The crackles stop 1-2 seconds after onset. They don't keep crackling as you coast.

I think that if you gave us a shot to tune your car you will be pleasantly surprised by the quality as well as service. We have a lot of hours of development in these calibrations and there has been an emphasis placed on driveability as well as safety and performance.

Really? APR has been having a lot of issues with their latest updates and people still aren't fully happy with their "patches." I wouldn't really consider them trust-worthy. I would never pay for their software.

Is there any importance to the crackling and popping other than just symphony to the ears?

That's brilliant. What is your support like for the UK? I may be getting a Cobb and the crackle map after my Clutch upgrade and DP.

I take it I'll have to send some logs as UK 98RON is totally different to the USA stuff.

I would've went with Cobb if they were around for Mk6 back in late 2015, already gunned for APR at the time, was great on stage 1 v1.2 but the stage 2 v2.1 had so much driveability issues and v2.4 improved it but not perfect i think.

APR is so ingrained in the VW/Audi community it's scary. I don't get it.

The future is now. Cobb has opened a window for us - making things easier. I like the idea of a protune. More precise than an OTS tune. I'll likely be going with a stratified tune.

Good to know.

I love it when mine does it first thing after a cold start when getting going. I already am tuned through GIAC so I'm not changing anytime soon. A Stratified tune is a really good route to go though.

APR is great at advertisement that's for sure. Their software seems to have gone downhill at least for the Mk6 GTI. Not knocking all OTS software as there are a lot of good ones out there, but it seems if you find a really good protuner for your Cobb AP, like Stratified, you can definitely get more bang for your buck. If I was in the market for a tune I'd definitely be interested in checking them out.

With all the stuff that's gone on recently, I wouldn't trust them more.
