You can certainly have DSG and Quattro.   I think you had a DSG 
A3.  Paddle shifters absolutely.  And the DSG, while having automatic 
modes, really isn't an automatic slushbox transmission.  That's 
probably why you liked it so well.

The TT could be had with DSG and Quattro in 3.2 guise.   Pretty sure 
the old R32 had a DSG option in Europe as well. (Also 3.2 VR6 and 
'Quattro' same as the TT)

I think you're thinking of CVT not DSG.
