Overall it sounds like it's a very good boxVery smooth changes, runs really well but still getting to grips with how it performs.
There has been the odd occasion where its been a little hesitant. Albeit this is in Normal D mode not Sport.
Example, yesterday I was slowing at the approach for a junction to turn left, and looked to the right see if I was clear as I approached, nothing coming clear road, so i didn't fully come to a stop and just went for the left turn.
As I'd slowed the box obviously started to make its down changes, but then i got back on the gas it had a little pause where it was trying to decide what the hell i wanted it to do.
We are only talking a split second, but when you've put the action into motion your thinking crikey could of drove a bus through that pause.
I've had a few occasions already when I've thought I wouldn't of changed with a manual there, but so far just getting used to it. Playing with sport mode etc which is bit more manual like, allowing me to be more selective.Overall it sounds like it's a very good box
Never owned a car with DSG always manual, but I'm thinking of getting it on my next car.
It wasn't the person you'd run over tapping on the window to get you to stop was it???
New tyres do pick up stones in the tread far too easily though.
Cheers Rich, its not as ballistic as the Cupra, bit of a horsepower disadvantage as you'd expect.
It's good to see they have made progress.Cheers Rich, its not as ballistic as the Cupra, bit of a horsepower disadvantage as you'd expect.
But to be honest I am enjoying driving this a lot more. No doubt it helps with being a DSG having been struggling with my feet for so long.
But its far more chuckable than the Mk2 was, its a great chassis it feels much nimbler like a small hot hatchback should, definitely a lot lighter which isn't going to hurt its power delivery. Despite it being around 180hp it gets off alright and doesn't hang about.
Mk3 LCR is what I'm aiming for this time, run this for a few years, and put the extra money its saving me into something lairy. Hopefully they won't leave the DSG out on the R. The fact its coming to the Cupra makes me hopeful.It's good to see they have made progress.
I always felt the mk2 handled better than my mk1. To hear they have worked their magic again is good.
Hmmm. Mk3 LCR maybe.
