I've had plenty of the APs, I'm going with UM myself, but I'm tired of logging and tweaking, and logging and tweaking, back and forth. if a tune is set, I don't have to worry about it anymore.

Otherwise I'd probably go with Cobb and an e-tune tbh. I have seen the complaints about APR and they seem to have been scarce on here lately (could just be me), so perhaps the mk7 is what they're most concerned about. While I understand that, you have to remember the people who put you there though.

Just an added dimension to the driving experience via aural symphony

I take it I'll have to send some logs as UK 98RON is totally different to the USA stuff.
good 93 in the US is similar to 98 in the UK but a log review is never a bad thing to get.

No, it won't be an issue!
More to come if people ask for them.

What about this one?

If possible could you do a turbo with like paint runs coming down from it in place of the VW emblem?https://www.newideastickers.com/prod...ayered-sticker
Kind of like that just not so much dripping.

So antsy for some nice weather to get my catback on and buy this flash...

Take my money!!!

Will be ordering soon.

Has anyone flashed this yet who previously ran a Cobb OTS Stage1+ map and can speak to the improvements??

I've had the following (all 93 oct):

Cobb Stage 1 (Stock intake)
Cobb Stage 1+ (Cobb intake but had MAF issues so returned it)
Cobb Stage 1 High Boost (IE intake)
Stage 1 Protune (not Stratified)
Cobb Stage 2 (Cobb turboback)
Stage 2 Protune (not Stratified)
Stratified Stage 2 (still in progress)

I'll say again that the initial Stratified map performed better than any of the other stage 2 tunes I've had. This is not so scientifically based on increased peak boost, holding higher boost longer, better MAF and fuel trim readings, and less traction in lower gears with my mediocre tires. Alex definitely knows this platform well and I've been very happy so far.

Hope this helps.

This is a more personal interpretation:

Installed the AP and Stratified tune today (stock car, 91 octane). I've only put about 20 miles on the tune, and haven't completed the MAF calibration or datalog refinement yet, but I'm quite impressed. Second and third gear feel really strong. Right after flashing, I noticed a slight lag in some gears on initial throttle tip-in, but those dips seemed to have worked themselves out and drivability is excellent now. Looking forward to putting on some more miles and sending logs to Stratified for the datalog refinement tune. I'll report back with any noteworthy developments as they come.

I drove ~35 miles on my 91 oct OTS STune today, but SoCal traffic did not allow me to do much...freeways were a parking lot...
Still my experience was exactly the same as fenster reports above...I drove pretty conservatively being the 1st time, and only went WOT around the last 5 miles of my commute. If you go "granma mode" @ with my DSG, you can hardly know the difference from stock. It is very refined.

The even with half throttle though, car is definitely more lively and the engine sounds angrier and feels much more igor to spool up. I did notice downshifts in Manual while simultaneously getting off the throttle were a bit crude in the beginning, but seemed to improve as the car adapted.
There is some increase in torque steer, as the map at 22psi or so, does ask a lot more from this FWD over the stock tune.

Trims appeared to be fine with our CA 91 pump gas right out of the box. Perhaps I will get some logs over the weekend as my current 91 tank runs low.

I have to admit that although I have all the COBB OTS maps, I don't know if I care flashing back and forth to see if there is a difference...more happy to go for a very mild E85 blend and try the 93 S-Tune instead for my next tank...

I find the first 50 miles is very surgey for my tune when fault codes are reset (not Stratified) for the first 50 miles while the fuel trims are sorting themselves out etc.
