What???? I drive to have ALL shifts successful. But I'm glad you're trying!

The op has never even owned a manual. The op wanted an opinion on the car he found, not how much torque it can handle, or if it's better with K04 and a DSG flash, or if you if you know how to drive a manual.

Just an update: I test drove a manual, and although it felt nice, I still went with the DSG. We found an amazing deal on one down in Atlanta (3.5 hour drive) and it was an autobahn package, VW certified, low mileage, and a 2010. I actually love the DSG transmission because it feels a lot like a manual, just without having the 3rd pedal or the fear of missing a gear. I'm not saying manuals are bad, I just love the DSG over the manual version . But thank you everyone for answering and I am going to go take pictures of my car now .

Thanks again DD

Ok. Here's how I see it. I came from a 2007 dsg mkv gti. I got the car because at the moment it was the only choice I had. So I had it for like a year. I had stage 2 on it. I liked the car. And the power it was putting down. But I wasn't really enjoying It. The things that bothered me were how laggy it was. Like from a dead stop. Even on Normal take offs it wasn't that responsive. Since mine was 07 it had launch control. It literally took 1 second after I let go the brake to take off. And I've driven other dsg Gtis that were the same way. Something else that I didn't really like was like when I would go to a car meet or whatever and ppl asked about my car and I told them it was automatic they were like -_- and I felt the same way too. Like it felt weird to have a "sport car" automatic. The time came and I bought a mk6 cw 6speed. Since I got it I've put apr turbo back, apr 1+2 intake, and stage 2 tune. And god I love this car. I feel like I can connect with it. Like the car does what I want it too not the ecu. It's just much more fun in a way. That's my .2 cents.

Really? Do you shift that bad that when you don't grind a gear you are happy?

If you want to go k04 or higher, I would go dsg. The manual clutch can't hold the k04 power, so it'd be another thing you'd have to do in order to go k04. If I had to do it again, I'd have gone DSG. If you will only look at stock tuning, stage one, or stage 2, then manual is the way to go, a lot more fun to drive....

If the driveability of the DSG, especially at low speeds was better I'd agree. I also hate how DSG disconnects you from the road. The only two cars I ever went into corners too hot in were both DSGs. My '08 GTI and an '11 Scirocco R.

DSG is faster tho, but there is nothing like driving a dumped manual car over speed bumps
completely agree, i have owned multiple manual vehicles, and i test drove a DSG before i drove a manual gti and i hated every second of it, was no impressed. I could care less that is shifts faster, im not a racecar driver, i dont track my car, so just having more fun driving the streets, Manual all day long
