Special orders like my dad seems to have gotten (to make up for an error made) seems to muddy the waters relating to waiting times also when they can add in a last minute order to right a wrong.

Was given the impression that if I hadn't seen the tracking discrepancy that i'd be none the wiser when my dad's correct car came through a few weeks after mine. It does mean though that the tracker does seem to be very accurate, as the reason for my dad's order anomaly is now known.
Whey ya bugger! It's finally arrived after an 8 month wait....

What's the latest order number here somewhere around the 232415xx range?

Delays have to be down to allocation for GTI and GTD. Order 23241655 is for a VW Golf SE 150TDI and it's already in confirmed build status - how long ago can that have been ordered? Not long i'm guessing as I can't get the tracker to give me anything beyond 23241669 (which is a GTD BTW)

So you got told BW26 and now you're confirmed. Hoping to see my status change in the next day or so seeing as dealer and VW UK have both told me BW26 and I was first order at my dealership.  :huh:

Good theory but not correct. My order, placed with the dealer on 8th April is for a GT 150TDI, order number 232080xx and it has been on 'Processing your order' since I received my order number on 12th April. I am told by VWUK that I have an unconfirmed BW27.....

Bear, yes I totally agree.  Their systems do not favour the customer whatsoever.  But do they really care?  No, as they'll always be someone to buy a new GTI.

Plus, let's not forget, the UK is hardly high up on Europe's Christmas card list.  :sad:

Who do you guys speak to at VW?

My salesman is on holiday so I thought I would try getting an update from VW. VW customer services were so unhelpful and told me they don't give estimated build weeks. When I said I had an unconfirmed BW from my dealer she said I would have to speak to them....

Thanks for the customer service VW!?!

True.  The sooner they realise that they're better off letting us run everything for them the better!  :grin: :grin: :grin:

But of course I jest (or do I :evil:)
