1. Shood I go with Trendline OR Comfortline BUT to Add some more extras like radiocd 510 etc, etc. OR SHOULD I stay on HIGHLINE (since I LOVE those Alcantara sport seats).
It really depends on your daddy's budget. Personally, I'd go for the Highline so you don't have any more room to desire anything else (accessories and options) for a few years. Saves you some money

Which Engine will satisfy me for everyday purposes? 1.6 tdi with 105 hp or 1.4 tsi with 122 hp?
Knowing the cost of fuel in Europe and traffic situation in some cities, I'd go diesel especially since you just got out of college and starting your life. Once you land a nice job and have saved enough money, you may consider upgrading to something that would suit your lifestyle at that point in your life.

If you plan to travel around Europe, diesel is the way to go. You save so much gas money on very long drives or road trips.

I have heard or read some mechanical issues with the 1.4TSI engine/transmission. I think VW needs to reinforce the internal components a little bit more to handle the boost pressure and output power. A 1.4TSI engine giving out 122HP is a very nice idea especially in today's high gas prices but VW, IMHO, needs to improve on it some more. I recommend going for the TDI just because it is frugal and practical. It will also provide you with some degree of performance when you need it. It is the best of both worlds.

Congratulations on your upcoming graduation gift!
