Today the dealer gave the Lusso manual and I was with a friend driving for 45 minutes.

Felt younger again>:)

Seating is great, I had no time to look at the buttons and gadgets cause I was too concentrated on the road and being the first time driving this car, all my focuses was needed on the road.
Car responses very quickly on the shifting, I expected a more shorter shifting but hey was not bad, just have to get use to it. Its over 30 years I have not had a manual car.

Curves and turning very precise and no swading.

Engine noise, I expected a more rumble, but noise level in the car was good. I was able to conversate with my friend beside me.

I would not use this car as an everyday car. Since I am retired I can use it all summer. LOL

some thing I have to get use to it is the speedometer, the tachometer is more pronounced but need to look at the speed. Don't want to get speeding tickets.

In all I was very happy and glad I that I had bought the car.

He drove the car, and since he had driven the Audi A4, he to noticed the shifting was a little to desire. Over all he also liked it.

That's typically the case, bigger tach, smaller speedo. The tach is the stuff that gets your attention as it's constantly moving lol. But glad to hear you had a good experience with it.
