    Haven't heard anything bad about either to be honest mate. I think Autotech is more commonly used though (I stand by to be corrected on this)
    S3 8P2 Ice Silver, RNS-E, Bluetooth, iPod connection, Adaptive xenons, black styling pack, sunroof, privacy glass
    Mods since owned: Milltek Resonated TBE, Neuspeed P-Flo, Loba HPFP, Sachs Clutch with Loba SMF, Unicorn Motor Developments custom remap, brakes + suspension upgrades, LEDs internal and external, more interior kit

    The Autotech option is the internals and you fit them yourself and they are £290 delivered at the moment.

    The APR option is a ready built and tested unit so just a swap over, the only downside is that they are £650 ish.

    If the internals are fitted correctly then there should be no issues at all.

    Just pulling your leg mate. The HPFP can increase wear on the CF. But as long as you check it every 5000 miles (5 min job). You'll be fine
