  1. The complaints about the infotainment system in this review and others are a bit excessive, it's not to everyone's taste and I had the same issues initially, but after about 3 weeks of having the car I got used to it and I prefer the sleek look of the cockpit much more now - even at night when you can't even see some of the buttons!
  2. A thorough wash to clear up all the grime built over Christmas, the car is now glistening in the sun! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. It’s thoroughly good that everyone gets to experience the heated steering wheel regardless of options. I think it’s more a case of the contact who sold me the R didn’t know what was standard or not at the time. [emoji2357] Mind, I couldn’t even get a definitive answer for what the Pro Nav offered above and beyond the standard Nav. Suffice to say I didn’t opt for that in the end.

  4. Really?! I wasn't told that when opting for that option in the showroom - which turns out I was clearly I was misinformed about! The heated seats are helpful for the leather I guess, but the heated steering wheel sold me on the Winter Pack at the time. 😅 😅😅
  5. That's a great spec! New cars tend to heat up quite quickly in any case but the the heated steering wheel is a great feature I'm glad I went for on my build.
  6. Agreed. The haptic controls take some getting used too but overall I like the balance struck in the cockpit between form and functionality.
  7. Awesome photo, I have the same HUD set up.
  8. I’ve had the R coming up to 6 weeks now and the number of info system related issues has been quite surprising. The most common one is not having any sound system/music coming out of the speakers, rectified with a re-ignition of the engine but not handy if I’ve just started a long drive. Also the yellow warning light for the front sensor highlighting limited functionality has appeared several times in the past few days but it’s been working fine. Mechanically however the car is genuinely a lovely drive!
  9. Was loading some things into the car yesterday and came back to find all windows were down, even though I disabled the convenience setting. Would have been fine if it wasn’t chucking it down with rain! [emoji53]
  10. Driving out of the 24hr car park in Castle Terrace this morning. Great personalised license plate! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. How awesome, what an insane amount of colour options! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. @Booth11 in two minds whether to do it right now, the system works fine and to the naked eye you can't really see it unless you go up close - but that is the exact type of detail which will bug me for months to come 😅.
  13. Not so much a specific MK8 R or even Volkswagen issue but I noticed several dead pixels on the media screen yesterday. [emoji58] I had to replace the screen on my MK7.5 R a couple years back as it had a whole line running through the side - thankfully under warranty. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. My build was very similar to that, fingers crossed you will get a result soon! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Indeed, if you're dropping that much cash on a brand new car, then it's more than reasonable to be able to personalise to that level.
