Anyway, I drive the car car off the lot nicely and push the pedal to the floor so I can feel the torque. Let me tell you the torque is there and there is plenty of it. I have never driven the with the DSG transmission before and was not sure if I would like anything remotely like an automatic. The DSG does not shift of drive like an automatic. It shifts very quickly to keep you in the powerband. Totally impressive. So I took the car on some steep hills to see how it pulls. No problem what so ever. I mean this car is awesome. It does not run like some of the heavily modified TDI's out there. But it does run better than any that are just chipped or use a tuning box, guarenteed. So at the price that the car is, if you are buying to modify it you have got a damn good start. I took it on flat road, steep hills and on the highway. This car pulls so nice and strong everywhere. It seems not to fall on its face around 4k like the older models. Totally, totally impressed. If I did not have mine, I would buy one. Maybe I can talk the old lady in to one?
