I don't recall seeing this posted, but Phase 2A seems to have eliminated the slight flat spot during light acceleration from a stop. Generally smoother throttle response overall. This is a 6-speed and I only have Phase 1 as a reference point (i.e., its a stop-sale car).

Default Vibration at high speed

I just bought a GSW, manual trans, 20k miles. I formerly had a 2014 JSW. I'm mostly happy with the performance of the car but I am noticing a bit of engine vibration at high speed and also when driving up hills. At idle and driving at low speeds the overall driving experience is smoother than the JSW. I seem to recall reading that one of the effects of the modification might be a bit more engine vibration. Has anyone noticed or heard anything similar? Could it just be the difference between the Gen 1 Gen 3 TDI engines?
