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.
