Back when I first got my tune I drove all the way down to APR from Nashville because I didn't trust anyone nearby to pull the ECU correctly. It also made for a fun trip home after the tune :).

I just saw a white Mk7 on Cool Springs Blvd where it crosses over I-65. The Mk7s look much nicer in person than they do in pictures. I'll admit... I was a little jealous.

It's a combination of VW's laggy drive-by-wire and the DSG acting weird in 1st gear. See all of the posts on pages 4 and 5 for details.
