I took a ride in a DSG equipped GLI back in November of last year...I am in love.
it is not humanly possible to shift that quick...and the performance numbers don't lie...DSG is the quickest way to get from A to B. I am sold. My 5 door will be DSG equipped.
the only nits I have to pick are these. I have heard that the DSG's are not designed to handle more than 300 ft-lbs of torque before they intervien and pull back throttle...however they were used in VW's trio of Turbocharged SEMA cars (all 500+ hp) . HPA also sells a single turbo kit for the DSG equipped Audi TT 3.2's that are far north of that TQ number....so that is still up for debate.
And the US software doesn't hold on to the revs as long as the European...something that I am sure tuners will address in short order.
so unless we plan on having more power than the SEMA cars we're ok. I too am pretty much sold on a 5 door with DSG :thumbup:
