with an APR exhaust and Carbonio, I would guess it's APR stage II tuned. Go to the APR site and follow the instructions for changing performance modes via the cruise control stalk to verify. Congrats on the purchase, looks great!

Good to hear……you’re better off with the GTI.
I had both (MS3 & GenCoupe) and the only thing I miss is the Brembos on the Gen.

Well what helped was you bought the GTI with what it is missing in stock form... power. Stage II feels like what it should have come with from the factory. You made the right decision.. the Mazda is quick but feels amazingly cheap inside.

Thank you and I just found out what Stage 2 chip I have is REVO, my exhaust is Borla and my intake is APR Carbonio, and sports lowering springs

but I need to align my car because I got some tire cupping on the back wheels

Congrats, going to keep going with more upgrades? Some smoked side markers would clean that front end up!

You have a nice looking car, some expensive mods, and since you bought it from a VW dealer you should be covered. Enjoy.
