    Is it the mechatronic unit you need which is merely the brains of the gearbox or the actual box itself. If the latter I feel you are better stripping the car for parts and scrapping it off

    There is a company I found who does recon mechatronic units as I was scared to death in buying a 2nd hand car with a DSG box. I bought a manual in the end as I heard too many stories about DSG issues. I will see if I can root them out and post a web link
