This is interesting. I have yet to take delivery of my car, but I did NOT get the tech package. (HUD looked cool, but I live in Colorado where we replace windshelds every other year due to cracks and chips...expensive...yadda yadda...)
Anyway, I just punched in my VIN and I see the following:
S6WAA INSTRUMENTENKOMBI. M. ERW. UMF. Instrument cluster, expanded equipment
Doesn't this seem to indicate that I have the extended instrument panel even in the absence of the tech package?
