      Tried the addition of DSG paddles to the stock wheel and the connections are already in the wheel, with a little VAG-COM work you are golden. Works like a charm. If you are thinging about adding a GLI or GTI wheel with paddles to your DSG equipped TDI with MF wheel it is a bolt on swap with a little coding. You can also add the paddles to your stock wheel which will look like the EOS.

      That's great news.
      I wonder why VW screwed owners of other 2.0T DSG vehicles out of the paddle shifters? It's kind of puzzling.

      Perhaps because paddle shifters will be used by those that prefer something sporty? Thus, having them on "sport" models.

      how did you actually attach the paddles? They just hang off the back of the wheel?

      And, with the exception of the suspension, how exactly is the 2.0T Jetta any less a "Sport" model.
      Personally, I think it should have at least been an option.

      I was planning on cutting out the space for the paddles where the mounting point is. If you look on a post about filling the paddle holes (Adam and rabbit) you will see what I mean. In the mean time I found a GTI wheel that I wiill use instead and if I like it will be selling the paddles and the stock MF wheel

      great job on the retrofit!
      I am looking at getting the GTI wheel with the dsg paddles.
      Can you please post what changes are required via vagcom to enable this?

      I would think the GTI wheel would be the way to go.

      Sick of people calling the 2.0T Jetta w/ DSG not "sporty". It's plenty "sporty" and people buying them are looking for "sporty" cars. If they didn't want sporty they woulda got the 2.5L jetta with the default pos (sorry) automatic.

      I totally prefer the 2.0T jetta over the GLI, this mod makes it perfection.

      There has to be some incentives to buy a GLI model over a standard 2.0t. Don't see why this can't be one of them.

      So if the two were the same price you would still pick the 2.0T Jetta over the GLI? I think not.

      It's no secret that the 2.0T is the luxury model, the "GLX" of the new Jettas, while the GLI is, and always has been, the sporty model.
