Has anybody on here found when you engage 3rd gear it seems to pull better than any other gear?

I had a play with a tuned mk2 Golf GTi at the lights the other day and I got off to a bad start, but when I hit 3rd I just breezed past him. 3rd gear seems to be the sweet spot for me, what does everybody else think?

Yes that's exactly what happens, its strange how there is no mention from Peugeot about this 'overboost' function, but its definitely there!

The button that we are talking about are only for the speed limiter, override.So you are right there


What I was talking about is when the computer sense when you want to accelerate hard(overtaking for example) the extra boost kicks in. It will only be on for a few seconds.

Its like Turbo/boost on a new Intel/AMD CPU :p
