This is my High Up! Got in April 2012 and already done nearly 5k miles in it! It has the sports wheels and suspension and every single optional extra on it! I absolutely love it!

Where have you been since April?


How have your alloys faired after 5 months?

Are you very careful? Someone said they would be a mare to repair if need be

I was going to order these alloys to replace my classics as I preferred them, but the dealers couldn't give me a delivery date or even a vague estimate, but yet they wanted my money upfront, admitting that it could be 6 months before I actually received them

That's out of order, there's no reason why they can't give you a delivery date, and asking for the money upfront is wrong! Wow 6 months is a long time!
Should try another dealer?

Exactly my thoughts. He even asked me to ring back in a few months and see if he could give me an idea about delivery by then! It put me off to be honest, that and the thought that if they got curbed by hubby (not me of course!) then they would be extremely expensive to repair.

Dont understand why it would take so long just to know a delivery day! Haha! I would hate it if someone else curbed my wheels and scraped them! Us girls are more careful! Haha
Yeah i bet they would be expensive! But for me my dad sprays and refurb's alloys
(not that I'm going to curb them!)

My dealer has said that the Sports pack is prooving popular. It may be that demand is exceeding supply for these wheels. Wheels are produced in batches at a time to keep production costs down and it could be that the next production batch of these wheels is not scheduled for several months.

They were after all produced originally with limited orders in mind as they are not standard model fitment. Stock that was previously set aside for spares and parts orders are now having to be used on the production line.

Woo hoo, triplets! My little man is exactly the same, he was delivered in July though.

Still waiting on black caps however, apparently now expected before 14 October

I went mad at VW on the centre caps issue and involved VW customer service, stating it shouldnt take nearly 6months for a glorified piece of plastic! They said its a global issue and the factory isnt evening saying when they will be made....looks like we are in for a long wait!!
