Could someone please shed some light on this optional extra. Does anyone have this option. Is it hardware or software based or both? If so is it any good. My car is built but im looking at getting this option retrofitted if it can be.

No sorry. My car had already been built. I still like the idea of the online alarm though.

as I understand, if some idiot trys to still the car you will get message throw e mail or mobile phone.

but if it drives away you cant fallow the car and see where it is. so it will only alert that something is going wrong. my problem is that if it happens for example during night, there is a big chance I wont hear my phone

I have this and I quite like it. I can see online lots of info about my car in the CarNet app or online - as the price list details :
Driver and vehicle integration via Car-Net Portal or Car-Net app for: Driving data, Doors and lights, Area alert, Speed alert, Horn and hazard lights, Parking position and Online anti-theft alarm.
Also hardware in the car to provide continuous interaction between the driver, vehicle and Volkswagen, via integrated SIM-card
connectivity. Driver and vehicle integration with Volkswagen call centre or server for: 'eCall' - Emergency call
service for SOS calls to emergency response incl. Automatic accident notification, Car breakdown, Vehicle
health report and Service schedule.

Notifications are provided if the alarm goes off or if a user defined speed limit is exceeded or if the vehicle travels outside a user defined area.

A bit geeky but fun

Fairly insignificant cost relative the the overall vehicle cost, not something I would be concerned about if I keep the vehicle that long
