    I've got a A3 Sline with DSG on order, but after 3weeks I still don't have a build date.Getting bored!!!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/snore.gif

    Question is two fold, is DSG worth it and secondly if I go manual I can get a car much quicker.

    Thoughts any one!!

    PS Also does anyone know why you cant have a Sline A3 manual?

    Yup, agree with above.

    If you want the most sophisticated and smooth clutchless manual box with sequential or automatic changes the DSG is the best available - no question. It's stunning technology.

    BUT...

    it does take a lot of the fun and driver control out of the driving experience.

    So depends what you're after. For me give me a good manual stick shift and clutch any day. But maybe I'm a dinosaur /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Hmmmmm, shame you cant combine those two cars together, what colour's the alcantra, is it a blue/black split ?

    What other options do these cars have or is that all ?
    I'm swaying towards the red at the moment, only because its manual and has Bose, not a fan of Red cars though.
