Gas,

Good idea. All the pictures, descriptions, reviews, sounds, and video clips won't give you the real life experience of driving it. It might give you some idea, but everyone has a different opinion. The only reason I haven't test driven one is that I want to wait a year (experience talking here) and if I test drive one right now I'm afraid I'll be plopping down 70 grand right after.

Let's keep this thread clean of the DCT vs. 6MT vs. DSG arguments please.

And if any members have issues with each other, please take your love fest to private messages.

Can you post a picture of those padel shifters in front of that wood trim? Or better yet, a wide shot of the whole front dash? Thanks in advance!

No one has gotten past the 1200 mile break in yet. Therefore, no performance numbers.
