Picked up my R wagon yesterday delighted..

Although it doesn’t seem to have a Reversing camera???

The VIN says it’s a 2019 build and it has the keyless entry as well as some other wltp features..

Very strange

VW have been somewhat "economical with the truth" with the banked WLTP cars, they gave them all a nominal late Jan 2019 "build date" when many were actually built well before that date.  IIRC they also made some running changes to std equipment levels during the banking period.

My R has a drivers grab handle...? Can’t say I remember seeing one in my pre wltp R... is this new or have I just never looked up when sitting in the drivers seat before today?

Not new. My 7R has a drivers grab handle. Never once used though!

Thanks for that.

I ordered mine last November and basically they got lucky as i ordered a panoramic roof ,pretorias , Black rails and mirrors.

I await my reply from my dealer as it was stated it had this as a feature not that i am bothered it doesn’t have it as sensors are better than a camera but it might get me some freebies 😂

Well after weeks of waiting, mine has arrived. Dealer even left it with the wrappers on as they knew it was going straight for a ceramic coating.
