Every stopsign, stoplight, etc... its WOT until the speed limit. then just slow cruisin' along...

I do the same thing. People must love being behind me at the stop light because I pull off so quick to reach speed.

First question: Is it just my personal car or all the customer cars I drive count?


I'd say at least 10-15 times a day depending on traffic.

I would hope you respect other people cars? Comments like that is the reason I hate to leave my car with anyone.

Well when I had my first car ('94 Buick Century 3100), it was about 14-20 times a day. Boy that car took a beating. (3100 with the 3.33 4T60-E attached to it).

I can understand why that was misunderstood. I work in a BMW repair/ performance shop and we install lots of performance parts and Reprogramed PCMs. Its part of my job, I have my bosses and the customers permission.

Maybe once or twice a week. I don't really need to go WOT in daily driving, it gets up to speed at a good pace and I like to get good gas mileage.

In the GTI I go to the floor much more than I did in the Bonne. When cruising in the Bonnie I would try to keep downshifting to a minimum, for a 4 speed with tons of torque, it sure shifted early in the pedal range, with a perfect TPS range no less...

But in the GTI, In manual mode i'll just keep it in the higher/cruising gear I'm in, and give it more accelerator instead of downshifting. @ my cruising speed on I-35 on the way to work, i'm just in the boost a little. But there are plenty of moments I need to merge, and downshifting + flooring it helps..

It'* also hard to get out of the gas when accelerating because of the turbo'* noise, and power delivery, it'* just relentless acceleration everywhere above about ~1800RPM.
