      I think there's too many variables: 5 colors, 2 body styles, 2 trim levels - with only 5000 US cars allotted for them to build for stock right now.

      Maybe they'll build for stock after the initial ordering blitz calms down and they can see what the most popular packages are.

      Is it safe to assume since mine is in transit, I should have it by early may if not end of April?

      Please add P55532 to the list. Thanks.

      Good to see you're back, Tom - hope all is well.

      I don't know if you are going to go down the list again to update.

      If you are waiting for individual requests, then here is mine - M24227.

      Thanks,
      RC.

      Tom glad to hear things are better for you, and sorry to hear you had some health issues...
      As is mine, 4/27 is the due date at port for the Shanghai Highway in Houston. Just over a week from docking! Of course it still has to get put on a car carrier and driven up to Chicago area but... on the continent is good.

      Yeah so true....I am hoping that maybe the currents have shifted just to help the Shanghi move along a little quicker...yeah I know not possible.

      I wish.. my sales guy isn't the most informative person in the world, he told me it just arrived, and I should have it end of april or beginning of may.

      but if it helps any my car had a in transit ETA 4/23 when Tom updated.

      deposit at dealer on on 3/1/2012, i believe they actually placed the order on the 5th, because we went back and forth about this.

      I hear ya on not getting a lot of info from the dealer...I too am getting limited, but if I read the shipping sheet right and you being in New York yours should have come in on the Ocean Highway which off loaded in Davisville Ri yesterday or the day before.

      now what makes me happy to see that is, mine should have left out on the 12th following the same route as yours on the Shanghai Highway. the Ocean Hwy only took 8 days to cross...which mean the shanghai hwy should be in Davisville tomorrow and then headed to Houston where mine is suppose to be off loaded...I hope anyway Enjoy the ride when she comes

      Well, I almost cancelled my order with the local dealer, because I found my car in FL, but my local dealer told me my car had moved to Production Stock (4 months after order). He also tells me the scheduled production week is 4/23.

      I would just like to get confirmation on this info, if possible.

      My Comm #: N92304

      Thanks!

      ETA 4/23 means its on the Shanghai Highway which docks in Brunswick GA on 4/23. That same boat the heads to Houston and unloads more cars (including mine) on 4/27. This boat is now in range of coastal trackers.

      I'm with ya there...mine should be on the same ship. Although I think we have talked about that. At its current rate it looks like it should be in Brunswick sometime tomorrow afternoon. About 1 day ahead of schedule...YAY....I too am more anxious now since I found her on the map last night out around Bermuda...I wish the darn ship could go faster....

      Tom --

      Glad to hear that you are feeling better. You have been doing the Golf R community a wonderful service, and you are keeping a lot of people from losing their sanity.

      Can you give me an update on N69139? My dealer tells me the date is "getting closer." Good news, I guess, in a negative sort of way. At least it is not getting farther away.

      I placed the order on December 6. It's been a long time to hold my breath.

    26. 04-22-2012 03:24 AM #1846
      I know this may be a bit off topic but can you confirm the 2013 Golf R is in the order bank but not made available for order placement yet? Thanks so much

      So the Cougar Ace landed in Davisville, RI on Monday, and left port yesterday. It's pretty much spot on with the port arrival ETA date I received about a month ago.

      Looking at the status update from a month ago, the next ETA date is "Release to Carrier" on 5/2/12 and "Dealer Arrive" week of 5/7/2012.

      Could I expect the dealer delivery date to possibly be even earlier? The dealership is in Philly, so could it be quicker?

      hey Angina, Im in Philly was told May 7 by Cherry Hill VW as the arrival date about 6wks ago. Was kinda sceptical about that...but now if thats what u were told, I feel better about May 7 actually being the date....maybe our cars are on the same boat?

      Anyways to answer your question I think if the car hit port stock yest/today,
      based on other ppl's experience May 7might be realistic
