Ok so I've kinda had it with the throttle lag on my DSG. Is anyone running one of those plug in boxes to stop it and can offer some advice on which is best?

Hey guys!

I'm selling my RCD510 thought I'd offer it up here first. No mucking around $200 located in Sydney will post at buyers expense. It's has the rear camera out port not the USB port. Haven't got photos of the rear as its still in the car. Selling as I'm going to upgrade to an android or pioneer unit.

i have the pioneer carplay unit and in all honesty id say that it isnt worth the money. much harder to use than just plugging in your phone via usb/bluetooth and does not really offer any advantages.

will do will probably go with dna seems to be a fit and forget type of thing

My other car had a Revo tune and took ages to get the settings just right but then again that was a stage 2+ not a stage 1

Thinking about hooking up my vag com cable and changing a few settings - first will be the indicator having it blink for 3 times auto is pretty handy rather then having to hold the stick down

If u have any other tweaks feel free to let me know
I think you can make the gauges do a needle sweep on start up on some models.

Do you live in Bondi mate?
