Lead times

My Order has just gone in for the new GTi but have been told by the Reg Vardy in Leicester that i shall probably have to wait until August for delivery. I am having the standard Red, with the Winter Pack, and a Speaker Upgrade. Is anyone else ordering now facing the same delays?

Hi Andrew, I ordered from the same dealer a couple of weeks ago (3dr, DSG, 18", MF steering wheel, 6cd) and was told Jun/Jul. Waiting for an update, but if you're being told August having just ordered, that would broadly be in line with what I was told, although I've gathered from other comments that the DSG is taking longer than the manual

It is frustrating but gives me time to save, and from what I've read the wait will be worth it

Yeah, the saving bit is very true, although that just encourages me to add on more options, hence the Winter Pack. I was initially going for the Xenon lights, but a car mate of mine suggested that c.£700.00 was very expensive, and after all is only ever of use when it's dark. Mind you, i'm having the Winter Pack and picking it up during the Summer, lol...Don't really know why i'm getting it, perhaps so come re-sale time, i have something more than the bog standard..

There are a few car supermarkets selling these from stock! It's just VAG UK restricting supply to keep prices high!

Can anyone suggest any of these supermarkets? I have got, as per Barry's, Winter Pack, (without the leather), + Speaker Upgrade at £250.00, 5 Door, Tornado Red, for £19,700, so it would have to be around this price?

Most of the supermarkets and brokers I have contacted have said the same as the stealers and are quoting the same lead times if you want any options. So I've just ordered mine from my local stealer today, luckily they already had one in the ordering system that could be modified so I should have mine sooner than a lot of people it seems.

I think it's only pretty much standard cars with few extra options you'll get from stock. The stealer was saying this today, he had a silver and blue in the showroom and was saying he was having little interest in them as most people wanted to specify options.

If its got leather and DSG someones been telling her porkies. People who ordered at the end of November are only getting build dates for the start of March (delivery end of March). Therefore unless she's got one that somebody has cancelled I'd be looking at July.
