Hi, when I got my 2002 passat wagon two months ago, it did not have the new double DIN radio, even though the dealer had told me it had. The dealer told me that they would replace it with the double DIN in a few weeks. He now has the double DIN radio but says the service department has been told by VW not to do the switch since they have had electrical problems on other passat. Something to do with grounding.
Has anybody heard about this ? And what should I do since I really want the new double DIN.
Thanks, Tristan

Re: Replacing single DIN with double DIN (tristan2)

Grounding shmounding. The wiring is the same. Someone is trying to not lose money on the deal.

Re: Replacing single DIN with double DIN (vermeulen)

actually I heard the same thing.
I have a 2001 WE and wanted to put in the double DIN, according to the dealer the wiring is different. To the point that he wante dto put a double din in a new car he was going to sell that only had a single. He could not do it...
