I didn't tune my car until 28k miles and currently at 48k without a single slip. It really just depends on your driving ability and also luck of the draw when it comes to the strength of the clutch.

As someone who has been driving manual transmission vehicles for the last 20 years, I can tell you that it has nothing to do with driving ability.

OMG I hit full boost in 4th and it slipped, I'm a shit driver! wtf

I calculate using Fuelly (not the dash display, which is a joke) and I haven't run a full tank only on the tune yet. I should have results by the end of the week, but they'll be a bit skewed as I'm getting used to the added 'fun'.

I got my tune with 800 miles on the car and have not noticed any slippage of the clutch. Right near the post 100 mile break-in mark, i did a full launch control start and while i spun through 3rd and noticed the transmission really did not want to shift while the tires are in free spin ( who would have guessed), I have not had any issues with slippage.

And Patrick, the ticket was on I35 in Kyle. I commute to work every day in San Marcos (30 miles each way). Ive been doing this for years and always cruise at 80 with zero police interactions. I have an escort 8500 but I was hit by laser and you cant really do much when that happens.

Who claps for themselves? Isn't the goal to get others to clap you on?

Op - sorry about the ticket. On my way back from getting tuned I was WOT 110mph+ on an open highway when a cop passed down the other direction. They were in dense traffic. I got immensely lucky that afternoon. Anyways I feel remorseful that I didn't get caught and you did so please accept my misguided apology.

Ahh, so you're DSG. That explains the lack of slippage.

So re-flash tunes don't disable the annoying adapting behavior in the ecu? What about the annoying throttle delays?
