Bi-xenon option with Halogen DRL's not the LED variety:
I've read on a couple of other forums that early UK customers have been picking up their mk VII's with the bi-xenon option and they're NOT equipped with the U-shaped LED DRL's as per the TV adverts, marketing material, Golf brochures, etc, etc. You can imagine, there's a growing number of upset customers on delivery day and thinking, huh? Did I order that? Instead, you get rather ungainly chrome surrounds on the inner lamps.
It looks and feels like another shabby short-changing effort by VW on UK customers. I mean, what the h*ll? Why heavily market a product with a specific feature and then not deliver?
After posting a message to VW UK and enduring a deadly silience, I've had to resort to demanding a straight answer from my dealer. I'd recently placed an order with that exact same option and I'm pretty close to pulling the plug. If anyone else is contemplating a Mk VII with bi-xenon's & LED DRL's for safety and the cool aesthetics, then proceed with caution until someone gives a straight answer.
