I wasn't thrilled with the car. Too many rattles, brakes were delaminating within 20k miles, flat seats. I had "fixed" many of it's problems by replacing the suspension and the wheel/tire package and upgrading the poor lighting. MPGs were great though. It just never had the "soul" my 04 has, which I kept when the 13 was purchased.

The biggest reason - limitations to power adders. The 6M had less options and I've been seeing too many problems with failing syncros going SMF and slave cylinders. If it was a DSG car, I'd probably had the emissions fix done - take the money, and then build it up including a DSG tune.
