DSG vs Manual weight??

Anybody have an idea of how much more the DSG weighs over the manual?

^^

Also if we were talking about a 4door Mk6 GTI Manual vs 4door Mk6 R manual, would anybody know how much the axle weights would be compared?

The DSG is about 45 lbs more. Doing some googling, I get different weights for the R...but looks like about 350 lbs heavier than a GTI.

Hmmmm.
Interesting. So the DSG is hardly any heavier ....

Would most of the R's added weight be at the back? Or do the R's have some sort of bevel box up front.

What does your door card sticker say?
It has some axle weights on it right?

Thanks,
