Here are a couple more

The spoiler is quite modest, especially compared to the one on her '00 bug, but I like it. The headlights give really good illumination, and look mean at night :) The pictures don't really do her justice, looks much nicer in person.

Yes, i quite like the extra chrome on this new model. All around there is a feeling of better quality, the interior finishes are much nicer, and i think will prove a lot more durable over time. So far the on road behaviour seems more refined than the previous version too.

I'm looking forward to getting some decent wheel time to really put Daisy through her paces :)

According to the mechanic at my dealer, it was the "dry" DSG that gave the problems and not the "wet" DSG that I believe is in these. I am not sure what the difference really means but that is how they refer to them.

both the "wet" (6speed) and "dry" (7speed) have problems. Lots of 6speed boxes have been replaced under warranty due to faults and the newer 7 speed is not immune. A visit to vwwatercooled.org will show plenty of posts regarding issues with dsg's.
When they are not working correctly they are a complete PITA... when they are working correctly they are quite a good gearbox if you like auto's.

Yeah, I had my reservations about the DSG, but many of the issues I read about seemed to have been remedied some time ago.... Fingers crossed all will be well. I guess time will tell.
