When is there going to be an order window opening ? I am ready to get a new TDI since I did not buy the R . Love my MKVI but want a loaded 4 dr TDI .
Anyone here pre-order a Golf/GTI mk6? Any plans on pre-ordering a Golf/GTI mk7?
Just curious...to those who have done this in the past, is this done through a dealership before they even receive the first new shipment? It'd be great if you could share what the experience was like and any details/pointers.
Riding my lease out (done 10/2013) and waiting to see what this car looks and drive like before I make any decisions.
If the Golf MKVI and MKVII aren't drastically different, which I doubt won't be the case, then I'll look at a Volvo C30. I've been craving something other than a Volkswagen for some time now, lol

I would say I am pretty much ready to put in an order for one. I am still driving around a 12-year-old GTI, that I bought new. It has been solid, but figure it will be time to replace it in the next year or two. My friends would say I should replace it now. I have become so accustomed to the VW feel that there isn't really anything else out there that I have a desire to own. I travel for work and have driven so many different makes as rental cars. Honestly, there aren't many/any cars in my price range that I love the looks of 100% these days (hate the rake of windows to the back that leave horrible rear visibility), so I am willing to commit to whatever VW brings as a design for the next Golf/GTI.
Also, through work I have access to straight pricing $500 below invoice on VWs, so I would be fine with that kind of deal.
The Golf is the bread and butter of the European market for VW, and European sales of the Golf are far more than North American sales. None of the generation changes for the Golf have been radical so far, and there is no reason to believe the Golf 7 will be radically different. It's going to be a practical, well-made, solid hatchback with unobtrusive if not bland styling. Ze Germans wouldn't have it any other way.
There is nothing to pre order so any thoughts along those lines is premature. This no announced release date for the U.S. or Europe for that matter. No order codes or an established date when dealers can order from the factory. Really don't see any point to pre order when none of the released configurations are defined and no launch announcement is made. You'll get your car no sooner than someone who waits until VW is accepting orders.
