    Thread: The Official CC Ask a VW Salesperson thread.....

    1. 03-27-2009 12:36 AM #71
      Paul,

      how are sales up in Jersey going for the CC ? local sales advisor told me sales are going well for CC .Asking this due to the following

      I hear the same thing from ordinary people asking what s the name of the car and getting same positive responses. Even at my local Car wash place where there is car enthusiasts not very aware of the CC . Seems not much exposure taking into consideration this is the first year of launch model

      they seem to be good, especially the Sport model, they are hard to get. They are doing a fair amount of advertising on the CC, I see it on TV a lot.

      I just bought a CC luxury and the dealer wanted $600 to add the bluetooth and $125 to add the chrome tips. Edmunds has the Volk at a $285 invoice when factory installed. I got both as part of the deal if they wanted to sell the car.

      a dealer installed accessory will always be more expensive than a factor installed option

      Understandably so.

      Hi Paul,

      Will the 2010 CC have a 5 seat option?

      Nope, not that I've seen or heard. That's what the regular Passat is for.

      The CC is a very nice car but if you're looking to spend 30k you should also check out the Audi A4. That is what I ended up with and couldn't be happier.

      I hope it doesn't have an option for 5 seats. It looks great the way it is. If more people wanna come in the car, stuff them in the spacious trunk.

      Lol, but a Passat is not as good looking.

      Just sucks coming from a 2007 BMW 335 coupe off lease and taking a huge pay cut, I am considering a CC strongly....

      With BMW, I could build the car how I wanted it. Almost every option was able to be ordered individually.

      With the CC, if I want a sunroof, I have to go auto. If I want xenon, I have to go VR6... The same with Nav.... Its pissing me off...

      Current: 2014 BMW X1 XDrive28i
      Past: 2005 Subaru Legacy GT Wagon 5MT - 2004 BMW 330i ZHP - 2002.5 VW Passat GLX Wagon - 2007 BMW 335i Coupe 6MT - 1991 BMW 325ix Coupe - 2003 VW Jetta 1.8t

      Well, you can add Nav easily to a 6mt sport. If you want a roof that bad, there is the Webasto option for $1500. The lights I think you can add seperately as well from OEMPLus.

      And the Webasto option gets you a real sunroof, not a giant glass roof vent.....

      Exactly. A big glass vent didn't keep me from getting a 6mt. If it winds up being so much of a bother, $1500 for a REAL sunroof is worth it.

      How much of a bitch would it be to install the nav from OEMPlus?

      I don't know, I would ask at OEMPlus. Maybe someone has done a DIY.

      The base 'A+' rates are 36 = 0.00041 and 48 = 0.00104 for the VR6 CC's. These are the rates for my region, they may vary across the country, and by your credit rating.

      wow! Looks like I'll be visiting my local VW dealer tomorrow.

      Thanks man

      I just test drove a manual sport model yesterday and I have to say I'm impressed. There were a couple of questions the salesman couldn't answer for me, so I'm glad to see this thread. I hope you can help me out with a few

      1) The car had a phone button on the steering wheel, but no mention of Bluetooth option on the sticker. Is it just a dead button without a Bluetooth option or is there some setup involved to making it do something? I didn't expect it to dial my phone or anything but a display or a chime or something. And since I'm on the east coast, does that mean Volk-L is out of the question?

      2) Assuming plain Bluetooth option, what features can I expect? Voice dialing? Caller display? Audio streaming? Or just the ability to talk handsfree?

      3) Is iPod integration an accessory? Audio streaming over bluetooth, I understand, is very rudimentary ... no control over playlists, track info display, or anything like that. So I'd still like the ability to have a more full-featured iPod integration. Is that an option and, in general, how will that user experience be with music playing and a call comes in? Will the iPod integration and bluetooth play nicely?

      4) Any .pdf copy of the manual available online? I haven't been able to find one.

      5) Should I be worried about the parking brake button? Of everything in the car, that made me a little nervous as far as maintenance. Especially since the fallback is relying on the tranny/clutch to hold the car on hills if it does go out.

      Thanks a lot for any help here!

And since I'm on the east coast, does that mean Volk-L is out of the question?

      - Bluetooth is an option but if no bluetooth is fitted on the car it can be had as an dealer installed accessory. Volk-L can be had in all 50 states


      2) Assuming plain Bluetooth option, what features can I expect? Voice dialing? Caller display? Audio streaming? Or just the ability to talk handsfree?


      Volk-L will do hands free calling as well as bluetooth streaming. check http://govolkl.com/what_is.htm for a list of features, capabilities and compatible phones.

      3) Is iPod integration an accessory? Audio streaming over bluetooth, I understand, is very rudimentary ... no control over playlists, track info display, or anything like that. So I'd still like the ability to have a more full-featured iPod integration. Is that an option and, in general, how will that user experience be with music playing and a call comes in?

      Full ipod integration like you describe cab only be had with the RNS-510 Nav. You can still get a Ipod cable installed by the dealer that will allow you to change the tracks via the radio or steering wheels buttons and switch playlist but thats it. if you use Volk-L and you get a call the radio is muted regardless of mode so you can answer the call. (volkL uses the same speakers as the radio)

      4) Any .pdf copy of the manual available online? I haven't been able to find one.

      NO there isnt one

      5) Should I be worried about the parking brake button? Of everything in the car, that made me a little nervous as far as maintenance. Especially since the fallback is relying on the tranny/clutch to hold the car on hills if it does go out.


      I have yet to see one go bad and we have been using the same system on the Passat since 2006

      So the phone button that's currently there I guess is just waiting to be enabled by an accessory.

      Ok, so there's an add-on iPod cable that can be installed to the non-Nav stereo in the CC, but it will not display any track info? The funtionality I'm used to is Alpine's iPod interface, but I have one of their low end head units.

      Again, thanks for the info!

      There are now two iPod adapters available from VW. The newer 'Enhanced iPod Adapter' integrates the iPod through the Sat Radio, so you can see track names, artists, and control 250 playlists. This is the one you want. Dealers have info on this system and it's capabilities.

      In order to qualify for VW Owner Loyalty you must present a valid registration for a 1999 or newer VW registered at the same address, in your name or an immediate family mamber. Car does not have to be traded in.

      However, at this time the Owner Loyalty program does not include the CC, at least not in the Eastern Region.

      Any news on: "The Passat CC will be available with VW's "Clean TDI" engine beginning in 2009"?

      Don't know who you are quoting, but no, no news at all, don't hold your breath at this point.....
