    Facelift Golf R MK7

    https://www.carsales.com.au/editoria...-golf-r-105253

    Nobody talked about this?

    Heard it's new 7 Speed DSG, wonder how reliable it's gonna be..

    It'll probably be the 7-Speed from the TT-RS which is pretty reliable AFAIK.

    Didn't they specifically go away from dry clutches because of how unreliable the MK6 DSGs were?

    That's the troublesome Dry-Clutch one. The TT-RS has the 7-Speed S-Tronic box which hasn't had any issues AFAIK.

    I'm just happy they added more power to the tune. 206kw was way "underclocked".

    But still needs another 20kw more to win against ford rs and a45

    I like... that virtual dash looks the goods... had a fiddle with one in Passat 206tsi R-Line tempted to get it.. but will hangout for the R.

    Before I placed my order for my car about a month ago, I asked around about the 7.5 and no confirmed details as of yet.
