So I've driven a manual trans for most of my life.... MKI GTI, MKII GTI, various trucks and now my MKVI GTI.
I've never had a problem shifting in the past, but I sure do seem to grind geers a lot in this car. There are times when I shake my head at myself wondering what the heck I'm doing. Mostly during upshifts... And seems like 2nd to 3rd.
I know this car gets a few complaints for the long clutch travel and admittedly I'm not the tallest dude on the planet - but even when I move the seat up a few notches I still tend to grind a bit.
I'd hate to go to VW service and tell them I have a problem grinding gears because I know the look I'd get, but with my manual trans experience and never really having a problem in the past, I just can't help but wonder if there isn't an issue here.
Any input? Appreciate it!
