Hit by a double whammy - price rises and build week has slipped from 46 to 51  :sad:

My spec has jumped £800 and with the calculations is only a tiny bit under the 40k luxury tax band now.

To add insult to injury, my dealer is clueless on how ved/ car tax works
On order for September (who knows what year): MK8 GTI Clubsport in Moonstone Grey, DCC, 19" Adelaide’s, Reversing Camera and Winter Pack.

Current: MK7.5 GTI Performance in Deep Black Pearl, DSG and 19" Genuine Gloss Black Pretoria's.

Surely your price is locked in from when you ordered it?

The car cost/ finance is, but the tax is calculated at the point of registration. Any more rises and it hits the luxury band

Christ on a bike! That car would book at around £32k max I reckon.
Greedy swines. £34k retail fair enough but that’s shocking.

If they’re selling for that sort of money I’ll bin mine off ASAP and drive around in a heap until the world settles down.

You can keep your Porsche’s and Ferrari’s, a bog standard Clubsport is the new flippers car of choice!

Imagine what the first Clubsports with a bit of spec on them are going to be worth when they start arriving around Xmas  :grin:




Of course Im being sarcastic  :smiley:

The automotive streets are paved with gold right now!
Mad times.

It baffles me that new orders have been having stupid wait times yet there’s not exactly a void of in stock cars from most marques. Several people I know have picked up in stock cars quite easily recently so it begs the question why buyers will suffer huge delays yet accept that there’s a supply of unordered cars coming through whilst they twiddle their thumbs.

I think it comes down to spec. The in-stock cars are likely to be standard spec or have just one or two options, and there’ll be certain options that are ‘must haves’ for some would-be buyers, so they’re prepared to suffer the long delays to get a car with those options. 

If I was considering a new GTI or Clubsport, I don’t think there’s anything I’d want over and above the standard spec, other than a set of better alloys, and I wouldn’t be picking any of VW’s factory alloy wheel options, I’d go for a set of good quality, aftermarket alloys.

What I meant was why don’t the factory concentrate on fulfilling pre-orders before building unordered “stock” cars? As a customer that would bug me massively if I had one on order.
Granted certain options might slow things down a trifle but not 8 months.
