You can leave them grey or whatever, it was the style I was referring to.

Ah, ok. Just for research purposes, I'm also going to see this one at the weekend. It's down to £8k now and comes with full Sti styling, and suspension/strut brace mods.

Thing is, it's a pre-facelift (same power but worse interior), and an auto, which I don't think I want.

But those wheels are quite sexy :lol:

I'd agree with false, noticed the wheels straight off :lol:

In saying that I'd keep them grey.

I know. I have regretted that ever since, TBH. It's quite nice on long journeys, but I really do need to hold out for a manual.

I must be wheel blind :lol: They just aren't on my radar much, unless they are excessively big/small or obviously very tasteless.

Out of interest, have you ever driven a car with paddle shifters? Wasn't one of your Rocs a paddle shift?

I won't lie, I have been looking at this one a bit...

The pre-facelift models just have stupid gear select buttons mounted to the front of the steering wheel :dread: but post-2006 they came with paddles. Are they just a gimmick I'd end up not using?

Scirocco was a paddle shift or stick shift, whatever you preferred. If I was in manual mode I used the paddles, but that isnt universal for all paddles as they are all different.

Yeah they are still manual control unless you butt into a software safety threshold, but its not really a manual. I found it was pretty boring to use like that. You cant even pretend its close to changing gear properly.

95% of the time it was in automatic mode as it was just way too competent like that.

OK, cheers, that's what I suspected. I have the 'tiptronic' option on the Forester but I get bored of using it and it just doesn't feel right.

(Also, it's push forward to change up, which is clearly strawberry floating bullshit.)
