I didn't have any real issues at the time minus all the rattling. Not that the mk6 is built together with foam & rubber dash pieces, but the 7 really had some rattling for being so nice.

The suspension had a couple creaks, knocks and rattles but front and rear by the time i got rid of it, and i never touched anything on it.

Engine reliability - probably a safer bet with the 7 especially comparing all of the serious common issues the 6 has, both fsi and tsi. the clutch holds more power than the 6 as well.

kind of a toss up, in the end i'm glad i went 6 and haven't missed the 7 all too much.
Thanks for your input. I really want another 2 door in a couple years, that said, the 2011 only has 56K miles so far, we will see.
