DCT internals shown in action

This might interest some of you. It's a DSG but the principle is the same whether it's DSG or M-DCT, what it shows is just how quick a shift change can happen. The interesting stuff starts at 1:44

thanks

I drove a GTi with DSG about 18 months ago. I was smittten with the DSG gearbox but waiting waiting for another manufacturer to adopt it to a more up-scale car and viola the M3 comes along and I get one of the first DCTs in the country.


I wonder if Audi had put one in the S5 maybe I would have got that?

It's coming in the S5 but not until the S4 gets it first. I reckon you will be pleasantly surprised as to how good the new 7sp DSG will be, I know others here might know more about what Audi will be doing and when things will appear but according to a guy I know from VAG the new gearbox will be the very best available, but then he would say that.

I too take pleasure in stealing the wife's key and taking the GTi for a spin. It's a great little car, better than the 130i in my opinion and the Audi S3 as well. If it had a Quaife lsd it would be a brilliant little track day tool as well. The seats are great, the steering wheels is a peach and the gearbox for a fwd car is as good as it gets.
