Hi
I have a new EOS comming for 1st March with DSG box

On a USA site I read that the test car had no paddles with the DSG, as I have not specified a multifunction wheel,does anyone know if it will have paddles on not?

DSG Paddles

Geedee,

I've ordered the MFSW with paddles for my Eos 2.0T DSG - you'll see from the UK brochure that there are 2 optional MFSW's - one with and one without the paddles. It seems therefore that you need to specify and pay the extra to get the paddles - it's £240 from memory.

It might not be too late for your dealer to amend the order if it's not due till March - worth a call and persevere if he says it's too late - mae sure he checks !

Thanks, unfortunately the car is built so it looks like I have dropped a clanger !!! at leat I remembered the cruise control.

From experience, with both my own Merc with auto, and my wife's ex Audi A3 with DSG and paddles (which came a s standard) I rarely used either the paddles or the Merc's manual option.

It would have been nice to have the option though...

Missing Paddles

Hi
My new Eos Sport TDI with DSG was delivered yesterday, I had ordered it with the Multifunction paddle steering wheel £240, and when the dealer processed the ordered to VW,they ordered the MFSW for DSG box, but when it arrived the paddles were not fitted.
I contacted VW Customer Care to inquirer if the correct wheel with the paddles could be retrofitted at a later date, but was informed that it would not possible to do.
A bit disappointing after waiting six months for delivery to find out that my order had gone wrong somewhere between the order I signed and what was delivered.
As a result the dealer did not charge me for the wrong MFSW, but it has taken a bit of the shine of my new EOS purchase, don't know if I will miss the paddles, time will tell.

Sorry to hear about your misfortune with the wrong steering wheel. I think you are very patient with your dealer, as I am sure I would have told them to sort it out or not accept the car.

The TDI with the DSG is a very good combination, and is the same as my wife had on her A3 sportback, although we have gone for the TFSI this time.

As I mentioned, we did not use the paddles very much at all, so please keep us posted as to how you get on with your new car.

Let us hope we are all able to enjoy the joys of open air motoring in 2007.
