Perfect Under The Radar Rocket — Too early to tell, stop back later for a more up to date review after a few more miles under the belt - 6MT so will be little different to the Auto. Build quality is excellent will be monitoring the carbon buildup problems that seem to plague some of the FSI Direct injection Audi's

Pros

Brilliant 3L supercharged engine coupled to an equally brilliant double clutch manual auto transmission.  Instant power at all RPMs. Reasonable gas mileage only If driven passively

Cons

Not many cons.  Interior is too stark and cheap looking on the 2012.  It was improved on the 2013. Could use a louder exhaust note and bigger anti roll bars.

Awesome All Around 4 Door Rocket That Looks Beautiful. — Engine and transmission are best in class, for any $$. Brilliant 3L supercharged engine coupled to an equally brilliant double clutch manual auto transmission. Instant power at all RPMs. Reasonable gas mileage only If driven passively Could use a firmer suspension in order to match the power train.

Love This Car. — I've had this car for almost two years now. Have not had any issues, and it has been putting a big fat grin on my face every time I drive it. The supercharged 3.0 liter V6 is an amazing engine, and it's easy to see why it has won Ward's Engine of the Year 3 consecutive times. Super low end torque, refined, but makes a really nice sound when you open it up. There's few sedans on the market as capable as this one. It also does very well on snow, when we go up to ski country.
