Car wont speed shift

Any ideas on why my TDI wont allow me to shift quicker? It always lets the rpms drop before it allows me to shift.

The 2009 TDI's with the DSG trannys shift about as fast as you can power shift a normal stick.

If clutch master or slave cylinder is leaking internally, and pedal is to the floor the clutch may not be releasing fully.

This would also cause the syncro's to delay the shift for a closer RPM match, or slower lineup with the syncro clutches.

Transmission linkage adjustment? Here's a cool link for shifters..
