Interesting thread. In many cities folks will choose the DSG for the apparent suitability in traffic. In that application it is hard to avoid lots of stops and starts. My 92tsi needed new clutch packs after 13000km of mixed driving city and freeway. Not too much traffic jam driving but certainly some.
I was considering a tune at the start but nothing available. So glad I didn't as the warranty outcome may have been different.
Traded it on the R straight after.
I will not buy another dry clutch DSG and sure wouldn't up power and torque if I did.
They should fit the wet clutch DSG in them and sort the issue once and for all. Then power ups would be feasible.
They area pretty good overall package but for that weak point
Thanks for that, R-Line, that sounds great! I'm thinking of starting off with exhaust mods, and now that I know the pops and mild crackles come through, that's another reason to do it.
