GTI 7.5 DSG 6 speed sounds like a diesel

My 2018 GTI in D mode with DSG sounds more like a diesel when revs drop below 1800 especially when car is really hot. I have to resort to manual mode to change down earlier to eliminate the noise.

In my view the MK7.5 is far noisier than my original MK7. Perhaps down to soundproofing or lack of it! Has anyone else noticed this.

maybe look into sound insulation under hood (bonnet!). I know some cars it has been eliminated.

I can't see the lack of underhood soundproofing making that kind of difference.

The base non performance MK7.5 model for 2017-18 came with the old 230ps engine and dq250 dsg only available in some European countries.

My 18 SE did not come with under the hood insulation.

Unfortunately its the old 6-speed. I know I can get a tune on the box that would probably help but its all additional cost. After my 3-year old MK7 GTI was written off in Portugal last year by a Portuguese white van man on his phone I had little option in the UK for getting hold of another GTI with the spec I required.

After a few days with the new car I had to start soundproofing and changing tyres due to cabin noise. I even changed the rear shocks to Koni Active's as I could detect the dreaded rattle that plagued so many early MK7's.

Unfortunately this particular car has in many respects been disappointing and has not been a match for the original MK7. The good thing is that it has been valued at £3000 less than I paid for it 7-months ago with 12k on the clock so I am tempted to change it.
