      Sounds like it was a lot of last minute backing out.

      I personally saw 3 vehicles at 3 dealerships I passed this week that were available. I asked at each as I was curious.

      Questions remain! should not all R's be already sold except for a few that had financing problems or just decided they didnt want the car so i dont think that would be very many ...plus any i see or hear of around sell within 1-2 days here in B.C., mine came as like a month ago" second choice blue,, bahhh i ordered Red", so my dealer and VWC are doing some magic and somehow doing a swap out of province for a T RED R i wanted and was told it was one of the last R's being delivered, it will be here in a week, so all should almost have homes within a week....just thinking of those poor lil R's without homes makes me want another one !!JK dont have the first 1 yet ...they might be like kids !!more hassle than they're worth !! again JK Jaydogg

      I picked up my R two weeks ago. If I solely rely on the info from VW Canada, I will never get my R.

      Unfortunately you can't program it to open the windows AND sunroof with fob. You can only close the sun roof using it. I was hoping opening would be an option for the hot summer days walking up to the car, but windows only still gets the job done.

      Anyone have any insight and how was your R shipped.
      Same here, I noticed that on my 2rd day of ownership, weird indeed. I'll bring this up with my dealer next week, let us know what you find out too!

      Hey guys I picked mine up last last week. I was going to pre order but decided not to last year. I just looked on kijiji and auto trader 2 weeks ago and there were a few for sale in Ontario. I got mine in Newmarket without a pre order guess I got lucky

      I dropped off my car to the dealer this morning because this weekend I was hearing a loud gridding noise from the right side of the car. Sounded like a piece of tin gridding. I hope all it is a rock stuck between the rotor and the metal guard. The sounds not always there and it seems to only happen when the wheels are turned slightly to the right. Very weird. Of course while I was driving it to the dealer it didn't do it.

      It's most likely a rock. The same thing happened to my GTI. By the time I got to the dealer it must have fell out.

      Hopefully yours is the same.

      probably the RB i didn't buy because they were low balling me on my TDI.

      So if you could order R with any color, what would it be? Saw a Merc with flat black and I think that's what it would be for me.

      I think this is exactly what happened. The dealer couldn't find anything.

      I couldn't live with a flat colour. They smudge if you give them an aggressive glance.

      CSG is perfect. Even with a coating of dust you can't tell it's dirty unless someone rubs against it.

      I picked up my R yesterday and I've had a few cars try drag racing me. I don't want to race and get screwed. Some douch in a Passat ripped off while I just cruised away tonight. If you have something to prove go to the track.

      Interested but can't say that I can make it out for sure. I'd be a game time decision. I'll keep an eye out for updates. Who knows, maybe my Euro taillights will have arrived...it just got released from customs. Come on Canada Post!
