Huh? I drove my friend's 2011 GTI for two days. The DSG Tranny was absolutely perfect and the lag is hardly, hardly noticeable. The car's weight is pefectfly fine given its size. I think you must have gotten a lemon?Report it
turbo lag with a ko3 turbo? I guess someone that has never driven a turbo may think that, but really there is no lag.Report it
Glad I'm not alone. I keep seeing these comments saying "great low end torque" and wonder what are these guys thinking. Honestly I can't tell if it has turbo lag or not, because I can never feel any appreciable rush of power from idle to redline. Maybe my mazdaspeed 3 spoiled me with the power it had. Don't get me wrong, the gti is very classy and grown up compared to the ms3 and handles like a dream but when it comes to power this thing is much slower than it's 63 hp deficit on paper suggests.Report it
