Thanks for the update. Picking mine up on Thursday. Fingers crossed it will be fine.
Good luck, I hope you're going to post pics in the image gallery when you get the chance
Thanks I will post pics once I have had it detailed at the end of the month. I’m going to be driving it dirty for a while to see if it drives ok so no pics in that state :)

I'm wishing you good luck and fingers crossed for a roo-free Thursday (even though it is ridiculous that such rituals should apply to collecting a brand new car) :| .

Thanks :-) I’m looking forward to it but at the same time very nervous since I’ve just sold my existing car to Arnold Clark. So I would be stuck without one if I rejected.

Yep, the inconvenience is a tricky issue but stay optimistic; VW should, after all, be getting it right by now ;)

Thanks. I will be the one driving it home but my hubby will be the main driver since he works further away and drops me off at work. I will be taking every opportunity to drive it though. :)

Maybe you should think of changing your forum username ... how about Tigermaid for you and Tigerman for your hubby, then you can both post your own comments and impressions and we'll know who likes what and who doesn't :lol:

I think you'll both love the car and the odds of getting a Roo free car are probably in your favour despite the doomsayers.

Got clarification from VW today. Turns out there is a new update and it has been released but supposedly the issue is that it’s released in German first, then needs “translated” for English. This is an oversimplification but as a software dev myself, I understood what he meant. He says it will be released for T-Rocs in the UK imminently but as usual, could not provide a specific date.
Just had a call from my vw dealership to say they have applied the software patch to my t-roc and will be doing a cold start test tomorrow. Fingers crossed. If it's successful I'll see if I can get the sw version and post it here

Oh dear, I'm expecting my new Design 1.5 petrol Manual to be here in 2/3 weeks.
I'm not looking forward to it.
Not good, should be excited!
