DSG. The infotainment system needs to be updated by the dealer though, keeps freezing.

Nice, is that black? Do you have issues cleaning it and easily visible marks/scratches etc

Black = dirty quickly. I will say that the paint finish isn't incredible and sometimes has swirl marks etc., but when clean, looks pretty damn good.

I think the best colour for the Mk7s is dark grey or white...

Does it have NZ Navigation? I assume it's a jap import, seeing the lack of euro plate holder and ACC/Bi-Xenons. Talk to the guys over at Eurosurgeon to get updated software.

^ It does now, it was all fixed by the dealer. They updated the software and gave us NZ maps too.

Yep, it's an import. The selection was an NZ one which had 18in wheels and reversing camera, or the Jap one (which was $3k cheaper) which has ACC, lane assist, euro tails, light package, bigger entertainment unit etc. much more kit.

There appears to be one mark from a stone chip or something, very small.

But yes, scratching these would be a painful experience.
