Nice car man.. I've been thinking about picking one up so I have something to commute in. Ranger mpg's are not fun driving 40 miles a day.

Nice I love my mk3! I went the hatch route for more space, did you get the parking assist package added to your 201a?

I bought mine used so and the price was too good to turn down. If I bought new I probably would have gotten a hatch also.

By Peking do you mean parking? If so I did not get that unfortunately.

Yeah it's nice getting high 20s for Mpgs city driving instead of the 10-11 my ranger got!

Haha ya parking, that's the one option we did not get but I'm adding a rear view camera in the mirror. Since I don't want to add a lock pick unit to run the camera into the mft display.

Around us it was cheaper to buy new then find a low miles used.

Congrats they are fun little cars, the dual clutch auto is a little funky to get used too if you went auto but other than that I have been happy with the car!

I don't really use rear view cameras so I didnt care if it had it or not. Mine does not have one or mft, which I'm OK with also.

I did get the dual clutch trans and it feels fine to me. I didn't really have to adjust to it. It is very fun to drive and a lot faster than my old 3.0!
