Hi, everyone I know this is only my second post but I think the time has come to lease a Scat Pack. My son’s out of college, so we don’t have that payment. Anyways, I’ve waited a long, long time, and now unfortunately they don’t offer B-5 Blue anymore and there are very few left (next to none). Sounds like the B5 is will only be offered on the Demon for 2018. However, I did find one B5 Blue Scat Pack (2016) in my area I am planning on leasing. It has the leather group,SPAG, the black hyper wheels, A8. But the one big thing is; it’s missing the Driver convenience group with the remote start, which is important since I live in Michigan. It would be nice to have remote start on those cold mornings. So my questions toyou experts are:
- Can the dealer install a factory remote start? The dealer wants to put and aftermarket one in. I don’t want an aftermarket one, we put one on my son’s car and it was nothing but problems, one headache after another.
- The vehicle does have the uconnect, can I start it with that even though it doesn’thave the remote start? Any down side to doing that with uconnect?
- Any other down side to not have the driver convenience group, I know it wouldn’t have the cross car detection, but I think I can live without it, I think.
- The dealer won’t give me lease prices over the phone, they say I have to go to the dealer to get that. I'm sure it’s probably a high pressure sales tactic, but none the less I don’t like it and I never heard that in my entire life of car buying, seems odd. What’s your take on that?
