I work right across the street from my dealer service dept. 35 minutes from leaving my desk, I'm back, and now my car is un-pucked!

The car came from another dealer and clearly did not get PDI, what with the holiday week or whatever. They will take care of that next week when they install new strut boots.

Thanks all, and especially Workhorse!

Always! Saw Mill Pkwy to Bedford Hills, across thru Pound Ridge and into North Stamford. Excellent drive and never any traffic. Unless some asshole illegally drives a big truck onto the Saw Mill and hits a 10' overpass.

Thanks Mud

black means the fluid level is OK I don't think it has anything to do with charge

Feels like I'm sitting really high in the gti even with seat all the way down when compared to sitting in my wifes 8v a3. Not trying to drive like a gangsta hoodlum but it kind of feels like my prius...

Not a 100% sure but I think thatís what makes ingress/egress a bit easier. Something I donít miss about my old e90.

Another thing that is annoying is that I don't have anywhere to rest my left arm while holding the wheel. The door panel is a bit too far and high, and the arm rest is a bit too low, and far, lol. Oh well.

I feel the exact same way. I'm coming from a 370Z, so I was quite low, but I sat in the passenger seat of the GTI and felt much lower than the drivers side.

I gotta figure out how to make the drivers side that low. I played with the buttons a little, but that was while I was driving so I didn't want to mess with it too much then.

Maybe when I have some time I'll mess about.
