Folks. It seems like there‘s a few 204‘s now with a build date. Some however, don’t. I suspect that most of those that don’t, fall into the category of ‘too heavy’ given the new additional engine weight. Some people have been asked to change their spec so that they fall under the weight limit And speaking with VW chat today they confirmed this but what they couldnt confirm were those configurations which would be affected. I’m going to try and work out what the potential pit falls are. If you could post your spec, order date and proposed production date, I might be able to put together the information which VW are struggling to provide i.e. which vans need spec adjusted.

Here’s mine to start:

Main weight adding options will be a physical item, such as .

Tow Bar
80ltr fuel tank (this was dropped from commercial vans when Adblue tank added, van payload is usually financially critical to buyers.

Wheels shouldn't make any difference - no spare included with18" option would offset any added wheel/tyre weight gain.

Towbar fitment after delivery would get around adding this weight but would reduce what can be loaded before Maximum weight reached.

T32 option would solve the issue. T30 is Cali normal.
Many EU Countries have the the T30, 3 tonnes, as a change of Taxation etc. category point. UK has 3.5 tonnes

Sounds like the culprit could be the 80l fuel tank. Sounds like VW are looking to remove the option from the California.

similar spec to Dark Ocean except Sage Green

I don’t mind loosing bigger capacity tank just mans you need to fill up more often but Tow is essential as we will be pulling our caravan with it.
