    APR’s patented DirectPort Programming is now available for the Simos 8.4 AND 8.5 ECUs found in many new 3.0 TFSI equipped vehicles! DirectPort Programming allows any authorized APR Distributor to directly program the vehicle’s ECU over the OBD-II port without ever removing or opening the ECU. The process is quick and easy thanks to APR’s online DirectPort Programming interface. Every upgrade takes place throught an internet connection to APR’s HQ ensuring each customer receives the latest software updates.

    *Some Q7 models support DirectPort Program and others only support the APR UPD at this time.


    Please note Audi supplies several ECU box codes and revisions for each vehicle. If a new ECU is found, please contact us!

    Has anybody had this remap done?

    Did you do any other tweaks at the same time?

    I'm trying to get a quote from the nearest APR dealer, but no reply for weeks*. All I've been asking for has been the pulley upgrade + remap, just to keep it simple.

    I'd also love to know how what exhaust options are available (6-to-1 manifold and back or are people getting good gains with more conservative exhaust tweaks) - I'd like a little more edge to the exhaust note, but nothing that drones on the motorway or is too loud generally.... it still needs to be stealth.

    I also thought the uprated intercooler would be a decent idea: any experience of this? I assume it ought to be done at the same time / before the remap?

    *edit: my bad - I can't find the e-mails, so maybe I didn't send them :( Chasing my nearest two now...

    How do you go about getting this remap?!? A few months ago, I was chasing two companies, (aprtuned.co.uk and austec.co.uk), both "APR dealers" according to the APR website and both never called/messaged me back and now austec is off the APR list,.

    I'm trying Tuning Werks (aprtuned.co.uk) again, but no reply yet.... the APR products sound good (aside from the iOS only version of their software), but I can't find anybody who is actually interested in fitting them :(

    anything else worth doing when doing this pulley + remap?

    the intercooler / cooling pack is more for track work.... anything else obvious to do at the same time? I've heard mention of downpipe change, but not sure what this involves and what that will do - I have visions of ruining my old Golf GTI as a daily driver because it got so loud and boomy, it was ridiculous... fun, but noisy....
