      I just test drove a white 2 door last night at Thompson VW in Warrington, PA. Someone ordered it then "fell on hard times" and decided not to buy it. It's a great car but I just don't know if I could ever buy one if it's not Rising Blue.

      Head's up though if anyone is looking for one in stock.

      Also, does anyone know how to keep track on the inventory? Or what # car recent owners have received?

      Should have spaced the LA part from the R20 part a bit but still looks nice

      all that waiting for almost 17 months while checking in and reading up on the Golf VI R forum with all of you was worth it, what an experience! I love it!

      Saturday I went in to my VW dealer to sit down and meet my new sales guy face to face (first one was transferred). Instead of an April/May build date, it is looking more like the end of July and VW is now calling it a 2013.

      I won't see this car for months

      Placed my RB 2D order on March 26th...
      At that time, ship load date was 5/5; dealer delivery 6/4.
      TOTAL: 70 DAYS

      Got my VIN number last Friday and some much-improved dates :
      Ship load date is now 4/24; dealer delivery 5/21.
      TOTAL: 56 DAYS

      That said, can I expect these dates to improve even more?
      Seems like four weeks is an awfully long time from ship load to dealer delivery.

      WOW. I placed my order in December. I'm wondering if I chose the wrong dealer.

      I know...Seems like everyone is all over the map on their delivery timelines. Could mine be related to dealer-to-dealer trading? I know my dealer already had an order coming, but swapped it with another dealer to get the configuration I wanted.

      I think it also has to do with that place you are on the dealer's wait-list. My order went in back in October, but my car won't get here until next month since I was 6th on the list at my dealer and they were only getting one R allocation per month.

      My wife's 4 door TR.



      Picked it up 4/7, ordered it back in the beginning of January. It was supposed to a loaded model, VW decided to be funny and build a base instead. It's currently having Nav installed by VW to make up for the fcuk up.

      We did a trade assist for it on her '10 Jetta TDI Cup that had an issue. We got this one for $30,540 + tax So I'm okay with it.

      Ordered 3/26 a CW 4 Dr Nav&Sun
      Ship load 6/22
      Delivery 7/30
      Hope I still want it by then and don't get distracted by something else.

      I've got mine on order! Does anyone have any plans to do this upgrade:
      http://youtu.be/1OHsikmWMKs to put it at 350hp? I've never driven one and I'm afraid it's not going to feel fast enough. I drove the GTI Autobahn, but it felt wicked slow. I know the R has 56 more hp, but the AWD makes it a lot heavier right?

      2012 RB Golf R
      04-29-2012 05:39 AM #759
      I am a week late on updating my delivery status..

      Picked my RB 4-Door on April 21st, 2012 from Southtowne VW in Salt Lake City.
      The staffs there had been amazing since the day I decided to order the R from them, there was an update call from them every Monday till I picked up the car (Great people, great service!)

      They walked me through the entire process of getting the car ready for delivery, and I was able to drive the fully wrapped car into service area, unwrap the car and top of the fluids, etc...
      I am a HAPPY man after 8 months of waiting...

      Here are some pics from the day of delivery:

      no one touched the car until I got there:


      unwrapping the car


      bottom, looks like nothing is missing for me





      DRL and HID are AMAZING

      With everything going on, I wound up taking the car in my least wanted color choice (Deep Black), but all things considered, it's still a wonderful car--however, keeping it clean is going to be more work than I was hoping.

      According to PWL, my 2d, RB left Emden on 5/26 and is enroute aboard the Nippon Hwy...s/b in Davisville on 5/7.

      The $64K questions are:
      a) How long is the passage from Emden to Davisville? Any chance it'll get here early??
      b) Once it gets there, how long should it take from port arrival to dealer delivery in NH?

      My VWhub update says: 'Release to Carrier' 5/15...does it really take a week to clear customs?
      Obviously I'm hoping they're hedging their bets with liberal dates and it shows up early...

      Took delivery of my RB 4-Door w/ nav yesterday. Absolutely loving it so far. Just threw on the painted reflectors I had ordered from John@FTC5. They came out great and make a huge difference. Thanks John! Have some other things planned in the near future such as tint, APR stage 1, Euro-R springs, Euro tails and Neuspeed RSe14 in gunmetal. Will keep you guys updated.

      Not the RB I had on order, and crappy photography on my part, but thrilled to get this CSG beauty, and be enjoying it 6-8 weeks sooner!

      I am one happy owner!

      2012 Golf R, 2012 GTI (wife)

      So I took a test drive of the 2012 Golf R yesterday...and put down a deposit! Not something I planned on doing, but glad I did. My wife had made an appointment for me after I mentioned earlier in the week that I wanted to test drive one. She picked up a 2012 GTI @5 months ago and every time I drive it I like it more. After pulling away from the lot on the test drive, it instantly reminded me of my beloved but long gone 2004 R32...which is what I was hoping for!

      I had tested several cars over the last month but wasn't sold on any of them for a variety of reasons;

      - Mini Clubman S and JCW: Nice interior, decent performance, WAY TOO MUCH torque steer
      - Subaru WRX and STi: Down with the performance, not sold on the looks, interior leaves much to be desired
      - Audi A3: Smaller version of my current ride (A4 Avant 2.0T quattro), still has me wanting for more
      - Volvo c30: Like the look, but everything else is meh.

      I wanted to stick with hatchbacks as I haul around lots of stuff, including double/upright basses and Rottweilers Needless to stay I'm very excited about getting the R in a few weeks (Danbury CT VW). They had a black one in stock and while nice looking, but I'm not big on owning black cars. It turned out that they had a 4 door Carbon Steel already en route from overseas, which is supposedly the last one they are getting for 3-5 months (who really knows though). It's the full package model, which I was really only interested in because of the potential difference in the stereo. IMO the Dynaudio turned out to be a very noticable difference from the base stereo in my wife's GTI. It will be nice to not lose a sunroof (from the Audi). I don't really care about the nav but I do like the interface better than my wife's GTI.

      Regardless, I've got a R now with my name on it and I'm very excited to be back in the VW family! Even better is that it turned out I actually had equity in my Audi, so between that and selling my bike (25th anniversary Buell XB-12Ss) I'll still be paying less $$$ a month on autos, and be much more happy driving
