Looks like a few of us all have cars due in May.

I think I've cocked up ordering Xenons, my dealer could give me very little info about what the standard LED set up was like, but looking on YouTube looks like they are perfectly ok and I've wasted my money!

With such a new car, when I ordered mine in Feb there was hardly any info.

New company car ordered, the GTE only just becoming available, as a previous multiple Mk1 GTI owner and General VW biased fan it was a great opportunity to get to own and drive a plug-in hybrid in a "safe" way and not having to shell out the cash!

Car spec :-

Standard non metallic black
Vienna black leather
Park assist

Currently in transit to dealer in Burton on Trent, step 5 of 7 !

Looking to get a charging point fitted at home too.

Exciting times!

Late May or early June for me. :D :D :D

Looks like your cars will arrive with the bulk of the dealer demos around the end of the month. Those of us who've held off on ordering until we've driven one are going to have to wait the thick end of six months. Feeling I should have taken a punt in November now.

spoke to local dealer today who thought current wait times were 5-6 months. Also confirmed by colleague who ordered one recently and is being told Oct/Nov delivery!!

On the upside my local dealer has one on the forecourt and will let me have a spin for 30 mins so I'm not ordering "sight unseen". Trying to arrange longer test drive as I am not in any rush

Just found out today that mine will be delivered to me on Saturday 5th June. Hope it meets my expectations as I've never ordered a car without test driving first.

My local dealer's demonstrator went on the road today. I popped in to have a look, and the various gte bits look very neat in the metal. I've got it for a test drive for a couple of hours tomorrow. Any of you got your hands on yours yet?

Let us know how the test drive goes!

Kirky, TOMORROW is your lucky day, finally! Congrats!

I wish I knew when I would get mine...

And here it is!
Only about 150 miles so far. I have never spent so much time reading a manual....I'm giving it a charge as an experiment this evening to see what impact it has on the way it drives as I seem to be spending a lot of time with just 1-3 miles of electric charge and it disappears quickly.
