An auto sti would be pretty sweet, except that I doubt you will be able to add much in the way of power. I had this problem with my 07 GTI. The dual stage clutch could only handle a little over stock power, so it could only handle stage 1 tuning (approx 220 whp).
It took 3 years from the DSG first coming out for a company to have an upgraded clutch for the car.
Does anyone know what the specs of the new auto trans are going to be?
Maybe what kinda power it'll handle?
