    OK maybe not the right thread title, but has anyone else noticed that there seems to be a little bit extra travel on the accelerator if you press a little harder?

    So you put your foot to the floor and it feels like it is depressed fully, but if you apply a bit more pressure there is a little bit of extra travel. Is this by design and is it some sort of "go mental" position??

    Are you sure you're not just bending the throttle stop back.

    isnt it just kickdown activating - I am sure my A3 has that ability and you get an obscene jerk as it drops gears and goes full throttle?

    not convinced its just for kickdown since it kicks down anyway if you depress far enough. Its definatley by design though and not something I am "bending back" - i'm not pessing that hard ;-)
