I've had the Taos for a couple of weeks and I like the way the DSG unit works, but I have a question. When the car is stopped (auto start is disabled), do you nudge it into neutral while you wait to get moving again? It seems to me that if the car is idling in gear, the clutches will be slipping. I rode many years on motorcycles with multi-plate oil bath clutches, and although an oil bath clutch has an exceptionally long life, it will eventually wear out.

Never mind. I watched a couple of informative videos that explain how it works very well. All new to me!
