Are you sure or is there a reason you've had to wait so long mate ?Missed a 2007 build by 2 weeks (was a build week 20 as far as I know). Don't think I mind any of those too much, the silver bits are nice though. I'll still enjoy mine when I pick it up Saturday =D
I've always though this should be standard on loads of cars, it would prevent a hell of a lot of accidents on motorways. Us Brits are far too wary of using them when slowing down in traffic. On the continent they don't hesitate. I use them a lot too, e.g. when slowing a lot on a motorway as people behind assume you're just slowing a bit.?

Hi Drifty,Hi All,
First time poster - long time lurker.
My GTI is on order and due Sept 1st. Any confirmations yet on the 2007 spec listed above in this thread? or better yet, any pictures?
Cheers - Rob
After weeks of deliberating and tinkering with the spec - I said f**k it and went all in (well almost)Hi Drifty,
Info on 2007 model year changes are as per earlier thread.
Presume 2007 models will be appearing in dealers in next few weeks ( if as per last year ).
Only about 10 weeks to go then, what spec have you gone for ?
I'm still told that the electric folding mirror issue, still needs a SW fix, if they have new software for that then I woul dexpect to get sucha feature in the same release,Not sure if this is a 2007 model year only change but the latest Golf pricelist on www.vw.co.uk shows that Surrounding Area Lighting in the Luxury packs appears to have been replaced by "reverse activated kerb-view adjustment on passenger's door mirror".
It's a shame that you can no longer get Surrounding Area Lighting as I find this is a nice feature but I have to admit, the reverse activated kerb-view adjustment is a welcome addition. When my Mk V was in for its first service I asked if they could enable this feature. I was told it was not possible. I wonder if it would now be possible or whether you require a software update.
Oh yes it is still there - the kerb viewing mirror thing is in addition to 'surrounding area lighting'.
