That's what I'm wondering too. It's limited for manual and DCT but full 50 Nm for the steptronic. The little info I've been able to extract from my contacts is it has to do with the designs of the trannies (go figure), but it's hard to believe they couldn't handle 50 extra Nm! Anyone know more about this?
