    Picked up car as planned and very pleased. Definitely has more “get up and go” than the 1.4 we had before.

    In the “Shop” function you can Alexa (done) and it looks,like you can add auto light dipping for no cost as well. Also make sure you phone lead they give you in USB-C. Got given a USB-A one which I will have to get changed

    Here are some photos

    Looks good in the black. Has a nice blueish purple ting in the sun I wasn't expecting!

    I bought a 1.5 150 Life dsg, ETSi, Lime Yellow the week before the lockdown. This doesn't have the folding mirrors but are available on the dealer options list. I went for the 150 hp as anything lower powered than this doesn't come with independent rear suspension. Interior is a massive difference to the Mk7/7.5, and virtual dials are really good. Took me a couple of weeks to work my way around everything as there re no physical buttons and working your way round the touchscreen takes a while to get used to it. I think the car is brilliant compated to the mk7, quieter, smoother and more refined.To the gentleman who posted about high beam assist, this is free for one month in the shop then you have to pay for it. Folding mirrors come standard on Style editions, but optional extra on Life variants.

    Thanks for clarifying this, Pinocchio. I don’t thinK the original brochure / pricelist made this clear (unless I missed it.....). But I now see there’s a new brochure / pricelist (dated 25 June) which makes clear that the Style has:

    Electrically heated, adjustable and foldable door mirrors with memory, including automatic dimming function on driver’s side, door mirror puddle lights and reverse activated kerb-view adjustment on passenger’s side.

    Thanks also to Pinocchio and johnsimcox for your helpful comparisons between the 1.5 Mk8 and the previous 1.4 Mk7.

    I am guessing that the new brochure is for the 2021 model year. In a normal year Audi changes it model builds around Week 20 (mid-May) so VW is probably the same. This year they are probably restarting the factories with new model year. There is another post on here saying folding mirrors would come for my21 so that also tallies. Only issue now is how long it will be before any my21 cars actually appear as production is nowhere near normal levels

    FYI. The mats for the Mk8 are the same as for the mk7 and 7.5.

    Running round town, i am getting about 43mpg. Did a 95 mile round trip and car was saying 54mpg, not bad condidering it's not run in. BTW the start stop engages much more readily than my mk7 did,engine cuts out as soon i take my foot off the accelerator.

    The eTsi is a mild hybrid so is able to freewheel with the engine off but essential items such as power steering, brake servo and ac being run by the 48v battery. This is why the eTsi engine can only be had with the DSG gearbox. Have this in my A6 and it seems to work very well
