Love it Love it Love it! in dry weather.
In 10" of snow, I want a 'real' manual tranny! It gets old fast, arguing with the computer about 2nd or 3rd at 10-15 mph on the Interstate!

9-30-11: No problems or issues (knock wood)
12-12-11: JasonTDI
did DSG service and timing belt at 78K
(I also bought into the "sealed transmission" theory, so didn't change fluid at 40K)

Current miles: 88K
+ (7-12)

Also, I always ALWAYS use the e-brake - there's no functional lock-out to keep the car from rolling a bit in P, and then being hard to shift back into gear.

I am not sure if this is supposed to be the way it is, but when I slow down after a long drive, it seems to downshift kind of hard with a funny noise. Other than that, I enjoy it tremendously. Just wish I could start off in second, because first is a little short for me.

Edit: 10/29 - updated production date.
