Quick update - been tracking the status of the car via the VW Tracker and after a long time at Stage 1 and then finally a move to Stage 2 towards the end of November, I checked it this week to find I'm already at Stage 4 'Your car is currently being built'. So, I'm hopeful for a mid Feb delivery rather than a mid March delivery now.

Might be worth checking it again - only when I checked yesterday had the status changed back to build 3 - still should mean I have it for mid Feb though, so not all bad.

Yes if I can have it before then - it's having a private plate on it and it's a company car so the sooner I can get it, the better really. Already got some small bits waiting to be fitted and some tweaks to do with VCDS  :)

Tell me about it! The joys of having a private plate on the car. Never mind! Booked in for the rear windows being tinted next Friday too for that 'I wish I was a GT/GTD' look  ;) .

Cheers Damian ;) .

 

It has a much more 'quality' feel to it than my MK6. The infotainment system is amazing - love the artwork display etc. Only been out for a short drive to collect youngest from school so yet to give it a proper blast. Got some long trips coming up with work so that will help me get used to it. Very happy so far!

Quick update - 35% tints done, de-badged the rear and fitted the chrome exhaust trim. Internally I've converted all the lights to LED and added the VW LED number plate lights as well and coded them with VCDS so no errors in the DIS.

Yeah it has done - very happy with the end result. No plan to do anything else other than retro fit the rear view camera - damn I miss that from my MK6. Need to save some pennies first before splashing out on that. Got a nice long 320 mile trip coming up on Tuesday so looking forward to that to get used to the ACC and give her a proper drive. Had a quick play with sport mode today - it's going to be difficult to drive it in any other mode now  :D.

I got 60.6 mpg out of mine today heading into London in normal mode. Must admit I don't really use sport as the sound gets on my wick after a while
