So Cobb is who makes the accessport. Stratified is a totally different company, that just uses the accessport as a platform to tune the car. It doesn't track your driving habits, but they do have you do data logs which is where you'll start collecting a bunch of parameters they tell you to and do some 3rd or 4th gear pulls. Then send that in and they refine the tune off of that. I haven't done mine yet but the tune already runs great without them. I would say go Cobb from the start and just run the stock tunes, then when you're ready get a stratified tune. Are you 6mt or dsg? If 6mt then you'll need a clutch if you wan't the most out of the car.

Thanks for keeping up with this answering some FNG questions. It's DSG which I don't mind because im in a lot of City traffic daily. Trolling through the sales on forums looks like Cobb's are going around $550 - $500 used. Anything specific to look out for other than it being unmarried?

Make sure it's the right model, they make them for usdm and wm. If looking within the us they should be all usdm. I would look into a dsg tune also once you get tuned. A lot of people go with APRs and I think IE may have one too

Correct, IE does have a DSG tune as well.
