Dear Cali Gurus,

I ordered my Beach which had an October build date but been told "good news" its being made the last week in August.

Now, WLTP rules kick off on Sept 1st so assuming there trying to make my cali (and sure many others) miss this new WLTP emissions test, but is this a good or bad thing?

Cali now sold
Good probably. More stringent emission testing seldom has a positive outcome for engine tech and reliability.

Got to be good news as you’ll get some use out of it in September, which is one of the best months to use the Cali IMHO.

Very good news for you. You can't lose can you?
Perhaps with the California having been through what the Marco Polo appears to be going through right now VW are expecting to grab a few more orders from disgruntled Marco fans and have ramped up production?

They've halted registration of new vans due to emission problems, just at vw did earlier this year (spring?).
