Hello everyone. I am from Brisbane,Australia and am about to sign a contract on a 2006 Jetta FSI Turbo DSG. Great car. I have an XR8 v8 Ford Falcon and this VW is the girlfriends ride. We were really impressed with the quality of the car and the way it had been looked after. I have a question for someone though. We have the DSG gearbox and what I think is called a MFSW. I was wondering if it is easy to retrofit the paddle buttons to allow us to manually shift the gears when we want to. I will commence looking around the forum but if anyone can help me out straight away then that would be great. Thanks.
Leon

If you already have the MFSW you should have the correct control module. However, the buttons cannot be added to your existing wheel because the spokes are different. If you buy a wheel with the paddle shifters it's plug-play assuming that the control module code is correct. If the module needs a different code it takes about 1 minute to change it.

See here for more details: http://www.myturbodiesel.com/1000q/a5/paddle-shifter-steering-wheel-swap.htm under Retrofitting paddle shifters or the MFSW buttons onto a non-paddle shifter wheel
