    Should be a short thread...

    Is S-Tronic the same as DSG, i.e. just a rename, or is there actually a difference?

    Wouldn't want Bowfer to buy one by mistake :)

    i think they the same but apparent there have been a number of variants, upgraded versions etc all with different part numbers - i guess they have had to gradually improve it to keep up with the increased power and torque levels of the engine range.

    I can tell you what the S stands for,and it sure isn't 'sport'...

    It's just a rename because Audi want to distance themselves from VW.
    VW must have won the 'who keeps the DSG name' game of rock/scissors/paper.

    2.0 TFSI have always had LC as well. The diesel models did not have LC until until the 170 TDI was released.
