VWuk (not dealers, they can only report what they are told) have always being the same. Ive had this issue since we bought our first new VW in 1996 nothings changed and I expect nothing ever will as long as the customer base keeps coming buying their cars.
Mk1 GTI, Mk6 GTI, Mk1 Leon & 4 non VW.

Much earlier in this thread I observed that Autocar recently listed the TCR as to be released around midsummer.
The Mk8 Golf was listed for Nov 19.

Yeah, you would have imagined that from a marketing perspective, they would have announced UK prices straight after the UK journos all drove it.

It will be a massive flop if they release it here now as too much talk of the Mk8. Plus, it's a track oriented car so actually not much use here in the UK for an everyday car.

You're better off with R anyway!

I had a new R in early 2018 - a complete bore fess to drive compared to a GTI. Sold it after 2 months and replaced it with a new GTI Performance. Which has since been sold and currently for sale at Maidstone VW

The GTD was re-added to the configurator yesterday evening, so they are seemingly still updating the website... but no sign of the TCR... but stranger still there’s no sign of the R even though dealers are saying they are taking orders again.

A shambles. :huh:

Both great imo, just in different ways. Hope I like my R but I’d also be happy with a gti. Let’s face it, the Mk7 is a great one.
