Living in north Worcestershire there are many narrow roads with overhanging trees and hedgerows that I use. The steering assistance on these roads is a pain in the butt. It’s the digital equivalent of my first driving instructor in 1971 who used to grab the steering wheel all the time. I know you can turn it off each time you get in the car but has anybody got any idea how to make it be off by default rather than the other way round?
BTW: I turned off my driving instructor by sacking him. The driving school did the same when I told them why I’d cancelled my lessons.

When you say "steering assistance", are you talking about Lane Keeping Assistance? If that's the case, then I'm afraid you're out of luck. This has beed discussed no end on another forum and it would appear that it's a safety feature implemented by VW which keeps it on unless you manually turn it off. Someone in the USA has managed to turn it off by default using Ross-Tech VCDS. This is widely used in the VAG community on ICE cars, but I don't know how well it's been implemented on electric vehicles yet. On my previous car, a VW Tiguan, the default setting was "off" and you turned it it on if you wanted that option.

Yes, Lane keeping. I really don’t like it. It’s fine on major roads/motorways but lesser roads it’s not so good.
Ah well.
