Hello.. first post here. Ordered her back in July and finally arrived today! Got the seats, Navi, wheels and color upcharge. The color is quite cool in person and I'm glad I stuck with it. I was going back and forth while waiting for the car to arrive since I had never seen a green one in person. I really like it.
It was definitely worth the wait - excellent feedback with the chassis. Next to no tq steer, stays on the power if you short shift at 6. Holding it past 6 with the stock tune is somewhat pointless as the car lays down. The recaros are tighter than say the EVO X recaros and not as well contoured. But you can drop them to the floor, which I like.
Probably the best hatch for the money - since you can get them for 4-5K less than the forthcoming GTI. We have the MPG advantage, sans the GTD.
Cant wait to get her on the track at barber in Feb
