Good review.

I did like the wagon and gave it a serious think. My wife was like no way, not happening, but I thought they were cool. Then when we saw them in Germany, she said oops, we might have made a mistake as the wagons really are very nice.

They grow on me more every time I see one.

Too many
The wagon is a sleeper, even with all the pops and bangs! Can't wait until mine is broken in.

So on the sedan I have ambient lighting that lets me select from a bazillion colors but that's all. Is the wagon different? Doug shows some color modes that I don't see.

Or is this a firmware upgrade I don't have yet?

Seems like it was a mid year refresh and it's not clear yet whether it is a firmware upgrade or whether new hardware is required.

My sedan has the same features he showed. Its build date was 10/10/17.

When I picked it up at the factory in Germany, I was told during my orientation that the updates had occurred a few weeks earlier. So probably somewhere around third week of September.

There are also some choices that only show up if you check or uncheck boxes in the lighting menu.

Tires?

He is a goofy funny guy, I love his facial expressions while driving it. I'm hoping that the Continental tires on this wagon are snow tires. I told my dealer that I would not take delivery of any car with Continental tires. Continentals and New Orleans pot holes do not mix. My Audi S6 and my daughters VW GLI went through a whole set (each car) and some bent rims. Didn't have an issue after I switched to Michelins.
