    Unfortunately the module installed is the lower version one without DAB tuner...
    It is annoying, finally, that you must pay extra for every single wire is installed rather than standard inside this car...
    Thanks everyone who replied and helped.

    That's been the "VAG Way" for many years - with a few notable exceptions such as pre-wiring for satellite radio in NA cars.

    Maybe the tiny weight saving helps meet the WLTP figures

    I think that was to make it easy to offer the satellite radio as a dealer-installed option.

    Wire costs money!

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.
