Where's the evidence COBB has any sort of VAG tuning expertise? I'd go with them for Subaru, but not VW. I presume they will just buy in a tune and then slap it on an AccessPort. And based on their current prices it's not much of a saving for an unknown product.
My personal experience with COBB and tuning my Legacy GT was not outstanding. The tune worked fine, but COBB seemed pretty amateurish to deal with in many ways and the APv2 was a bit of a PITA.

Happy there's a new dog in town. Not planning on making the change, though. Not unless Cobb offers some disruptive feature.

this is quite interesting with Cobb and also AMS exploring the VAG world... I've always loved the Accessport, even had one of the originals for my '04 STI, but they came a long way since then.

I just emailed COBB asking about future support for the VW MKVI as I just sold my Subaru STI and bought a '13 R!

This is SOOO exciting. COBB has made it incredibly easy to swap tunes. Literally, if I pull up to a gas station i can change my MAP and run the fuel that is available on the spot. No internet, no nothing!

What would be REALLY exciting is if they bring the flex fuel system to VW.

Biggest issue is my new R is Stage I Flashed by APR for intake and HPFP .. i was planning on going Stage II with APR - but I think I should hold off now to see what COBB is doing!

Also - first post! Excited to be back in a Volkswagen!

COBB Doesn't necessarily work like this. COBB only wants COBB items and products running through their maps.

The only other tunes produced onto Accessports (for my Subaru STI at least) were pro-tunes by COBB certified tuners.

Very similar idea to APR. Most of it has to deal with liability.

COBB coming to the VW scene no matter how late is a good thing. It shows they have future interest in VW, not just MKVI.

COBB went through fundraising the past two years, this is a sign of where the investors want to take the company. Very exciting.

I agree!

from what it sounded like, COBB should be coming out with there branded stage 1 intake and stage 2 downpipe to standardize there tunes. I can assume standard k04 file as well. from me I want to see in-depth tuning with water meth, e85 blends and race fuel files

Whale cum to the club!

Also just FYI - APR tubes can be switched on the fly with APR mobile. Even in the middle of a pull. This is limited to the 4 tunes that have to be pre-flashed into the ECU at a dealer, though.

I'm looking to see whether Cobb can make an even better solution (including logging, configuration changes, etc.).

I get what you're saying.. All I'm suggesting is that it would be cool.. I've driven Porches with it believe me.. It's awesome.. It would just be a little something that could set them apart from the others, that's all..

the thing is, just about every tuner out is "COBB certified." You can even modify the tunes yourself. It's just like Eurodyne but more user friendly so you don't have to connect a computer to see what your car is doing and way more support nationwide.

you are absolutely correct. I am so excited to have COBB dipping into VW. I picked the perfect day to move into VW!
