Don Beyer in VA has a light green T6 demo they received on 10/30/02. I took it out for a test drive lastnight. My concerns regarding the 4speed trans were put to bed. The T6 had good power of the line and the shifts were seamless. The trans did no "hunting" for the correct gear. Power is more than adequate with no noticable lag. One thing that really impressed me was the ride. It was very sport like, bumps were handled with a thump and not a bounce. Actually, I felt the suspension setting was far more aggressive than my Passat. No noticable dive or roll. This vovlo is amazing. It handles as if it were a smaller car. Those 18" Atlantis rims are very very nice, must haves IMO. The demo also had the wood steering wheel. The wheel is quite small which adds to the ease of driving. This one did not have the HIDs.
