Is it weird to heap praise on a sedan for something as simple as a straightforward shifter? Not anymore.

    As well benefits from something most vw's have is the sport mode which gets rid of the fuel economy programming that retards the reflexes of the engine.

    The +/- are backwards, and on the wrong side.

    This is a diesel engine with a 5k redline. I'm not really sure how much "reflexes" comes into play with this kind of engine.

    I don't see where the +/- are backwards. This is the same setup that was on my first Tiptronic in 2003. Since VW/Porsche/Audi were early users of a "tiptronic/auto-stick/etc..-type," and it's still the original configuration (though a DSG) I'd say they have the directions about right.
