It depends how the car has been delivered to you. Some dealers will drive the car, others will transport it on a truck.It could be delivery miles with a couple of hundred on the clock depending where the car is coming from to you. If you are collecting the car, then I would expect only a handful of miles, in the teens.

It would be collected from the dealer. Sheffield area.

Ours was on 21 miles I think when collected from the dealer (but it had been to another dealer in their network first; so probably got a few more on than you'd expect if gone straight from port to single dealer).

I collected my GTE with 0 miles on the clock. I vaguely remember reading that VW allows the odometer to be reset once if it has less than something like 100 miles on it, so I suspect the dealer reset it before I picked it up.

That strikes me as being more than a little naughty.

I think you overestimate what car manufacturers and dealers think of owners ;)
No, I just beleve in honesty. If I was to arrange to reset the mileage and not reveal that I had done so I would leave myself open to be in a whole lot of trouble.
