    Technology Pack

    Tech Pack is an optional extra in Ireland @ €699 on R/GTD/GTI Includes Discover Nav, HBA, RVC & Winter Pack. 19’ wheels standard on R also and strangely no choice of 18’ option afaik..

    This has nothing to do with Resale value IMO as these and other Variants are all ‘offered’ to UK & NI customers not to mention all across Europe.! From a sales perspective I wud imagine that VWI must commit to Wolfsburg to sell a certain number of each model for it to be built to ROI spec. What would work is if the ROI shared a common model with the UK and cud simply draw from that pool of cars. However VRT prevents that as higher specced UK cars would mean even higher prices in ROI. It baffles me though why VW Ireland range the Passat Alltrack and the 240 & 280 bhp versions of the Passat, Aerton and Tiguan..... How many of those have you seen on the road..!! Seat, Skoda & BMW Ireland etc. dont seem to have a problem offering more choice of Variants though...

    Which is fine for Seat enthusiasts..... Seat obviously see a market for performance estates and therefore currently have this section of the market to themselves.. Fair play to Seat.!

    Am I the only ROI driver utterly frustrated, perplexed and disillusioned when I drive to Belfast and delight in the diversity and choice available to our Northern Brethern.? Anyone been to Boucher Road? All models, all varients. yet the north is a disproportionate reperesentation of this Ireland Choice... It’s all about Choice..! Something denied us for too long and is more relevant than ever! I Love you all, but let’s tell VW Ireland we demand 18’ wheels, Varients, AND THE THE TO CHOOSE. X Life.

    Will be good to see an Estate on ROI roads.!! Hopefully VW Ireland will begin offering more choice in variants to ROI customers in the near future, very limited currently...

    You can have any colour on the German website but it'll cost approx €2400 Mad to think that CSG is available for the GTE as a normal option though...

    Cadiz Wheel Issue - Advise Requried

    I had exactly the same on 3 of mine after approx 1 year... Warranty manager took photos and sent them to VW. They then replaced the wheels under warranty. I'm sure they'll want to help but obviously VW have the final say. Keep it friendly but make ur expectations clear. Good luck.!

    The cadiz look great in real life and plenty big enough in 18" its being diamond cut thats the drawback!! Looking forward to seeing a few on the road. I wud imagine that the 50 or so that have supposedly been ordered will all be in the country by the 2nd half of the year so shud be quite 'common', all things being relative!!

    The spec is better but still an unusual decision to make 19's standard i feel. Is it not more usual to let the buyer decide if they value the look of the 19" over the trade off in ride comfort and also the extra cost involved for new 19" tyres? Maybe 18" can be specified at a reduced cost?! I'll certainly be enquiring!
