I get that, totally. I know the S3 and Golf R share the same engine. I just don't see them dropping the ea855 in a Golf just yet. I can see it in like a Tiguan R, if that ever came to be. That way they could charge up the ass for it, since it's an SUV.

You do not need to keep it plugged in. You simply plug it in flash the tune then unplug it. You can use the AP to read trouble codes if you ever get a CEL also. But no you dont need it plugged in after you flash it. You can simply keep it in the glove box or put it in your room in the box it came in.

I keep mine plugged in with a mount for the gauge function.. I keep Boost pressure, engine temp, and something else that i cant remember on permanent display.

Yepp.

Just don't leave in your car at the mall or something. I've seen them being stolen out of people's cars.

ive left mine in now. Most people assume its a phone holder thats empty or a GPS. But i guess it depends on where you live.

But yeah its super simple to disconnect and take with you if wanted.

I hear ya. Given the rumor of "all GTI and Golf R now being shipped here as 4-door cars...so that the Scirocco may come soon as the 2-Door offering", maybe the 2.5L tfsi could come in the form of a Scirocco R?!?!?! I'd drink to that.

I want my next car to be a Golf R...but now I am waiting to see if the Scirocco rumor is true.

My next one will likely be an A4, I test drove one and it was such a nice ride, interior, etc. The R doesn't do it for me for some reason.

The R lost it for me when the 2-door went away. I could have made an R return to its more youthful looks...but not liking its direction right now with only a 5-door. That is just my personal taste...because even the 5-door can be made to look quite sinister.

Then, funny enough, I do like the Audi RS3 5-door Sportback...and of course it is not available here.
