Golf mk7 / Re: DSG Gear Ratio 6spd GTI vs 7spd GTI-PP?

You're right, typically, when googling, I found a previous thread... but you're right, there is still no concrete proof.
Ideally a ratio chart or a video of speedo at 70mph in both cars would confirm.

Numerous threads on here regarding this.... I don't think the hard data on gear ratios for a VW DSG box ever surfaced though.

The part in the glovebox is actually the "brains". The bit in the dash is just a screen and input.

I guess its hard to know if the thing seemingly not displaying anything is a display fault or a computer fault. Probably cheaper to swap both in one go, might even come as one replacement part?

Golf mk7 / DSG Gear Ratio 6spd GTI vs 7spd GTI-PP?
« Last post by CocoPops on Today at 11:25 »
In the facelift PP, it has a 7spd DSG, so how does that compare to the standard 6speed?

Is the 7th ratio simply a longer top gear/overdrive? Or are all of the ratios adjusted compared to the 6speed?

That's nothing, try some Cup 2's

yes think these tires are as soft as slicks  :grin:, wonder how long these tires will last.. :smiley:

My Semi slick Federal is not this soft....  :smiley:

I got between 9 front and 15k rear miles out of mine, not bad considering they only come with 5.5mm of thread.

No other reason, other than I've not had the car that long.

Will probably switch it back on when the weather improves next spring, about the same time I plan to upgrade my wheels & tyres - hopefully Michelin will have the pilot sport 4s tyres in 18" by then.

I get the new car worry, I also wondered whether I was doing the right thing messing with settings withing the first month, but not any more  :tongue: I can only imagine having the diff on its increased traction setting would be a benefit. How often do we corner that hard in daily basis anyway? I changed coupled of other stuff that I need to try: XDS set to weak, and couple of brake mods and all together they should make for a much more natural behavior.

Another one that hopes PS4S will come out in 18" eh? I'm on the same boat but if nothing is out till next April it will be the perfect excuse for 19" aftermarket summer alloys...  :whistle:

In fact there is one 18" size already out (at least in US) but it's a stupid high 245/40/18 it looks almost like a 4x4 tyre.

Something I think we've all seen in the Mk7 at times.

First thing to try is a software update - some of the early versions of the code seemed to cause this problem - but don't ask which versions, I don't think anyone has ever catalogued version numbers and faults. Its largely irrelevant anyway, a current version will fix that but only dealers have access to the software.

If its not that, then its a faulty unit, again, reasonably common. They will replace it under warranty.

They changed mine but for some reason they changed both the screen and the part in the glove box.
