Looks like only two 2021 Cornflower Blues remain in the U.S., one at VW South Charlotte (NC) and one at Car Pros Volkswagen at San Berardino (CA), both SE DSGs. Some sites show one at VW Latham (NY), but it's actually DIB.

Meanwhile there are 65 for sale at dealers in Canada, all Cornflower. A dealer 40 KM from me has 3 of them alone.

It’s a bummer to some that Cornflower Blue has not remained limited to the Rabbits, but from a purist perspective, the spec is still awesome; Slick top, heritage plaid, and all the performance goodies. I think as time goes on, those cars will continue to be more and more sought after. The pricing on them here in Canada has held really strong, even with newer MK7.5s available in CF blue.

My 2021 Autobahn with the 17.5 pound wheels which I feel fortunate to get on this last year of the Mk.7.5. I wish I could say the same about the missing and non functioning infotainment and Driver Assistance bits. Would appreciate hearing from anybody who does not have the G-meter, boost gauge, water and oil temperature showing up and can't permanently turn off the annoying "Lane departure" function, pain turning it off every startup when the manual says it can be shut off permanently...

In the U.S., the gauges are supposedly to become available in July, with owners receiving letters from VW. Not sure about Canada, but it's an indication that the software is written and nearly ready for deployment.

Thanks so much for this hopefully accurate news. VW Canada is useless at after sales customer support...No matter how many new Volkswagens one has purchased..

MY 3RD VW 2ND GTI MK6 & mk7.5 and agree 100% there useless with after care & customer service in General, but my dealership said the VW Customer care department is contracted out to a 3rd party, surprise Surprise. They were only allocated 4 Cornflower blue GTI's 2 DSG & 2 manual and all were pre sold factory orders.

3rd party explains a lot, VW can't see very far ahead with quality control and after sales service which is a shame as it just brings more sales to Hyundai, Kia, Honda, Subaru and others which are cranking up their products and service. Just sat in a new base Taos last week, the cheapness of the interior just supports VW's arrogance and riding on the "Audi Quality" reputation they used to have. Car and Driver said in an article this month "VW is a German brand trying to satisfy what it thinks are American tastes" and they are blowing it royally...
