    Hi All,

    Heard about the improvements that revised software versions can have on the DCT box on my car, anyone in and around GU25 to help me with updating this??

    Obviously happy to compensate works required etc..

    Thanks!

    Does the GTS software really make a big difference to warrant an upgrade?

    if im happy and have had no issues with my DCT so far, will you still rate it enough to upgrade the software?

    Depends a lot on how old your current firmware is. Gains are smaller on cars updated since 2014 but substantially better on older firmware levels

    If it’s on original firmware, Definitely.

    mines 2012 and it's a massive improvement especially higher up the rpm's really noticeable quicker shifts.

    That should react very well to Gts firmware if it’s never been updated.
