What VIN is the TT up to?
« on: September 06, 2013, 10:40:56 PM »
Could someone who's taken delivery of a new TT SE in the UK in the last month or so please post up the last 6 digits of the VIN. My dealer's trying to sell me one of the shop floor but having been bitten by the Explorer cream cheese head issue with an 'in-stock' bike I want to see how long he's likely had this one laying around.

Many thanks.

Wow, read by 69 people so far but not a single reply...

Not a huge number but I wonder what conclusion can be reached from this?

None of the 69 live in the UK?
None of the 69 recently bought a TT SE?
None of the 69 could be bothered to answer?

Hm... I wonder which  :008:

Well, thanks to the 69 for reading it at least  :153:

Hi Dave,

I read your Post - I read all of them, including any updates,
but usually only add comments if I think I can contribute. 

Here's my conclusion(s) :

The question was only posted 3 days ago, and 69 "reads" -  WORLDWIDE, isn't a huge amount.

I can imagine that your priority may have been to find the answer,
so you could progress the potential purchase over the weekend,
you should appreciate that anyone with a Trophy ( new or not so new )
is more liklely to have their priorities on being out riding it during the weekend,
than spending time on these Forums !
I haven't answered your question as I don't have a new Trophy - mine is Launch model,
so my VIN number is of no use to you whatsoever.

I imagine that the other 68 readers also don't have the information you have asked for,
and these will include a variety of Forum members ( and non members ? )
who also don't own a Trophy yet, but are still interested in reading your question ,
and any subsequent replies.
( Sorry - your "read" number may go up now because of this response ! )

Best advice I can come up with is not to get frustrated at other Forum members,
I'm sure one of them will help WHEN someone that has the answer reads your question,
and instead try asking the Dealer - who should know the precise answer to your question !

Their response may well help you gauge whether to entrust your hard earned £££'s with them
for the purchase and any subsequent servicing  :028:

Hi Dave,

   :431:

 Same as Cocnut I'm afraid :  I read the post but would be no use to you as mine is an Oct 12 bike.

It's OK fella's I understand how these things work and I've clearly given the wrong impression already. My second post wasn't out of frustration it was meant to be a slightly amusing way of bumping the thread. Sorry for giving the wrong impression.

I read your post also, but am waiting on pulling the trigger on a TT until I see if they've got the bugs worked out for 2014.  SO, I'm following your post with interest, and I'll help you shamelessly bump it back to the top.   :158:

Or it could be that some members are like myself, very privacy minded and not inclined to share any portion of their VIN.
