DTD state a base price of £32,480 whereas Vw state £33,845 for the gti pp dsg. Seems a sizeable increase.

R is base £35,460 at Vw with DTD at £35,635! All seems very odd.

I imagine there's a major cock up on the configurator.

If you download the pricelist which is dated Dec 19th Dec,

http://origin.volkswagen.co.uk/assets/common/pdf/pricelists/golf-vii-pa-pricelist.pdf

A 3dr DSG is 31825 but 32815 on the configurator exactly 990 more, the rear view camera was 340 and the lane assist was 650 which are both now standard.

id imagine as the 5dr has keyless this cost has been added on to the base price also in error.

Just got to wait for them to realise.

I've never really trusted the configurator for pricing or spec information. It's been shown up several times in the past for inaccurate and misleading information. I'd be more inclined to trust the official price list from the VW website.

Thanks for the replies. I hope you’re right. Vw uk are hopeless.

Just a quick update.

I’ve got the concrete figures from the dealers for each car. Gti PP DSG, pan roof, Brescia alloys, pure white and 90% tints for £28.4k. R dsg, lapis, prets, 90% tints and black mirror caps £31.1k. They’re also going to guarantee my part ex which was better than any other dealer. I’ve told them I’m waiting until end of the month/middle of February before moving forward which they’re fine with. Want to hold on a little in case of a tcr announcement. What do you guys think of the deals? Not going PCP just getting the contribution.

I've been on carwow and specced a GTi dsg with tungsten paint, DCC, climate screen, dynaudio and nav pro and best offer is 15% off bringing the price to £30,772. I might have to ditch nav pro and dynaudio  :whistle:

I was thinking that about the pan roof! Didn’t know what weight it adds.

Personally I think Nav Pro is a total waste of money, and if you like music and/or spend any decent amount of time in the car then Dynaudio is a total no-brainer because the standard system is so poor.

I don't think the standard system is that bad and the nav pro is much better than the standard system. It just completes the look of the dash and to be honest the buttons on the standard system look odd where they've been placed.

The standard system sounds fine to my ears, and I have the standard Discover Nav. Sounds much better than the stereo in my previous Mk2 Focus anyway. Not as much bass, but much stronger midrange.
