I asked my dealer about the TCR when confirming my car last week, he said to me that normally they hear stuff from VW which they are told to keep quiet on, but right now they have heard nothing about any forthcoming products. I have no reason to disbelieve him.

He thinks (his own personal opinion) that a Tiguan R and a Arteon R are likely to be announced soon before any Golf announcements due to where we are in the lifecycles. But again, they have been given no info from VW regarding anything.

Frustrating is the word I’d use. I wouldn’t mind if they’d just come out and say it isn’t coming to the UK. Australia and other countries have confirmed it but nothing over here. At least if they did say it wasn’t coming I would be able to move on the gti pp deal I’ve got waiting.

Just heard back from the dealers with a CS. No discount at all and a really poor part ex offered. Also wouldn’t transport the car as it’s a long way from me. Suppose dealers hold the power with a CS as it’s high demand but low supply. Oh well.

That’s interesting. The motoring press have been reporting that mk8 Golf production starts in June 2019, so mk7.5 production will have stopped in advance of that date to enable the Wolfsburg plant to tool up for the start of mk8 production.

2016 Pocket Rocket Polo GTI 5dr manual, Blue Silk, Jacara tartan seats, Sports Performance Kit, Climate Control, Convenience Pack, Parking Pack, VW Motorsport Alloys in anthracite.
Gone but not forgotten; 2011 Golf GTD; 5dr Carbon Grey, Grey Jacara tartan seats, 18" VW Rotary alloys in Anthracite, Bi-xenons, Parking Sensors, RCD510+Dynaudio, Luxury Pack.

I’m not going to believe anything until the car is on Vw UK’s website. Even then Vw customer services will probably still say it’s not coming!

August would be a very strange time as SRGTD has said. Mk8 and TCR production at the same time would make no sense but what do I know? I thought Vw had even confirmed production begins in summer so that’s not even rumour like the TCR.

Surprised that the car is on Vw Belgium’s website first. I’d been keeping an eye on the German one. Great find kane1210.
