Mine was being built this week too.  I'm just wondering where the notification text comes from - dealer or VW?

Exciting times.... I was obsessed with checking the app. Think it was about 1 month between the stage you are at to stage 7.

Mine is being delivered on Thursday.

Enjoy

The text came via the My VW tracking system. Strangely is was originally saying build week commencing 12th March then leapt to 'in transit' with a text this morning! So it's coming about a month earlier than originally expected. I'm going to have to see what can be done about returning current personal lease car a bit early (as end date is officially 11th May), or I may ask VW dealer to hang onto the GTI for a while - although not sure I want my new car hanging around a dealer storage area for an extra month!!

Its from VW - You'll need to register and have your order number that the dealer gave you - and then just tick all the relevant boxes.  The "My VW" app does the same.

Cheers.  Don't think that service is available here in Aus: "This app is incompatible with all of your devices".

Ditto for my GTI order, the app was still showing a build week of 12/03/18 early yesterday then suddenly jumped to 'in transit'

I checked the order status with VW live chat and they confirmed my car was at the port of exit and cleared to ship. I'm now hopeful of a fairly seamless swap over as my GTD lease is up on the 23rd :smiley:

I'm talking advantage of their 4K scrappage offer...  Can't wait to get shot of the 1.5 diesel I'm currently in....
