Definitely, but if cost cutting with the boot floor.
When is your car due at the dealer?
Only option if the leather turns out to be standard seats will be to swap it for Akrapovic 👍

Only thing I disliked when I test drove the car was the gear knob, much uglier than the Golf R (7.5) version, I’m not really looking to start modifying the car but one of these may be added https://blackforestindustries.com/colle ... hift-knobs

Any day (hopefully!) It arrived in the UK last Friday. The Akrapovic was pretty much the only option we didn't get - Just couldn't bring myself to tick that box at the price!! (Didn't have it on the previous Golf R for the same reason!)

Looks like all the videos are correct and if leather is specified the seats change to the S Line version so have removed it from my order and added the Akrapovic, seems crazy to me to change the seat type, dealer is also very surprised and mentioned after my correspondence looks like VW will have to amend their brochures!

Scrapped the Akrapovic as it added 9 weeks to delivery!
