A few tuners have done software on the R. Any particular reason you want APR?

Hi Kev0,
Alot of guys on the forums talk good about APR and have good results. Maybe just me but it seems that APR and VWR have a good relationship.
Do you have something else in mind?
By the way, she was offloaded yesterday. Getting close!!!

Howzit Guys, its been a long time since ive been on the forum. I took delivery of my CW R in May last year and really had lots of fun. Unfortunately we had a big accident on 15 Dec 12, and my R has been scrapped. None of us were hurt in the accident, just some minor scratches.

I'm sorry for the incident.
You sell a few pieces of the machine or repair it?

Thanks, the insurance scrapped him. Parts might be available, are you looking for something in particular?
