    dsg comparisons

    I find the manual stick mode tricky to use as I keep thinking it should be nudge the lever forward to change down.

    What an average... (mpg)

    Heh, tell it like it is slimbloke. Life's too short to worry about mpg - especially when you drive a Mauritius Blue Hydrocarbon Destruction Device

    Sportback mini review

    I also had a loaner 1.6 Sportback when my 3.2 DSG was in for some attention and it took a bit of getting used to after stepping out of the V6. 1. No neck-snapping brakes. 2. No power. 3. No power. 4. No power. 5. Tinny sounding engine. 6. No power. 7. Uncomfortable seats. 8. Likes to rev but...

    Glasgow to Leicester and back on the M6/A50 took three tanks or £150 in Optimax. Just gotta love thrashing that 3.2 V6

    2.0TFSI, manual or DSG?

    I wanted both Quattro and DSG which was unavailable on the 2.0T so went for the 3.2 V6 which came with both. I had been a manual only driver for 20 years until taking the DSG for an extended test drive then using the full-on foot to the floor paddle upshifts with the 3.2 was incredible. Try not...

    A3 3.2 vs 2. FSI vs 2.0TDi MPG?

    I'm on first name terms with the young lady at the local Shell garage since buying the 3.2. Would never change it for a diesel though. Egads the very thought ...

    Manouvering with DSG

    Don't know what you mean by the DSG switching on and off, but it is great around town in D and parking is a doddle, just remember to get rear acoustic parking sensors. Regarding the 3.2's drink problem I had 17mpg from my first few fills but after 1000miles it seems much better at 22mpg and...

    Audi car kit

    You can't retrofit the factory option phone kit and I've been in contact with techs at Cullmann in Germany who supply the OEM gear for Audi and they insist it is a factory build option only. I finally went down the road of a Nokia CK-7W bluetooth kit which works fine with the DVD Nav system...

    How do you know which gearbox you have ??

    How do you know which gearbox you have ??

    The DSG on my 3.2 Sport has a somewhat lazy change in "D" but a snappier zing, zing change in "S" and "M". Remember that it is a fly-by-wire throttle with no physical linkage to the engine and it does not reward light pressure on the go pedal in "D" which only succeeds in slowly increasing the...

    Looks like a 1985 Lancia Delta Integrale turbo rally car from the rear.
