They will have an unconfirmed build week. They're just not giving you the informationHello! Been reading on this thread for a while.
I ordered my GTI in week 39 of 2021 and have not even got a build week, yet. I had an "unconfirmed BW" as 24 this year but as that came close it got taken off and I have not received a new one since - been without any indication BW or delivery for over half a year. The dealership say they're checking weekly but it is also through a leasing company so who knows! My biggest worry at this point is whether or not the car will come at all, I don't really have any pressure on it, just want to have it finally, and also retain the massive discount I got on it. Been eyeing other cars recently but there is just nothing that comes close in terms of value for money... Has anyone even got the car and can confirm it's decent?
What does the "M" mean next to the Camera and Head up ???? Also the "w"Why would i take that as a dig, i'm not making their schedules lol.
I will say that your waiting time is extraordinary even in the current climate. The "average" appears to be 11-14 months from order to delivery, you're at 16 months already and don't even have a build date yet. One thing i do find odd though is the dealership you mentioned: Bristol Street Motors isn't a VW dealership, nor do they even offer (new) VWs on their website. They also don't run the "approved used" stuff for VW either, so while it might not be a pecking order issue, it could be that franchise dealerships get priority. I'm not entirely certain how it works, but it appears that the order isn't with Bristol Street Motors, but Vertu Motors? The BSM website redirects to Vertu if you look for VW under "other manufacturers". Which opens the possibility that someone sat on your order - and even if not, Vertu again isn't a franchise dealership. Our order is with Sinclair VW, and i'd wager that rayaans is with a franchise dealership as well.
We can argue whether or not that's fair, pretty sure you'd argue that it's not (i'd too in your situation) - i personally think that it normal business to prioritise your own dealerships over third party dealerships. Which of course sucks for you, but it is what it is.
Not even trying to knock you down here, the delivery "date" you got is worthless too without confirmed build week. There's no way to judge the delivery date without (it's barely possible WITH the confirmed build week even, since there's delays possible between any of the steps of the build, i think it's eight steps?), since the build dates are so volatile. What i'd do if i were you is to contact BSM or Vertu (ask Lex where the order exactly was placed and chase it down), and get the commission number as well as a screenshot of the order in their system. It tells you when the order was placed.
By volatile build dates i mean this (this is our order in their system):

We had build dates ranging from week 45, to week 12 in 2023, settled out at week 46 (which is the coming week). You want this screenshot, plus one of the "Dates" section, if only to rule out that between Leasing company and multiple dealerships, nobody sat on the order for a month or two before placing it. Can't tell you where to get it, though, got to chase that down.
edit: that screenshot is from august this year, btw.

Better reply than anyone else to be fair. Even VW dealer cant tell me so ill let them know now"Ordered by the man" and "ordered by the woman".
.. sorry, got no idea. Just thought it's funny how it lines up, the heated seats and wheels were what my wife wanted, while i wanted the toys (and would've gone with different aftermarket wheels).
I’ve ordered a Mk8 R estate this month been told expected delivery in March 2023 which I thought seemed pretty good considering the delays I’ve been hearing some people having only time will tell.
