    Hah!

    The salesman at the dealers says he knew nothing about the trim or option changes, the first he said he knew was when I phoned on 10th Feb and got him to look in the Jan 05 price guide.

    This hacks me off, wish I could sell something to my customers without having a scooby about what the f**k I was selling.

    £552+VAT Holy smoly. That must make the shiney plastic version £484+VAT Approx. Must make mental note ' Don't scratch it ' /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cry.gif

    That's interesting - Is it a 3dr / 5dr sport or an s-line?

    My dealer told me medial aluminimum was not available with DSG until orders after 1st Jan 05. A car in PDI now could not have been ordered in this year - not with 8 week build times.

    The ones that I saw were both three and five door and they had the silver trim around the gaitor.

    Just a question, anyone have any idea if you get the DIS as standard if you opt for the DSG on a SE spec?

    I thought I read it somewhere on the Audi site but it now looks as though its an option

    Looks like Auid are trying to make it look like a manual gear box like the BM SMG.

    The "older" style had a automatic "look" about it.

    Personally I prefer the leather but I have no idea what mines going to turn up with.

    After seeing the above pic I don't think it look's too bad but I will reserve judgement til I have actually seen my car.

    Hi RedSportback

    No you do not get the DIS with the DSG in SE spec. When I ordered mine I paid extra for the DIS as an option. It's standard on the Sport spec but an optional extra on the SE spec.

    I assume you would get a display which shows the gear numbers and PRNDS in the centre display but with only warning lights rather than the computer and more detailed checking and warning system that DIS provides.

    Got the response from the dealer that i didn't want. They took apart a new and old dsg and apparently the whole top of the gearbox has changed so can't change the shifter. Also on the new ones, even when in auto mode, you now get the 1,2,3,4,5,6 on the dash rather than just D so the switch has changed as well.
