Budgeting to replace wheels but can't budget $100 to fix all that 😒


Yawnnnnn


What's for lunch?
I've never owned an automatic daily, wife has, but even most of hers were manuals.

If I bought a new GTI or R, I'd get the DSG too.

Sorry, VW is to blame. It's shit.

Automatic daily is kinda weird, I'm glad ours is so different from anything else we own. It's the only tall vehicle that doesn't feel like a racecar, so it's not too difficult to switch.

I don't know if I could be convinced to buy a DSG, but that's just a preference thing.

Half agree, I'd simply never buy a new VW. The whole brand is arse nowadays
As far as I'm aware... the MK7 and the MK6 have the same manual transmission, just different gearing. I faintly remember reading a post where one guy swapped the 7 into the 6 and it bolted right up. By the looks of urotuning which says the same shortshifters are available for the MK8, then I'd say that they also use the 02Q transmission... so it should really be all the same across the last 3 (if not 4) generations. Haven't driven a manual mk7/mk8 so I can't compare wrist dyno results.

Can you do that at your own dealership? Just like...drive the car into service and leave it there?
