      We've got a 2015 Trendline.
      Was an ex factory demo we bought from original owner, so has just about everything on it except the Bi xenon lights and Sat Nav.
      Leather seats are good, as is tub liner, central locking canopy towbar, sidesteps, toureg style twin stainless exhaust. 20 inch mags are a bit much, but it looks good.

      Fitted a nudge bar to add driving lights as the factory units are absolute crap. Have blocked off the parking sensors so it does not go off all the time. Also fitted a kenwood DAB dual din stereo. Has apple and android connections with a fitted reverse camera.

      Very comfy and costs the same to fill as the V8 ute on premium, but goes 600k further.

They fail and allow the aux belt to get dragged into the cambelt. There is a robust kit that works better but the tensioner is still an issue. Diff pinion seals also go and are a bit shit. Discs and pads are a 60k consumable
        Cheers.

        I asked my usually helpful local dealer and former employer, and got nowhere.

            Good to read that these things are pretty normal cars considering the other VW horror stories out there.

              Proper slushbox auto 8 speed, not DSG. Probably diesel gate , but who gives a fuck.
              Lots of minis & mokes including a G13b powered Sports Sedan, a couple of Swift Gtis, a Goggomobil, Porsche 928S, Polo Gti, BMW 540i, a WRX and a few others.

                  Had the service done by a reputable inderpendent VW/Audi/Porsche specialist yesterday. I dropped it off at 0900 and it was ready to pick up at 1300.
                  He did the belt kit along with tentioner and updated the cover. Aside from just a service I asked for new rotors and pads as well as going over the whole thing to see if there was anything else coming up.
                  Nothing really needs doing but he did adjust the shift linkage and replaced an indercator globe that was a little sus.
                  I had made a mental note to ask him about the shifter as it felt a little of to me but completely forgot about it so I was pretty happy he had driven the car and did it anyway.

                  Total cost for parts and labour was $1500. I know I could of done it for less myself but my time is better spent in other places.

                    That's not a bad price at all.

                    $1200-$1300 is a pretty standard price for just doing the timing belt kit/water pump alone.

                            What torque? Seems a little on the low side and I don't recall Dale's dyno being a heatbreaker like Scotts.

                            Hope the DPF&EGR catastrophically failed and fell out at the same time.

                              Ended up at 101rwkw or 86.4AWKW.

                              Will delete other stuff when I have more time.
