(A VW salesman said when the GTI is in sport mode a microphone picks up engine compartment noise and pipes it into the cab - NOT!)

Anyway I took a five hour trip in the ST and found it to be reasonable, even at highway speeds.
When you said ST I thought Ford LOL. I had to double check the forum I was on
