    Positive dealer experience with major water leak

    Ran the GSW through the carwash and watched in horror in the rearview mirror as water poured in through the hatchback/window. Took it in to the dealer I purchased it from and told them I thought it was a window seal because the hatch seal looked intact and oh by the way the trim around the...

    DSG driving tips? Former manual driver.

    I am a manual transmission enthusiast and now have a GSW SE with DSG. I love actually "driving" my car. I like to drive assertively.
