    I am surprised no one mentioned sound proofing.

    I'm pretty happy with the noise level. My 40 year old vw rabbit diesel was a bit noiser though... My '06 Audi wasn't much quieter than this in comparison. My must haves were the Tuner to open up the capability of the 1.4T - I chose OpenFlashTune stage 2, the steering wheel extension (still saving up for it), a nice stereo with carplay, led headlights, led running lights, and led fog lights.

    Some nice to haves...I have the turbo and would like an aftermarket rear sway bar. I would also like the spare tire kit. I would also like a sturdier rear shelf. I don't put things on it but it is so flimsy that i'm afraid to leave it installed.

    Nice. Which speakers did you opt? For the rear shelf, some have opted to reinforce the factory unit. I hadn't heard of steering wheel extensions. My "needs" aren't as cool.

    At freeway speeds, DB can exceed 70 (somewhere between dishwasher and vacuum).

    My '18 is in the works. I installed a Dashmat, 4 window tinting, dog "seat" liner, and removed rear seats and carpeted the deck, w/ 1/2" closed cell marine foam underneath. On the shelf are a 3rd brake light flasher, horns, side panel sound deadening, and speakers. (Head units cannot be upgraded.) I'll probably purchase an amp as well. I'm searching for a suitable Nav system, dog barrier, sill plates for 3 doors, and door protection strips (outside), but haven't found a source, yet.

    BMC cloth drop in air filter. Gave me 2mpg more on the highway.

    Will pay for itself in 200 years!
