Wow, looks like a headache. Do you have all the certification from the re-build that you need?

http://www.cyberdriveillinois.com/pu...sos_dop102.pdf

Documentation
The following documents must be presented before the
inspection begins:
• Properly assigned salvage certificate in the name of the
rebuilder exactly as it appears on the rebuilder’s
license. Upon arrival at the station, the
odometer reading must be noted on the application.
• Properly completed application, in the name of the
rebuilder, for a rebuilt title.
• Properly completed salvage affirmation identifying all
essential parts that have been replaced on the rebuilt
vehicle.
• The original uniform invoices (bills) for all essential
parts changed; junking titles/applications in the name
of the rebuilder for vehicles from which essential parts
have been used to rebuild the salvage vehicle.
• IDOT vehicle inspection report and properly affixed non-
expiring sticker.
• Valid driver’s license of the driver of the salvage vehicle.

I do a bit but only since this dsg is a little rough around the edges. :/ gonna see if vw has any factory warranty left for it just in case somethings wrong.

Well the dmv trip was less than spectacular today. I had to pay $196 to the secretary of state and get temp plates. I guess i will find out in a few weeks if this thing is good to stay on the road, if i just need to get it inspected, or if i need to get a god damn rebuilder to do some bullshit paperwork to make it legit enough for illinois lol.

BASICALLY heres the issues I've gathered.

When in drive mode, and trying to stop, the trans rows through the gears and gives me some resistance to stopping. Like stopping is not very linear and feels kinda rough. I really didn't notice it during test driving, yall know how that goes lol.

Idling of course is rough due to full stg2 engine mounts but it really feels bad when starting off from a stop. Sometimes i feel the car engage the gear slightly delayed and it doesn't exactly 'hit' or 'buck' as some have reported but it doesn't feel too pretty either. SOME gearshifts are delayed when i hit the paddle, if i am going WOT in full auto mode it seems to stay at redline before shifting sometimes. Believe it only is for the odd gears which seems reminiscent of some's complaints of a faulty mech. solenoid.

Finally, sometimes downshifting is a tad delayed, or 1st gear really is not smooth where the ones i test drove did seem to downshift without feeling a thing.

NO DSG FARTS!

My DSG feels like a bad stick driver sometimes. Took a long time to get use to slow engagement off idle compared to a standard automatic.

After 2 years and after the UM DSG tune, I am used to it now. I don't miss the 6M at all in these cars.

When it's cold, DSG feels like shit. Doesn't matter how smooth you try to be from a stop, it will be rough. More so if you treat the gas pedal like an on/off switch, like in a traditional automatic.

Once it's fully warmed up, it's nice. If I'm in manual mode, I never downshift to 1st or drive in 1st. In that case, I'm in bumper to bumper traffic, I'll switch to D.

When I'm at a redlight and want to get a smooth start, I usually back off the brake pedal, just enough to where I feel the wheels wanting to turn. Otherwise if you get off the brake pedal right away and quickly go to gas pedal, you might get a delay and it will be a rough start.

Here's a good read about how DSG transmission works, think it helps to get rid of some of its quirks. http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...ips-and-Tricks
