At this time the APR ECU Upgrade is offered as a single program only. Customers may choose APR software specific to their local fuel grades. North American customers may also return to an APR dealer at any time to reflash back to Stock or any other available octane. You are free to choose between any stock or performance mode without purchasing the software again. However, select dealers may choose to charge labor fees at their discretion.
North American customers purchasing the APR ECU upgrade will be entitled to a fully loaded ECU when it becomes available at no additonal charge.
- AlamoCity Audi - Just had the APR ECU tune done today, and in a word: amazing. Car feels transformed with much quicker throttle response and the additional low end (~3k rpm) torque is a huge boon in city driving. Can't wait to get it on the track. I can't imagine a better power-per-dollar modification out there. And as an aside, kudos to the APR support staff (I called them several times and they were incredibly helpful).
- gazza1 - It is APR day as I just had mine installed today as well on 98 octane. Quick brief is car NOTICEABLY quicker and pulls hard..hardcore is best word for now! Feels harder pull than my Cobb/mid pipe R35 GTR. Can start to feel real g force on the chest now. In second gear accelerating hard in a straight line the tyres now really squirm and the traction control works overtime. Best bang for buck out there...Worth every cent.
