  1. Hello All. My 2018 mk7.5 goes in to a main dealer for its first year service shortly. Is anyone aware of any firmware that the dealer should be updating or any that I should request if they do not? For example, I did read recently that Millsn said that a steering software update is available on the mk7.5 I do have a couple of issues that I'll mention to the dealer that might be resolved by a firmware update to the Discover Media infotainment unit: First, is an infrequent\intermittent blank screen that comes up on the infotainment unit during use; and Second, when my phone is connected via CarPlay, phone calls intermittently go dead after being connected for about a minute or so (No such issue when the phone is connected by Bluetooth). Thanks in advance.
  2. Hi. JP. I’m over in West Yorkshire and would appreciate it if you could send me the driving route too. Thanks in advance.
  3. I ordered mine 14th March. It arrived in Emden on 26th April. I was told by VW chat on Saturday that it’s on the ship for Grimsby but they couldn’t confirm ship’s name until Monday. I used marinetraffic.com and found the Malacca Highway vehicle carrier is currently moored in Emden and its ETA Grimsby is Tuesday 15th May at 18:00 local time, so it will probably set sail tomorrow. Hopefully those of you who ordered their car around same date as me and expect their car will go to Grimsby should get some good news soon. [emoji4]
  4. Hello folks... I am planning to buy a Disklok for my mk7.5 which is due soon. I expect that ‘small’ is the correct size. However would someone be good enough to confirm, or measure the diameter of the steering wheel from outside edge to outside edge. Thanks.
  5. Your Pandora alarm is interesting... I’m expecting my new car next month and looking at security options and was thinking of auto watch ghost plus maybe Disklok. The pandora immo tag sound a good solution for anti carjack or if they break-in to take keys. Are you in the UK? I ask because I thought systems that shutdown the car automatically weren’t allowed here. Which model pandora alarm did u go for? Would u recommend it over the aw ghost immobiliser? Thanks.
  6. I ordered on 15th March. I have had three different confirmed build dates given: Dealer w/c 16th April Live chat w/c 23rd April App w/c 30th April So hopefully I might get it by the end of May but may be early June.
  7. Thanks for the quick reply. Ah, I’m based in West Yorkshire so will try my local dealer again. They were telling me vw were quoting 12-17 weeks! [emoji47]
  8. Hi Nick. Welcome to the forum. Great spec. It’s interesting to hear you were advised of June delivery. I contacted my local dealer early last week to order almost same spec, under the scrappage scheme but was told it wouldn’t be here before end of June so they wouldn’t take a factory order. Which dealer are you using? I’m thinking there may still be a chance for me to order mine. Thanks.
