Thread: Thinking of a new car..

  1. #1

    Thinking of a new car..

    I've been eyeing up a R32 MK5 but was thinking of fitting the turbo kit (i know these kits aren't cheap) my question is... Do i go manual or DSG? As i've heard the dsg boxes have a torque limit will this get in the way of any plans i have for power?... Thanks for any help you can give...

    I'm pretty sure that there are re-maps or software upgrade available to the dsg boxes o cope with power increases me personally if to for the day I drove an auto/triptronic BMW not long ago and to be fair it wa weird at first but sport mode is great fun and if you do a lot of town driving the auto box is ideal for sitting I traffic

    DSG tends to break down a lot more than the manual box cars... and it can be twice as expensive when it does...
