It makes sense, you like automatics and digital gauges. Maybe you can replace your steering wheel with a Playstation controller.

It's technically closer to a manual transmission than an automatic, so it's not an automatic. It's more of an automated manual transmission...

(j/k, I hate people who try to justify that shit. It's an automatic)

Hahaha. It's certainly better and more visceral than a "normal" automatic, and I do enjoy that. I had a *dad car* for ~2 years after selling my Subaru, and the DSG certainly feels better than the standard slushbox.. even the 8speed tiptronic in Wifey's Jetta.

I like it :) that's all that matters. And my DIGITAL DASH!!!

It's an automatic and I f*ing love it, and that's coming from someone who has had a manual in nearly every car since I turned 16.

Sit at a stop and take your foot off the brake really fast and push the go pedal really fast like you could on an automatic and then tell me you can drive it like an automatic. People who drive DSGs like they would an automatic make me ill.

I love my DSG. Ease of an auto, close to the performance of a manual if I want

I don't get the DSG hate on this forum 😂 I love it. I miss having stick a lot of times, but for a daily driver I prefer the auto. Especially with all the stupid stop+go I deal with on my commute
Yeah love my DSG
