Good point perhaps some that are using it with the dsg can offer there opinions ?  Always good to have direct user input

I would also like to hear from any DSG owners who are/ using or have used it to hear their thought on how it behaves with DSG, and if they removed the box, why?

This is a circular link, I was trying to broaden the discussion by involving users of other forums, appreciate that many people use several forums but not everyone does

hmmm a lack of replies from current owners with dsg & peddle box seems to confirm what Dtuk said then?

I might be reviving an old thread but the throttle response in the mk 7.5 pp 245 DSG seems to be a lot better than my old manual mk 7 pp 230 (manual) ,and don’t feel a pedal box is necessary, where as I was seriously considering one in the mk7.

OK, so this has certainly woken me up!
Currently have 2017 Mk7 GTI 220 with pedal box. A great mod to add.
Soon to collect 2019 GTI 245 DSG.
Do I transfer pedal box or not..... bearing in mind the 245 may respond differently to previous versions of GTI?
Anyone with direct and well informed experience of same?

I would definitely try the new car first. But as you already have the pedal box, you may feel differently to me.
