As far as Iím aware I thought the extended warranty said it did not cover anything transmission related. So it should in theory not matter. But I guess if they can find anything to deny warranty claims they will.

Do you have the Phase 2 emissions software? That seemed to improve the DSG a little.

Yes I have phase 2 done on my gsw. And yeah Iíve noticed sport does, but on the flip side then sport also holds rpm at times awkwardly long then I almost feel like it should have shifted. Maybe an in between between drive and sport is really what Iím looking for?lol

That was exactly my feeling, too. And that's what Malone's DSG tune delivered for me, only better. Like, it seems to take into account a lot more/better than stock tune how much throttle your applying, so if you're accelerating hard, it'll rev a bit higher before shifting, but if you're light on the pedal, it shifts earlier.

Like I said, it matches pretty much spot-on where/when I'd be shifting in pretty much every situation.

Finally got the DSG tune done from Malone. Car is immensely more driveable. Ive only had the tune for half a day but over that 100 miles the car is completely different. No longer do I have to worry about pulling out in traffic. The takeoff delay is GONE. Accelerating threw traffic used to be lug lug lug as you press the accelerator further down and nothing happens till all the sudden it down shifts two gears and smokes the tires GONE. The car now down shifts 1 gear as it should and accelerates instantly. The DSG behaves more like a standard slush box as far as being in the correct gear with no more notchy shifts at that take the rpms from 1500 down to 1100 rpm. The car seems to stay in the 1500 rpm range during normal crusing and 1700ish to 2700ish range while accelerating. Obviously if the acceleration is more aggressive so will be the rpms. The car no longer pisses me off when i drive it. I used to go from D to S to M all the time to get this car to behave in the same manner that Malone has done with this tune. I just put it in D and forget it. The DSG now knows what its doing. I couldnt be happier. Thank you Malone Tuning and TuneMyEuro.

Yep - totally in line with my experience as well.

Curious: Does your gear indicator show the gear you're in (like D1, D2, D3 - similar to the M1, M2, etc.- as it goes through the gears), or does it still only show "D" and "S" when you're not in the manual shifting mode?

Kerma Stage 2 here. I'm hearing that the Malone DSG tune is a happy medium between regular mode and sport mode. How does the DSG tune feel in combination with sport mode?

I wouldn't characterize the Malone DSG tune so much as a "happy medium", but more "fixes the shift points" - it shifts when I would shift. And in Sport mode, it shifts when I'd shift when I want to drive at higher revs.

Id agree with this. It keeps the car in a better more workable rev range. In sport mode I think its even better because now itll rev higher than D but will actually shift before red line. The biggest improvement is the slow take off is completely fixed. There is still a pot hole during the 2nd to 3rd gear shift and is more noticeable in sport.
