Apart from me... [:D]

Just wondering who else is counting down the days for their new 56-platers to arrive, there must be a few on here surely?

I've been given build week 36 so far for my GT 170 TDI ... oooh the suspense [:p]

spec: shadow blue, xenons, 18" charleston alloys and highline computer

Hi all

New member alert! I've been lurking on and off since I placed an order for a GTI in May.. however I just had a call from my dealer (Inchcape in Bridgnorth) to say it has arrived today, ready for pick up on the 1st Sept!

The spec is as follows:

Tornado Red 3dr
DSG
18" Monzas
Anthracite Leather
Xenons
Winter Pack
Reverse Sensors
Highline Computer

It's now finally sinking in that it's all happening - let the sleepless nights begin!

PS I must say that the service from Inchcape has been superb, they were very friendly and have kept me up to date with the order process, my only qualm is that they didnt know much about the Ipod integration (not really an issue, I've found out a lot more from places like this [:)]) Now if only work could let me leave early so I can go and take a look at it [:p]

I'm waiting too... before the deposit I was told 1st September, once they got my money it's kinda changed to 'sometime in September'...[:mad:]

I keep getting the weekly call too but just to hear they haven't a date yet!

Well....my girlfriend just took a call from the garage saying it is being built now but instead of the 'maybe 1st week in September' it sounds more like 'sometime in October' [:mad:]

To all those who're getting theirs on the 1st - I hate you all [:mad:] lol

Just kidding - I wanted mine on the 1st cos that's my birthday, but beggers can't be choosers huh - maybe if I didn't spend so long dithering over my order I could've had it sooner [:cool:]

Not a VW but still exciting for me none the less.

Mine is at the dealers so all being well I'll be sorted on the 1st September.

Ordered mine 2nd June, GT with DSG gearbox. Found out the other day that apparently all DSGs were scheduled for build week 35 and therefore won't get it for a few weeks into September. I was originally promised 1st, so a little disappointed.

Can't stand the wait!!

My GTI DSG order is a Week 35 Build.

I had an email from the dealer on Tuesday basically saying that assuming there are no manufacture or shipping delays I could have it by the 15th Sept.

But mine is a company car and we're only allowed to pickup cars between the 1st and 15th of each month (something to do with Payroll cutoff) so if I miss the 15th by even a day, I've got to wait until Mon 2nd Oct - and that'll be a killer knowing it's at the dealer ready to roll!!
