I'm back at the dealers now and they are going to fix it and check the other liners, not driven far so shouldn't be any damage to the tyre. The vibration is weird though, more like a slight buzzing than a full on wheel balance vibration, could be related so will soon see.
I'd be more worried about abrasion to the lacquer on your wheels than the tyres themselves - causing whuerotm corrosion on the wheels in the long term.

It needs a new liner, they proper messed it up at the factory apparently, tyre is fine not even taken off the little rubber sticky out bits, and it wasn't touching the wheel. They have sorted it so it's not touching anymore until it gets the new one next week, I think but not sure (cos I couldn't get over 55 for much driving home) that the buzzing has gone as well.

Really fast turnaround in Emden for me. I got my 5b notification yesterday morning and my dealer has told me this afternoon that it’s already shipped. Should get 5c tomorrow morning then. Let’s hope it keeps moving quickly.

Mine was in Grimsby for 9 days until it turned up at the dealers this Tuesday just gone, I could have had the car on Thursday but waited until yesterday as I managed to book the day off.

If I can get it in a couple of weeks time I'll be happy, I know it's close now so that makes it easier even if I don't. The long wait from PE to Emden was the worst bit. Knowing it's built but not knowing where it is. I thought it would end up like yours Griff and sat in PE for nearly a month but fortunately not. Yours looks great btw, I'm really glad I too went for blue.

Fingers crossed it gets in a transporter quick! I am so glad I went with Reef blue, it looks much better in the flesh than pictures and in the (very brief) sunshine yesterday it really popped!

Oh I see you are also in Manchester, hopefully we see each other out and about in our GTi's! :D

I’ve seen a blue non GTI in the flesh and that looked nice. It looks nice in the pictures too so can’t wait to see if for real.

I was hoping I’d have the car for summer but I think we had summer earlier in the year. Hopefully it will come good again for us and maybe we’ll see each other about. I’ve only seen 2 GTIs on the road and one in the dealer so it would be good to see some more. They were black/white too.
