I always preferred the pre-facelift throttle response in every way.
We are talking D3 in this subforum right? My car is a 2007 pre facelift and it definitely has no throttle cable.

Yeah, but HP was replying to a D2 specific question. Gets confusing when both generations get discussed in one thread!

Yes, all D3's are fly by wire!

I just tried this yesterday mine was in the left position turned it right and took it for a spin, driving around 30mph and then tried flooring it only thing I noticed was what seemed to be a bit of increase lag when i put my foot down, It might just be me being thick as a castle wall and doing it wrong but I didn't notice an increase in changing gear speed
