you got the right one the dsg is notoriously slow to react and some say dangerous quite a lot about it the problem of the hesitancy associated with the VW DSG gearbox and the
danger this causes when pulling out of road junctions and entering
islands.
 can this problem be
sorted out electronicaly? By that I mean re-programing via the ECU

It stems from VW's ridiculous nannying mechanism that means you have to
press the footbrake to move the selector from N to D. The switching can
be slow to react and can make the assumption that because you were just
braking you don't want to accelerate

Ok guys a bit pic heavy but more of the gti as promised.

I have only completed 2 mods and that's wind deflectors and full white led interior light conversion and have a bluetooth kit planned to add but dont wanna spend much on it if u read below you will see why.

Opinion on the car, well tbh I cant wait to get rid of it. Dont get me wrong its fast, comfy, looks and sounds great, its loaded with full leather sat nav auto lights and wipers but I just think its not me I regret not getting an st so badly. I now feel like im withdrawn from ford and dont fit well with the gti at all so trying my damnest to get my gf to get a ford so I can borrow it to fulfil my ford withdrawals. Its honestly that bad im planning my next car which is just under 4 years away. So good news here is that my next car will be another ford focus but I have decided to get the one I truly fell for when I first laid eyes on it the focus rs500 yeah I know big money and high insurance but im hoping that the mk3 rs will be out and reduce the prices. But this is 4 years away so if I get one I will be ecstatic but if not then it will be a standard rs.

Thanks for reading guys
