With the recent announcement that Ford will begin using a 6 speed, dual clutch "DSG" style transmission with a DRY clutch I started thinking that maybe the wet clutches are not a good idea. VW's own 7 speed is based on DRY clutch technology which leads me to believe that eventually the 6 speed wet clutch version will be phased out. According to Ford, the 6 speed is a sealed unit requiring no expensive maintenance. I'm starting to feel like a lab rat for VW helping them to perfect the technology. Ford's unit is manufactured by Borg Warner which I believe is the same supplier to VW for the 7 speed unit and probably the 6 speed too.
