Again congrats Mook, very nice car!

Just drove a couple today at Autobarn Evanston. Almost had to sit down and talk numbers I liked the car so much.

Very nice! I hate to admit it but, I keep eying these things as a possible Mustang replacement (and Saabaru replacement, 2 for 1 thing as you're doing). To be fair, these new GTI's run low 12s with bolt-ons and slicks lol...

There's a DSG IS38 turbo swapped GTI running 10.8. I'm really happy with mine. Handles great, about as much speed as I need for the street, tech and interior are great and I'm averaging 28mpg and got over 31mpg on our Galena cruise.

I haven't mentioned it yet, but you will soon find that the piano black interior is an absolute dust magnet. Pretty much every day I wipe it down with a microfiber while letting the RPM's settle down. Einszett Cockpit Premium works great on the interior.

I really want a fun car I can DD but can't bring myself to sell the GN. Looks like a fun car and I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

I'm a fan. The MK7's are such nice cars... My BASE TDI had more tech in it than loaded cars I owned 3 years ago and was super tight and fun to drive... I can imagine what one with more "sport" is like. Congrats!

I've always been torn on the rear wiper delete. It does look cleaner without it, but I actually use mine weekly if not more. The rear washer fluid feature on the other hand I would recommend using never. You get a good spray to clear the window then it just trickles out until the line is empty.

I hated the rear wiper personally. I still have mine off the mk6.

why do you end up using it weekly? esp without any precipitation?

Is it one of those aerodynamic issues where it always pulls road grim up to the back of the car?
