    I've picked it up

    Well I picked my car up yesterday (A3 3.2 DSG)

    Have not had a chance yet to have a play as driving in the rush hour is not really the place. Although on leaving the dealers to be faced with a 30 minute traffic jam instantly showed the advantages of automatic.

    Noticed that in "D" mode it changes up very quickly (35mph 5th gear), I guess thats for maximum economy and would also explain the delay at junctions I have read about on here.

    Overall I am very happy and looking forward to having a play at the weekend.

    2 initial questions:
    Do people tend to use 95 or 98 RON fuel ?
    Does the alarm not have an interior sensor as I locked the car but left the windows slightly open and waved my hand around inside and no alarm went off, also I cannot see any flashing light in the car to indicate the alarm has been activated ?

    Fuel? I'd go for 98 Ron, painful though it may be.

    Sensor? Should be there although I think others have reported it as a bit iffy (and you won't hear the alarm whe nit goes off either )

    Agreed. I use Shell Optimax or BP Ultimate. The car runs much better, and delivers slightly higher mpg, which helps offset the extra cost.
