I'm sure it will be worth the wait!

I just got confirmation yesterday my car gets delivered next Thursday, yippee, feels like a long time coming, and can't wait to get out of company pool car, an Aventis 2.0d which seems to have been designed with a set square, and scratch and sniff plastic parts that pull off in your hands, including a screw on gear knob that unthreads itself when you change gear!

I don't blame you  :grin:

As I can't drive until January anyway for medical reasons, anything will be better than walking and overcrowded trains!

Must make the wait even worse taking the train all the time, never mind - plenty of time to read evo or other mags about tuning, wheels etc..

 Now thinking about winter tyres as sold last set with spare wheels when got rid of mk5 gti, damit!   :angry:

Just ordered my new company car. I have never had a VW before but after test driving the Volvo V40 D4 190 R Design and the GTD it was an easy(ish) decision.

I have ordered the GTD in black with the following options: Leather w.heated seats, Discoverer Sat Nav, Rear parking camera (bit of a whim that one) and high beam assist. Having read other posts i have just contacted the fleet company to see if i can reverse out the rear camera (excuse the pun) and add the Sport and Sound pack - fingers crossed.

Stock date is showing as 19th January but as the order only went in yesterday this may not be particularly reliable.

Sport & Sound or camera?
That's a tricky one. Camera was my first option, in fact VW ran out of cameras and you couldn't spec it on the car for a while and I know a few folk on here delayed their order to wait until it came back into supply, me included. Its an option you will probably use every journey and for the price of it is a steal. It would always be my first option on a new car and one I really missed when I defected to Audi for a while.

Sport & Sound I added for more as a gimmick and must admit I am impressed with the growl it gives off. If I was buying another car I would also add something similar if it was available and miss it if the new car didn't have it.

Ditch the leather as it's not really leather spec the camera and sport and sound and if you really want heated seats spec them. It'll still be cheaper than leather option.
