Admitted, both ball joints likely won't appreciate hot rotors.
Not sure but depending on severeness and duration of heat.




'Hydraulic brake assist' is what I pointed out. However, I doubt
you have deactivated since there's no option to deactivate for
this. ;)
There are three options: an even more annoying early intrusive
interventions, factory interventions (medium), later less intrusive
interventions. Guess you'd know this, but probably not the OP:

Early and later mean depending on how quickly you step onto
your brake pedal. You want to act quickly eg from gas onto brake
without any disturbing interventions or at least the very least ones.
Unfortunately hydraulic/emergency brake assist detects (or does
misapprehend) your quickness being an emergency case to help
an average driver. FULL braking incl. ABS is the result. It puts you
in being an passenger, you're no longer the boss.

I played with the brake booster from the stock 4 down to 1, I felt like nothing changed.

4 feels more sensitive and initial bite happens earlier, 1 gives a more linear feeling but sinks more.

There is a minimal difference, you need to pay attention to feel it

Looks good. (I still don't actually believe to VCDS on their words 'Not activated')
Thanks to you and TiGeo anyway.


Are these DSG's wet clutch?
6 speeds are/were, 7 speed is dry.

Wait. This is the 'mid sized' DQ381. It's wet clutches like its predecessor DQ250
and unlike the smaller DQ200 (lower torque up to 250 Nm > 1.0-1.4 TSI/1.5 TSI).
Only DQ200 use dry clutches, it's the very only VAG DSG tranny using dry clutches.

Most folks say lowering that number firms up the pedal when they move to larger/BBKs. Very popular with the folks swapping to Macans. I run an APR BBK, felt no difference and I'd say I'm a sensitive driver to these things.

DQ381 is wet, even though it's 7 speed.

AFAIK all DSGs here in North America are wet clutch. Dry clutch DSGs are more popular in Europe.
Ok I was mistaken. The service interval on the 7 spd is different I know that...2x the 40K on the 6 sod 250.

At least now we know its wet clutch, I much prefer wet clutch, well either way I have a dsg. Does all the oil come out of the two plugs?
