First of congrats on the new car and best if luck with it!!Good afternoon all,
So last February i leased a 2019 Rabbit gti urano grey with the dsg. I'm new to the forum so please forgive me for asking any questions that may have been answered already. My prior car was a 2016 audi s3 and i had the Eurodyne ecu and tcu tune, only other upgrade was a set of pilot super sports. I did end up getting td1 flagged,but that was more of a learning experience as well as an eye opener in terms of avoiding using manufacturers for their service departments. In terms of impressions of the car after having it for a year completely stock. Handling is extremely good for a fwd car on crappy all season tires.(Upgrading to the general g max rs shortly) The motor even in stock form shines especially in third gear. Materials are good though they could be better. The 7speed dsg seems way ****tier than the six speed unit that was in my audi. When i floor it in auto, there is a lot of hesitation and lag. Hoping tcu tune sorts this out. Also the fact you can't defeat stability control, as well as the auto start stop feature are very annoying. I already know i'm going to go stage 2. My main question is, do springs help handling? I would like to lower the car, but if it negatively affects ride quality, and handling i wouldn't. Anyway looking forward to being a board member. Happy 2020
I have a manual so i can not say much about the dsg.
As far as springs go it will all depend what you are after. If you are going to do springs then i highly recommend also upgrading your shocks and struts to match. Even though all these companies boast that you can use your oem units, you will kill them sooner than later and have to replace them anyway. Might as well do it right the first time around!
