Malone Tune? What level? Did the tuner drive it after he was done?

The warranty on these cars is so pitifully short - just defer the upgrades a little bit out of procrastination and BOOM you'll be out of warranty anyway, so go for it!

Yes to the DSG tune.

Well it shifts hard if you push it hard but otherwise it's much smoother normal driving. It seems to shift at correct points versus closer to 5000rpm previously. It's been a blast on the highway this week Also after a few days of driving the car seems to have a bit more torque than the first day does this make any sense? Does the ECU really learn and adjust as you drive?

Added DSG bonus in Manual mode it will not upshift/downshift automatically. Forgot to shift and redlined first time.

Yeah, yeah, watched it on my phone, went straight to the video, didn't really see the title. Figured it should be in the thread.
