    But if you go for the auto, you will be spending money at some point in the future to fix the gearbox.

    The 118TSI had 2 major flaws, alas 1 of those flaws exist in the 90TSI (the 7spd DSG) ... either buy a manual or a different MK6 with the 6spd DSG.
    Current: 2018 MY19 Golf R manual Lapiz Blue + DAP (mods are underway ) 2018 MY18 Golf 110TSI Trendline manual White (with mods now 150TSI) 2014 Amarok TSI Red (tuned over 200kw + lots of extras) 2013 Up! manual Red 2017 Mustang GT manual Race Red with mods now making 370kw
    10 Previous VWs and some others ...

    I agree completely. They are a great looking car, but for the love of whoever you hold holy stay away from the 7 speed and the twinchargers.
