      I like it. Extremely practical with big windows and a low beltline. Your kids will like it if you go to a National Park to look for Yogi Bear.

      Most leather in mass market cars is "treated" leather. Which means there is thin leather somewhere but it is treated and covered with something synthetic. So skip conditioners.

      Your car is speed limited to about 130 mph unless you have a flash so if you are an average driver you do not need the higher speed rating. But if you like to push your car, the higher
      speed...

      36 psi is good for Summer performance tires. US spec GTI's only came with all seasons and their sidewalls are softer. My Mk V R32 could come with either tire. Recommended
      tire pressures were...

      My last 3 cars have been flashed with no problems. An A4 3.0 flashed with Giac tune for 60K miles before I sold it. A Mk V R32 with Revo tune which I had for 100K miles

      In general hot performance cars like the ST or WRX do not lease well. Manufacturer sets the residual low. Probably because many
      cars will be driven hard and the manufacturer gets back at lease...

      I went to the Fox Field races a hundred years ago when I was in college. We rented a Winnebago to go. I don't think there was
      a sober person at the races !

      With those seats you are going to lose side air bags which may not be a good thing for a street car.

      I think it is mostly the materials used mostly. Here in N. Cal. they repave a section of highway and it is broken in 6 months. I saw a documentary on
      the Autobahn. The highway system there has...

      I think the original design of a car always looks better in most cases. Facelifts look fresh for a short time but after that the original looks better. There are exceptions .

      No not yet. The Mk 7 GTI is still some time off. And as the 2014 is being sold in such limited numbers it may drive up prices of the Used cars. I'd check
      to see what a new 2013 or 2014 goes for. ...

      Get regular alignments or as needed. If your alignment is off or you run tire pressures that are way off your tire is ruined. A cupped tire
      will never be quiet again.

      I had both the Sumitomos and Hankooks on my R32. Hankooks had more grip after they were broken in. The Sumitomos became noisy towards the end
      while the Hankooks were quiet down to the wear bars. ...

      Ventus V12 is a really good tire. Feel great after a few thousand miles and some of the tread is gone. If you are at stock ride height and wheel ET
