My '11 TDI has DSG and it hasn't stalled, even if I've hit the paddles a bit too quickly. (Mine has a GTI wheel with paddles, probably the most rewarding mod one can do to a DSG VW.) Go figure.
The '13 S model JSW seems to have the MFSW and the full Multi-Function Display (MFD). Previously these weren't available on an S. (One feature from the S that I wish were a a universal option is the all black window trim. Even if you don't find the chrome trim to be an eyesore, be prepared for it to fog up over time.)
Congrats on the new ride!
