There are two emissions quoted at the moment, old and new - If you look at the UK configurator for the 1.5 DSG you will see

NEDC Consumption and Emissions. Emissions - combined 124 g/km
WLTP Consumption and Emissions Emission Combined 154 g/km

The UK is basing tax on the old system for a while.
Thanks for explaining, was scratching my head on that.
But stll confused over mpg numbers vs Germany :roll: : https://imgur.com/4DzEnCS

Strange that they don't give the 2 figures in the price list as that is where all the info is about tax. Normally the configurator is unreliable regarding options and it seems a strange place to put such detail.

There is a note in the price list which implies the mpg and CO2 figures are determined by WLTP testing while the figures shown are based on calculations to give an NEDC equivalent. This is supposed to allow comparison across different brands, so I guess those calculations must be officially determined in the regulations so as to keep it meaningful.

I've included a screen shot from the new 8th August price list - apologies if the text size is hard to read, but if you right click on the image then select 'View Image' you may get a bigger image.

Anyway, there are some strange dates in the notes, such as NEDC (or equivalent) being the 'official' UK fuel consumption data until 31.12.18 and the data shown is correct at 22.1.19 - both dates seem rather old for this latest 8.8.19 price list. If NEDC is no longer the official UK consumption data, why not give the new 'official' data, and either the data correct at date is wrong or the figures haven't changed since 22 January ! Maybe this is just typical VW publications errors.

One last comment - for those considering a diesel, the notes state that the 2.0 TDI 4Motion may only be available from existing stock and no longer available for factory orders.

T Roc Chick I suspect that you may be right about my Kitchen Sink option holding up my order build week. Good job I didn't specify the Chandelier and Hot Tub options then.
The trouble with a very long lead time is that I have become so familiar with the T-Roc through looking at endless pictures and videos, and I can almost reel off the brochure contents from memory now. I almost feel that I've done the T-Roc and now I want something else ...... no, I must snap out of it, I'm sure that it will be worth the wait .......... worried about Brexit though.

Just got the app notification that the build week is confirmed (stage 3) but it doesn't mention the actual week (although the dealership confirmed to me already).

Maybe your week was not confirmed but it is now. Hopefully it hasn't moved :-) You normally get the notification a month before

I've contacted the dealership to check and confirm what the week is and if it's changed, so let's see :D

It's confirmed and on track by the dealer :D

This makes me wonder if either dealership allocations affect the ordering queue or if they're prioritising R-Line builds as it's the top spec model...?

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 a reason for the delay? Do you believe it's related to the options selected?

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.
