Have you done any of the mods we've discussed in other threads? There are two minor mods that we've proven do help with the starting lag you've spoken of- K&N air filter and the turbo intercooler resonator delete pipe.Highway driving to Montreal I averaged about 6.0l/100km the entire trip on the highway, with a lot of hills in the mountains until I hit Ottawa. I was around 5.5-5.9 but that was being unrealistic with doing 80-100km/hr. Usually cruise at 90 on the mountains and 110 on highway in city and we still managed 6l to 6.5l/100km which is basically what you said in mpg.. so I don't doubt yours is right.
The transmission is.. a first for me. I mean, when I throw her into reverse, it seems like it takes a couple seconds for it to grab and want to reverse. I've put it into reverse and started giving some throttle and I sat there and then it started to go after a pop. Same as going reverse to drive, it takes a second or two. Maybe that's normal in DCT? Not sure. It's my first.
I've noticed from complete stops, in eco, it is really sluggish. Like.. unbearably sluggish and feels like it's being forced to do something it does not want to. Sport is peppier, but it still has a weird "off the launch" if you're light on the peddle. I can't really describe it. Is this just a DCT being a DCT?
