    Completely agree, it's nice that the steering wheel is the same (thicker rim) but yeah otherwise a completely different car and much better for it! I can't drive for 6 months so can't speak from experience but my wife says it feels bigger and heavier although the power is the same as she's used to...

    There isn't as much space in the boot to 'hide' things like we had in the B7 i.e. we used to keep the re-useable Sainsburys bags under the false floor along with an umbrella and other **** that I didn't know we had (or needed).

    The standard speakers are a significant improvement on the old Bose system which I always felt was lacking in clarity and depth. The stereo is nice to use too and I like the fact it's much more of a 'computer'

    Seats are nicely familure but benefit from more leg room all round although I wouldn't say the Alcantara is as good quality!

    All together it makes for a lovely package and feels more 'grown up' - maybe a few areas for improvement but nothing significant or any worse than before.

    ive managed to grab some pics this morning so will start a new thread for them rather than cross posting in here.

    definitely feels a bigger car and the steering is much lighter and has much more feedback to the driver ,will see how it differs when i sit it on its arse and stick some bigger rims on .
