Vw Golf 6 Owners Manual
The information in the MK7 owners manual was updated very slightly with the MK7. In fact a regeneration can take place a whopping 1MPH less than in the Mk6. It also gives mention of the DSG gearbox available in the Golf.

Volkswagen and Audi have had some variation of 6-speed manual transmission available in their transverse platform vehicles since around 2001. The 02M 6-speed debuted in the Mk1 Audi TT 225 Quattro before being rolled out into higher production models, much like the DSG did some years later in the Audi TT 3.2 Quattro,
One of the more confusing aspects of the VW transmissions is their naming scheme. You will often hear these transmissions called either 02M, 02Q, or 0FB, you might also hear them referred to as the MQ350. Technically either way is correct, as MQ350 encompasses all three of these 6-speed manual transmissions. As a reference, MQ250 refers to the 5-speed manual transmissions found in base model cars such as the VW Golf.
The 02M is a compact gearbox specially developed to offer sporty driving characteristics and maximum efficiency in a small space. The same location designed for a 5-speed manual could then be used for the 6-speed manual without any other changes. VW achieved this by taking a standard gearbox design, which features a single input shaft and single output shaft, and split the output shaft into two separate units. This creates a slightly taller but significantly shorter in length design.
Similar to all other modern manual transmissions from VW and Audi, such as the 02A, 02J, and 01E models, the 02M is cable-shifted, and power is sent through a hydraulically-actuated clutch. While the 02M has gradually been refined since its introduction, the fundamental design and operation are unchanged since it was first introduced.
The 0FB is the latest and greatest 6-speed manual transmission on offer from VW in the USA. Since Audi is no longer offering manual transmissions in their entry-level and smaller sporty models, like the A3 and TT, we only see this on the 2015 and up Golf R in the USA.
There are a few issues that can occur on the 6-speed manual 02M, 02Q, or MQ350 transmissions. Typically, these result from high mileage, heavy use or abuse, or related damage due to some other part failing.
Like all transverse transmissions from Volkswagen and Audi, the family of 6-speed manuals is a transaxle design, which means the gears, synchros, bearings, and final drive components such as the differential share lubrication oil. VW specifies a GL4-spec oil for this application, which means it is approved for brass synchronization components to avoid damage or wear. GL5 oil, which is commonly found in the same weights as its GL4 cousin, is generally not recommended for synchronized transmissions as the additive package can damage more sensitive components. GL5 is designed for differential or other hypoid gear applications but not for use in a gearbox. GL5 does have higher shear and shock resistance than plain GL4, so purchasing a high-quality GL4+ oil, such as LIQUI MOLY 75w90 model 20012, ensures maximum protection without unwanted side effects.
There are a huge number of performance upgrades available for the 6-speed manual VW and Audi transmissions. They range from simple accessories to major components, but all are designed to improve the feel, reliability, or performance of the transmission for street or track use.
From there, modifications tend to become less common and more specialized in nature. Power handling of the 6-speed manuals is not as low as the 258 lb-ft rating from the factory might suggest, but there is a limitation in terms of how much power and torque you can safely put through these gearboxes. It is not at all unheard of 02M, 02Q, or 0FB transmissions easily handling 350-400 lb-ft, provided that the driver is not unnecessarily rough. There are some upgrades for drag racing and extreme power applications to help increase reliability in these less-common applications.
The popular Volkswagen Golf heads into its seventh generation for 2016. Available in 2-door and 4-door hatches as well as a 4-door "sportwagen". The Golf 1.8T is powered by a 170-horsepower turbocharged 1.8L 4-cylinder. This is mated to either a 5-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. The Golf GTI, available with either two or four doors, comes with a potent turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder that produces 210 horsepower and 258 lb-feet of torque. It's offered with a choice of 6-speed conventional manual or DSG dual-clutch transmission.The Sportwagen, based on the 4-door Golf hatch, features 30 cubic-feet of rear cargo space, expandable to an impressive 66 cubic-feet with the rear seats down. It comes with the 1.8L engine and the same choice of transmission options.At the top of the range is the Golf R. With 4 doors, a very impressive engine and all-wheel drive, it is the ultimate European "hot-hatch." The Golf R comes with a highly tuned version of the GTI's 2.0L turbocharged engine that makes almost 300 horsepower. It comes with only the 6-speed DSG transmission, but is packed with premium standard features that include a sport-tuned suspension, 18-inch alloy wheels, HID headlamps, heated power-adjustable leather seats and dual-zone climate control.Two-door 1.8T models are offered in base and S trims. The base trim includes 15-inch alloy wheels, power-adjustable and heated side mirrors, Bluetooth audio streaming and hands-free connectivity, an 8-speaker stereo with iPod hookup, 5.8-inch touchscreen and HD radio, as well as cloth seating with a 60/40 split folding rear seat. The S trim adds an upgraded radio with a 6.5" touchscreen and satellite radio, steering wheel audio controls, smartphone-integration, remote keyless entry and a leather shift knob.For the 4-door and Sportwagens, three trims are offered: S, SE and SEL. In the SE, buyers will find 17-inch wheels, rain-sensing windshield wipers, halogen fog lights, a power panoramic sunroof and a rearview camera. Inside, amenities include a Fender premium audio system with eight speakers and a subwoofer and heated front seats. The top-of-the-line SEL trim includes 18-inch wheels, touchscreen navigation, dual-zone automatic climate control and front sport seats with 12-way power-adjustable driver's seat.Available packages include a Lighting Package, with adaptive bi-Xenon headlights, which turn in conjunction with the car's movements down the road. The Driver Assistance Package features Park Distance Control with front and rear proximity sensors, as well as a Forward Collision Warning that alerts you when there's trouble ahead. All Golfs come with standard safety features that include anti-lock brakes, traction control and engine braking assist, plus a host of airbags to protect the cabin. 041b061a72
