I am sure happy with mine. There was a recall on early 2004's so check before you buy. It only affected 145 units so unlikely. Clutch replacment. Now that I've had the car for awhile, I've finally learned how to work the DSG. It is definetly a change from the standard automatics. It drives much better (easier in my opinion) when using the tiptronic system. The shift by wire controls on the steering wheel are awsome. My only complaint is the tires. I have the Pirelli 225/40ZR-18's and with only 9200 miles, they are showing the tread (yellow lines inbedded in the groves) ware markers. Since I'm a high mileage driver, I'm evaluating some all season tires that should work well and provide extended life.
