Thank you spec 369

Dealer said delivery in 12 weeks, but looking at some of the post on this excellent site that seems optimistic. Bought a few new cars in the past this one has captured my imagination - can't wait, its a bit of a surprise / present. Went for the new VW Aqua colour, haven't seen any in real life only photos hoping its as good as it looks
When I picked mine up there was a lady collecting her aqua just before me.beautiful colour! My car was quicker than scheduled so hopefully yours will too!

Your dealer providing an indication of build week, was quoted mid November this morning.

mmm. Would it not be better to hold - off registration until January, if I don't get at least an October date that's what I'll insist on

You should have an order number as well so you can follow the order status in the app or online and your dealer should tell you what the estimated build week is.

That is something I am considering, delaying order for a couple of months and going for the new registration and March delivery, not convinced I want a new car going into the winter months. Dealer told delivery would be slightly longer due to my spec. Did ask if going for a DSG affected delivery times, but dealer said no, but not sure dealer always knows what’s going on in the factory, so I take some of their answers with a pinch of salt!

Note the factory shuts down for August, as the Spanish head for their holidays and who knows how Brexit may effect car delivery and costs, so perhaps best to get by 31/10.

Hopefully you will be able to get an October delivery as you require, dealer did mention factory is prioritising UK orders to get shipped by latest Brexit deadline of 31/10. (Not sure if how true this statement was, but makes sense).

Suspect delivery times are only likely to go up as the car becomes more popular and orders are placed, very good write up in recent Auto Express.

I don’t understand why anyone would want to hold off! What is the real gain in the long term?

The only advantage for me is a bit longer to save up for the Deposit.

I've ordered a DSG, I'll let you know my timeline. Really good reviews on the sites I've seen, not too many on the roads yet
