One thing that bugs me with DSG is i think it stays in 2nd gear unnescessarily sometimes... and when going slowly it bugs me that the clutch is rubbing away when im thinking... why don't you change into fooking 1st gear then :signLOL:

You don't have to replace clutches in a DSG gearbox though?

Mine is a bit of a creeper too :laugh:

I've noticed that it pulls a little more now than it did do as stock, so maybe as you modify the creep gets stronger too :smiley:

 :smiley:

I have found like previous autos ie. an old mk3 escort Ford CVT box that the car will creep either in reverse or drive dependant on revs ie if she's on choke the RPM will be higher. I have found that the DSG is jerky at low maneovering speeds but my dads 2009 TTS with the same box reacts the same. With regards to it rolling back, I thought they had one way clutches to stop it rolling but I presume that as the DSG box has two clutches, this may not be possible? My Edition 30 rolls backwards on an incline.

Anybody dabbled with GIAC's DSG software upgrade yet? I was told that this software makes it smoother as there is a torque limiter in first and reverse as standard and the car has to 'fight' it to move forwards or backwards accordingly. I've heard that this software removes the limiter and aids the already quick shift times. Any feedback on this subject would be welcome, thanks.

....A DSG remap will improve shifts/thresholds in Manual mode. It's not a cheap option though.

but you also lose its best feature if you map the box, which is the DSG burp.

The map would have to do some amazing things for me to lose that wonderful sound.  :happy2:

I recently had my DSG gearbox computer(mechatronics?) replaced and I think it creeps more than it did before. I am also sure the gear changes are not as fast as before but this might just be in my head. My car does roll back while in D on a hill but there does seem to be slight delay enough so you can easily go from brake to accelerator without rolling back.

My car is completely stock and I also get creep when I let off of the brake - I dont think Ive ever used the accelerator in reverse at all.

I would get your car looked at again. All auto's creep when you let off of the brake - and its not normal if its doesnt creep!

If i caught a women scraping my fake chrome insert like that, i would sit on her head.  :signLOL:

I am sure it was holding it, but i certainly didn't notice anything like what i had before. Saying that my map was off so the whole car felt weird, perhaps it was just the difference from before as mine really pulled hard previously.  :happy2:

I have driven several different automatics and they all creeped. I thought thats why the footbrake had to be pressed when selecting drive or reverse, so the car didn't move before you wanted it to.

Been out this morning. Put my map back on and the creep forward is back to about 60% of before the mech unit change.

I think MR Hurditch was correct.  :pomppomp:

pleased you got your dsg box fixed - you must have a nicer vw garage than me

though mine has actually weirdly seemed to have fixed itself of late - jurkiness is hardly noticeable - but in contact with a more mod friendly vw garage courtesy of Dom and VWR and have it booked in for April to be inspected.

i have not noticed loosing the dsg burp after remapping the box - its still very much there
