vag com?

Hey all, 10-year Honda veteran just making the switch to VW. Bought a 2010 Sportwagen 6spd TDI and loving it so far.
She's only a tad sluggish right off the bat on each gear and then pulls like a beast at 2k rpm. I'd like it to be consistent tho. Any suggestions?
Perhaps I'm interested in ECU flash/vag com adjustments etc but not sure where to go or how to do. Can anyone in the uptown/metairie/westbank area help?


Hot off the lot!

that low of rpms dont have any power in any car. adapt your driving stile to put your shift points at about 1800 rpm. A tune wont really help that issue; you have to have a certain amount of airflow to get the turbo spooled and that is where your torque comes from. An intake and exhaust (of lack there of) will help a very little bit.

congrats on the new car. its not a honda.....follow the maintenance schedule like its religion. Use the correct oil.

Newbie

Hey guys what's up! I just purchased a 2012 passat se and I'm new to this car thing haha. My previous vehicle was a lifted jeep Cherokee. I'm in the Lafayette area about 2 1/2 hours away from New Orleans. I'm looking to do some minor changes to my car maybe a small drop change the wheels things like that. Just wanted to introduce myself and meet new people.
