my '06 lacks the sport package and it's a bummer, as my '00 did
and it was like being on rails.  fling fling.  my '06 is a manual,
though i have taken out an A3 2.0 paddle shift as a service loaner
and that thing was RAD.

the radio/etc is busy, that's a problem with all modern cars.  we're
kinda screwed in that regard.

the washers are an option.  the front styling definitely grew on
me, and the rear especially.  love the taillights.
