I have a R line
Lovely car however not to put a damper on your order but I find mine very gutsy I’ve done 90miles and impressively she’s used half a tank of fuel in three days 😳
I am contemplating buying a diesel Audi
You never know my car may be up for sale soon here 😢
I originally ordered mine April and got it October with a winter pack, had I had to wait any longer I would have cancelled my order

Crikey, 90 miles to half a tank, me mate gets at least 120 and that's a 2.0 Hyundai Coupé

I believe I got average to work of about 50ish dependent on my mood, sometimes more, some less... May point out it's fairly flat around me and when I commute there is little to no traffic. Oh and mines a Beats 95PS manual.

The hire car I have (i10) is about 52 everywhere creeps up a little on a run, but Christ is it slow. Going up a sliproad is awful, it takes so long to build speed it's ridiculous.

Which dealership did you order through? I've got mine on order with VW Stockport and they aren't helpful at all.

Southport which are joined with Wigan, yeah they're useless. It has moved to 19 now, so with 8wk delivery I'm predicting delivery week beginning 8th of July for pickup.
Apologies for the late reply I haven't been on the forums for a while.

Thanks. Well, I was told last week there are 100's of Polos which haven't been assigned a build week and they are trying to get in contact with the factory to find out what is the delay.

I've also been told that they are still working on delivery for middle/end May 19.

VW UK said they would be in contact with me every 3 weeks to provide an update on the situation.

If nothing gets moving by the middle of April, they going to have to do some serious work to keep me as a customer.

How do you feel about potentially having to pay more after 29th March?

VW, Audi & Porsche are all asking people to sign waivers when placing orders now. Have you been asked to sign anything like that?

I ordered my car just under 2 weeks ago and I wasn't asked to sign a waiver and no mention was made of potential price increases due to Brexit.

I'd have lost patience at "trying to get in touch with the factory"
What does 'trying' mean in this day and age of multiple means of communication?
I'll tell you what it means, it means they're just going to sit back and wait, they're not making any proactive attempt at all.
As Yoda said, "Do or do not, there is no try"

I was. My vehicle list price would remain the same but I'd be liable for any charges on top of the invoice cost. So the standard April 1st price rise wouldn't affect me but any increase in duty or import tariffs I would have to pay for. This is for cars being delivered to the UK after march 29th. If I didn't want to pay the charges I could walk away but I would lose my deposit. It's why we went for a stock car.

That was Volkswagen, Audi were exactly the same and I've read online that Porsche have done the same thing. Might be worth checking with your dealer to avoid any surprises?

I specifically mentioned it when I ordered my car in May, because of the long wait time I needed them to guarantee that the price would be the same so I had them give it me in writing before putting my deposit down. I'm going to Southport next weekend (I have moved to Manchester since ordering) so I will go and check in, but as it stands it still has a predicted -unconfirmed- build week of 19.
