According to Volkswagen Australia, since the arrival of the Mk6 Golf in, DSG transmissions have become the dominant sales choice for local buyers and now claim a 90 per cent take- up rate in. It' s all about personal preference. I went with DSG in my MK6 and couldn' t be happier. I live in Austin and am soon moving to Houston, two of the most traffic- laden cities in the U. Popping the transmission into " D" saves me lots of headaches during rush hour.
First I was told they had too many manual TDIs, then none Thanks for responding. Since I' ve been driving a 330HP 265Lbs torque BMW M3 for 4 years and Honda S before that and a highly modified ' 88 RX7 before that ( all convertibles), I am obviously more GTI oriented than economy oriented.
