I think you can change the throttle response which would put down more torque earlier in the pedal application, but won't increase torque overall.

I tired out the throttle response change today, can't say I notice much of a difference. Only drove for a bit, will see if I can notice with more driving.

The dynamic steering change I do highly recommend, makes the steering a bit heavier and more predictable at low speeds.

Can you please explain how you were able to make changes to torque mapping and steering feel? Thanks!

I used the Carista android app with an old ODB2 bluetooth reader I've had for years, $10 for a week pass to use the coding in the app. You can also use ODB11 or VCDS which are more capable coding tools but cost more and require custom hardware.

I also made some other changes with it: windows down/up with remote key hold, settings menu access while driving, HVAC shows fan speed in auto mode, 4 blinks convenience turn signal blinks instead of 3 (can set 5 as well), auto window up/down doesn't stop with door open. It has settings for mirror dip on reverse but I couldn't get that working right.

It's pretty straight forward to do, well worth the $10 IMHO, even though I'll probably end up dropping the $200 for VCDS eventually cause I'm a nerd.

Ok after some research the throttle position/torque mapping thing doesn't do what it seems, it's about steering mode changes so inapplicable to our eGolfs: https://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread. ... even-tweak

If anyone is interested in buying H&R springs and/or Konig Runlite wheels/tires, I’m selling mine. Located in Baltimore.

Why are you selling? You just got them installed a few months ago right?

Kinda funny, because I'm selling my entire car!

Sold my car to a dealer last week, so I put all the stock parts back on. I had too many cars for my current needs.

If you just want to change the look of the Astana wheels without changing performance/range, using vinyl wrap is an easy DIY. Here's mine as an example:

Did you make the vinyl, or purchase a kit to apply?
