    Hi all!

    I can't seem to find APR remaps mentioned on here anywhere. Does anyone have any experience of them and is it any good? I particularly like the idea of switching between maps using the cruise control stalk.

    Hello,
    I have the APR stg2+ remap for a year now and I am VERY VERY satisfied... its perfect, lots and lots of power throughout the whole rev range... not any complatints or bad thoughts... However I dont have the cruise control option as I dont think its that great to switch maps that often... but thats just my opinion.... Anyway, at first I had stage 2 and it was Awsome but then when I went stg2+ its was just mindblowing.... It does 0-60 in 4.5sec (G-tech) and 302kmh top speed... :)

    That's good to know, though you appear to have caught the tuning bug far more than I am planning to lol That's some beast you've created.

    I was only thinking of Stage 1 remap and nothing else.

    Thanks man... That was the exact same thing I was thinking 17 months ago... Im sure you will go much more than stage 1 especially when you try it... but IMHO Milltek is a must have... :) :)

    Resonated or non-resonated? Or does it just depend how loud you want it?

    I had APR on my old Leon Cupra R and I found it a great map. It doesn't give the initial shove in the back that you get with Revo, as it is a lot smoother, but on the RR it was giving the same power. I also had the different maps installed, which was handy although not really needed as I used 98ron all the time, but the Anti-Theft is a MUST.
    I'm getting the 3.2 done eventually. I know I won't get the best power gains but I want it for the Anti Theft option.

    Navnayyar, I'll keep an eye out for you as I'm also from Bradford. Should be easy to spot you're car with the optics and wheels!:icon_thumright:

    Yes mate
    I need to get some new pics but it should be distinctive as it's lowered on H&R's, full Votex kit and custom painted Audi BBS splits reg H3 ***
