Overall the fit and finish, impressed me the most: Tons of soft touch material all around, rubber or felt lined cubbies/cup holders, deep horn, weighty doors that thud when closed, pedals that are well spaced.....
The list goes on for sure, and the MK7 that should be available around 2015 is expected to improve even further on that....its just a matter of whether I can wait or not.
I think the mk7 and the next WRX will be direct competitors with refinements going to the vw.
