I have the APR98 programme on my AGU - can't remember how many miles it had on it when the chip was fitted, but it now has 108k on it and no problems (not ones associated with the APR anyway[;)])

Not had APR (I will not rant on about it but had more than my fair share of issues. I understand the best place for it though is AwesomeGTI rather than the "independents")

AMD for me

Have had APR for over two years now no problems love the performance and being able to switch via the cruise control stalk.

Just need there uprated turbo kit at a reasonable price and I will be happy.

I had APR 95+98 on my Anni, and it immediatly caused problems.

Lifting off the throttle gently would cause the car to judder/shake.

Supplying dealer (fontain Audi) took a look at it, and blamed the engine mounts, but yet did not agree to putting the car up on ramps for an inspection - to atleast show me..

APR sent me a new VW DV, but that made no difference.

In the end I got absolutely no where with either of them. They took my money, and that was that.

Not long after, they guys I was dealing with at APR left and set up rival company REVO..

I was left with a very bitter taste from that, so that is why I waited and researched heavily before deciding to go AMD to chip my R32

Dont open that can of worms lol!

PS for other readers who arent in the know, note APR Europe were staffed by the team that is now known as Revo, we now run APR Europe alongside APR USA.

jblack - we wonder if we will ever see this kit to be honest!

I was of the understanding that the kit had been finalised why is there a delay ?

I would imagine that it is just a case of re-fabricating downpipe's and turbo gaskets as you are already selling the FMIC that they recommend.

Do they feel that there is no market for it ?

I tell you what if they sell it at the price you pay for it in the states then they would be selling them like hot cakes.

$3995 bad exchange rate = ?2500 for around 300bhp cant be bad ????

Not if you have a word in the ear of my friendly US airforce base contact or a contact I have who flys for exel trans-atlantic haulage.

Wink wink nudge nudge.

Anyway still at that price it would be competitive.

Just doesn't seem to be that much. Considering what you can do with stand alone etc.. Also in doing Turbo, Map and injectors you can get a good reliable 300bhp.
