Been driving my new N Line for about a week.

So far I love it except the factory tune. What were they thinking?

I hate how this thing falls on its face during shifts. Ie. accelerate to 5-6000 rpm, shift, get back on the gas and get flung into the windshield. Unless I hit red line, this thing doesn’t stay in boost. No es bueno.

Secondly. Rolling into the throttle between 2-3000rpm feels uneven and “surge-y”.

Am I the only one getting this behaviour?

I just started pushing the car after it rolled 1000km on the clock.

The drop off at 5-6000 RPM is due to the small turbo, not so much the factory tune. The small turbo makes it quick at lower RPM but with the disadvantage up high. When spirited driving I never see the need to bring it up past 6000.

As the for the surge, I've noticed that as well especially in hotter weather. Part of it is due to turbo lag but even at constant throttle it will sometimes jerk. People swear by 91 octane that it solves the problem, so it may be worth a try if you're using 87.

I was referring to the loss of power when the revs come down after shifting. The little turbo does fall of up too. But that’s to be expected. I’m not a fan of the lag when getting back on the gas. Though.

I’m running 94 octane.
