I would if I didn't already take advantage earlier last year.

Oh trust me it does. I had mine done 1 week ago and the car is completely different. You won't be disappointed.

Stock to Stage 1 was a huge jump. Also, APR recently updated their Stage 1 and Stage 2 tunes. You'll notice a bigger jump from stock to APR Stage 1 than I did last year. I'd take advantage of the Fully Loaded deal...I think it's great. I love being able to switch between programs without a dongle.

I'm going to try to swing by my APR dealer on Monday to get the free update, too. Let's go together!

Also, going from Stage 1 or 2 to Stock mode feels like jumping into a Prius in Eco Mode. :P

I am very tempted to get it done sometime this coming week but I still can't decide if it's the right move to make.

You can always swing by APR's HQ in Opelika. I'm sure they can persuade you. You're in Alabama, no?

I'm not completely sure what's in v1.2, but APR has been using the 2.0 TSI on their race cars the last couple of years. Their first tunes were conservative. However, with their new findings through R&D for their own race team, their software update pushes the limit even further.

I am in Alabama. Im only about 1.5 hours away from the HQ. I went to the HQ to have Stage 2 installed on my MKV. My reservation is that I am not sure that stage 1 is going to be enough since I am used to a stage 2 MKV. (I imagine there isn't a MASSIVE difference between stage 1 and stage 2 and I was really starting to want more power on my MKV). I am interested in going with a K04 but it's going to cost me 3200 installed for roughly 270WHP on APR's tune and I am not convinced it's worth it to me. If the figure was closer to 300whp then I would be more inclined. Around 300whp is what I am hoping for and I don't know enough about Unitronic, Revo, or GIAC to feel comfortable going with their software just yet. I had GIAC on my MKIV R32 and it worked great but it's not like there was all that much power to be made on the R32 anyway without going FI or digging into the engine.

I figure I'll get a good year or so out of it stock and then do an APR Stage 1. Still just trying to get used to having a car payment again. I love it even stock, so I can't imagine how the extra 50 some odd HP and torque will feel. Something I want to graduate to over time and not just get right away. Thats just me though and I look forward to getting it. Ive read a lot of reports from people who have it that they brought their car in to the dealer for warranty service and more than once, the dealer did not detect the reflash, so thats really encouraging because the only thing I don't want to deal with is warranty issues.
