I'm blaming you for the moaning from Mrs G just now.... Have been out and tested it on the drive.

She's not happy, but you are spot on. It definitely does exactly what you said.

I wonder why?

Phew glad I wasn't going mad Fred, I'm finding it strange as it seems on other forums even though not much about the MK 8's and more 7 and 7.5 mentions that all that does is defo speaker sport noise and it pops in just sport mode even the sound on Normal, maybe it's something that has changed on the MK, hope you didn't wake the neighbours 🤣 because mine would have been sick of me with testing, thing is I like that pop which means I need to leave it on to sport, I mean just switching to Eco sound you can hear the normal engine noise better but no pops :(, It's defo a strange one but glad I've noticed it.

I’ve started the process today with drive the deal, will update on here once I have a confirmed date from the dealer. The guy from DTD said to expect 20 weeks.

Ordering: CS, Dolphin, Estorils, HUD, HK, DCC, PA, Rear Camera, Winter Pack (front), Pan roof.

In the end after trying to pick and chose options to keep below the luxury car tax, had a moment of madness and decided you only live once and I’m buying it to enjoy it not because it’s cheap.

Not on mine, seems some software versions it might but not on mine.

So what does the temp revert to?

Does the drivers side retain  the last temperature ?

Never mind paddle extensions, how about paddle warmers?
It’s been bloody freezing at 5am this week and although it’s lovely having a nice warm wheel to hold, the paddles are positively ice cold!

Additionally, neither does the heated wheel setting.  The manual says that you hold it down to get it to remember the setting but mine just switches to the next level in the cycle and then still kicks in at level 3 upon the next start-up.

It definitely doesn't on mine, either.  Neither does the Rear setting.

Here's one I have been trying to replicate.... somehow I managed to get the climate screen up on the mib by pressing SOMETHING on the steering wheel.

Interesting.... but how on earth did i do it?

Heated steering wheel button? I've actually been doing this method as soon as I get in as a different way to 'sync' the climate.
(quickly after the Brocky lane assist method)
Dont know why but find the mode and clima buttons hard to press whilst on the move.

Does the sync not hold from when you were previously in the car?

Oh you could be right about the heated steering wheel button!

And yes all of the buttons on the screen and under it are too far away. That's why they are hard to press accurately.

Maybe the only testers vw had was Mr Tickle?
