Merits and Demerits

Let’s begin with shortcomings:

  • it is necessary to monitor it, and to change the oil in time;
  • at the wrong gas discharge, unpleasant pushes are felt;
  • this DSG-7 has a peculiar feature which irritates. It is a small kickback, until the operation of the arrester during the parking and transition from the D/R mode to mode P. It is worth to remember that while parking too close to the standing cars;
  • this transmission has rather big weight;
  • quite an expensive repair.
  • From advantages:
  • lightning gear shift. Besides the standard hydraulic torque converter, switching happens more smoothly and pushes are not felt, upon transition to the following drive;
  • start control (opportunity to start with two pedals);
  • the blowout of harmful CO2 is less;
  • existence of mode S (sport) and opportunities to switch drives in the manual mode;
  • the most important advantage of DSG-7 DQ500 is the ability «to digest» up to 600 nanometers of torque in the drain.

On the Internet it is possible to find various projects with SWAP DQ500 gearboxes (generally they are SWAPing on Octavia RS, Golf GTI and R). One of such projects is the well-known Volkswagen Golf R with 3.6-litre motor and completions of HGP, which capable to overtake even sports cars, such as Lamborghini Huracan.
