35 posts in this topic

Best way to get the silver ashray is to order the R32 one.

The most significant change to the 06 model is that the steering rack issue is solved.

To save a brand new thread.

Does anyone know where the position of the extra pair of speakers VW decided to take out was?

Not a great deal really, off the top of my head it's:

<ul type="square"> [*]Slightly darker dash colour

[*]Black ashtray instead of silver

[*]Beesting aerial instead of in rear screen

[*]Different door handles

[*]Different design front fogs

[*]Silver radio knobs

I think that's about it

During model year 06 a few other things changed as others have said.

Dimming mirrors reduced to only one.

Steering rack difference.

later cars that ordered MFSW got Highline free earlier 06 cars got cruise.

and a few other things.

Interesting! I don't mind most of the changes and how it effects me (for example the increased anount of black in the cabin is a bonus to me) but discounted speakers ! boo hoo!
