Lmao. Had I not already paid for, fixed, and installed this thing, I would have wanted it for sure.

Been daily driving this 2012 TDI A3 for a year now. Charisma gets driven almost every weekend. Ignition switch is going out, fuel pump doesn't always prime/stay on. Other than that, I keep putting gas in it and changing the oil and it keeps running. I have done zero preventative maintenance.
