Looks like after dealers kept saying NO Launch Control for Canada, we will be getting Launch Control! Dealers kept saying no LC to me but after a trip to the VW Dealer today and I brought it up and that I had the TSBs with me, they said they will be adding it.

As stated in the TSB VIN range _____1K_7W000000 - _____1K_7W064999 with Transmission code 02E can be flashed to support launch control.

Finally got the info after going to the dealer to find out my sales guy no longer works there but was taking my calls as if he did :\

Sweet. You'll love it. My VIN was in between that range and I got mine fixed. Wonder why the canadians were holding out?
Not too sure, the Dealer seemed to be under the assumption it was a legal issue, but I guess it was just the same thing here that they hadn't added Launch Control to the first 64,999 cars capable of it. (assuming the # are sequential for vehicles)
