Unless I was in really good with the dealer I wouldn't say anything.

what would you like them to do, turn down the torque on the car?
Maybe install a stock LSD...its hard to talk to a dealer about that sort of stuff, because under "normal" driving conditions, wheel hop shouldn't be occuring. Just an observation ya know?

Re: Has anyone approached a dealership about the wheel hop? (Dubbin1.8)

i've had hop just by taking off in wet conditions, not just when i'm beating on my car.
i guess i expect them to have a solution...lol. different engine mounts, etc. hell, for all we know, they have a fix, but nobody is complaining (i doubt it, though)
just a thought

sorry but dealers can't do anything about it. Try talking to VWOA if you want something done. Under wet conditions you should be lighter on the throttle. Really it's a matter of throttle control. The dealer will not "fix" it as it's not a problem. It would be like a Mustang owner complaining cause he doesn't have positraction and when he spins his tires he pulls to one side.

i just thought maybe since people were putting in different mounts and saying it fixed the problem, that it was possibly something that.......ferget it
