First time GTI owner

Just wanted to join this forum as a first time GTI owner. I recently purchase a 2020 GTI S. Been wanting a GTI for a very long time but life and other priorities always took over. But I finally pulled the trigger on it. If anyone has any beginner advice, leave in the comments below. I’m not looking at any mods til after the warranty expires. Only issue I’m experiencing at the moment is a slight rattle coming from the trunk. Need to check it out.
Is there a major MPG difference between the varying driving modes?
Do you guys recommend keeping the auto shut off on. I find it annoying that it turns off at every light? Does it wear down the starter quicker?
Thanks

This might be the one and only MK8 in the country.

On a serious note, congrats. There isnt a lot fuel consumption difference between different driving modes. Also you disable auto start stop using different tools and plenty of info in MK7 forum.

OP...are you in the U.S.? I thought the new MK8 GTI wasn't available here until later in the fall...maybe July at the earliest.

For anyone...this is it right?
