I have had this car since Nov. It is everything that I hoped for and more. A real pleasure to drive on the twisties, and around town to work. I was down to either this or the Audi A3, which has worse ergonomics, worse visibility - but cool sunroof. Glad that I went with the VW. A few rattles here and there, but I am really particular, so take that with stride. The summer tires that come with the car are just that - poor once the weather cools off. The 6 speed manual is AMAZING - why someone would go for the DSG is beyond me. Highly recommended!!
Amazing to drive, with a sleeper body that does not stand out. Very fast and quick, great handling. The optional 18" Hufs are beautiful wheels.
Maybe just a tiny bit lower, it does look like it rides kind of high.
