Well happy apart from stance, payed for it to be lowered, but I just can't see it. Taken it up with VW at the moment.
Picking up next week, can't wait :D

Very nice bud, good choice of colour, it works well on the Caddy.
Front looks like it's a tiny bit lower than standard, rear not so much.

VW contributed £850 + vat, as previous customer.

Yea added £2,500 in extras, soon adds up. Luckily I can claim for everything otherwise it would have been a no go.

Mines with the "Lowered" option and it looks the same as yours, to be honest it doesn't look much lowered but I have more axes to grind with VW - "The traction control problem" LOL

Yes following your post, and will let you know how mine is when I collect.
Disappointed with the factory lowering deffinately not worth £100, see how I get on.
