      Supposedly they had an allocation but from what others have said here that apparently doesn't matter. To make matters worse the dealer is not communicative. At this point I'm debating whether to get another VW at all.

      The whole spektrum program was pooooorly executed. VWoA should be embarrassed by how it was handled. I would love to see the auto magazines and websites that gave VW an outlet to promote this program follow up with how it was actually carried out. It was essentially free advertising for the R since they knew auto magazines and sites would pick up on it due to over 40 colors available. I've been wanting a Jazz Blue Golf since 1997 when the original Driver's Editions came out and went through the process with dealers early on but when it became evident that it was going to turn into another VWoA cluster****, I bailed. There's nothing wrong with my 18 month old 17 R - I don't need to take the $$ hit and deal with the hassle of wading my way through the "ordering" process.

      I just hope that they can properly execute the ability to actually place an order for a custom color R once the MK8's are in production.

      Vw and ordering just sucks period..which is bizarre bc with Audi you can get your exact build. Its your car your way. Vw
      ...its all based on allocation..ya we'll take your name and deposit and if...

      Sorry to burst your bubble (I, as well as many others are in the exact same boat as you)...Spektrum orders placed with dealers with confirmed allocations (I spoke with regional VW rep that confirmed my dealer has one allocation) and radio silence...no one knows anything...in my case, same regional rep apparently and all of a sudden can't get any answers (this was 2-3 weeks ago).

      Having said that, I really hope you are the exception here!

      I'd love to say VW should be ashamed at how they handled this program...but that is nothing new for VW.

      These, both of these. I hope it works out for you, but I’ve consigned my thoughts to simply “it’s only for the lucky and for the dealers”. I guess there’s always vinyl wrapping.

      Mehhhh...not a fan of wraps...but that is just me.

      I am so soured with this process...my dealer is willing to sell me a stock R at invoice...should be a no brainer...but I dunno...

      US will have a fix of some kind or other compensation due to car labeling laws. Canada may not since they don’t appear to have a law for car labeling like the US does.

      I bought a new 2019 DSG Golf R and the performance monitoring is not there. I’m in talks with Volkswagen right now for a compensation. They have offered me a money amount that I’m not sure if I should take. So with that being said if it’s missing on your car in the US you probably can get some money for it. I just wanted to let everyone know out there that’s missing it. Also on Volkswagens site it is missing on the advertisement page for GTI’s and Golf R.

      Can you please share your vin or at least the production date? Trying to figure out the first vin that got the performance monitor fixed.

      Production date on the car is 2/19. They originally told me the gap for missing performance Monitor for the cars but I forgot the dates. They also told me that if the car left the factory without it chances are it was not going to be put on later. I think that’s a reason for compensation because they don’t know how to fix the problem. Surprise surprise!!!

      Can’t fix it? I don’t beleive it at all. Anyway.. my car was produced beginning of april so it should be fine. On the train by now.

      Take the money. You'll never use the performance monitor after the first 2000 miles.
