Is it necessary to let the car warm up for 10 min because of the DSG?
I heard that somewhere. I usually give it like 3 or 4 min and slowly cruise through my neighborhood before i have to get up to speed.
definitely don't idle the car for long. if it's truly cold out, a battery tender will help the battery last longer to keep CCAs up.

I am fortunate enough to have my vehicle parked in a heated garage, but none the less, I usually start it up and within 10 seconds I’m backing out of the garage and I drive it like any other car, even in cold temps (10F-30F), usually the first 20seconds I take it a bit slower than normal. Never had any issues among the 3 R’s I’ve owned.

I wouldn’t worry about your DSG too much. Unless extremely cold (talking -30 or less C) I wouldn’t idle for more than a minute or so. That’s usually enough.
If extremely cold, I let the car idle for 2-3 minutes to get the juices flowing. When it was extremely cold last winter, I did hear some whine in first gear only at low speeds. That went away after a few minutes of driving.

I'm a boomer so I don't know anything. I drive immediately upon a cold start and keep the revs below 4K until the oil temps are 180 degrees or higher. I don't got WOT much, but only after oil temps are 200+. My cars and DSG seem to tolerate this nonsense okay.

For this reason I wish the Golf had a block heater.
Living here in Canada I just let it i'd while i get my phones bluetooth connected and whatnot, and get on the road after 30seconds to a minute.
I just keep the RPM's below 3000 until I see 50ºC for the oil temp.
