On my 16v jtd the accelerator pedal has about 1-2cm of dead spot when you first press it and it does nothing. Most other cars i have had as soon as you touch the pedal its there. Is that normal?

It may need resetting,search for ecu reset and you'll find it,or it may be that the variable resistor(like an old fashioned volume control on a tv or radio)is worn.The best way to find out is to get the codes read and check the readings from the accelerator pedal,there should be two readings,iirc.MES (used to FES) and a suitable cable (vag com) is what I used to check mine!
If you are real lucky an ecu reset may cure it,but if not ,read the codes!
Good luck:)
