Volkswagen Golf GTI - which options would you select?

We want a Golf GTI with DSG for fun and practicality. Would you recommend the Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) for a more comfortable ride and/or the GTI Performance pack for added fun? Reviews on these extras seem mixed so your expert view would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, get the Dynamic Chassis Control and the GTI Performance Pack. Don't get the 6-speed wet clutch DSG. Wait until it's replaced with the new 7-speed wet clutch DSG that works far better.
