Hi guys,

Im seriously looking at buying the Edition 30 GTi and have found a dealer who has an 'allocation' available. The only problem is, the dealer is currently unable to tell me when i would take delivery of the car, as he is not sure how VW will issue their allocation, i.e. One per quarter, all at once, etc etc.

So my question is, does anyone who has ordered one/looked at ordering one have any information on build/delivery times. Also interested in the spec you order.

Mmmmmmmmmmmm...................

I ordered one in the middle of November with 1st of March Del.

A few dealers that I spoke to didn't know the allocations at the time. But, it turns out that each dealer will get one a month. If there is more than one outlet in the chain and the other garage has not sold their car they will have two to sell [:D]

I hope this helps. Are they giving any discount?[^o)]

Hi guys, cheers for the info. So if the dealers are getting one a month i could be looking at March time if im lucky. Thats not too bad i suppose, only 68 days.

I haven't got as far as talking exact prices at the moment but cant see much discount to be had. I will try damm hard for a bit of discount, but probably only on extras as doubt they will have no trouble at all shifting them.

TagnuT, Ollie - either of you go for DSG?

May i ask which dealers you bought from? Please email/PM if you would rather not publish it.

Also can i ask the reason you are buying the Edition 30. Is it because of its looks, the performance upgrade or due to the limited number? Or all three?

Finally, what are PESCARAS?

Cheers guys.

Hi - hot footing from the http://www.forum.golfgti.co.uk/index.php?topic=46410.0

I ordered mine November and build date has been confirmed week 4 - delivery 1st March.

Mine will be 3 door, silver, xeons, 6cd, rcd500, highline, sunroof....and Black Monzas. The pescaras will be available for sale once i get the car.
Ollieb7, why are you selling the Pescara's? Surely you'd do better to hold onto them until you sell the car, hence passing the car on in it's 'original' guise?

What are you putting on in their place anyway? I think the Ed30 would look great with some 19" CH's.

Hi to Ollieb7 recognise you from forum golf gti .....so Hello [Y]

The one I have ordered is a DSG, five door, reflex silver, USB armrest and Bi-Zenon headlights.

Love the DSG (see my other post. I do think that the manual gearbox is slick though ) But the wife is disabled so need the DSG ( she has a Mercedes C240 auto so we have one V6 in the house). Five doors for the 2 kids. Arm rest makes the cabin look soooooo much better. Zenons always wanted them.

The reason that I chose the Edition 30 is that I was all set to order a standard GTI (5 door, DSG, Zenons, Leather and 18"). If I had ordered that it would just have been a standard GTI with leather & Monza IIs ( nothing wrong with that at all), but for the price of the Monzas & the leather you can get an Edition 30, with a little more power as standard, 18" rims and half leather, plus there will only be 1500 of them. I'm not into spending extra money on tuning after I get a car ( bad episode with a Mk2 Escort & a Weber Carb = more noise & no more go lol .... that was 20 years ago). I do like leather, but the leather in the MKV is not as good as in the Wife's Merc and its more expensive than in the 3 series that I was looking at!

The dealer that I have ordered from is in South Yorkshire. But they are as tight as anything! (Yorkshire folk for you!) They have another dealership in Doncaster also, but that could only say that it could be March/ April or even May at a push. I did try the dealers in Huddersfield and they were talking about July/August Del. I could get an Audi TT just as quick (Only problem there is that I can't fit the kids in the back). Smith Knight Fay in Stockport couldn't give me a straight answer, but they do have eight other dealers in their chain, they said that thay might have room to move on the orders though.

Cheers Tagnut

The 19's look so much better I think. Shame VW aren't fitting them as standard.
You think they would really. As I think the monza 2's in 18" are the best wheel for the car. The BBS CH wheel in 19" is something else though. I should know as I have that wheel fitted to my GTI. The amount of people that now stop and look at the car and give the thumbs up tell me I have made the right choice.

Spent most of this afternoon ringing round and visiting various dealers gathering information on the edition 30.

Spoke to one dealership who had ordered two for themselves and were taking delivery in January. One order had yet to be confirmed and i was offered the chance to change it to my specification. Was told i had to do it right that moment (4pm) as they were closing and the order would be confirmed by VW during Xmas break. All that was needed was a ?1000 deposit. Told them i was able to commit at the exact moment in time.

I also tracked down a car exactly to my specification (excluding the xenons) and could have it in January.

What you guys think? Shall i take the chance while i can, as pretty much most dealers i spoke to had sold their allocation? I mean i would love Xenons but i can definitely live without them, where as a different colour car or 5door with xenons i couldnt.

Guess ive got over Xmas to decide.......
