This isn't the first car with a dual clutch automated manual....VW has been using them for years under the DSG moniker. The DSG transmission in the GTI has been proven to be exceptionally reliable (apart from the recall/ defect that was found in the mechatronics unit)

It is often the very last thing people upgrade when modifying. The DSG is actually the preferred performance transmission in the GTI...the manual starts to slip MUCH sooner than the DSG will.
