You should get "build week confirmed" 4 weeks before the build.... when they have all of the parts lined up and a slot reserved...

At that point nothing should stop it getting built...

Right, thats my thinking too. Its not likely to change now. The status on his system was "Frozen" a few weeks ago and last week it was "scheduled".

I am in Ireland, but I don't think that makes a difference. Its the same factory.

I’m slightly nervous now. Managed to order one last week and it’s now due with dealer today from container… I was told originally that it’d be up to 28 weeks, but pushed for them to locate one or I’d look against a later point. But one was located and due at dealer today. Should have it in a couple of weeks.
This maybe due to me not being fussy about colour or spec’in it over standard. But managed to get a black one, which I think looks very smart on these cars.

Be sure to post up some pictures when you’ve got your car.

I’ve owned my fair share of black cars over the years (I’ve had five) and IMHO they do look great when clean and shiny. The downside is the time and effort it takes to keep them looking good - I found it was a real labour of love. Adopting a safe wash technique (if you don’t do this already) and investing in some decent cleaning gear to minimise the risk of paintwork swirls is highly recommended.

Also, steer clear of the Eastern European hand car wash places, automatic car washes and don’t let the dealer wash the car when it goes back for servicing / warranty work - unless you want your car to get the ‘scratch and swirl’ look :smiley:.

Good video, thanks for posting.

I took from that the ISA requirement isnt even decided upon yet, so near 0 chance of it appearing on MY22 GTI’s

So they won't affect us until the mk8.5 is released or 2024, whichever comes sooner...
