I can't stand autos... You've GOT to have a solid linkage between the wheel and engine for driving to 'feel' right, and not be wasting power, and that's before we even get on to the fact that most auto boxes have the shift points in places which are completely alien to most manual drivers... But I've driven a 2.0TDi Passat with the DSG and it was fine, didn't irk me at all, in auto and manual mode.

Even the low speed control wasn't bad; certainly nothing like what I'd been led to expect by JC!
