Spent a little more money than I wanted to but so far it seems worth it. The interior options are limited to sunroof(waste of money) and navigation(who doesn't have this with their cell phone yet?). That upgrade will set you back another 2k or so! The base model is tricked out and the interior styling is clean and pertinent. The car handles great and if you can drive a standard transmission it is even more fun. I owned an 89 diesel and they are completely different. Although the previous models got better fuel mileage they were very unenjoyable to drive by and large. It was hard not to hear the engine on the old models but this current generation is pleasing to my ears. You can even hear the turbo ever so slightly which I think is cool. This isn't a sports car but if you are mechanically inclined I don't imagine it would take much to bring it up a few levels. I have been spinning the wheels by accident when leaving traffic lights and stop signs. Suspension is very nice, comes with mats, and the stereo is the deal breaker in my mind. Yes it takes a little time to figure all of the options out(steering mounted controls and radio controls seem endless) but I think it is always cool to discover some new feature. Bluetooth, trunk organizer, 3 years of maintenance, great looking rims and most important, its a diesel! Some report up to 48 MPG on the interstate! Crazy good so far. I just hope it isn't like past VWs i've been in which seem to shed buttons and knobs with ease!
