How does your A/C handle the brutal heat over there? Hope it holds up pretty well man

The A/C works really great, never been a problem .

However, the performance difference from the hot days and the cooler nights is very apparent.

Lightweight.

I'll have 70k on my car by this time next year. More if I have to make another trip out to the west coast.

Owned my 2011 for 2 1/2 years now. At 61k miles.

Major issues:
- Intake manifold replaced at 60k (replaced under extended warranty)

Minor issues/TSBs:
- TSB, Wastegate rattle at 7k (I think)
- TSB, DSG software reflash at 8k (I think)
- Metallic knocking noise when turning wheel at 60k (paid out of pocket)
- Rubbing noise when pulling up parking brake (not fixed, but dealer confirmed there is nothing wrong with it mechanically)

A little more high maintenance than I'm used to (grew up driving Honda/Toyota appliances), but the car has been reliable so far.
