    First post in the Mk8 Forum!! Just purchased a 1.5 130 Life in Black, from the always great to deal with Windrush in Slough, to replace my wife's Mk7 1.4 Match Edition. Should take delivery either at the end of this week or beginning of next. Strange process due to all the lock-down measures, but better safe than sorry. If you are not aware VW currently giving first 3 months of the PCP free, providing car is ordered by 12th July, on top of other incentives. Windrush are anticipating that before long there are going to be real issues with supply of new cars due to the factories having been closed for 3 months or more. At present they are only able to sell existing stock.

    Will update with impressions of the car once we take delivery

    We ordered a 1.5 DSG Style in early March, just before the lockdown. The app has been saying ‘build week confirmed’ since mid-March, but obviously there’s been the factory closure. Dealer can’t give the exact build date. We’re being patient.

    Anyway, the one strange thing about the Mk 8 is that the brochure / pricelist doesn’t mention electrically folding mirrors. These were fitted on the Golf Mk 7 and are very useful to check that it’s locked.

    When your car arrives, could you please let me know if the mirrors fold automatically on locking?

    Many thanks.

    ps Pity there’s not more traffic on this sub-forum.

    Just discovered this sub and also put in an order for the 1.5 manual 150 Style at the start of June! The cars state is 'port of exit released' so hopefully should get it in a week or two

    Having a look online, it seems the mirrors to fold upon locking and unfold when unlocked as shown in this vid Volkswagen Golf 8 Style 2020 - FIRST In-depth review in 4K | Interior - Exterior - YouTube

    Thanks IMZee. Hopefully the UK specification will have this too - the video is for the Croatian version.

    Good luck with your order - looks to be progressing quickly.

    When I placed the order last Saturday the sales person, whose current car is a 1.5 eTFSi Style mentioned that there were no folding mirrors when highlighting what was different between my current car and the new one. Presume she would know as she drives one.

    Not sure why VW have chosen not to spec this or offer it as an option when other markets have it and it is in the handbook. Something held back for the first facelift maybe ?

    Agree. Very surprised that my post last weekend was the first. No one had posted anything about thoughts etc since the launch. Less than 24 hours until collection!
