    Maybe it's the firmware or software, but we've watched Harry Potter all the way through with no stoppages.

    Not a problem in the T6. There's no DVD player!

    DVD player? That's almost as old fashioned as a manual gearbox!

    CD, MP3 etc: as well.
    Doesn't depend on Cellular signal, data speed etc: just works.

    1. 240v flap outside. Can it not be magnetic or something? Many a time glance in near side mirror to find it waving at me in the wind at 69mph on motorway.
    2. Electric latch side door whirring into action when popping out in early hours for a wee - then the wife follows and it whirs again!
    3. Worst can/bottle holders ever (T5) if you happen to have change in holder as well. Rattle, rattle, rattle!

    But we love it

    I bang my head every time I look in the safe on the corner of the wardrobe. ‍♀️
    I did it again tonight whilst loading wine in the safe ready for French meet.
    Don't mention coals and Newcastle.

    Here’s one for you. On a +50k vehicle couldn’t VW spend just a little more and on the RH drive versions and put the DSG gear position indicator on the right hand side of the gear leaver. On the LH drive versions the driver can actually see the gear position! As it is when going from P to D you have to lean over to check. I know it appears on the display but not straightway.

    Not on mine they aren't. Checked with an Infra red Thermometer. as @Loz says - 15 minutes, just the same as the Heated Rear Window.

    I think there is an app for that if you have the Discovery Media Plus?

    Does the T6 have one touch for the passenger seat electric window switch?

    Checked mine tonight using the slightly less accurate MK1 right hand rather than an infra red thermometer, after an hour and a half driving the mirror glass was somewhere between very warm & hot, theres no way that it had switched off after 15 mins.
