Non Clubsport Order Thread
« on: 16 September 2022, 10:26 »
It seems that lucky Clubsport orders are arriving way quicker than people with bog basic orders, so I wanted to see if others are having similar situations.

I just had an update on mine;

- Ordered June 2021 - Standard + sunroof and winter pack
- Latest Update - status 10 (whatever than really means) still estimated build week of 21 2023.[/li][/list]

That would be pretty much two years!!! I don't mind driving my 7.5 for longer but this is a very long time indeed now.

I have it in writing that my deal is all protected etc - so i can't see any reason for the dealership to drag their heals on things. So i am assuming it just a lower priority for VW.

202? Mk8 Golf 2.0 TSI GTI - Moonstone Grey / Sunroof / Winter Pack

Ordered my white manual with 19's winter pack and reverse camera mid September 21. The last update I had (July) was week 16 next year. So would be 20 month's at least before I see it. :sad:

So today is the 24 month anniversary of ordering my manual GTI.  Many build weeks have been and gone I am now looking at build week 02 / 24.

Is anyone else in the same situation??

The day has finally arrived. After a two and a half year wait, I will be collecting my manual GTi. It was built in December 23 the last batch of manual GTi's ever to be built.
Shame about the weather 🌧️🥺

Congrats Stretts, you do realise its future collectors status makes it too valuable to actually drive? 😁

Enjoy!  :cool:

Don't let Exonian spoil things for you Stretts.

You'll still be able to take pics of your car and post them for us to enjoy even if you can't drive it.   :grin:
