I would want a 6spd if the other option was a regular auro but the DSG actually shifts faster(in manual mode atleast) than the 6spd and when you design one at that fast site with all the virtual stuff it shows like a .3sec faster (or other but no more than a full sec) 0-60 time on the DSG. now I would go DSG without hesitation other than the price.
One other thing to consider/research is the reliability of the DSG. I don't know how long Audi has had it on the road, but it is something to take into account. I really enjoyed my test drive in a DSG car, and I'll hop in a SMG Bimmer whenever I get the opportunity at work, I just think, for me, the novelty would wear off.
DSG all the way. Manual is sure nice and fun, but a DSG is almost as fun. And you can be lazy and leave it in auto when you're not angry at the roads for no reason and just enjoy the ride with some good music or friends. But then again, I'm getting old and lazy.
that's what our seller told us. Most of the time you'll drive with the normal automatic. And I personally like shifting and having control when exactly I shift and when I wanna use the clutch and so on.
Does the DSG shift automatically when you get the rev up into the red area?
It probably does, I think it's idiot proof. My father has an Audi with "tiptronic" (which he always has in D, never even uses the Sport gear) and if you red-line it for too long in semi-auto mode, it'll shift up automatically. Or if you try starting from a stand still in 5th gear, it'll shift down automatically.
I don't know if it's just me or not, but I also feel that cars feel more torque-y with stick shift.
My mom taught me to drive stick amazingly
And she's not one of those "ok, remember you always have to shift out at 2000 before it gets too loud" or whatever. I think she drives better than alot of my friends haha.
I dont think that I will ever own anything other than a manual even thought the DSG is a badass peice of mechanical art
does anyone else ever laugh when they see someone on TV that cant drive a stick like in "The Amazing Race" when one team gets in a car and proceeds to rev the motor to like 5grr and slowly let the clutch burn its great
all in all I dont want to look like a moron on tv not nowing how to drive a stick HAHAH not that Ill ever be on tv
