Also wanted to announce the arrival of my beautiful baby boy. He was born on April 11, 2009 at 3:52pm in DC. He was 10 days early or so, but all good;)! He was 18" long & 6lbs.8oz. The better 1/2 is doing great and we are over the moon about this bundle of joy. Let the games begin!;)

Congrats! and great looking car! what does the FUNK button do?
Thanks guys;)

I got it from oemplus, and I believe it is the radio button in cabs in Germany. It means radio. I have wired up so it turn on with the lights, but I am trying to figure out how to hard wire my radar detector to it. Or at least something, so I can actually use it. Any ideas?:confused:

Yes the v6 is so smooth, very nice indeed. You really feel the power on the hwy at high speeds. It has crazy torque too, still getting use to it.
The 1.8T is a completely different monster, because of the suspension and engine mods it races around town, you feel every bump and can take turns super quick. I feel more grown up in the v6 while driving (perhaps b/c it is a wagon;)). Still waiting for the verdict, give me another month and a road trip to decide;), but so far i'm liking the v6 a lot!
