Well I like it. :laugh: Without a doubt driving is more pleasurable now. I turned it off for about 20mins the other day just to compare and Zzzz!  Unless it goes into meltdown or something, it 'aint ever coming off.  :wink:

Rebecca is it just the pedal box you've got on yours and not the tuning box too? How does it get along with the dsg?

Just the pedal box.  Not interested in the tuning box.  So far, so good with DSG. Only had it on couple of weeks but no issues at all.  Sport feels smoother if anything.  And in Drive, it's really now as the car should be from the off IMO.  You can get a money back guarantee with them, so definitely worth a try.  :smiley:

Ive had a pedal box on for around 6 months on my pp DSG, its been faultless and I wouldn't be without it. They only time I've turned it off was driving through 4 - 5 of snow, so it wasn't aggressive.

I found Eco mode, LSD and winter tyres was a fantastic combination in the snow :laugh:

I wouldnt rely on the 14 day money back guarentee with dtuk. I returned my tuning box within 10 days and they kept a restocking fee! ! Not good business practice really considering the site quotes a 14 day money back guarentee.

Had mine for 4 months now the throttle response is like night and day. I have been experimenting and found Sport to be ideal  to go with my Revo stage 2. A Honda Civic Type R didn't know what hit it the other day :evil:

Has the pedalbox affected anyone's insurance or have their insurers been accommodating?
