Picked the Tig up yesterday, but not really any chance last night for a decent run. Had to drive from Cardiff - Berkshire and back today, so a good chance to get a proper feel.

Firstly, was very refined at 70-75. Trip MPG was showing around 51mpg (car's got 1300m on the clock ). Very comfortable, and lovely to have such a high seating position and good visibility after my Golf. WIfe was also very impressed with refinement and comfort.

Navigation worked a treat, didn't put a foot wrong (once off the M4 - I really don't need it to get from Cardiff to Cheively junction on M4 :D )

Really relaxing drive with DSG after years of manuals. And though I used ACC in the Golf, as a manual it had some limitations. In the DSG Tig, it was put to full use, including bringing me to a complete stop when traffic built up. Heart in mouth the first time, with foot hovering over the brake, but once I trusted the car it was a breeze :shock:

Overall very happy, apart from the bugs I've collected on the windscreen!

I'm really pleased to hear that you are happy with your DSG. I too will be making the transition from a Golf manual to a DSG for the first time.

At the moment I'm concerned whether I've made the right decision as I have always been more than happy with manual gear changes. Hopefully I will feel as happy as you are when my Tiguan arrives.

Where in Cardiff did you buy it from?
Sinclair VW. 2nd purchase from there. Two really good experiences for me - best customer experience I've ever had from any dealer to be honest.

don't worry about it - I was the same - concerned with my choice, but have to say, I don't think I'll go back to a manual now - absolutely love it.
