I don't think carista will do anything, people are talking about the throttle response with that and not that mushy pedal dead spot you're talking about.Nice to know I am not alone with this dead spot , i was beginning to wonder if it was a fault , so the question , will you or have you purchased a DTUK pedal box ? , personally i might try teh Carista thing first , for teh sake fo £ 20 then if thats no real difference , plump for the pedal box , although 10% difference doesn't sound a lot ? decisions decisions / money and money
The DTUK pedal box is £200 but I think you can return them.
Btw this issue isn't just Leons, the majority of the posts I found about it was actually Golf R's.
I'm probably not going to bother with anything, but it does annoy me. I just end up putting it in Sport manual mode with normal engine setting, so I have a responsive throttle with no daft sound pumping into the car.
I came from a MK2 FR with DSG and that didn't have all these new fancy settings but the gearbox just had drive or sport, the throttle on that was way better and didn't have this feeling.
