"Best" tune for MK6 R

Which software will I be able to get the most power out of a tune without upgrading my turbo? Most bang for the buck. It seems like IE is doing really well but would like opinions

i ran I.E.'s tune. I couldn't recommend it more. really easy to use especially without having to go to a shop and pay labor. the stage 2 pro is awesome.

I'll be the third to say that I absolutely Love my IE Stage 2 Tune...

It drives like stock but with a lot more punch, not jerky, or finiky,... its how the car should've came from the dealer.

and no bullshit, I do get better fuel mileage when Im easy on the skinny.

We have flashed a countless number of MK6 Golf R's with APR software and have always had good luck. From Stage 1 through stage 3 setups. Reliable, driveable and reasonable horsepower gains with a great support system in place.

I say go with what is most accessible to you. If you have any questions please let us know.

No experience but if I had a Golf R I would go I.E. route.

What do you like about IE over the other tuners?

I'm asking because getting the R ECU tuned is on my wish list and I've been trying to sort out the different options available.

I'm happy with my apr tune performance but if I had to do it all over again I would probably go with something that doesn't always require me to go to an authorized dealer. Super annoying having to pay labor fees and additional charges for moving up in stages.
