    Audi UK executives have been hinting for some years that in their opinion manuals are soon to die even in the UK and DSG will become the only option on most models.

    WLTP is being used by other VAG UK importers as well to reduce the number of variants, especially manual transmissions.

    I guess this means franchises will be busy getting paid for changing mechs no, and cars will go to scrap heap long before expected & since auto trans falls on ground, planned obsolescence?

    Volkswagen to invest $4 billion to build digital businesses, software

    Rather than having around 70 different sensors and controllers operating independently within each vehicle, the new cars will connect the various sensors using the new proprietary software operating system.

    Oh dear

    Writing, and PROPERLY testing, an OS isn't something I would trust VAG to do - trying to do it has broken more than one technology company in the past and I suspect will break more in the future.

    Linux, Windows, etc. aren't perfect (Windows is far from perfect) but given the number of people using them they have had a lot of bugs taken out already.

    I really doubt they would start from scratch. Heck, neither Apple (with MacOS or iOS) or Google (with Android) started from bare metal. The former are built on top of some BSD variant, and the latter Linux.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    This is what is the inevitable with existing intrusion of foreign nations & that don't respect boundaries to protect it.
    Bare metal is most likely, when you want to make things all the more vapor barriers & to protect it from corrosion?
