the poor performance throughout most of the year due
to the large and inefficient A/C compressor (I live in
Houston, so it was on for about 8-9 months out of the
year), and with some expensive maintenance issues
looming, I broke down and traded it in for a new A3
2.0T manual.

Good  deal, Brian. I was actually looking at a new A3 on the showroom  yesterday while awaiting glovebox #3 on my car (hoping third time is a  charm!) and agree it's a great-looking vehicle. I've always been a  hatchback guy.  I like how the modified the interior (dashboard,  etc.). I'd like to have a 2.0T quattro manual, if it were only  available.... I've heard really good things about the 2.0T FSI engine,  I'm envious of the power upgrade over the 1.8T..... Good luck with it!
