    I keep my DIS set to the 'eco' screen and have noticed some strange behavior relating to the fuel consumption readout. This is on my 2015 4 6MT. When I start out in first gear, feathering the throttle (like enough to get moving without stalling), many times the screen shows the realtime fuel consumption rate as 5.0 mpg. I'm talking accelerator pedal position like ~1/8" depressed. It happens on flat ground, starting uphill, and even starting out going downhill. This is maybe 80% of the time. The other 20% of the time, it might read something like 11 mpg in this scenario, which is more what I would expect. To add to my bewilderment, there are other times when I will intentionally get on the gas and take off in first gear and it reads ~9 mpg or higher. In this scenario I am clearly using more fuel than when I am feathering the gas just to get into first gear and creep away.

    So, I am not concerned in general that this car is not a highly fuel efficient machine - however, I am concerned/baffled as to why it performs so inconsistently. And while I fully understand that the value reading out on the DIS is not absolutely accurate, I do believe that it is at least good for showing a trend, and my manual calculations of gas mileage resulting in ~16mpg based on 50/50 driving and not beating the crap out of it lead me to believe there is something at play here.

    Would anyone here with a B8.5 6MT be willing to humor me and set their DIS to the Eco screen and see what kind of mpg numbers it returns when starting out in 1st gear, and whether it is consistent at all?

    I have wondered this too. And has anyone noticed if they're going through brakes more after upgrading to dual pulley?

    The latter would be more of a function of the individual driver using the brakes more. I'd wager to say that plenty of us boost freak leadfoots do, yes.

I always thought the +- mode was its own thing unaffected by the D/S selection.


    Also, does anyone else get a really odd "slam" instead of a smooth DSG fart every once in a while? Seems like if I apply throttle fast and also upshift at just the right time it almost seems to confuse the car, giving me a rough jolt and a sort of half fart as it shifts. I never try and make it happen but it sort of just surprises me sometimes and I can't figure out exactly why it goes on. This is a 2014 model with 37k miles and it seems to only have happened on the 1-2 shift.

    Anyone here using and APR TCU tune(or another TCU tune) with EPL ECU? Curious about any short comings.
    Life has taught me never try to make something idiot proof, they'll simply come up with a better idiot.

    Many have done it. Th censuses is they work together. Obviously not the best pairing, but it'll do.

    Is this a known TSB or fix with the dealership?

    It's an aftermarket ECU upgrade for your DSG. All the major tuners offer them (at different price points) : APR, GIAC, UNITRONIC, EPL, 034.
    No OEM fix that I know of, other than a new Mechatronics unit (hope it's not that...)

    Is it unusual to place an order for wheels, then they have to be back ordered (said in stock when the order was placed), and that back order still not have an ETA two and a half months later? Asking for a friend.....

    Depending on if you order from the manufacturer or the vendor can effect wait times. Vendors donít have physical access to the inventory most times so inventory might not be exact so by the time orders flow in and are processed things get back ordered. Always best to call and see if they have received an eta for shipping or what the delay is. YMMV.

    What is a Wholesale Car Dealer? I was looking at a used car the other day. I asked the guy to show me Title. There was a random lady's name on the Title, and he said that he's a Wholesale Car Dealer.

    How do you turn ON/OFF the mirror compass?

    When I start the car, I see the compass/direction letter come up for a split second but it does not stay lit during the ride. I've looked into the car settings but do not see an option where it can be turned on/off, I do not have the BO system. Any ideas?

    Thanks, that worked!

    I guess when I tried this before I did not hold it long enough and thought it's from a different setting.
