Manual says 19" or so. But being a VW, I hardly want it be in a rain storm. So just keep it out of the water.

I've done 2 feet + for a mile or so in my Petreg with a decent bow wave and a piece of canvas over the front but I certainly wouldn't try it with a diesel!

When you come out of the water, check for debris in the spokes of the rear wheels - for some reason they fill with leaves and stuff but the front ones don't.

Went through water high enough to generate a pretty good wake yesterday without any issues but knew it was level pavement w/o any big potholes, etc. Being in northern IL I'm sure you ran into blocked off streets --- just avoid those viaducts and it's deceiving just how deep the water is.
