Information about rebuild transmission DSG7 DQ500 0BH
The gearbox with DQ500-index is considered one of the most reliable among robotic transmissions with two clutches. We have decided to get acquainted closer with this transmission, to learn about its shortcomings and advantages. And also to be convinced of its reliability and to learn – if really DQ500 is the most reliable robotic transmission which is put in such cars like Volkswagen and Audi brand.
It is remarkable, wandering surfing around the Internet and studying articles about various tuning projects on the basis of cars from VAG, we have noticed that the majority of projects where the power of the turbocharged motor has been increased, the place of standard transmission was taken by DSG DQ500 exactly. It has attracted us genuine interest in a more thorough investigation of this transmission.
Capacity: 5.5-7.2 l.

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.
