Just a query I have at the moment with my recent car order. Just wondering if anyone knows anything.

Iv got a Golf GTD Estate on order, which the dealer said it was on the ship from Emden to Grimsby 3 weeks ago.

Now I'm not new to the whole new car/factory order process, however before once iv been informed that the car is on the ship iv had it within 7-10days. This isn't my first VAG car either.

Anyone know anything as the dealer seems pointless???

Send a message via MSN to J306TD
Could contact VW UK and speak to them. Depends how long it sits at the port for / where you are in the country and the time it takes them to do the PDI and registration

Many Thanks, possibly yes we shall see, its a replacement for our year old S3 misses got a new job and driving to grimsby and back 100mile a day is not the best for fuel economy, should be good though, had a octavia vrs a few years and that was brill so expecting it to be exactly the same as that really.

Do you like yours?
