Depending on which car you're migrating from it might take some adjustment. Compared to our previous Audi A3, the firm ride and road noise were a bit of a shock to the system but after a month it all seems perfectly normal to the point where other cars are just too spongy. Every journey is an adventure. The great thing about the 2.7 is it's really easy to drive slowly and observe 30 or 50mph speed limits because with normal use of the right foot it's all quite docile. But jam your foot down as far as it will go and the PDK shifts down and the revs shoot up making a very satisfying engine and exhaust noise together with more performance than UK roads will allow. We thought we could live with this as our sole car but after 2 months realised there were some journeys that needed something more practical. So for station pickups, the local waste site, DIY store and multi storey car-parks where I'm paranoid that each kerbing of the 20" alloys will cost £500 we've bought a Hyundai i10.

Excellent and beautiful car, decent practicality with the two boots. I bought mine used in Germany (1y and 4,500k) with a huge discount. A bit noisy for long stretches.
