Well i learned how to drive manual on an american car a few years ago, the gas peddle was very soft, my new car the gas peddle is very firm, my dad said it's because it's a german car, i really don't like having to apply different amount of force for each leg, i still don't have 1st gear as smooth as i want it, is there anyway to soften it up, if so that would really help, if not i'll get used to it

thanks in advance

You can't soften up a pedal as far as I know.

It's stiff because you have power behidn it. If you learned on sum shit like a dodge neon i bet you had to floor it to feel any pull. It is good that it is stiff cuz u can tell that a small push and you will feel the torque.
