Black Friday Tuner Deals?

Does APR not give free updates?
Depends which tune you got. APR hasn't updated their K04 tune since like I think 2012 was the last release? Probably because there hasn't been any major complaints about it like there was with their Stg1-2 tunes.

With that said, their K04 tune is like all or nothing. You either got horrible low end power or crazy high end with no middle grounds. It's not a pleasant tune at all if your K04. :rolleyes:

They’re up to v3.2 on the k04 tune. No way was that released anywhere near 2012. It’s much newer than that.

Updates are free from APR. The shop may charge a fee to flash, though.

What's up with those discounts tho.....? lol Maybe I can just become a dealer. :)

And none of that 5% off BS

APR has started
Only 10%? (╥﹏╥)

Edit: Clarification... it'd be nice if they could do a tiered discount. Ten percent off their $2,700 K04 kit or their $1,000 catback is quite a lot. But ten percent off, say, their $250 pendulum mount is not much. Sure, $25 is nice, but it's just not very enticing. They probably expect to clean out from the big purchases anyway.

I'm getting this ^^^^^ update on my APR stage 2 tune next week. APR updates are always free but my tuner will charge me at least 0.5 hr of labor.

Does nobody use Cobb anymore? The tunes don't make good power or...? I like the fact that I can use the ap to flash/read data.

I'm new to vw, I'd rather not have to go find a "dealer" if I needed an update in the future.

Cobb has not been in the VW game for as long as other companies. They do offer a great system with the access port and that can allow you to download custom tunes. Stratisfied is the popular tuner for the access port.

Like you I didn’t want to rely on a dealer and don’t live near one so I went with Unitronic as I can flash at home. They have been in the VW tuning game for a long time also.

The extra info on the Cobb access port is nice but now that I have OBD11 I don’t need it.

Ethanol blends are another thing to consider.

Are you running stock turbo?

ECS is doing up to 20% off brake service kits and USP is doing up to 20% off AWE. I'm sure they'll post more deals as BF/CM draw nearer.

Yes stock turbo. K04 is in the plans but not for another year or 2.

Unitronic should have $100 off tunes around BF/CM. That's when I bought mine. The $100 I saved went toward a PC laptop.
