With all the assists off, does the GTI exhibit throttle lift oversteer easily? Im still on the fence about turning it off after I have had a few throttle lift mishaps on my other car at autox the last few months

It's not too easy with stock suspension. I tired on a few occasions on a road course with all assists off, but the rear isn't stiff enough and the front too heavy. It'll certainly require a lot of countersteer (by that I mean steering angle to the outside of the direction the car is headed, not beyond center which I'd day is rightfully an oversteer), which is fun on its own merit. But the steering corrections are far from what I'd call oversteer.

oh ok, I dont think koni yellows and DG springs would drastically change things that much from stock? I might try it one of these days.

Sounds from stock and maybe my setup will probably be a bit more neutral than my integra with ITR suspension parts which when pushed can exhibit throttle lift easily.

Going to drive the GTI this weekend for autox, its been about 6mo since driving it in an autox.

Hi, as you own a Tiguan I quote you

I would like to activate XDS on my Tiguan MY2012 177PS 4motion DSG.
I guess the coding of the ABS control module has changed (or is car-related), because for me it looks like it's not in channel 36 (error channel) with 3 settings but seems to be for my car in channel 67 with only 0 (deactivated, stock setting) or 1 (Enabled).

As the channel isn't self-explanatory (my ABS/Adaptation isn't documented at all in VCDS 12.12) i'd like to be sure that changing it to 1 activates XDS.

Any feedback on the channel 67 coding on the newer Tiguan ?

Thanks

PS:
here is a screenshot of my module

Or would it make the upgraded suspension better?
Anyone comment?

It's not going to undo the usefulness of turning up the XDS.

To build a bit on what schleima is asking, i just fooled around with my 2014 SportWagon tdi and got the N/A prompt under the adaptation menu for the XDS settings.... Rats i thought, it won't work, but went into the long coding for the 03-ABS and checked the bit for "XDS differential extended active something something". Following that i went back into the adaptation and the option to adjust the strength of the xds setting was there! I then set it to "2" and we will see how it works tomorrow....

If anyone needs to see the byte and bit i had to select i will post screenshots, but there are only 4 or 5 bits you can check anyway in the abs long coding....

Also, on the new car window sticker it even says that the car has an electronic locking differential but it certainly has never acted like it.
