I do wonder what it may be like to work in customer services for VW.

On the one hand, there's probably some very pushy customers and probably some quite rude ones too.

Although they must have fun at times fobbing customers off with any old tripe.

Rude? That would have been me the other day when they told me that they couldn't provide any documentation for how the HK menu functions worked.

My previous Golf (1.4 GT Edition), the alarm wouldn't stop going off, it had been going off for around 8 days 24/7, so they asked me to bring it into the nearest dealership, who said "they can't do anything for a few weeks", and advised I have a coffee and call the AA to come in and deal with it, who told me to tell the dealership only they have the software to turn off the alarm.

Useless would be an understatement sometimes when it comes to any kind of customer service :grin:

I just went back the next day after thinking someone would torch the car if it didn't shut up, gave them the keys, and told them I'm not taking it back until it's fixed, four weeks it took.

The all black spoiler definitely isn’t a thing then.

Which is weird as the configurators on European be sites clearly show it, but might be a paid option in some markets

Looks a bit strange with just the 45 floating on its own.

Maybe its the perfect car for Scott Redding.

If I was having a number on my car it definitely would be 46  :whistle:

What is it with the decals, the black ones? Are they not actually decals? I’m sure the ed40 in black had grey decals so you could see them.

If you look at the normal clubby on the configurator, if you choose black, the side decal is still black. Which is pretty lame.

Yeah. Thanks Fred. What I meant was is it actually a decal? If so, not sure why they wouldn’t replace it. Odd.

Yes I think the skirt decal is there but just black on black...
