Otherwise how are the dealers going to survive if they have to wait a year before getting paid ??

By charging £200+ on labor in the service department.

Based on forum members comments on this and other forums on waiting times to book their cars in for servicing / warranty work at dealers, I dare say that dealership service departments have more than enough incoming work - and revenue, when labour rates are factored in - to keep the dealerships ‘ticking over’ for some time to come :whistle:.

So how do you find out the delay information if the dealer doesn’t inform you?

I have to chase them. ‘I’ll let you know if there are any changes’. Never happens.

I feel u’re pain,I ordered same time as you and i’m on build week 18,but at least I can blame that on changing colour. Was originaly on BW 47. To be honest I’ve lost interest for when I get it now,it’ll just be a welcomed phone call when its ready.

Although it is not a Clubsport 45, I thought you guys would be interested in the perspective of timescales for production/delivery of cars that I will be picking up my new Golf R MK8 (which was heavily loaded with options), tomorrow 10/12/21.  I first ordered the car way back around May 2021.

Good news Brendan  :cool:
Not too shocking a wait compared to some.
I hope the pick-up goes well, fingers crossed the weather stays decent for you  :smiley:

Good news for you. Hope you enjoy.

Like Exonian said, you’re waiting is quite good as things are. The latest on my 45 is unscheduled build week 1 of 2022. I ordered May 2021 from a VW dealer.

Many thanks for your congrats

It seems there has been a recent surge in production of certain types of Golfs and other models such as ID3's etc.  The video for my MK8 Golf R on arrival to the dealer revealed my Golf R was surrounded by mainly ID-3's and other electric models which had also just been delivered.  Hope the wait for the remaining Clubsport 45 orders will soon be over for those of you who ordered a similar time to myself. 

THe wait for my car ended up being a similar timescale to my current Golf R when I ordered it in 2016.  Maybe a little longer but not a lot of difference in time waiting.

Am looking forward to picking it up tomorrow, Just hope the weather remains as dry as the weather apps suggest it might be... 

Hopefully the software on the Infotainment is a bit more stable and error free than some of of you have experienced on your cars.
