When I asked why, the salesman advised it was a dealership decision to order stock with the CD - otherwise you can special order.
It will be interesting to see whether they are forced to change their mind by demand.
The CD player and consequent loss of the bin and tray, plus the black, black, black trim and headlining were things we didn't like about the new model.
We definitely didn't like the loss of the tailgate central locking button that you could touch as you were at the back of the vehicle to lock or unlock.
When I commented to the salesman we regularly used this at the shopping centre when returning with groceries to the rear door, he said - "well you just use the remote or walk to the drivers door and touch the handle". New owners won't miss it but present WK2 owners certainly will.
I'm not so far convinced to rush to upgrade - but the 8 speed and 184KW/570nm might be OK.
