I want an IC - but I want it to be a noticeable upgrade, not something minor.
the dsg is wayyyy more efficient to me since i got it tuned. shifts better and faster.

Hmm... I would like "D" to be better.

If I put the car into S, it's a completely different animal to be honest. Better than the manual shifting too IMO lol

ya. its not noticeable much when you first get it. . until you have it, and then remove it. (using uniconnect at home) then you see everything you are missing. its like tightening all the bolts on your tranny so it doesnt sound loose anymore.

but D mode sucks and always will. no tune will change that. my car is a dog in D mode, every shift feels like its bogging the whole car down, but its amazing with manual shifts in M mode. wish there wasnt such a ledge there. the D mode shifts too early in every gear, right when you are approaching the power band. thats why it bogs so bad. i want it to shift in D mode like it does in M mode. but i guess there wouldnt be any need for M mode then... but if D mode shifted just like M mode did... i wouldnt need M mode to begin with, and i would stay in D mode.

when you can choose your exact shift points at home, that's when the game will change. i want to test every 250rpm shift point from 2000-5000rpms in D mode to see which one is perfect for my desires. And even have different shift points for each gear. that will never happen, too much risk when customers tune themselves.

D mode
1st gear should shift at 3500
2nd gear should shift at 4500
3rd gear should shift at 5000
4th gear should shift at 5500
(just guesses, i would need to do testing at every rpm for the real numbers.)

i know its all throttle dependent also, and the above is fairly impossible to quantify or reproduce.

And D mode needs the same throttle input setting as M mode. The M mode throttle is a lot more responsive for the distance traveled.

hmm... so D mode sucks still, but the shifts etc are all still better? I'd very much like it to be better, but honestly it's more than fine for my average driving, even though I find myself using M mode about half of the time unless I'm doing a long cruise..

well, i think anyone with any DSG tune would say D mode sucks. D mode is very hard to get working equal to M mode, maybe it's not even possible, don't know. but like i tested last week, i went back to stock DSG tune for a test. I couldnt stand it after a 15 min drive and had to flash back to my Unitronic DSG tune. You don't notice the difference until you have to do without it.

I have the Unitronic DSG tune, it makes a big difference in D & manual mode. The manual mode is faster and so is the D mode but in regular traffic the Unitronic D mode does't upshift as much and it downshifts too.

s mode with the tune... is pretty nuts. I have used my D mode a lot more since i got the tune to tell any differences. deff downshifts way more keeping power ready. like they said city driving with it, eh.. but i am overly satisfied with stage 2 dsg tune

is the difference anything that a video can pick up? I've honestly never really seen a review of the DSG tune.. or my search just didn't work.. would've gotten it at the same time as my k04 if I felt it would be a good buy lol

Like I posted on DFWeuros let me know where you dyno would like to dyno the same day as a comparison between the two.

Hmm, I think I can even hear the difference of it shifting... I've been trying to find a side-by-side (or picture in picture) comparo but can't... maybe I'll make one if I get a DSG tune.. I need something better to record with though than my cell phone or DSLR lol

Sounds good! I'm thinking Alamoautosports, or somewhere else (not sure of where I can get dyno'd in the dfw area, preferably closer to the Dallas side..) but I'd like that! WOOHOO someone else that's unitronic! lol
