Has anyone ever had the Das Weltauto checklist?

I've just bought a July 2017 Golf R Estate from a main dealer under the Das Weltauto scheme.
The satnav wasn't up to date and the tyre pressures were wrong on three tyres, so it got me wondering. I found an old version of the checklist when it was 133 items, but it has now expanded to 142.

Has anyone ever had the checklist completed and signed by the dealer and given to them? If so, what does it say? Any chance of a copy?

These are the old out of date ones I've found

This is an old American one - which says one copy goes to the customer

So you didn't check everything on the car before you bought it?

The certified program is only as good as the dealer - and how they interpret the checklist.

What is "major" bodywork for example? That is certainly open to interpretation.

You need to check a certified car just as you would any other used car and take nothing for granted.

When I went to buy my A6, they had a nice certified one that had a bit of undisclosed bodywork - a resprayed roof and C pillar. It also had a loose headliner so the question was "hmmmmm"...
