If I didn't need to drive a truck for work, I'd probably have an S60R and my wife the V70R.

Wow, man I am so sorry.... To have an R and be locked in the realms of London.... I hope you get it out of London every once and a while and give it some open road <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (needsdecaf)

Hey there..<p>I know exatly what you are talking about. Wrecked my 05 with only 3k miles on it. Got an 06 as replacement. Both are auto GT's.<p>05 was quicker, torquier, idled smoother etc.<p>I love my 06, but want the power and such back from my 05. Dealer has made some tech updates to software, which helped...but it's still not the same.<p>Wierd how it changed. Some on here thot I was crazy when I posted before about the difference. While I'm sorry for both of us - I'm glad I'm not the only one having this issue. Altho...you're lucky as you have an 05 as well.<p>regards,<p>-s-<BR><BR>

I test drove an 05 GT and BOUGHT an 06 GT. 06 definitely feels faster and you just cant beat the 6th gear while cruising.
