1 week into owning this car and I couldn't be happier. I'm shocked at the power this car has. My last car was a GTI VR6, granted it had over 120k but this TDI has just as much pick up. I have full confidence powering into traffic from a stop. This is a simple, elegant and very well designed car that inherits many technical, structural and visual cues from Audi.
I'm loving the factory nav. It's a very nice system. I'm surprised at how much a like the satellite radio, it's fantastic. I'm still getting used to the automatic transmission after driving stick for 12 years, but having the tiptronic option is great!
The trunk is a little hard to close and you have to plant your hand on the paint in order to close it. I think adding a little more black trim in areas around the feet would be a good idea too. My beige interior would benefit from that.
