Having no real problems so far but should I be asking for an update?

Wait and see if you've got problems.

They won't touch anything without you reporting a fault with something...

Besides, the version of software beyond where you are I've heard by all accounts won't help much....

I'm also on 1666.... lets see what Wednesday brings

It seems so. Mine is Kings Red though.
I’m still getting used to the lack of buttons. I liken it to when upgrading from an iPhone 6s to an iPhone 11.
“Where is the home button? ‘

I don't really find the button less design an issue, it's just the buggy software that runs it that drives me mad.

I've been having problems with it keep randomly forgetting my speed limit warning settings and then this week it decided to forget my hk setup.

Ive had one instance of suddenly the road speed warning went/reverted to km.
Tbh my sil set up lots of things for me. I have been pleasantly surprised how I’ve felt so at ease with the car. This w/end I will experiment with the different modes now it’s done nearly 1000 miles.
Miss the quality of the Mk 7 interior though. This one does not seem as durable but time will tell.

Guys, what is the latest software version for the latest hardware?  I'm due to pick up my Clubsport on 1st of July and asked the salesman to ensure it has the latest software before I pick it up...so I just want to know what it should be showing when I receive it...

Thanks
