      I had the exact same experience with my '09 A3 w/ DSG. The pedal reset would make the transmission nice for a few days, but it always returns to its bad self. I've tried several different brands of...

      Never heard a failing water pump would leak into oil. Usually it means a failing head gasket. There's a simple test you can do: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QA7KVQq9vKA

      Did you reset the transmissions after the fluid change? (aka basic settings)

      Your pictures looks like the coolant is going down the lower timing belt cover.

      The upper timing cover could warp over time so even if you get a new gasket, it will continue to leak. A bad PCV valve contributes to the leaks because it allows pressure to build up.

      How much oil from low to high mark

      My MMI was showing the oil at about 1/4 full. So I added about 1/4 quart (approx 200 ml) of oil and now it's at the max full mark.

      Seems to be overly sensitive. What's been your experience?

      First off, somebody messed something up. You're right they should take responsibility for it.

      Second, it probably isn't as bad as you think it is. Could just be a bad misfire. When you try to...

      Fair point. I just wanted to illustrate that I would hesitate for a high mileage 2.0T if there are low mileage TDI's around. But if the price is low enough on the 2.0T, then it would be worthwhile....

      I think VW/Audi cars CAN last a long time IF you maintain it religiously. There are many people in Europe that drive these cars way past 100K miles. The problem for the U.S. market is that they're...

      Around 34K miles. The DSG firmware is technically upgradable, but by now the car is so far out of transmission warranty, I don't know if the dealers would be willing to help.

      I recently purchased a 2013 A3 TDI with DSG. My advice is to look for the newest one with the lowest mileage you can afford.
