 build, I am now told it has been brought forward to week 27, however they stressed it cannot be confirmed until probably week 22. Roll on the next two weeks !!!

I hope for once that this is right and all orders have been moved forward now VW have pulled themselves together.

Just had an email from my dealer who tells me my gtd is now confirmed for a week 26 build !!!
Not too sure if its on the tracker yet, but very much doubt

Hope so, my current build week for my GTD stands at 37!!

Ordered my GTI on 3rd May from Vindis St Ives Cambs. Just been given provisional BW38, dealer did say this would change but did not say in which direction, better not be any longer.

Ha, you're just up the road from me!  I've been given provisional wk37 (different dealer though) wonder which of us will be first to get ours?  :tongue:

Yes noticed that, think you must work near the science park if you can see Vindis Cambridge. Did ask the St Ives branch if they had a demonstrator yet but no so still have not seen one in the flesh.

Yep, I'm on the Science Park.

In other news:
I just send VW a long (unfortunately) email with some very specific questions designed to settle some of the confusion we're having, particularly over the wide range of BWs people are being told with no obvious reason what causes a longer wait or even if the information can be considered reliable.

If they respond I'll post here together with my list of questions.  I've asked if they can be as frank as possible as I hate it when companies just give a canned or vague answer or disclaimer and don't understand why that is the single worst thing they can do from the customer's perspective!  Lets see if they take my point or not...

So, this is interesting.  Asked my dealer when their demo is due.  He says he does not know, and hasn't had any information.  This backs up the issue with the BWs - if the dealer itself hasn't even been told when they are getting a demo (and thus getting it later than other dealers), then this implies that the build time on their allocation for customer orders will be later than other dealers too.

I think this is the issue, in which case there is fook all I can do about it.  It seems its just bad luck based on the dealer itself.  And obviously this is not information that VW would want the early buyers to know, otherwise you would order from some and not others.

Annoying, but I feel at least there is some explanation and its not just random shizzle going on in the VW order system computer!

Did the dealer tell you what the 7 weeks delay is down to? Dealer made an optimistic guess on BW for your order which has proven to be way off? Did you change your order at all?

He does not know why and I have asked him, he is going to try and find out.

I did change the specification quite a bit, but nothing Drastic, car started out as:

GTI Performance (Manual)
Pearl Black
Dynaudio
Winter Pack

To:

GTI Performance (Manual)
Oryx White
Dynaudio
Park assist.

Could be the park assist?
