The D variant hardware was used from build week 48 in 2020 onwards.

The B variant hardware is used for both Nav and Navpro.... on the D ones, there is a different part number for NavPro.

Interesting, it seems like my GTI (due to arrive next week, yay!) was built in the first quarter of this year (February I think), so hopefully that means I can get the navigation into the dash too.

Thanks, I tend to look beyond the 'obvious' choices regarding solutions to car issues, (says a bloke who now drives a Golf, lol) - unless the obvious clearly is the best option.

From the off it's been a car I respected more than fully connected with, but changing/tweaking things here and there has given it a little more personality/made it more 'mine'. Things like flipping the interior mirror and fitting a home-made clutch stop are typical.
 
The great advantage in owning such a popular car is the wealth of information/back-up available on Golf-specific forums like this - although inspiration for the new wheels came from an EV forum concerning Golf GTE's of all places... 

This last week I've shed all of 675g from the nose of the car by removing, (just temporarily) the airbox feed duct - only to then add 692g at the rear by fitting the infamous Harmonic/Balance Damper within the rear subframe.

Hi All,

Rather than making lots of separate posts of parts for sale I will add them all to this thread as I start advertising them.
Next on the list is an early fusebox with relays and fuses removed from the car in the title. I'm looking for £100.
