Interesting. Mine is a 2020 autobahn in stick and I definitely have the performance monitor.So I picked up a new 2021 DSG Autobahn MK7.5 in the US 2 days ago. Made November, 2020 according to the sticker. So far have had/discovered 2 small issues.
1. There was a loud buzzing/rattling/vibrating noise coming from the passenger side when coming off the throttle at around 2000 RPM and when idle at times. Didn't matter the mode I was in (Eco or Sport, etc.), so I knew it wasn't the Soundaktor. Took it to the dealer today, and they confirmed the noise was there and coming from the fuel and eval lines vibrating the the frame channel. They fixed it by installing some VW "anti rattle foam tape", whatever that is. I Googled around and saw that this was an issue going back years, so what should I make of this? Why would a 2021 car still have this issue, and is it a design issue, as not all cars have it?
2. I noticed I don't have the Performance Monitor option the the "CAR" menu. I don't really need it, but I just remember having it in my 2018 Golf R, so as I was going though the options one by one, it was interesting that it's not there. I thought maybe the GTIs don't have it, but then I read the below press release, and they SHOULD have it. Even in the new MIB3.
"SE and Autobahn models feature a Performance Monitor in the Car settings of the MIB3 infotainment system. The screen shows three dials, which can be toggled through to create your own custom display of readings such as G force, relative PSI, usage of engine power in kW, and engine oil temperature. There’s also a lap timer screen where you can select start and stop and get a readout of stats."
So how could this be? I would think being made just a few months ago (Nov, 2020) it would have the latest software. Anyway, I will contact the dealer tomorrow, but curious if others have this issue.
Lastly, I worry that my particular model was built sloppily. Seems I'm discovering new things every day. I hope these 2 issues don't mean I got a bad car/build.
