From what I've decoded from Unida767's German built 2.0 L GDI's ETIS page and his graciously providing a picture of the gearbox and the tag on the wire harness directly on top of the gearbox that comes from the Getrag plant in Mexico. The dates are obviously different to the one in my car since his was a 2011 build where as mine was built in 2012. Mine is a U.S. spec car built here, but his car has the exact same 2.0 L engine and the same gearbox as far as I can tell.

Unida767 is in Austrailia.



The getrag tag saying assm in mexico.

Vs mine:


Same basic tag, same basic gearbox, exactly the same engine. The dct doesn't appear to be made in Europe (at least the dry clutch variant).
