I put Revo Stg. 1 on my car at 40k miles and currently at 129k miles, with no issues with upgraded plugs and R8 coils every 30-35k miles. The tune has been great so far but it hasn't been without issues.

1. If you don't have a DSG tune (like me), driving in auto becomes frustrating. When you want 50% acceleration, the DSG kicks down to many gears and accelerates as if you are at 100% throttle. This is strictly a DSG issue.

2. In 80F+ degrees w/ AC...the tune cuts timing...A LOT. But you get use to it and learn how to match your driving style to the tune

Easy fixes. Get a fmic and drive it in manual mode if you don't have the dsg tune

That's what happens with my Neuspeed power module, except around 70+ degrees. For some reason, it's always after a 2-3 shift.(6 Speed Manual)

Had a boost leak and another highly known shop stated I needed a new turbo which I knew was false. I always go to KMD but since it was closer to my house I went there. They first stated it was a hose which I knew then stated I needed a whole turbo replacement. Went to KMD and as stated it was a hose that goes to the N75 valve that controls boost pressure. I couldn’t recommend KMD tuning enough, great guys. Some shops are ran by POS people. For everyone I hope they know a little about cars so they don’t get taken for a ride by those shops.

Ah got it, I heard about them through google and they had great reviews. Drove a little over an hour north to get to KMD Tuning. Glad your car got fixed and for a reasonable problem. Your car is clean, was looking at it prior to walking inside the door haha.

Definitely get those R8 red top coil packs in there. My stock coil packs blew out shortly after the Revo tune. The tuner told me that Revo uses a lot of juice from the coils.

Thanks for the advice! I ordered the plugs/coils off Amazon so they should be coming tomorrow.
