    18"s VS 19"S

    I went from 19" to 18" and am kinda regretting it. The sporty responsiveness that I loved so much has been subdued such that there is now a little play when I turn the wheel. I went to 18" on both sets of wheels, but now I'm wishing that I would've kept my summer setup as 19". Though if I ever took road trips I would probably put the 18"s on temporarily because of the harsh ride.

    Comfortable 19” tyre

    Agree 100%. I had 19's and downsized to 18s. OEM Contisport 5Ps we on the 19s and I now have both Conti DWS06 and Michelin PS4S on sets of 18" wheels for fall/winter/spring and summer, respectively. I miss the 19's for summer as they were laser precise on turn-in and gave insane levels of lateral security when darting through traffic. What I don't miss is their harshness over bumps, potholes, and frostheaves, and while I hate to admit it, moving to an all 18" setup was the right call for where I live. The 18s produce a perceptively softer, more comfortable ride on both my summer and all-season tires and I can tell there is much more sidewall flex on turn-in, even in the PS4S tires. Good for imperfect roads. Not good for driving confidence. I've gotten over it though on the PS4S since they have tremendous levels of grip.

    Acceleration dead spot

    Where is this dead spot you speak of? Immediately after mashing the accelerator? When you're on boost? Could be any number of things, but yes a tune or a JB4 + pedal box will most likely solve your issues.

    APR Stage 1 + DSG issues

    This does not sound normal to me. You should check with your APR installer and see if they have any updates or fixes to this issue.

    Another RS3 stolen last night.

    Do you guys even have used car dealerships? Or do people just get all their cars by stealing them?

    Help me decide between DSG and Manual

    How will YOU drive the car? Would love to hear your predicted traffic situations, % of time on B roads/tracks/highways, etc. In my opinion, DSG all the way. They are not jerky at low speed, just a little less smooth than an auto box.
  11. When they refuse to clean off all the salt and sand they dump on the roads. Our city seems to be proactive in dumping the crap on the roads, so even if it doesn't end up snowing there is a nice thick layer of sand to drive on. With sticky tires it really sucks listening to all that crap being thrown around the wheel wells the entire way to work. It's supposed to give you more road grip but when there is a constant layer of it when the roads are dry, it's like driving on a dirt road rally style. Very annoying and unsafe.
