Driving 100 miles per day to work & back was not doing anything for me or my 335i. I needed something comfortable and economicle-Diesel seemed to be the best thing. I had just bought a 2011 Jetta for my wife, & loved it. The golf was more fun to drive, and now after 1500 miles I can say that driving across Houston's traffic and getting 46+miles per gallon, makes me happy!! The seats are great for a slightly overweight 5'10" guy, it has all the "Pep" that I need (It supprises me frequently) ok, its not a twin turbo Beemer, but it goes. My only fault with it are the heater controles, which are a little "Cheap" but other than that, I love it. Bravo Volkswagen !!
Media interface with Blackberry, Ipod, sirrus, etc is good quality. MPG is great, It is a comfortable car to in for 31/2 hrs a day (Better than the BMW) Sliding armrest (Jetta doesn't have this)
Better heater controls- use the ones that are on the Jetta
