FyfettBoy's post is informative but relates to this change happening more than 18 months ago. Whatever logical improvements VW have finally made, it doesn't seem to have reached VW Bury (assuming St Edmunds) who proposed the £800 to the OP only last week.

We should remember that there are two common faults with that panel.... 1)the splines on the back of the knob breaking and 2)the display becoming illegible over time. Perhaps that is where the difference lies?
If it is a Complete Replacement Front Panel then that could mean replacement of the Control Knob and buttons + the screen.
We really need more information and a Part Number.

7E7 998 453. Its a replacement for the plastik front and the knob. You can google the part number.

With respect to this point, the part is the plastic fascia of the panel, including the knob and plastic buttons. So it does not help if your display is broken, but does properly fix the broken splines issue (which is where I thought this thread started?).

Part number is 7E7-998-453 "Repair Set". Still got the box and the old fascia.
So I wonder why the Numpties at the OP's Dealership didn't know about this Kit?

Well hidden then. Can see the Complete Control Panel and Replacement Control Knob on its own in "Original VW Parts " but nothing else.
