My brother’s GTI is finally being picked up on Tuesday. I’ll get some photos up.

I went into my local VW today and was able to have a good nosey at 2 Clubsports and numerous GTIs. All looked good.

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.

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.

I placed my order 15th December 2020, Heard nothing, still "with the factory"
Dealer last month couldnt tell me when I would get the car so cancelled!

It was mid November! Crackers eh?

I went to Vw Blackburn. They had 2 Clubsports, 5 Gti’s and a couple of GTDs. Interesting also had a Tiguan R and Touareg R.

I was looking in Jan/Feb.  I was being quoted times of between June & August from dealers and being told that a mix of Covid and the semi-conductor shortage being the main culprits, so November is not entirely unrealistic.  Circumstances dictated that I was unable to wait that long, so I decided to go for a base-spec ClubSport and I have zero regrets.  The only thing I feel as though I am missing, with hindsight, is the HK sound.  I was going to spec DCC but, having now driven the Clubsport, aside from the 'cool-factor' of having the Nurburgring Mode, I really don't feel as though it would've been worthwhile as I feel the ride is good for me as it is.
