2012 Rising Blue Golf R
APR Stage 3
I googled the booklet for the road and hazard, not only does it not have that much info in it, but the verbage makes it sound like the monetary limits are not per year but for the lifetime of the contract? So if you get the 1200 standard one its not 1200 per year but 1200 for the 5 years?
That may be accurate...I remember the number being a lot higher though. Maybe that is the difference between standard and deluxe?
However, I know whatever I purchased covers cosmetic damage - I had them point it out to me in the documentation.
Of course, once I get home I probably won't be able to find it

I've seen other threads saying that it does cover cosmetic damages but they mention that they got the "Gold" option. Does this have to do with extended warranty?
Just an FYI, I called up the service department and told them the car I have and the situation. Didnt give them a name or vin number or anything to look up which plan I have. They said they would replace the tire due to safety reasons with the gash in it, however the did not ask which plan I had, and said in regards to the wheel if it is only cosmetic damage, it would not be replaced. I dont know if they are just assuming I have the base plan (im not sure which one I have, ill check when I get home) or if the only difference in the plan is the monetary amount allowed for repairs and they both do not cover cosmetic damages?
Look out, sure they'll replace the tire for safety but the question is how much will it cost?
Within a week I backed out of the garage, parked way over, and bumped the side view mirror turn signal. Barely tapped it but it broke the tab that sticks through the trim. IE, little square piece you see the blinker when on. $48 and 1/2 hour time good as new (couple days for the part). Then being a nice guy, let the sales mgr at the dealership take a little test drive. Nice as can be existing the drive, scuffed the front underside. Looking bad because the clear bra turned white but did take a little blue off on both sides. I think I'll remove the clear bra, 3 small strips, touch up and have the 3 little strips replaced. That front is low so I or my wife will likely do it too. That's it, know on wood, other than grandmother and cookie crumbs. How she got those crumbs so imbedded...
I scraped the lower front like others did above. I about cried but I at least got 1000 miles on it before its first scar. I'll probably wet sand it down and use some touch up paint. Good thing is you can't see it with out bending down and looking up at it. I may put some clear plastic 3M stuff there to keep it looking good, especially in the winter.
got hit yesterday. and by hit I mean bumper scuffed when parked. no note, off course.
was running late for a meeting so rather than put my car up in the parking garage as I normally do, I found a spot on the street. the last spot before a stop sign so I figured I only had to worry about 50% of the car.
I didn't notice until this afternoon when I washed the gobs of pollen off the car. big blue paint scuff about 3 inshes tall by one foot long. no creases or deformities in the plastic itself, but took the paint off in a few large places. paint transfer buffed off.
the only saving grace is I have a black car, so the missing paint doesn't stand out too bad.
I also remember the car that was behind me. a MK4 jetta... medium blue. I'll be keeping my eye out a$$hol3.
FYI, though, I don't know what area you are in, but around me, you can get pretty much any wheel fixed for $75-100 depending on the severity. So even if it's not covered you may find the repair is cheaper than you expected.
Just noticed dents/creases on my roof. I have a CSG 4dr with sunroof. If I stand at the rear and look towards the front with the "shark fin" in the middle, I see two identical dents/creases halfway between the "fin" and sunroof, one on left, one on right. Its not all that noticeable and looks like a smear at times, can't even feel it with my hand. Looked at two other GTIs while working, a 2012 Autobahn didn't have it but a GTI w/sunroof did. Both cars CSG.. Think this might be pretty common and more noticeable on some colors than others..
Golf R CSG 4dr Nav/Sunroof
Almost 2000 miles and not a scratch ! While driving to work this morning at 530am I was going down I 35 (Ft Worth TX) about 70 and saw something in the road. I couldn't tell what it was at first but it was in the middle lane so I swerved to the right lane. Then it suddenly moved to the right lane then off to the side of the road. If I would have hit it my car would have been totally jacked up.
What was it? Ummmmm............I think it was a crack head!
((((sigh)))) was backing into a parking space at the mall (as far away from door dingers as possible) and got too close to the curb .... There's a good 8" long around the wheel that is completely ate up.. I'll post a pic later.. I only have 1500 miles... I need a drink.

my car rolled back even with e-brake engaged. it had some scratched that was coming off and looks like another paint sticking to it. I am still lucky as it was so close to smashing a house that is being built. close call. now i want to see if i can check with the dealership because this should not happen with a new car.
