    Vendor and Solicitation Threads


    Administrators are JJ-R32 and Gulfer

    Please contact the administrators for more details on becoming a golfmk6.com sponsor or vendor by using the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of any page or forum (http://www.golfmk6.com/forums/sendmessage.php )

    Golfmk6.com prohibits the advertising and solicitation of products and/or services from businesses and/or their agents without prior consent from one of the Administrators of this forum. Please PM an Administrator for clarification or permission BEFORE starting a thread or listing a business in your signature. Audits are randomly done and bans and citations will be given to violators of this rule. Each citation is reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the site administrators and moderators.

    Violating vendors of the rules below may receive a forum ban.

    1. Vendor advertisements Threads are to be posted in the Vendor Classifieds forum. Threads announcing promotions and discounts should be placed in the Vendor Classifieds forum. Cross-posting a thread announcing promotions and discounts across multiple forums is considered spamming and is prohibited.
    • New product announcement threads can go in the applicable forum, but sales of the product should go in the vendor forum.
    2. Vendors are allowed to organize Group Buys by initiating a thread in the Vendor Classifieds forum. Cross-posting a Group Buy thread across multiple forums is considered spamming and is prohibited.

    3. Signatures Advertisements are allowed but we ask to keep it of appropriate length. We also ask to add information on your signature line stating the company you work for, etc., so golfmk6 members know you are a vendor.

    4. Golfmk6.com members who choose to rate sellers in classified threads must post with a FIRST-HAND and FACTUAL account of a transaction and/or product. If for any unfortunate reason you must post a negative experience, please***GOLFMK6 MEMBERS PLEASE READ (Technical Forums)***


    The technical threads have become much more argumentative lately. Although this forum is relatively new, members have approached me regarding the direction some threads seem to head. As usual, posts will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

    When a thread involves a discussion regarding a particular product or company that you may not be in support of, you are expected to post responsibly/maturely if you choose to comment in such a thread. Failure to do so and you will be subject to infraction and/or ban.

    In regards to the ban: The initial ban might be for two weeks, followed by a chance to come back to the forums with a better attitude. If you choose not to change the intent of your post, then you will be permanently banned.
    Simple as that.

    Take care and enjoy the forum.

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.
