Default Kerma now has DSG tune for MQB Golfs and Wagons

Would love to get the DSG tune until the emmissions warranty runs out then get the ECU tune and off road package. I think with a DSG tune a guy could really enjoy the car without changing emissions on goings in the ECU.

If the car didn’t have paddle shifters, I’d agree. As it is it seems unnecessary to me.

Does a DSG only tune even protect your warranty? It can't trigger a TD1?

Charlie at Kerma says it cant be detected on flash count.

DSG controller is different than the ECU, the ECU isn't touched for a DSG flash.

With that said I'd wager if VW wanted to they could determine a non stock DSG flash is installed and deny DSG related warranty work.

what do the paddle shifters have to do with it?

i have Kerma stage 2, which is great. but of course i'm tempted by the DSG tune (and some new rubber!)

I would prefer driving in manual mode with the paddle shifters to any DSG mode, regular, sport, or super duper tuned. The only times I take my TDI’s out of manual mode is going 75 for long stretches on the interstate, or at tollbooths or in other bumper to bumper situations when manual mode is pointless. A DSG tune would also be pointless in those conditions.

As to your opening question, I’m surprised you asked it. Paddle shifters change gears, no? The DSG also changes the gears, yes? The driver picks one mode or the other mode in order to move the car anywhere, correct? Do you really not understand why I said if the vehicle didn’t have paddle shifters, I would be more interested in a DSG tune?

I just changed my steering wheel from standard to one with paddle shifters. I did not do it because I like to shift myself, I think the tranny does a better job than I can. But there are situations when I want to override the DSG. I have the Malone DSG tune and now I can see what gear the DSG chooses. It will shift down to a lower gear on some not so steep grades where I know it can really stay in the higher gear and I want to be able to do that. Yes I can do it with the console shifter, but I've had it happen twice when I forgot that I was in "D" and moved the shifter to neutral, scared the hell out of me. Also the large city I live in with much stop and go traffic I prefer to do my own shifting to let me use engine braking. I also drive on some fairly steep mountains twice yearly and there I want to be able to shift up or down quickly myself at my choosing.
