Anyone else having problems with this?
No luck with the Motability Application checker either 🙁
Yet when I called VW UK direct they told me I had an ‘unconfirmed build slot’ of week 36!
Winston, Zaheer, Back Coountry Bob, is it working for you guys?

Whilst mine isn’t a VW it was built on the 14th and arrived in UK on the 21st, have signed to accept registration plate and authorise tax etc and pick it up on the 31st of this month.January 23, 2020 at 9:48 am #103859
@vinalspin what have u gone for. I bet u can’t wait 😊 there is very little I get excited for atm had bad news about my health again yesterday made me think should I even bother getting my car. But after talking to my family they all believe I still should so I will. Tomorrow just isn’t promised so live for today is my new motoJanuary 23, 2020 at 10:00 am #103862
Anneka, we’re all in a bad way just to be on here mostly, I can’t see why you shouldn’t enjoy as much of every day you have and having a nice new car is one of the things that make a real difference to everyday life, doesn’t matter what the future holds really just get the car and enjoy it.
I have gone for the Peugeot Rifter GT-Line long version 1.5 bluehdi EAT8 auto, so much space and a great engine with good economy, I went for all the toys and then added a few extra, very costly but I don’t drink/smoke/go on nights out etc so what else am I going to spend my money on?
I wouldn’t be without my car as it gives me independence and allows me to live a semi normal life.January 23, 2020 at 10:05 am #103863
When I got mine in Oct 2018 it landed in the UK on Sept 23rd 2018, then it sat at the dealers for 5 weeks as it could not be registered nor taxed as VW had not released the WLTP figures as mine was one of the first to land in the UK with WLTP 2 certificate.
When I ordered mine the dealer could not get hold of my spec of Tiguan and I ended up test driving my own car.
You all will enjoy the Tig, its a great car and I still enjoy getting behind the wheel.

Well after 14 years of being a VW customer, I am switching to Mercedes.
Ordering a Mercedes B Class Sport tomorrow in Black. My sister drives an A-Class and she loves the interior. I had a look at the B-class on Sunday and it was impressive. I currently drive a Touran and although I like the car, I felt like change.
Only downside is no Adapative Cruise Control and i have to pay for AppleCarplay on the Sport model.January 23, 2020 at 2:19 pm #103906

So you are passing on your Touran? Did you get the new one last year?

I got the Touran in 2017. It’s good but I fancied a change from VW this time. I have the 1.4 tsi petrol Touran.January 23, 2020 at 3:02 pm #103911
Sorry, I thought you had a 1.2 on order when I got my Tig in Oct 2018 or have I got the wrong man, Sorry if I have.

Anneka, you may want to check with the dealer, mine is apparently still on the ship 🤦♂️🤦♂️🤷🏼♂️January 25, 2020 at 9:18 am #104062
The only thing I am seriously missing on my R-Line Tech which I had on my X1 is a heated steering wheel! I mean – come on! Why can’t they spec it with one???January 25, 2020 at 9:46 am #104064
@Zuby omg really 😮 Problem with my dealer is they never reply, so the texts we receive are nothing to go by…….. oh dear guess the actual tracker and system is literally nothing then big sigh I will see I can get any answers.
@Zaheer76 I’m sure I saw it as an option in the brochure unless I misread it. 🤔January 25, 2020 at 11:23 am #104070
The heated steering wheel used to be available , then they changed the design of it a bit and boof – no more heated steering wheel 😭January 25, 2020 at 3:56 pm #104091
Hi all I got my stage 7 message on Thursday. I just spoke to my dealer and he is still awaiting delivery he said it should be next week then we can sort out the handover.January 25, 2020 at 5:01 pm #104097
Omg that’s ridiculous it’s like the emergency assist my dealer was adamant that this was no longer available to add to the car so I had an online chat with VW who were like yes it is available and hasn’t been withdrawn. So after having a few back n forth with salesperson he got it added. It’s like if I hadn’t saw it myself and questioned why not I wouldn’t of got it on my car smh.
Im don’t even have the physical or mental energy to chase my dealer for a delivery date. I’ll just wait another week or 2 if still nothing then I may just turn up at the dealers so they can’t ignore my emails or not return my calls as they have a habit of doing this.January 26, 2020 at 9:55 pm #104201
@ Anneka that’s strange – mine was built 2 weeks ago , left the factory and arrived at my dealer after 8 days. It arrived at the dealers on Thursday and I’m collecting on Tuesday morning all being well. So all in all from build week to collection it’s taken 3 weeks. I’d ring VW Customer services and ask where it is! (Option 8) – Good Luck!January 27, 2020 at 10:04 am #104226
@ZaheerUK76 you ordered from a good retailer that cares I didn’t lol
9/01/2020 stage 5a in transit left the factory
11/01/2020 stage 5b in transit shipping
16/01/2020 stage 5c in transit near the uk
18/01/2020 stage 6 arrived in the uk
22/01/2020 stage 6 arrived in the uk
23/01/2020 stage 7 car arrived
thanks for the options details just called and the advisor told me the car is definitely at the retailer and can take upto 7days for final checks so he said give the dealer until the 30/01 and he will call me on that day to see if they have returned my calls and if most importantly I have the car. So I won’t hold my breath. At least you get urs tomorrow happy days.January 27, 2020 at 11:01 am #104231
My 5a (11/1/20) and 5b (16/1/20) were 2 and 5 days behind yours Anneka, whereupon it seems my car fell off of the boat or something, never to be seen or heard from again lol

@Colin have you spoke to customer care VW for an update to make sure it hasn’t gone for a swim lol as I would of thought you would be on track. Wow VW really aren’t the best for this tracking and communications are theyJanuary 27, 2020 at 2:42 pm #104252
@Anneka, mine is still on a ship according to vw customer service lol although I have received all my stages via text. Don’t know who to believe anymoreJanuary 27, 2020 at 3:23 pm #104256
I heard there was a big storm , in fact a massive hurricane near their port.. apparently ships were being abandoned… 🙄😉🤣🤣January 27, 2020 at 3:33 pm #104257
Unlucky Anneka so close yet so far awayJanuary 27, 2020 at 4:11 pm #104261
I spoke to customer service this morning and they told me the car was at the dealers and passed all the checks so I contacted the dealer and I’m now picking the car up on Thursday . 😁😁January 27, 2020 at 4:13 pm #104262
Happy days Alex 🙌🏻January 27, 2020 at 4:15 pm #104265
Winston and Dave h have defo made me chuckle lool 🤣😂🤣😂
imagine I was spitting my dummy out and went a got a private quote on a Q3 but feels like daylight robbery compared to motability let me share the theft with pcp deal so the car is £28,888 with a deposit which is my part ex of £9500 payments over 4yrs of £238 with a end payment of £15461 2 free services and tank of fuel ⛽️ a total of £36385 without interest on the £15461 that I would clearly have to refinance. Point I’m making is motability is really a deal lol 😝
