Can't you just drive a bit aggressive and the throttle will automatically adjust to a more immediate response?

Yeah it could take you 1 mile or 1000 miles of aggressive driving.

It really depends on how you drive. You could see better results driving aggressively or not. When you drive in stop and go traffic, there's not much aggressive driving you can do. This is why I had to find a way to reset it. The biggest problem is not throttle adaptation but engine software adaptation for short and long term trim and spark advance as well. Resetting one only slightly changes another. Also throttle adaptation reset is strange. You get only a slight improvement which builds higher, then it normalizes so it's short lived but worh it since it only takes 20 seconds to reset the throttle.

How much of a difference do you all feel when you reset it? When I did mine, I felt MUCH more power, almost like I was in a different car. I drive fairly fast to begin with, but I wouldn't have thought it would make such a difference.
