I assume you're talking about the KESSY system? If it's anything like other systems I've used, you must not know something... (ie. there usually is a way to lock the car and arm the security system without touching your key)

Basic stuff but I like how when you're wipers are on and you back up your rear windshield wipers automatically turn on. My last car didn't do that. It was a pain I'm the ass to park that thing.

I like when I turn the air knob to the defogger it automatically turns the a/c on to help clear it faster

Seems like there is... assuming you're talking about the Smartkey keyless entry, you never have to take the key out of your pocket ever, unless you want to pop the hatch remotely. Grasping the handle unlocks the car, button starts and stops ignition, and there's a notch on the exterior door handle that you simply touch to lock the car, just like the keyless systems in recent Audis and BMWs. No need to press a button on the fob to lock it.

I actually just found out about this by accident earlier today. I've only had my car for 3 days now but I find out new things every day. I guess I need to finish reading the manual, but I think I enjoy finding out these new features on my own

I like the three blink lane change signal.

Also I don't see many gti's around here.

I love that I can choose to turn off the drls or that I can control the windows with my fob. BTW, why doesn't it come like that from the factory? It seems like it should've been a FEATURED feature, not one you have to turn on thru vagcom.

I think we have some good control over some items via the regular menu, more so than other cars at least. I like being able to control some things (foot well lighting for one). I agree some things should have been left there so we could modify or turn things on/off. The VAG cars are quite friendly and highly customizable though through VAG COM, I think its great.

Not sure about the DRLs, but I can tell you that the comfort windows feature wasn't standard on North American cars because, from what I've read, when closing the windows, it overrides the pinch detection. As America is a sue-happy country... VW probably wanted to avoid the hassle.

After driving in traffic with one or two a**holes/rednecks/dip sh**s tailgating me in Hummers, Dodge Rams, SUV's or whatever s, finally the entrance ramp to the intestate arrives and then What i like is just giving it about half to three quarters throttle and watching them become a pinpoint in my rear view mirror, and they can never catch up.
