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?
Try it without for a few weeks, then if it annoys you there’s the option of transferring the box over.
Having driven a few recently registered vehicles from various marques myself I suspect the response will still be rubbish even if it’s not quite as rubbish.
Everyone has different wants and needs, personally I like a sporty hatch to feel sporty.

It seems that the R needs or benefits more from the PB. I know mine is awful without it, and I mean enough to put one off keeping the car. Thank you all, Booth etc for the recommendation way back.
It's true our Mk7 GTI doesn't need it?

I've been using one on my non-pp 7.5 GTI DSG and its made the world of difference. I can't drive without it. Throttle response feels like I'm in sport mode when I'm still in normal. Haven't experienced any issues with the DSG.

Has anyone had any further advice, or can offer some concrete evidence that this works on the 7.5 GTI dsg please?

Thinking of trying one, but I don't want to waste money and time if they are not really suitable for my spec car.

Anyone tried one on the 7.5 GTI dsg?

Thanks

Ref my post above, I note that Cocopops is running one on a dsg and seems to be happy with it.

Anyone else with a dsg tried it and has any positive/ negative feedback?

I bought my 7.5P DSG in December last and ran the car as standard for 2 weeks, then decided to get a pedalbox.  The difference is amazing and i certainly wouldn't like to go back to the standard format.  Fantastic piece of kit.
