If you take your entire post, reverse it in opposite land and read it back, it would describe my position exactly!LOL yeah i know ken mate
Insurance isnt too bad actually
been quoted ?680, which yes sounds alot, but for a 21yr old with only 3 years no claims i dont think its too bad
Its really a pipe dream, i am just saving like mad to see what happens, it could be a few months untill i even order
However knowing me, i will get a few k saved up then think
i dont wanna spend this on a car" and put it in a high intrerest
account and put it towards my pot for a house deposit [:$]
Three weeks ago the official waiting time in Australia was a maximum 6 months.Just a quick question... i am still dreaming about the GTI and trying to see if i can afford one
Whats the current wait time for the car (non DSG) for a factory order
My dealer said 4months.. is the correct??
Cheers fella, not got that much saved yet, but certainly on trackGood on you for being able to save so much.
Still seems very cheap... a 21 year old wouldn't get cover on a new GTI in Ireland.Elephant was my insurance company,
But on second look, it was for a 10month policy not a 12month 
Yep, it's like VW's annoying hadbit of listing EVERYTHING the car has,
I took delivery of mine last May and kept it as basic as possible (Metallic, 5 doors, sunroof and centre armrest) The armrest is a must, I retrofitted a Clarion 6 CD player (located under the front passenger seat) which hooks up to the original head unit with an interface.(in hindsight I would have ordered the CD player with the armrest as it is good value)Crikey Chris, you've only just got the car you've got 
GTI sounds great. "If" I was ordering I would prob go for a stripped one. Only extras I would want are armrest & large MFD.
Colour, black (either solid or pearl), red or silver.
If I were you I would phone all the dealers that you can be bothered to travel to get the best deal. Your dealer saying 4 months ain't bad, you probably waited 2.5 months for your current car.
Have you checked out insurance costs.
