9-th gen happy owner

Today I exchanged 8-th gen for my new baby 1.8 sport in white.
So far done 24 km in the town.
So far very impressed by build quality.
Nice little things: Auto closing wing mirrors , remote opening and closing of the windows, rear parking camera on the I-mid
Big improvement is the quality of the audio system , way better than 8-th gen stock audio. In my 8-th I spent bag of money for speakers, sound deadening, digital processor and amp.
Of course it's not high end , but is good enough.
Start Stop system , works so well, that i hardly notice it.
Econ - strange
Dealer installed me parrot HFT it's working great.

Glad to know that the audio is better than the 8th gen...

Sometimes I think about spending money improving my 8th audio, but as it's money thrown out the window, I guess I'll just keep it until I switch to a 9gen!

Why is the econ strange?

Which audio system do you have? There are 3 (non sat nav ones) in the 9G.

1)base audio with 4 door speakers
2)base audio with 4 door speakers and 2 tweeters
3)premium audio with separate amplifier and 7 speakers- 4 x door speakers, 2 tweeters and 1 x subwoofer in the boot compartment on right hand side.

Hi.
I'm also picking up a white pearl 1, 8 sport on Tuesday, but in Sweden.
So excited I'm about to burst.
In the future I want the limited edition carbon fiber trims and maybe a mugen wing if possible.
The cabin is the best place I've ever driven from. Got to love their styling (Had a 07 type r earlier in time).
