I bet and hope it's just the tracker wrong. it just takes the shine off something that was exciting on 2nd April when I ordered it. expecting delivery late June or early July was just about ok but now September delivery has just tarnished the whole new car buying experience.

Tbf a six month wait is nothing unusual for a GTI, i waited 6 months for my mk6, i think we're getting a little overly anxious due to the amount of poor information flying about! Sometimes not knowing is better and getting annoyed will just spoil it, i posted earlier that my build week is currently 39 but there is nothing i can do about it so why worry?

It'll all be worth it in the end! It was with my mk6.  :tongue:

The only annoying thing jimble is that at no point when I sat and handed over a deposit was September mentioned for possible delivery. it was always late June or early July. knowing this up front would have lowered the expectation and excitement to a sensible level.

 Bill: I'm going to get to the bottom of the order confirmation/build tracker discrepancy for colour on my Dad's car today now he's decided he definitely wants Tornado Red over Deep Black Pearl.
Whey ya bugger! It's finally arrived after an 8 month wait....

ask about allocation too. I've got a feeling Durham have pushed my order back to suit themselves.

mcmaddy: Aye, will do. Allocation questions probably depend on whether Sundeland and Durham pool their allocations or have separate ones per branch. I'll give Mick a ring about 10ish.

Are you going to call your dealership or some other VW customer service line? If so, what is the number, might give them a call myself.

according to VW customer services you're better off ringing your dealership as they can then contact VW sales where the general public can't.
