    Advice from active 3.2 V6 owners

    Hi there all,

    I'm looking into buying an A3 3.2 V6 3DR to replace my A4 Avant 1.9tdi QS and I was wondering if you could give me a few pointers. I have read the 24 page thread on the software update and read many other forums on them so have a good idea on what to look for when buying and common fault

    My price range is about £4000, I really want a black 8P1 (split grille) one but a lot of them have the DSG box, I'm a mechanic to trade so not really put off by high mileage but I want to know if you recommend the DSG box over the 6 sp Manual. I have in my head that Auto's are for lazy drivers (no offence intended just my opinion) but is there any great benefits of the DSG box?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Cam

    I have a dsg 3.2 and would definitely recommend one. As a normal auto it's good, very smooth and suits the engine, using it as a manual box is also good but i used to get a bit frustrated when it changed gear by itself so I had the gearbox remapped to give more control. Gives me the best of both worlds.

    Never heard of having a gearbox remapped, how much did that cost if you don't mind me asking?
