Bought a VW Up last week with ASG transmission (high up). Not as smooth to drive like other automatics out there, a bit slow to change gear and can be jerky when you are heavy on the pedals. On a positive note it has plenty of power, no problem overtaking in motorways. Takes a bit of time to get used to but now I like it very much.

Good to hear a more positive opinion to ASG. I have now taken the plunge with an 66 reg UP ASG.
I have driven it several miles and although not as smooth as a "conventional" box is still OK if not hurried.
I hope to keep you updated with my experience as time goes by.
