Should I buy a 2011 GTI thatís missed itís DSG service?

Hey guys

As per

The logbook around 60000 kms (40k miles) doesnít have the Ďdsg oil and filter changeí box ticked.

It also doesnít have this at all anywhere else in the service history.

Is it worth buying and getting immediately serviced or should I pass on it completely?

Is a 2011 currently at 93000 kms in total (57k miles) so about half way due to its next DSG service.

I drove it yesterday and shifting was fine, no jerkiness or anything noted. Also confirmed with the original mechanic that they didnít do the DSG service. Other than that the service history seems pretty extensive.

Would this be a bit too risky?

Could have been done elsewhere or DIY..? Iíve done mine but didnít document, so anyone who buys mine would be in the same boat, except if I explain to them I changed it.

Just saying. Sometimes people skip the dealer because they are insanely overpriced for dsg service.
