I'm in the market for a GTI and the ones I'm looking at are in the 70k+ mileage area and I have to seriously consider a DSG model because my girl might occasionally need my car and can not drive stick. I put about 25k *mostly* highway miles on my car per year.
I have test driven three DSG's and one 6spd and coming from a 350z 6spd, the manual GTI was a freaking dream to shift and that is where my heart really is but the DSG was fun, fast and I can see rush hour traffic being much easier.
So my question to DSG owners is, do you have any regrets?? Maintenance wise? Cost wise? Fun wise? Did the novelty of the paddles wear off? Or whatever wise??
Thanks in advance!
