... and it definitely delivers. I knew I was in trouble when I test drove it at the dealer. Wasn't looking to buy that day, but after the drive I knew I was taking it home. I've had it for almost a year now and very happy with my choice. The car corners and handles with supreme confidence. It's unbelievable coming from a 2001 TT - what I can do with this car! Coming from a manual I was a little skeptical of DSG. But the ability to paddle shift (key when engaging in spirited driving), the smoothness and quickness of DSG sold me pretty quickly. Very rare to see the a TTS too. I've only seen one other in the Bay Area.
Unbelievable grip devours foul weather and curves; spirited acceleration and boost (especially with the APR chip which makes it a true sports car IMO with 315HP and TQ); killer looks inside and out (love my baseball optic interior); DSG; LED running lights; trunk space; gas mileage; rare
MMI could be improved although I understand it is better on the 2010 model with integrated traffic, quicker route calculation and improved graphics. People sometimes have a hard time hearing me when using the handsfree bluetooth with my iphone. Reliability is a concern with 2 recall notices already
