We went for a short ride.
I was very pleasantly surprised! Not sluggish at all. I noticed in pure automatic mode, it did not step down to a lower gear as quickly as I would have expected, but just progressively accelerated while holding the current gear.
However, the steptronic certainly adds gusto.
Will still look for the 5 sp/sport package as my first choice since I will be looking for a 98-99 model. Looking to buy in Sep/Oct timeframe. Anyone want to sell theirs?
