Just doing the very same thing myself now.

I had a biscuit too. Highlight of my week Andy.  :grin:

The full review is great. Love the fact that Thomas talks about normal things like how good the seats are and fuel consumption. Need to know these things as an every day car. Hope you’re enjoying your CS.

I pushed the boat out and had a bowl of cereal!  :grin:

Mind you I’d not long dragged my lazy arse out of bed (night shift).

I’m now watching Nicki Shields introduce the McLaren Artura which looks a mildly more appealing car than the Clubby.
How difficult is it to pick six winning numbers? Can’t be that hard can it... ?

My own Clubby is in rather typical occasional use only at the moment. Waiting for my son to move back out again so I have room to get the car in and out to use it more. I’m getting the dreaded warning messages come up on the dash on and off and can only use it for commuting so it’s getting gently run in rather slowly.
Once I can get the thing in more regular use I’ll post up more thoughts on how it compares to the mk7. Not all of it glowingly positive!

No three zone aircon on the clubby?

WTF?

Edit: Actually our German friend is sort of wrong, well in the UK. Both the GTI and the Clubby in the UK don't have three zone aircon as standard. The three zone comes as part of Winter Pack 2, together with heated rear seats.

Whether or not you need 3 zone in order to control the aircon with voice control, I don't know. Probably don't I suspect.

I’d swap my 3 zone for Thomas’s Harman Kardon any day

UK vs DE spec variations maybe, or early build anomalies

Yeah VW UK the early days.... look at the UK configurator today.... clubby or GTI definitely option ticks for 3 zone.

Wonder if mine will have it..... its not listed on the options list as a paid for option.
