    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.

    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 ***
