Although I personally went with the 2.0T SEL when it came down to decision time. Some features weren't offered in the TDI that were offered in the 2.0T SEL. Leather, homelink, power mem driver seat, 17's standard along with a few other tid bits. Only thing you can't get the pissed me off about the JSW's.... xenons. They should be offering those as at least options on all cars by now and maybe an AWD option would have been nice. If you ask my wife what she misses the most from the BMW.... power passenger seat
Anyways, I'm about to hit 10k and haven't had a problem yet. Fit and finish is near my retired e90. I have no issues with VW so far. I also cross shopped the fit. Way too small and no fun to drive IMO.
