A bit more information about your car please.
Is it a Beetle? What year? What transmission? etc. would be helpful. ;)

Assuming you have an 01M trans..


I'm not sure if you need the registered version.. but from what I understand it will not stay in sport mode permanently.. it will always go back to whatever. Soft-coding isn't permanent.

000?x: DSP Mode (Dynamic Shift Points)
0 = DSP active
1 = DSP inactive

000x?: Transmission Mode
0 = Factory Mode (Adaptive Transmission Mode)
1 = Force Economy Mode (lower Shift Points)
2 = Force Sport Mode (higher Shift Points)

When I still had the '02 with the 01M, I did the tranny reset to factory default. Key on (don't start engine) accel pedal to floor for 5-10 seconds, then release. Key off. When you drive after that, easy on the acceleration, and the computer relearns shift points based on how you drive. So if you drive easy during the relearn period, it'll shift at lower RPMs. No need for the Vagcom for that. It did shift better for my wife after that.

That's I think pretty much the lowest it's gonna shift.. Sport mode it shifts around 3500-4000k or later..

And I thought it was shifting in sport mode now.If it had been shifting at 4000 I would have thought it had a problem. Thanks for the info

Well, I'm a bit puzzled. My '02 never shifted that high unless I forced it to by accelerating harder than usual. Of course it shifts at a higher RPM in freeway traffic, on-ramps, etc. In normal driving around town, it rarely revved above 2000-2200 RPM before shifting. Also wasn't aware that the 01M in the 2.0 Bug even had a "sport mode."
