my first 3 day notes, with some comparisons to the 2013 GTI i swapped for

The heated seats are very good, as good as the VW.

The back of the front seats is more comfortable than i thought, very padded and soft, yet hugs me very tight. i would hate to be a wider guy in these seats though.

Instant response in reverse at my own command is very nice. The DSG would take 1-2 seconds to start rolling and then the throttle would be all iffy too. Now I control the movement precisely.

70 mph on freeway, 6th gear, 2600 rpms.

average mpg risen from 8 to 14 so far, just on (1) 10 minute freeway trip. i think it will be 25+ after a couple weeks of normal driving. they would let it idle without moving at the dealership for its first 9 miles of life, so that was ZERO mpg, skewing everything.

2nd gear is strongest so far, but i havent even thought about flooring it. 1st gear is too short to use much, it takes you to about 20mph only. 2nd gear really jumps the car ahead nicely.

shifter is a little notchy, but thats only comparing to the best shifters ever, BMW and Honda. Other than that, it shifts good. havent ever missed a gear i was trying for.

touch screen is still a tad annoying, but the stereo sounds as good as always. no doubt it is better than the GTI stereo. Far more sub and bass notes, and really clear highs too. dat 7 band EQ..

touch screen is hard to see in the sun when wearing polarized sunglasses. but the upper dash display is unaffected.

don't think the ride is any MORE bumpy than the GTI ride was, might even be a hair softer. (cuz of the 17's vs the GTI 18's). yet it stays flatter in turns also.

just like my 2008 BMW 135i with good tires... i drive thru my work parking lot a few times a day. never heard any pebbles in the GTI ever... today, my tires were throwing all kinds of pebbles as i went 20mph thru the parking lot.. sticky tires FTW.... reminded me of my BMW days, same thing, the tires picked up all the rocks off the parking lot.

I am approaching 7K miles and have been averaging 24mpg, but most of that was with winter driving. I expect I will be closer to 25mpg by end of summer (I don't baby the car, and this was hand calculated).

It comes down to how much highway vs city and how you drive. I drive more city than highway and still average close to 25mpg which is pretty good for an AWD performance car.

If you are mostly highway driving, I see no reason why you could not average higher. But a lot of this is also on your driving style.

i didnt really want to do mud flaps, but i guess i should. i would want basic black. do you have to drill any new holes to install the "rally" whatever ones? are there any cheaper ones that look almost as good? my top priority is ease of installation and no permanent changes.
