    Got an A4. Vacation was Christmas markets in Austria and Germany. Highlights were: food, Christmas lights, Porsche museum & production line, Audi production line, BMW museum, and Mercedes Benz museum.

    Another highlight - doing 115 mph on the autobahn! (Quote from my daughter to me: "115 mph?! I feel like the parent with the reckless teenage driver! Be safe!") This car is speed governed to 130 mph and I didn't want to over rev a new car 'too' much.
    Congrats! Brings back memories of my Euro delivery 29 years ago. Bought a 1986 VW Jetta GLi. Picked it up early Nov. 1985 from Wolfsburg, W. Germany and dropped it off 12 days and 2000+ miles later in Emden, W. Germany; car arrived in Wilmington, DE a couple of days before Christmas.

    I did a tour of VW Wolfsburg factory, Mercedes Sindelfingen and Emden factories, Mercedes and Porsche museums. Drove the Jetta in 9 countries: W. Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, and The Netherlands.

    Once I hit the 1000 mile break-in mark, I let it loose on the German Autobahn. The GLi only had a 102 HP, 1.8L N.A. engine but I got it up to between 115 and 118 mph.

    Outback crossbars are standard and pivot into the rails.

    The 2015 WRX comes from the factory with Dunlop Summer tires, so you should swap them out for Winter or All-Season tires before venturing out in the snow.

    Had the same rental last year. White last year, silver this year. Reserved a VW Passat wagon last year and Skoda Octavia wagon this year, but was assigned an Audi A4 wagon each time. Was offered a Ford Galaxy minivan w/AT for a little more this year ... hmm, no thanks.

    The A4 is only FWD, but handles nice with 245/40-18 Pirelli P7's and rowing the 6 speed with my left hand. The in-dash NAV comes in handy navigating all the roundabounts. And nice, comfy heated leather seats.
