    You really can't build a GTI other than picking the trim, transmission, and adding the odd accessory. The trim determines everything you get unless you want to add a cargo net, for example.

    Did you order this or was it a car on the lot?

    I still don't get how you've been driving for a month and didn't notice the headlights. Like have you not driven at night yet? (which could totally plausible in the summer, but its dark at 430 in the afternoon these days.

    I drive at night every day, just never had HID lamps before and thought I just couldn't tell the difference at first.

I guarantee you they will make it right, and do it very very quickly. In 90% of cases, all it takes is a letter on the letterhead of a lawyer to show them you are serious and cannot be waved away. If you need the contact information for a good lawyer, PM me. I know one who has actually taken VW up on an issue many years ago and the owner got 6 free lease payments from VW as a "courtesy" while they were sorting out the issue with the dealer. Funny coincidence, the car in question back then was a GTI 337 edition. .
    Give everyone that lawyer's name! Because most would ask for a retainer of $2,500 to $5,000 up front with no promise of success.

    OP, I think you're mistaken, unfortunately. I believe standard feature only applies to top portion of that Web page, and those features described by the 4 photos are options.

    For example, the brakes shown in 1 of the photos are brakes from the performance package. Performance package is not a standard feature on any trim GTI. So using this logic, the LP lights are not standard feature.

    PP and LP are both standard features for the SE. Prior to 2017 they were options.
