Is APR tuning remap any good?

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... :) :)

Ive heard apr dont make the claimed power gains and vary quiet a lot.

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.
