my initial impressions of the test drive was that it was much nicer, quieter and more comfortable than the mk6.

I got 11% off ( about £3250 i think )

There's a bunch of folks that'll tell you that Pure White is a pain to keep clean but I totally disagree. After having my Mk7 GT treated & sealed with GTechniq paint protection, it looks great for weeks on end and I only wash mine once a month. Point being, it's considerably easier to maintain than Deep Pearl Black and white's excellent for disguising swirls, scratches and chips accumulated over time.

I'm surprised you didn't opt for the Adaptive Chassis. I would've found the ride too hard without, it's become my favourite option along with the xenons on my GT.

I've had black cars for the last 9 years - it's time for a change.

i didn't really think about adaptive chassis to be honest...I don't hoon it anymore so the standard set up is fine for me

Nice car bet you cant wait,i had the chassis control on the Scirocco and i certainly wouldnt pay for it,nav pro is expensive but it looks a lot better.  Mines 3 years old next month but think im going to keep it for a bit as i havent really decided what i want next although top of my list at the monent is the new A3 sline,i love it.

You wont get one until around four weeks before its built so not until new year in your case. I presume when you said " BW is currently 4 2014, expected to the dealer late feb, pick up beg March hopefully." that was info from your supplying dealer? - if so they really are guessing at this stage and should not have given you a build-week until its confirmed by the factory (when you would know anyway as you look at the tracker!).

Thats a very attentive dealer - just have to wonder at the point of sending all customers a weekly e-mail now the Order Tracker is on-line (depsite its faults)!

Ive been using the vw dealer for years and I've bought 4 cars in the past 5 years.

I just went in - I'm a company car buyer but we only have a few cars, not a fleet. I didn't ask, they just offered straight off

So, the car is currently at stage 4 of 7. I guess that means it will arrive at the dealers in February

Nice choice! I ordered mine in December and its due to be built in week 5 2014 which means hopefully it will be here for 1st / 2nd week in March on a 14 plate. Wonder why the wait on the diesel was so long?

Same week as mine then :). Think that's the week they are running UK cars from the details I have seen on R's, GTis and I guess the diesels.

Mine is being built a couple of weeks before hand on 13/01 :P. I know of another two cars with same build week as mine - one I think is a GTI - not sure on the other one think it's a 2.0TDI in GT form. Still, would be nice awaiting an 'R' though  ;)
