The 7 speed on the 2.0 does require servicing as it's a wet clutch like the 6 speed. It's the high torque (430Nm) DQ381 like on the Cupra, not the cheaper dry clutch, DQ200, that has low torque (250Nm) tolerance and multiple issues.The smaller engines get twist beam rear suspension so the ride will be different compared to the IRS on the larger engines. I wonder if there are any Suffolk members on here with an IRS FR that I could try? Probably a long shot but worth an ask...
Thanks for the other info, good to know the 7sp doesn't need servicing.
I believe the DQ381 requires servicing every 80000 miles rather than the 40000 of the 6 speed DQ250 it replaced.
