I'm looking at replacing my old car. I really like the new sportwagens, but I can't buy a car that won't let me actually drive it. Does anyone have experience with overriding the brake override that overrides the driver from left foot braking? I've been researching, and researching, and keep coming up iffy. I know you can brake, THEN gas, but I need both. I don't want any responses saying left foot braking is dumb. I am not a race car driver, I am a commercial driver. I drive for a living. I need brake+gas at the same time to recovered understeer and to lock differentials in the snow. My old car is an old chrysler, I love that it obeys it's driver, but it's getting old. I also have a post on ABS if anyone has any feedback on that with the vws. these "safety" overrides at best take the fun out of winter driving, and at worst, act like a spooked horse trying to kill you.
