Been bit quiet on the 45 thread. Anyone else receive their cars yet? Any coming through now or people still waiting?

Anyone else seen this? Apparently the standard Golf GTI MK8 in the US will feature two proper physical knobs as part of the infotainment system. 3:54 mins here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tTXCm9YlCQ

Please VW give us that option! Rather than those nasty sliders you can't even see in the dark!
Not all that it seems. Slider bar for temp is removed but without replacement so the only way to alter temp is via ‘clima’ hot key and then adjusting on screen

Golf mk7 / Re: Mk7.5 Buying Advice

Cheers everyone, I feel quite reassured on the matter.

Pan roof is not mega high on my list but would be nice to have.... Main thing is if I find a car that ticks all the boxes, I don't have to rule it out just because it has a sunroof.

Still on the lookout for one that ticks all the boxes as the last one I had my eye on doesn't have DCC, hoping the perfect spec / price combo arrives before I run out of patience!

Time isn't a luxury you have if you're after the perfect spec / price combo, it took my 2 years to find mine which is my perfect spec and good price.

Yes, in other markets there is a different MIB unit with lower power and a smaller screen. This has some physical knobs.

Its not available on any UK Mk8's of any kind though - not even a base Mk8

I've seen pictures of GTI's with those 2 physical knobs before. Some markets in Europe get that unit as standard - its the "basic" infotainment and the screen is also a good bit smaller. Similar to the 7.5 generation units, where the pro-nav lost the physical buttons too.

The US market gets three set levels of trim in the GTI; S, SE and Autobahn - customers don’t have the ability to spec individual options . The only factory available selectable options are on the SE model - black alloys and leather. Each trim level is available either as a 6 speed manual or 7 speed DSG.

It’s only the entry level GTI ‘S’ trim level that gets the two physical knobs in lieu of the non illuminated slider panel, and because the slider panel is deleted, it also loses the ability to adjust the cabin temperature via this slider.

The SE and Autobahn get the same infotainment screen without physical knobs and the same non illuminated slider panel below the infotainment screen as UK models. It looks as if the ‘S’ model loses the ability to adjust the temperature temperature via slider panel.

So VW haven’t decided to reintroduce physical knobs on all infotainment units in the US - it’s only the entry level GTI that gets these, along with a smaller 8.25” screen instead of the knob-less 10” screen in the two higher trim level GTI’s.
