I'm coming up on my 3 yr ann. with my GTI and have only very few / minor complaints (see below) to go with my many miles of spirited driving. Even though torque steer is non-existent, I've decided I just don't like FWD cars - the balance is just not there, especially at turn-in. Luckily for VW (and me!), from what I've read, my wants / needs are all met with the 2012 GTI-R / Golf-R / R20.
* Love the DSG (but would like the selected gear to be displayed in Sport mode as well as manual). * Seats are always fabulous - as is the rest of the interior. * Smooth, strong, linear brakes. * 1 touch Up/Down on all windows. * Climatic HVAC controls.
* Radio: Change display's blue bkgd; allow steer wheel buttons to seek; allow Sirius song info scrolling; increase speed sens volume levels. * Rethink the fuel filler door release - maybe include w/driver door unlock? * Rethink wiper service position "feature". * Add a grey leather color option.
