Diving deeper into the transmission over the past week, I was able to separate the gears and inspect the shift forks. It appears that my 1-2 fork is steel, but the rest are bronze. I've ordered a full set of steel forks to add to the build. Pics below:

I was also messing around with the diff codes again, and tried driving around with the control module plugged in, but the actual pump unit disconnected. This successfully disabled the VAQ diff without throwing any error codes! I hope to utilize this with the LSD setup in the future.
I dropped my trans last night and pulled the case expecting to see the same (2019 gti) and I’ve got all the steel forks. TGN code (which pull up nothing online... I don’t even like if it’s the O2Q or the 0FB trans)
Was having engagement issues and wanted to make sure it wasn’t bend/opens forks... also the tech broke the locking pin and when I found out it was metal I wanted to fish it out and or see if it cause damage. Lucky it was stuck to the magnet.That's crazy! Why do you have your trans apart??
My steel forks have arrived as well as the bronze feet, so I've solved that problem, but it definitely would have been nicer to save the $$ and have steel from the factory!
they are these the "new version"
