    S tronic vs tiptronic

    Hello, Iím new here, probably this discussion has been done to death. But, search results havenít resulted in fruitful answers.

    Anyway, I donít have audi yet, but Iím looking to buy one soon. Itís going to be audi a4 b8 avant 3.0 tdi quattro auto or a5 same spec. So my search results on several evenings resulted in dsg (s tronic) is the best gearbox ever with shift times blink of an eye, feeling blah blah until it breaks and as far as I can tell it will eventually, even more so if you add extra Nm on top. Tiptronic on the other hand is decent 🤷*♂️

    I will try to just drive the car with just a remap for a year or two (probably couple months), but inevitably I know I will modify something to have extra few hp and nm.
    Knowing that, which gearbox is the way to go? It needs to hold..... letís say ~800-900Nm. Oh, almost forgot, I need paddle shifts. I know dsg usually comes with those, but you can manually shift in tip, donít you? Wouldnít it be just as simple as fitting paddles and connecting some wires to shift from the steering wheel?


    Tl;dr s tronic or tiptronic reliability in general or for 800nm; can you fit paddle shifts on both?

    Future thanks, probably
