Yeah, I bet the next refresh after its initial release will bring back some buttons. Touch buttons are not 100% reliable due to oil on people hands. Having to touch it twice to get it to respond is a deal breaker. I can wait it out in my 18' R until they come to their senses.
Agree i want some buttons....but...When you drive this sick car .....you forgett all touch ;)

This guy is a bit dramatic, but he makes a lot of good points. There was WAY too much cost cutting that went into the MK8's design. The MK7 / 7.5 interior is miles better if you ask me.

Again, I agree that the car performs better. I think we can all agree with that. But, I'm looking for the best "do it all" daily driven car. There's a fine line between race car and daily driver.

If our cars popped like that from the factory I'd have to think long and hard if another VW was really what I wanted...

4.23 to 60 is my Best so far. But think i can beat that now, Car is run in now, and a bit colder weather. Will do some Dragy this week again..

Yes the sounds is pretty awesome, for stock exhaust.. So much better than my previous mk7.5 :)
