In the last month and a half, our beloved EOS has come under attack. First, some idiots decided to reverse into the back of us whilst the car was parked at a railway station. They broke one of the reversing sensors and of course did not leave any details. Then the nearside mirror got smashed 3 weeks later. And 2 weeks after that, a ground compactor fell of a van and hit our beloved car. BUT as the car is currently being repaired, I am having 'an affair' with my courtesy car. I know my current EOS has given me 3 whole years of pleasure, stability and thrill but the lease is coming to an end and I need a younger 'more able' model. So what do I have as a courtesy car I hear you say? No, it is not the new BMW Z4 out this month in the UK nor is the new Audi A5 cabriolet. It is the 2.0L Turbo FSI with the DSG transmission. I remember talking to SiJ2000 at one of the Walford meet about his car and how much he preferred it. I have never been a big fan of automatic but now I understand what the fuss is about. It is SIMPLY AWESOME. I mean, don't get me wrong, I still love my manual gear box and every now and then I can feel my left foot wanting to touch the break pedal. But I must confess that the experience I am currently having with the courtesy car is an eye opener. For those of you considering buying an EOS and wondering whether the DSG is worth the extra expense, I am sure our members will be delighted to share their thoughts. And as for me, DSG transmission, I salute you!!!
