DSG vs 6-speed weight ?

How much heavier is a MK5 GTi with DSG than a traditional 6-speed GTi?

I would imagine the weight would be negligable. Is this the only thing causing you to choose? Manual ftw every time.

for fun, I agree with you, however for a daily driver, the dual clutch trannys are a pretty good compromise...definitely a step up from single clutch auto trannys.....

If cats always land on their feet, and toast always lands butter side down, what would happen if you strapped burnt toast to the back of a cat and dropped it?
