The best times were from guys who just threw it in auto/sport mode and eschewed manual mode)
You also get about 10-15 mins street driving time in one of their bigger cars. I grabbed the S8. Nice car, ridiculous acceleration, but a bit disconnected. Take that last comment with a grain of salt because you know what kind of cars I prefer to drive
Lastly, the bolded text above is perfect for your vanity plate. MPG LOL
Wow, that's a pretty good chunk of time in each -- I'm pleased to hear.
I'm assuming there's always an instructor in the car to nanny you in case shit's about to hit the fan? While I wouldn't mind an instructor's presence for a couple laps for pointers and tips, I'd much prefer to drive on my own after that.
As for the TT-S, are you saying that it auto-upshifts at redline, even in manual mode? That's annoying.
Sounds like there are no RS models? I'd love to get behind an RS6 :O.
As for the vanity plate, not sure if you're semi-joking or actually serious with that, but I find it to be kinda douchey. I mean, people are right -- vanity plates are pretty douchey, so I opted for a very benign 'message'. I love, love, love the design of the plate I got, though (the blacked out one you posted earlier).
Looks very nice against the IB.

Not gonna lie, I'm still getting used to how big my car is. I've always been used to compact sedans, so this is taking some adjusting to. As for the curb damage.. I blame that squarely on poor parking structure design (funded by the State, obviously).
