Polo GTI+ is back on the configurator

Post by SRGTD » Sun Aug 12, 2018 7:13 pm

As per thread title.

According to VWCS a while back, the GTI+ was originally removed from the configurator due to long wait times (42 weeks) and excessive demand - you could still order one though, even though it wasn’t on the configurator. Should we read anything into it being added back, or was it actually deleted in error and VW have only just got around to updating the configurator? 🤔

Iam not sure if something in configurator really matter. Iam from Czech Republic and our configurator already showing GTI with manual transmision. :) I ordered it few weeks ago, no build date yet. :? I hope my registration is not a problem since Iam not from UK :)

I wonder what the emissions test cycle implications are for Manual, and first registration tax?

I'd have had a manual if available at the time of ordering, but can live with DSG.

Not sure about tax, we don't pay it here :-) I sold my Audi A4 after year because of automatic transmision. It was nice and comfortable but I missed that feeling of connection with car :-) Also I tried gti with dsg and it was same :-) so I waited few weeks and ordered it once it was possible :-D
