sri with elite map - ideal

Post by danx55 » Thu Aug 22, 2019 10:12 am

hi guys,

yes i too find the sport button fun .... but think that for me a more balanced elite style map would be better
....ie it runs quicker in standard mode ..without the button

...shame it isnt a dealer tweak option :D

cheers

Hi dan
I would of thought standard 1.4t Sri and elite maps are the same , just on the Sri an extra little boost from the switch. Might have to have a go in an 1.6t elite so see if same as my Sri.Very happy with standard Sri mode this end , sport switch almost too nippy lol

The maps on all 1.4T trim levels are the same.

hi Scott
..sorry might be my terminology :/ :D ... for map replace with setting/config (linked to the sport button) :D

...called it a map based on my previous car (tdi) mapping experience

cheers

My 1.6T Elite Nav doesn’t have a sport button. Might need to get a pedal box to see what I’m missing lol

I have a 1.6t sri with the sport button. If it's off the car feels flat to me. The boost seams to come on quicker rather than have to press harder on the accelerator and wait for things to build up. I was having a play with a golf GTI and I was struggling until hit hit the sport button. Once that was on the car is much more responsive and I was right up with him. The only time I leave it off is in wet conditions as the boost causes traction issues. Best off and let the power feed in.

The sport button just increases throttle sensitivity. It does not change the map or performance of the car. The same effect can be had by simply putting your foot down further...... lol

I think the sport button (button of truth) also brings the turbo up sooner it feels to me.
