I'm gonna get my t sport chipped and may go with APR simply because of the 20% discount at the moment.
I just wanted to know what people thought of their stuff in relation to Oettinger and AMD (my preferred choices if finances didn't dictate). Are they similar in general driving feeling, smoothness of acceleration etc.
The guy I spoke to about the APR tuning said I'd be looking at 195 bhp and 240 lbs of torque. But looking on the websit of star performance (APR dealer)they seem to put it at 190bhp and around 210 lbs of torque. They have a dyno graph showing 186bhp abd 197 lbs of torque on a 1998 a3. So I'd be interested to know if anyone has had their APR'd car dynoed. I'm confused cos 240 lbs of torque sounded great but 197 lbs is a bit less appealing really. I know its not all about figures but I would like an indication of what I'm getting.
Also I was told that I can't get the APR serial port tuning because mine is a 1998 car. Does that mean I couldn't get serial port tuning elsewhere such as Revo or AMD too. I'd prefer the serial port tuning if available by another tuner.
