  1. Evening all, can anyone recommend a trusted tyrefitter or tyre centre in Dublin or Kildare area please?
  2. Wow! 10-15ps is a big drop in power.! Not only are our cars lower spec in Ireland their slower! 😬 Im fairly sure higher octane fuel is available in NI as part of the UK so same market but ROI is not.
  3. 98 Ron fuel not available in Ireland I believe so what would that mean for Irish R's then?
  4. 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..
  5. 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...
  6. 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.!
  7. 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.
  8. 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...
  9. 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...

  12. Where's Vwman when we need him....?
