    VW Lead Times always bad?

    Ordered my GTD a month ago, factory still hasnít acknowledged the order yet and I have a provisional estimated delivery of end of July. Colleague of mine ordered a Tiguan at the same time and they have a provisional end of October delivery date. Are VW lead times always this bad?

    Yes it is the WLTP testing, it is causing havoc for all manufacturers.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
