    You might have noticed over the years Ive had a few screens and glass replaced for retrofitting purposes and none affect ncb

    Did you put a new genuine glass? I am asking because last summer I replaced my windshield with a heat reflective one from a donor car, in very good condition and since then I have a lot of moisture in my car. Hence a lot of condensation and even thin ice on the inside of the windshield. I wish I didn't change it at all...

    • Been updating a set of 2.8t maps so the modified off sports is better than i thought it already was even though before it was a massive improvement over anything before.

      Did mine a few weeks back and it got rid of a little spiking of the revs at low speeds and manoeuvring which i had noticed for a while but i bet the others with this mapping hadn't as it was so good compared to what they might have had previously.

      Its not complicated really its just graphs.
      You can see the peak which is a higher number than what should be the highest point further back in the map so its just a matter of making the higher figures the same as what they should be then smoothing down all the edges on the ramp going down. Result is a silk smooth power transition as the pedal is applied, not that is was bad before its just been perfected.The option in WinOLS allows you to see the new alter map only rather than overlaying the original map which can hide the profile of the new map and you can see the blue which is a negative figure this is how off sports produces lower peak power.

    • Stripped and cleaned the contacts on the left steering wheel scroller as the button was not working all the time. This unit was a really clean unused one i had sourced for old silver cdti then fitted it to this one but always had the button issue. Shame its taken me over 2 years to sort it bad slacker!
    • Replaced 2 LED lamps in the roof console, nice and white and do not flash with failing SMD's now.
    • Loaded a file to the Dension as usb music was playing to loud and was distorted, lowered it by -15dB https://techsupport.dension.com/en-u...-volume-issues

    Very interesting, when do you think you will reach perfection?

    I'll be keeping an eye on this and may have to dip into an upgraded map?
