Having ordered on the 15th Jan I finally get a build date of week 15 delivery week 18/19, I can't handle the wait (I may be a gibbering wreck by the end). Am deliberately going nowhere near the stealers incase I get a rush of blood and steal the one in the showroom.[8)]

I have not seen any on the roads just in the dealership, until yesterday saw a Black GTI with 18's, i was not to keen but now i wont one!

I think it was the lack of not being colour coded i did not like.

Having ordered on the 16th Jan, mine was built last week and I'm waiting shipment, so within 3 weeks fingers crossed. Waiting this long was bad enough! Mines not as high a spec as yours though which plays a part.

oh man, I am actually dying. My surgery at work is COVERED with GTI pics. I am getting very strange looks from my patients [:D]. I have a supercar calendar (present[:eek:)]) and have covered up the Spyker Double S pic with my GTI. I want this car so badly now. I almost ordered mine when Doc ordered his and I wish so much that I had. Just think though, didn't Christmas only seem a few weeks ago...

The build dates seem to change a fair bit, i was told two days ago it was scheduled for build week after next, then yesterday the stealer told me it was in the paint shop, however i was told about 2 months ago it would be roughly this week so it was been built about the time they said at the start. I can't wait, 1/3 of a year is a long time to wait for a car.

Thinking of adding highline and arm rest to order but worried it may push the build date out longer. 8 weeks is a long enough wait and any more could see my health seriously suffer.

Uzi9 you should setup a special clinic for expectant GTi parents, you'd make a mint.

if you are going to add something do it asap, i think adding the mfsw to my car delayed it

You think that's bad.

I have re-coded the Fifth Gear Gti Test into MP4 and have it running on my SE K700i Phone. How sad is that [:I]

Your preaching to the choir mate [;)] Just make sure you don't tell anyone outside the forums [:D] hehe

TBH I think the armrest is a vital option - it looks a bit funny without it [!]

Hi

Long time lurker, first time poster here.

I ordered my GTI on the 11th Feb. Any idea when I could expect delivery? The dealer said May, but judging from the posts on here it sounds more like July [:(] I'm not sure my tyres will last that long!

Excellent forum BTW - I often delve in here for hints and tips.

Welcome to forum jacknelle,

Quite new myself, but does seem the best Golf forum by far.

Anyway, I would expect end of May [:)]and certainly not July. Ordered mine 29th Jan and have a build date of week 16 then 3 to 4 weeks for delivery. It's certainly tough waiting but I'm sure it will be well worth it in the end.

Steve

That was my thinking on the extras - maybe my tyres will last then!! In the meantime I've bought a PS2 and a copy of GT4, so at least I can pretend I'm driving my new GTI. Sad, I know.
