Which tune is on my car?

Bought a used 2011 DSG autobahn and the seller swore it was Not tuned or modified....

Bullshit and I knew it. Installed a boost gauge today and I'm pushing nearly 20lbs of boost in a 4th gear pull.


How do I figure out who's tune is on it?

Does it really matter? Drive the car and enjoy it. If it's otherwise stock, it's probably a stage 1 and you're lucky to get it for free!

Yeah hard to say. At least there are only like 6 tuners. May depend on region too. Like if you are near a tuner shop that specializes in a certain tune then probability is higher

Sure it matters. If it's stage 1 which I suspect then if I know who did the tune getting it upgraded to stage 2 will probably be cheaper.

Why pay full price when you can just pay an upgrade fee?

Save that money for the DSG tune.

Some don't let you upgrade without being original purchaser. Good luck
