Hi all. New to all this but picking up V6 TDi Altitiude on Tuesday in Diamond Black with parking sensors.


I know about the off-road day but what else should I make sure I get? What's with the torch I have read about? Anyone help between now and Monday night?

Great choice of motor...

The Torch you should ger will be the opposite side to the wing mirror operation, looks very similar, stuck in teh cigarette lighter... 'Should' be one of these...

Ebay torch linky

You should also get a bottle of oil in a pouch for the boot, and make sure yoru air compressor is in the boot too....

The little toch is brilliant, small and very bright, can see why they don't make it onto the forecourt or second hand market...

Good luck and enjoy

My dealer was adamant you don't get one. Yes I've seen it on the spec sheet but I couldn't be bothered starting to accuse someone of nicking it! Not sure what I would use it for anyway!

...............when you need to find something in the dark............

It should be there, its a nice (original) bit of kit, the dealer should supply.

End of story!

The standard thing is the plastic plug with 12V written on the top. Or are we saying that the dealers cunningly steal the torch and plop these locally sourced items in instead?

I bought the torch for ?15, and the bottle of oil at my last visit.

But I did get a VERY good price for the car - I prefer that to the dealer buying me presents.

I've asked this before - dealer tells me the 12v thing is standard, some people on this forum and the spec sheet for the car say you should get a torch. The general feeling is they get nicked, my impression is that there is an oversight somewhere in VW and the cars don't come with them anymore.
