Post fixed TCM and driving in sport mode
Got my 2014 TDI R line I’ve always wanted. I was lucky enough to find one with 19,000 km. I had to do quite a bit researching before getting the Touareg and is the 2nd TDI, first automatic tranny I’ve had.
I’ve never driven a pre-fix treg, but when I step on it (while in D mode) there’s so much delay! I tried the S mode, and is def a lot better. I’m strongly thinking of getting yrktrg TCM fix. I’m just hesitant, as I’d hate to swap out my parts, because it’s so low mileage. Queation, is there a substantial difference from the pre-fix D mode vs the post-fix in sport mode? Would getting cayenne coding be pretty close to the pre-fix treg TCM? And, wouldn’t a post fixed cayenne coding be similar as the post fix tcm?
I don’t know if I can really enjoy driving the car like this. My manual MK6 TDI Golf didn’t change much at all, after getting the emission recall work completed. I love my treg, but it really feels like I’m driving a cvt transmission, and massive turbo lag. Is it bad idea to just keep driving the car in “S” mode, in terms of fuel consumption and longevity?
