Re: PCP Contracts, Discounts and Salesmen [HELP]

I'd definitely have the films removed. If there's damage present at PDI and the dealership misses it, VW absolve themselves of all responsibility and rectification cost is on the dealership (a new 1999 Polo had a pressing defect on the wheel arch with a perfect paint job, undeniable manufacturing d...

Re: PCP Contracts, Discounts and Salesmen [HELP]

Just to add I’ve also asked the dealer to not touch the car upon arrival. I’m even considering asking them to leave the protective film on the bonnet and roof. Otherwise you’re removing scratches/swirls they’ve kindly put in for you at their washing station where they pay the guys £6 a car....

Re: PCP Contracts, Discounts and Salesmen [HELP]

I do think that the "need" to use pressure washers on cars is oversold. As long as you're cleaning your car regularly so nothing gets baked on and are using microfibre cloths when cleaning so that you're not dragging abrasive crap along the car body surface, you'll be fine. You can have all the pre...

Re: PCP Contracts, Discounts and Salesmen [HELP]

I’d be starting to wonder if maybe a Fiesta ST would be a better option :lol: Personally I prefer the reef blue over the white, makes it look more prestigious, but if you really don’t like it then what other choice do you have! I do like the Reef Blue, I honestly think it looks pure filth - I just ...

The wait was over as of Thursday last week!
Congratulations, blue was my first choice but it came down to a very fully loaded white car, a standard red or a black one immediately. Ironically I think the gti is the only poo that the blue looks good on too.

Re: PCP Contracts, Discounts and Salesmen [HELP]

Having driven only manual cars as my own car (until mine arrives) but plenty of pool/hire cars as automatics I’ll tell you one thing - don’t use your left leg to brake! Despite having done well over 250,000 miles in the last ten years and driven automatics numerous times I’ve nearly head butted the ...

Re: Vehicle Deliveries

Your dealer is the best place for updates. Others on here had their car built two weeks before mine was built with their car at Emden for ages, but I’ve just had confirmation my car only landed in Emden 1st July.

Re: Vehicle Deliveries

For a company worth billions of pounds it's embarrassing how bad that app is. Had the same problems as you mentioned. It's not even accurate either. Makes you think about quality control, as that app has clearly not been tested properly. You’re completely right. I’ve not had an issue with either of...

Re: Vehicle Deliveries

Anyone else having issues with the tracker app today? Mine has booted me out and when it logs back in keeps saying “no matching resource found”. Even when I try to crest a new account under a different email.

Re: Vehicle Deliveries

I ordered a pre specced car that was built w/c 23rd March and mine is somewhere in emden still. Dealer expects it will arrive in the uk next couple of weeks.

Re: Used GTI+ OR Brand New R-Line (Fully Specced)

The lesson I’ve had from buying cars is get the car you want. Sure, you can compromise on the odd option if it comes quicker, but don’t get a lower model or higher model just because it makes sense to if you like cars and enjoy driving. I’ve done this before and then say there thinking “I wish I’d j...

Re: Delivery Times / Best Colour Choices

I’m with Monkeyhanger plus I’ve been told by several salespeople that if you’re on pcp, the book price for your car is for that trim level and they don’t consider any extras you’ve bought. I was always told it’s best to go up a trim level if possible rather than add a load of options to a car.

Re: Delivery Times / Best Colour Choices

I looked at an r line but with the spec you’re looking at, a gti plus must be looking like a good alternative cost wise? The led lights, active info, keyless, 17” wheel, driver profile selection and parking sensors are all standard on the gti plus. I suspect the wait might be the number of extras yo...

Re: Vehicle Deliveries

This may have been answered elsewhere (trying to juggle work and other stuff whilst writing this) but is there any way in the app to get the detail of if it is stage 5a, 5b or 5c?
