TVS Drivability software optimises the performance of the DQ500 7-speed DSG (S-Tronic) gearbox for stock, 2.5 TFSI RS3 and TT RS models, from 2015+

While the wet clutch DQ500 DSG (S-Tronic) system is known to be generally strong, reliable and easy to use, there are some known issues which can hamper drivability on stock vehicles.

These include: excessive clutch slip in second gear; shifting at very low rpm resulting in a droning sound, and a slow response when accelerating. From the factory, Sport mode is too aggressive and high-revving for many situations, while in Drive, shifts may feel sluggish – both impacting on the drivability of the vehicle.

In the same way that ECU software optimises the way an engine performs, TVS’ gearbox (TCU) software does the same for the twin-clutch DSG (S-Tronic) unit.

The TVS programme removes unnecessary downshifts, allowing you to hold onto a gear for longer, but also increases the shifting speed, which provides a more responsive and enjoyable driving experience. The max shifting rpm is increased to 8500rpm and a special launch control function is also added.

The TVS Drivability Upgrade will transform the way your stock, Audi RS3/TT RS drives and also reduce wear on gearbox components.

Please note: The TVS Drivability Upgrade is designed specifically for stock vehicles. If your vehicle has been tuned, please check out the Stage 2+ to Stage 4 DSG (S-Tronic) TVS tuning options.
