Thanks
Yeah that doesn't sound good.
I can't find anything specific to the 1.8tsi but would assume that it's the same just lower displacement.

Nah. B6 passat had dsg from 2005-6. Pretty much the same as mk5 golf. Think of it like a bigger golf with heaps more space.

So took the passat in for its 60k dsg service and the mechanic rings to tell me it's not dsg just a normal auto.
Which explains why I have never noticed the Rev match on down shifts etc.

Yeah, my brother just bought one too. His is blue, 2.0T. Same as yours if I recall. I assumed his was DSG too but he got told same as you at Taupo VW.
Might explain why I thought it was a bit sluggish and checked the diverter valve for splits but it was fine.
Did you sot out a new stereo? I've told my brother to get the RCD 330 G or RCD 330 Plus.

Mine came with one of these installed and it works great.

Auto gravity did the install also from what the dealer told me.
Unless he has a reverse camera.
