      Transmission had WaveTrac Limited Slip Differential professionally installed by Southside Autowerks in Newnan GA last year at about 40k miles.
      Transmission was replaced with a close ratio DSG at 53k just now. Works perfectly, no issues. Southside Autowerks can provide installation if desired, and is an APR distributor for your tuning needs.
      I wanted a close ratio transmission is the reason for the replacement. The 02E is long legged for excellent fuel mileage.
      $2500 OBO. WaveTrac was $1475 + installation which requires the cases to be split twice. It's all set up ready to install.

      Will do brother. I値l give him a shout tomorrow. Fingers crossed it matches up.

      Grant is like Yoda in Jedi terms when comparing mechanics for VAG vehicles. He did some work on my GLI back in the day.

      Spoke with Grant this afternoon, he said you had called, said you were a standup guy.

      I'll make you this deal. $2500 installed. I'll take transmission to Grant, he'll install it for you with DSG service. You'll be good on service schedule for 40k miles. You give Grant $2500.

      Let me know if this works for you.
