That sounds about normal. The recommended fluid change is 40k but if your adding power you might want to do it more frequently.

So I just picked up a 2009 GTi TSi and had a few questions regarding the DSG Trans. Whenever I shift it into gear whether its reverse or drive, it seems to take a few seconds to "kick in". Its been a while since I had a automatic car so I'm not sure if this is normal to the DSG tranny. Also, what are the best practices for maintaining the life of the transmission. How often are you guys changing the fluid? The vehicle only has 30K miles on it. I plan to build the car out and put some additional power on it but want to make sure all is in proper working order first.
DSG transmissions are computerized stick shift using 2 clutches. It will operate just like they way you drive a stick. When the light turns green and you start taking off in a stick, it will take a split second before your car starts to move because when you add gas, you have to play the clutch to know where the bite point is, then add more gas and let the clutch go more. This is what the DSG is doing when you press down on the gas when you are at a standstill.

I'm very happy that I hadn't loaded the upgrade when I had originally planned because that would have complicated the issue.
