Aaah dealers....
Mobile phone goes:

"hello just checking you're still coming in on Monday for your Polo second service"
"No, I don't have that car any more"
"Oh right, just for our records did you sell it?"
"Yes"
"ah right, can I ask who to?"

"you...."

Pretty much every year I get a reminder through the post from my dealer telling me my car is due for its service after they’ve actually done the service. Their internal processes don’t seem to be very joined up.

With the road recognition, will they cruise slow for bends? I see you've traffic sign recognition too...can you set the cruise to obey the speed limits?

Yes it slows down the car for bends with the cruise on,yes the cruise also can detect the traffic signs and slows down to the speed that the A5 camera and map see.

An awesome bit of kit!!!

Which car is that, that has a 7 speed DSG?
My Gti only has 6 gears, it could absolutely do with a 7th to make cruising less droney/frantic.

fair enough but the question was:
Which car is that, that has a 7 speed DSG? And come to think of it, the Polo 1.0 TSI uses a dry clutch 7 speed too.
