Re: Delayed build week (major)

It's not a delay as such. It's a lottery as to when you get a build date depending on options and dealer allocation. If it’s dealer allocations that have moved my build date then hats off to them. They are a very popular Essex VW dealership. If it’s options then maybe not requiring the tin opener f...

Re: Delayed build week (major)

We are staying with my Sister-in-Law who has a Dacia Duster look a like by Renault. It’s an automatic but at night it is very difficult to see which gear you are putting the vehicle in. Does the R-Line have any illumination to help during the hours of darkness? I have an SEL with DSG gear box. Ther...

Re: Delayed build week (major)

I emailed VW customer services who are saying mine is a confirmed build week 44, which is bloody Brexit week :roll: I didn't think it could be confirmed until 4 weeks before :?: So currently it could be a Christmas car, which is lovely. I hope santa is paying the import tax :mrgreen: Did they give ...

Re: My impressions so far

Had my R Line for 4 months now and love it. Particularly so the ACC and fuel economy, get the benefit of both with daily round trips of 35 to 50 miles; dual carriageway, major A roads, urban. What would I improve? I use Waze as it updates and adjusts routes very quickly, would love to see this bein...

Re: Delayed build week (major)

Does this mean anything built after the shutdown will have the 2020 model/engine tweaks? And this is regardless of UK 69 plates? Phoned Customer Services this afternoon as I had heard nothing from our dealer. Our car will be built w/c 2 September and it will be an MY20 vehicle. Customer services wo...

Re: Delayed build week (major)

I'd like to know this too and for how long does it shutdown? What's the reason behind the shutdown- is it a holiday for all staff or another reason? Think it was posted previously somewhere on this forum that the factory shuts down for cleaning, updating machinery and preparing for the changes to n...

Re: Wait for my new toy

Hi Folks Its been a long six weeks since I ordered my new car. I have been waiting for the "ping" on the app to say my car has a confirmed build date, seem like its the look of the draw or a computer that says no, yes, or maybe to the date. VW says a provisional build date of week 41 but the car co...
