    I have taken delivery of my Spanish model 150 DSG 4 motion Ocean and I got the following freebies.
    2 x mozzie nets (VW original parts) for the sliding windows. (very good)
    Luggage net for roof. (won't use)
    2 towel rails.
    1 cup holder. (won't use)
    Cupboard lights. (very good)
    The small drawer under the bench seat.
    Climacool window tints. (essential over here, but still need additional heat reflectors)
    Front rubber mats (I also kept the original carpet mats).

    Standard spec's are also different to the UK model but I got the 'business pack' as a freebie which included the upgraded steering wheel with paddle shift and some other stuff that I haven't quite figured out yet.

    The dealer has also arranged for a full set of English manuals.

    New Oceans have a few bit's & bob's thrown in, but they don't really reflect the 3% (November 2016) and 3% (April 2017) increases.

    2018 Beach models over here have benefited from a significant upgrade though. They get a revised and upgraded dashboard with 3 zone climatic aircon as standard. Plus a host of other stuff.

    It's a shame that VW create their options and basic configurations to extract the maximum amount of money from the customer.

    I love the new Ocean and I am sure we will get many years of use from it, but I would have been more than happy with a cheaper Coast model if I could have bought one over here.

    Have to say I've not seen any posts doing it.

    Does you top not have a suitable lip you could position a small LED strip along?

    If you look at 29 secs, it will give you a clearer idea.
