Because it is such a lemon. When I collected it the o/s/r door was stuck closed. Whilst waiting for it to go in for that to be diagnosed a whine at 2,500 rpm developed and the fuel gauge would read 1/3 full after putting £45 in (US posters take note) When it went in for the door lock and door card replacement they diagnosed the noise as the alternator. Whilst in for the alternator job they looked at the difficulty selecting reverse problem that had been getting worse. Result-needs a gearbox!! 3 months old, 5,000 miles, £41,000. Maybe I'll pass on the next car which was to be an RS6. The dealer has been great and have given me a TT 3.2 quattro with DSG to play with. If you get a chance you must try one. I'd hold off on buying one though 'till it's been out a few years and some other mug has paid the money and done the on road evaluation.
