So I got a hold of a component ID’s from a Golf 2013 model, and compared it to my car logs from 08/2011.

Bold = identical
Red = older
Green = newer
Both gearboxes are identical, as they have the same hardware ID. Software is only minor revision compared to mine. Revision line is different but I am not sure what is this covering. Maybe somebody else can shine some light on this.
So all in all, if VW is claiming that they have built new revised gearbox, I don’t see it here, as the Hardware should have changed as well? I think they just adjusted the software to make the shifting a bit faster, and at higher RPM’s. Which results in higher fuel consumption, than advertised. And yes, I know that fuel consumption is already lower than advertised, I mean, even lower… And they still can’t provide definitive proof that this even works. Because it does not work on my gearbox.
Dear Volkswagen, stop lying to your customers!
