It doesn't... as I said it only comes back on if I decide to switch it on.

Even after ignition off/on it still stays off.

If I buy pro do I still need to pay for tokens to use the "apps"?

If you want to use the apps, yes. But with Pro, you can use long coding to perform exactly what the apps do, if that's up your street

Oh, OK. That's the same in the mk 8.
I thought you somehow permanently disabled it so it didn't come on after you switched ignition off and on again.

Same, ~20 weeks for a CS, but until there’s an actual bios week scheduled I assumed that was just speculation

That's the same dealer I used in Gillingham.
I was quoted 20 weeks max for a Clubsport.
In the end it turned out to be 12 weeks from ordering to collection. I was happy with that.

Price, I considered VCDS as more of a 'Professional' tool whereas OBD11 or equivalent better suited for the casual user that will do most of the things that I would require.

I ordered through dtd for first time on Friday 16th April and by the following Friday had been contacted by dtd to run through the spec, then by the dealer (gillingham in Kent about an hour from me) who confirmed it all again (and pointed out the road tax quoted by dtd was wrong which I was expecting), then I got paperwork to sign form them (for gdpr and finance so can get the deposit contribution) then a confirmation letter after deposit taken and an order number (which after pfaffing can see in my vw U.K. as at stage 2)

Only other direct / near direct experience I have is my father ordered a mercedes through them in 2019 but while waiting for build etc merc changed something (withdrew that specific variant for U.K. I think) and he had a choice to start all over agin with a new build date or pick a car already being built to avoid further delay, which he did. I think that was all through that dealer, and it was a fleet one as well.

It didn’t really occur to me - stupid I realise now - to just use the dtd price to haggle with my local dealer (since they would not have to pay a fee to dtd so may still have agreed) or try listers fleet as suggested here.

Apart from all these build week concerns on the vw end it was a lot less hassle than previous dealer interactions I’ve had using dtd. I looked at carwow but wasn’t getting anywhere near the discount

That's the dealer I have via DTD. What lead time did they fell you. I assume. It was a CS45.

Just wondering is there any particular reason why you lads choose OBDeleven over the more traditional VCDS/Vag-Com??

On my 7.5 I just pushed the button so the light went off... it stays off until I decide to re-activate it.

I use 5w 30, as does the dealer. I’m also an old school pedant when it come to oil changes - every 6 months (ish) - probably OTT but peace of mind (sort off)
