I want to say there is some service needed for the DSG at a relatively low interval (30k?) and the cost is around 350-500 for this service. You would likely be better served looking it up on VWvortex or similar.
I have always owned manual cars the C63 being my first auto. I have to say if you drive through traffic...the auto is godsend. I've driven the VW DSG and I walked away amazed on how responsive it is.
