Just out of curiosity, has anyone got a Clubsport on order in which you ordered Jan/Feb?

I ordered late January and have just been given an unconfirmed build week 44 (November) :angry: - I was told by the dealer that it would be June delivery.

I know these are subject to change but build week 44 is a bit drastic and is swaying me more towards cancelling.
Ordered - Golf GTI Clubsport. 19” Adelaide alloys, Rear view camera, Pure White.

I'd say that was entirely probable... But remember you won't even get order confirmed from the factory until the dealer has allocation and after that there is the lead time... Which when I was chatting with the dealer when I picked mine up the other week he was talking 33 weeks lead time.

My order has been sat at 'Stage 2 your order is with the factory' for 5 weeks now (which is expected). I just thought the unconfirmed build week would be a little closer than that. Its gone from 30 > 33 > 44 which is concerning.

OK so if you are at stage 2 then at least your dealer has allocation...

The problems they have at the moment are semiconductors... Everyone making anything has the same problem. Its crippling everything.

I placed my clubsport order 2nd February and it's at Stage 4 - production build. Expecting it to be complete this week.
How long it takes to being delivered to me is the harder guess.
Sorry to hear you are facing this problem

I would guess that beyond dealer allocation there could be other factors at play... maybe the dealer has a lot of orders, maybe some dealers are given queue priority over others.... I doubt its a first come first served basis at all.

That's terrible, as I am thinking of placing an order but no way wanting to wait that long.

What's your spec? Is it something they cannot get hold of.

Nothing special, 19" Adelaide, pure white, rear view camera. Had an update from the dealer, she says "I spoke with Volkswagen and they have assured me that whilst they manage the back log of Golf orders, they push all of the orders as far back as they are able to, and then place them into a build slot  This vehicle should have a closer and more realistic build week confirmed very soon."
