I've been meaning to do the starting vibration to the Alltrack, between the two I've heard it really changes the car.

I changed to the throttle "Direct: Controlled over Threshold Value" and not sure I feel much (any?) difference. I do have the 6MT if that makes a difference?

Is this something you feel only when stomping on it in the lower gears, or noticeable in normal conservative driving?

Didn't notice any change in taking off gently from a stop either.

Those that think this is such a great improvement can you more clearly explain what change you notice?

Maybe I have to try both settings back to back to detect the change?

I also have a 6MT and it worked for me

I notice it under all conditions

There is no "dead spot" in the throttle - it is just a linear response now (also feels livelier, but that could be just because the "dead spot" is removed)

I have only the throttle response mod done, and it seems very clear and obvious to me. Maybe if the original throttle response didn't bother you, it's not noticeable to you?

Thanks for the input,

I'll change it back and try again for comparison.
It does drive predictably with the change, but the way it was before might not have bothered me.

My wife didn't notice it. I can definitely feel it and I know it is there. I could also understand how it would be hard to detect for some.

It's like when I upgraded my stereo and the bass is cleaner and punchier. Some people couldn't tell the difference but I could and I notice it everytime.

For people that dont push the accelorator to 40-75% alot might not notice the dead spot. If you stay below 40% pedal or roll into it very slowly ud never notice it. I roll into the throttle fast and i notice the dead spot daily. Cant wait to get VCDS to make this change to see if it helps.

I notice that before the coding the DSG seemed very laggy to down shift (multiple reporters claimed turbo lag), kept pressing kept pressing (30-50%) then finally a down shift. Now it feels like I don't need to go much beyond 20% to get the same response and you only need to be at 20% for a fraction of the time to get the same response. My Mk5 felt like my Mk7 is now.

Kinda make sense as previously it was "gradual over time", it incorporated delay or lag into throttle response.

Kinda like a Pedal Commander does. Takes the math out and gives the driver control. Ya i keep comparing my MK7 to my old MK5. My BRM usta **** and git. The only gittin the CRUA does is gittin groceries. Will be ordering VCDS ASAP to make this mod. Plus i got the 40k DSG service coming up.

There's also a popular VCDS tweak on GTIs and Rs for reducing something called "starting vibration reduction", but I doubt that applies to a low-power car like a TDI (dodges tomatoes ): Enter ABS controller, select adaptions, select "starting vibration reduction" from the drop-down menu, change the value from Strong to Deactivated. Thread here: http://www.golfmk7.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21888
On the TDI there are only:
Normal, Strong, and Maximum choices

I did change the throttle response and noticed a bit better response around town.

Hmm, I just did this yesterday and my choices were Strong, Normal, Deactivated. I have a manual, don't know if that makes a difference or not.

Very strange, manual as well. 2014 manufacture date without the "fix"

I'm fully deactivated via VCDS. I'm DSG.

Note, I also follow the GolfMk7 forum, as I own a GTI as well (it's manual), and it's the same experience there. Some people don't have the "Deactivate" option available. I don't know why. It's not a VCDS software or cable version issue, as some folks with OBDeleven have the same issue.
