My scores may be a little optimistic -- I just took delivery today of a Platinum Gray JSW TDI with automated DSG.
No warts yet!
Traded in a 2003 Audi A4 Avant -- amazed at how similar the two cars looked when parked next to each other at the dealership.
TDI is smooth and powerful at the line.
Bluetooth has been flawless so far; also Media Device Interface is apparently now standard (in 2011 models, you needed the NAV).
Touch screen stereo is an upgrade over 2011 as well -- includes HD radio and integrated phone controls.
Dashboard layout is perfect -- gauges are easy to read, and again -- very Audi-like.
Cockpit is elegant -- very straight interface between windshield and dash, with excellent visibility.
Seats are supportive and legroom is plentiful (I am 6'3 and found a comfortable driving position right away)
Construction seems very tight -- fit and finish are impressive.
Platinum gray color with chrome accents -- stunning.
Options offerings are rather sparse.
A few I might have liked: automatic headlights, backup camera, fog lights.
Some folks might want climate control, but I like the simple 3 dial layout (temp, fan speed, direction).
