  1. I know of two friends who have done just that. One wanted a Toureg for the winter and the other wanted a polo. Both went to other makes. I would NEVER go through that all again so i don't blaim them.
  2. What i talk about below is what happened to my order and i suspect the same has happened this year. VWuk has to book a certain number of production slots on the factory lines a year in advance. What happens is VWuk and other countries often get it wrong in the amount they need to book. Last year they booked less due to economy and underestimated the scrappage deal draw to customers. This year im guessing they thought the VAT hike and end of scrappage would reduce demand more than it has. So Dealers only get a ceratin amount of cars a month to sell but still sell more if they can which bumps the time up. Other countries and UK also try and beg VW for more slots which often bumps other orders down the line and so on and so on. VW have to get parts from parts suppliers who cut back on staff due to the economy and so cannot produce parts quick enough which holds VW up. VW also cut back on production capability a few years back due to lack of demand and this takes time to get back upto speed. Nearly all VWgroup factorys have hit these problems skodas delays are longer than VWs on certain models. And SEATs have a long delay on certain models too. The fire in one of there factorys that build the scirocco has not helped reduce delays on that and other models made there. The mk6 maybe quicker to build BUT thats no good if you don't have the capacity to build to the demand or the infantry to ship/deliver/store and handly this amount of extra production of cars or the supply chain to supply you with more components to make extra cars. As i said earlier check other websites, other countries are waiting as long as the UK or longer especially if there country get there amount of slots ordered wrong.
  3. I think some of you may find its not just UK supply. If you goto other websites you will find all of europe supply is taking this long.
  4. Your all going to have to get use to LED DRLs though as every make is going to have to use them soon.

  8. Best place to advertise my current MkV

    Im in Newcastle upon tyne and used Pistonheads a few times always sold quickly on there.
  9. MkV DSG - failed!

    Robin spens most his GTI time on the mk5golfGTI forum now.
  10. Mk6 gti

    I know what you meen, They restricted the choice with the mk5 like that too. There are a few options in the VW acc catalogue but thats a dealer fit.
  11. Mk6 gti

    Heres some shadow blue photos i posted a while back. Anyone got Shadow Blue with their Mk 6 GTI? Heres some photos of my shadow blue mk6 GTI. Sorry for the poor quality of the pictures below. A couple of photos of my mk6. Its not a common colour on the mk6 GTI and a total barstuard to try and show what it really looks like in a photo. That american one i posted (first link, 2nd page.) is the best representation of it imo. would they make the same choice again ? Yes white/black/red is so common and the choice everyone else has, i wanted to be slightly different and love the colour.
  12. Im thinking about it but its nearly £500
  13. Sadly not. Theres some wiring adaptors needed and some coding by VAGcom to be done too.
  14. Pirelli or ED30?

    The pirelli has a heritage as its what the mk1 golf GTI campaign was called in europe. You could say it has a bigger heritage than any edition model as there just special editions to help sales. Were as the pirellis were runout last of the line limited run models of the best GTIs. But if your going to piss about with it, chip it, change stuff, and mod it then yes the edition 30 is better as you won't bastardise a very limited run model.
