wow got quite a fair bit of diff... is it worth the diff in price to get the higher end one??

This question only you can answer for yourself. I got the eqp version and I would say yah worth it, but my friend got the non-eqp because he felt he could live w/o the extra features so it was not worth if for him.

Hi Bro

 

Just to check, from comparison, looks like the diff between Comfortline & Comfortline EQP are:

1.keyless engine start

2.keyless entry

3. smart key

 

Can ask agent to add and pay for the above features?

 

4. Remote boot release

5. Electric tailgate

6. driver electric seat

 

Can the above be done after market? Anyone done it before? [confused]

 

Thank you.

I know of workshops that does aftermarket Electric Tailgate/Remote Boot Release, and also 360 degree parking camera. But have not come across any who can do Electric Car Seat (to me it’s a pointless feature anyways)

Have so far resisted to install the tailgate as some have rightly pointed out abt waranty issues.

EQP no auto park?

No autopark. I think many of us park faster manually than relying on autopark. All round sensors or camera is a much better option, but not available on EQP

Has the VW gearbox issue been resolved???

This review posted by a loner911 in 8/2018 is very scary. Not sure if it is true. Would be excellent if he could come in to elaborate:

 

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Review

Owning it for 7 weeks with 1100km on the odometer, the DSG struck. Car been jerking so bad and at times goes half clutch. Towed back to VCS and found no issues. Did a software reload, drove home and immediately the problem came back. Got worse instead with gear grinding badly, car lost power, and suddenly surge forward. Not sure about the reliability of this car is able to last beyond 1 year. Probably it's a part and parcel to be stranded by road side in a Volkswagen

 

What I like

- handling is superb

- very fuel efficient at 14km/L

- ease of getting in and out of car due to wide door opening

- 5 isofix seats

 

What I do not like

- DSG reliability, seriously avoid at all cost! What salesperson claim that issue solved is a mystery, it's a lie to me.

- car rattled badly inside.

- no option for electric seat. Difficult to switch between Wife and myself driving position.

Would you keep it if you can afford to take the financial hit for such a new car? To me is a matter of opportunity only.

 

You should just ask if all is well after the parts change by VCS haha.
