      You can see the various solenoids and sensors and the electrical connectors which control the flow of hydraulic fluid to the shifter and clutches. This is what replaces your left LEG and right ARM and makes the DSG an AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION.

      And then?

      DSG lets me get drunk anywhere I want because I don't have to let some jackass rip my clutch to shreds while I yell at him from the passenger seat of my own car.
      The only things I can't do with the DSG that I COULD do with an MT are all things that pretty much break stuff. Burnouts, clutch dumps, improper revmatches, mechanical overrevs, the list goes on.

      I heard that if you have a DSG, they are going to allow open container drinking while driving.

      PS - If anyone thought I was implying I drive drunk with a DSG, what I meant was Racheal can drive and I don't have to worry about my transmission.
      PAGE 796 is MINE


      Here's the new dry clutch 7DSG

      A little drama never hurt this thread's goal to get to 1000 pages.
      1000 failed experiments or 1000 learning curves? Continue testing the limits of your knowledge OR you will never learn new things. So keep positive and keep trying. Just because they say it won't work doesn't mean it won't work. It just means it will take too much effort for them to attempt. "LAZINESS" is a mental disease! Don't let it dissuade you!

      What about a regular automatic? Then I don't have to worry about rolling backwards

    9. 12-05-2008 01:27 PM #34109
      The topic of whether the DSG is an manual transmission or automatic is unimportant.
      What is important is that the DSG is superior to both.

    10. 12-05-2008 01:29 PM #34110
      I do admit the DSG could use some sort of hill assist. If there's improper usage of torkles your ESP light will notify you.

    11. 12-05-2008 01:31 PM #34111
      Oh, I punched it the other day in 1st gear from like a 5MPH roll.
      I thought I had disabled ESP, so anyways I punch it and the car is going and I'm like WTF where's the power and I look at the dash and the ESP light is solid on -- no blinking, so I upshift to second and there's still no power and the light is still solid on.
      Shift into 3rd and the light goes off.... I never disabled ESP and it was working SO HARD it never blinked.

      Trufe
      Just depends on the driver. If you're alright with not having a third pedal and a stick, then the DSG is awesome.
      Basically, either you like driving a stick or you don't mind driving an automatic.
      My Jetta is the first automatic I've ever owned, and I went ahead and got the auto cause I had a hard time finding a 1.8T that was in good shape for a decent price.
      Next car will be a manual, I acknowledge DSG is great, but I miss having a manual.

      Maybe the whole 143ft-lb/tq @ 6800RPM is what got me annoyed driving stick.
      Anyone else concur?

      Last vehicle I had with a stick was pushing roughly 650ft/lbs of torque. Then again, it weighed 6000+ pounds.

      What is important is that the DSG is superior to both.

      I guess it all depends on a few things:
      1. Am I the type person that pushes on a pedal and the car decides what happens? And when it breaks down am I going to pay someone else to fix it or am I going to dive in and do it myself?
      Or
      2. Am I the type person that knows what happens when I select the proper gear and enjoy the power I wield over my car. And when it breaks down am I going to pay someone else to fix it or am I going to dive in and do it myself?
      I think these personality traits are the most common defining our drivers today.
      1000 failed experiments or 1000 learning curves? Continue testing the limits of your knowledge OR you will never learn new things. So keep positive and keep trying. Just because they say it won't work doesn't mean it won't work. It just means it will take too much effort for them to attempt. "LAZINESS" is a mental disease! Don't let it dissuade you!
