The Jetta has fallen a victim of its own success. VW cant make enough of them to keep up with demand and while production has ramped up inventory levels are still at an all time low. Unfortunately for the enthusiast VW has to put priority on its bread and butter models as it struggles to bring inventory levels to comfortable levels and has put the GLI in the back burner.
All pre sold GLI orders are still sitting in the order bank and no cars have been built as of today. The GLi is now expected to ship to dealers in August at the earliest.
2012 GLIs were supposed to be in route to dealers in May but a last minute decision to change the wheels caused a slight delay to June.
VW planned to use the “charleston” wheels used on the 2007 GLI Fahrenheit and 2010 Jetta TDI cup. They went as far as using those wheels for the brochure and Marketting materials. At the New York autoshow they showed the actual 18″ wheel that they will use and I gotta say they look much better! Pic below
