See my thread Yippee maybe.
Perhaps it's just me as I said 'cos on going out this morning it def does feel more quick. This is the first DT I've had, so am more used to getting a quick response when you press the go fast lever. However, if you're in the right gear the response is immediate and "quite kwik". I had a Golf td try to lose me. At junctions you get the concertina effect, but he gave up after a few of them to see me in his mirror not long after he left a stop. As Perksy said, it does pull like a train, but only I think if you're in the right gear as the revs clime dead quick and you have to change to match.
Of course the only way to check if you've got more umph from the remap is to stick it on a rolling road. Perhaps we could get a meet at a place to check what the cars are actually delivering after the remaps, whoever did it. If there were a few of us we might get a discount. Would love to organise one , but there ar a couple of things.
1/ I couldn't organise a p*** up in a brewery.
2/ I don't know any rolling roads.
3/ Oh yes, I couldn't organise a p** up in a brewery.
As a ps, Absolutely **** myself this morning. Pulled out of Tescos onto the duel carraigeway. Changed gear and then put my foot over the clutch. Wasn't there! Peda! clutch! pedal! where? At the bottom of it's travel. God I felt naked without the clutch. Hazards on and pulled in. Pumped. cursed. I didn't have my mobile with me so no AA. Remembered something about a thread on here. Reached down, pulled up the pedal and OMG I can change gear and MOVE. Thank you AO.
