With my GTE Advance's build week (ordered October 17) slipping from week 9 to week 22 over the last month or so I was disappointed to see rumours in some threads that it had effectively been discontinued until the MK8 came on sale some time in 2020 or beyond. So I've been looking at the GTD as an alternative because who wants a discontinued car? But a friend in Dublin pointed out that they are still on sale there with quoted lead times of 16-18 weeks. Looking at VW Germany it's the same thing - GTE still available to order. I wonder if the UK 2017 repricing, the value of sterling and the scrappage scheme mean VW is simply making a huge loss on them here and that's why it's no longer available only here? Pricing one up in Dublin and including my scrappage discount I'm paying about £10,000 less than I would on a new build in Ireland... forget Brexit it looks like GTExit has already happened.
