OK, so I got the dealer to drop on the price because upon delivery VW forgot to include the windblocker. Of course the little bird on my shoulder is screaming "discount!" or supply me the windblocker. There were only two Eos's on the lot and they wouldn't take the blocker out of the other unsold Eos because it is a V6 DSG and mine is a 2.0T, nor order me one. So they came off the price with the value of the blocker (about $500).

Now that you know the fun background, my question is where can I find a windblocker at a decent price (if possible). Well, actually, is it really worth it? Has anyone tried it with and without to see the difference? I found a website that has them for about $490.00, but I like my money too much to buy it without knowing I will love it.

Your thoughts please!

where do you store it when you are not using it? am i right thinking it goes in the boot when the roof is up?!?!
Similar question: Can you leave the windbreak in position with the roof up? Or operate the roof with it still in position?


I decided to email VW corporate this morning. They sent me an automated reply that I would get a response in 2 days or so from a rep at the headquarters... I provided my VIN and explained that I think I should have the rear windblocker included with my Eos.


I get a call from corporate... the dealer sales manager for my city... and a message from my salesman... all within 10 min of eachother. The manager said he got a call from corporate and was instructed to issue me a rear windblocker free of charge. Corporate said all Eos's sold (I assume everywhere but could be just US) are standard for the rear windblocker.

I'm going to pick it up today after work.

SO.... if you don't have one... give corporate a call or email. I am very impressed by the customer service of corporate. My dealer was horrible, but they will do whatever the big boss says I suppose!

Thanks for all of your input and suggestions!

Wow, top result. Nice one :D
