flat towing 2012 VW GTI manual transmission
 
Just replaced my wife's PT Cruiser with a 2012 VW GTI with a 6 speed manual transmission. Question can I flat tow this car and has anybody done the set up to the car to flat tow

You might want to post this in the "Toads" section. There it might get you a quicker and better response.

Good luck.

Is the a real manual transmission or is it a DSG ( paddles on the steering )?

It is the real manual with a clutch pedal not the DSG

That's good then, and you should have no problems towing it.

Officially VW will say no. The manual has a distance and speed limitation. Neither supporting RV speeds or distances. Our local VW service rep says it can be done technically and says he has tecnical confirmation from VW.

I work with these transmission everyday and I can say that there is nothing in them that will get damaged from towing.
