In the end I went for the turbo just to get the DSG which was really the main feature I was after.
Still stuck with westwoods though, chicago's a bit to "gangsta" for me. Each to there own though.
Haven't got the DSG, so I can't comment, but I think you've done the right thing by getting the turbo. It's a cracking engine and always is chosen as the one to get in the magazine reviews (this side of the pond anyway!! )
You'll love it..."gangsta" Dave
