      What do you think of the APR intake? Did you notice a difference? How about a sound?

      Yea, if you want a tin can, aged design, tiny back seat & trunk, high insurance, ricer status, etc. etc. :D

      No, seriously, we all love the Evo, but it's just not for everyone. :beer:

      There numbers are consistent with what I've personally seen on my own cars with a dynojet, which is a real drum/chassis dyno. If anything, I've seen APR numbers for stock and tuned a bit...

      Yea, please send me links to all the people that blew up their 335i's and GTI's with a tune.

      Autobahn has dual climate control and leatherette, power seats and the fender audio, and the 18" wheels. If you have nav you also have the lighting package.

      The GTI doesn't have leatherette, it's always been real leather. Our GLI's have the leatherette/V-tex.

      The engine in the GLI isn't changing for the 2015 refresh so there will still be a tuning market for our car. The parts are coming, just going to take more time. APR still has stage 2 and a big...

      I've been waiting for Unitronic because the stage 1 APR tune seems pretty lame. One guy posted a dyno of only 215whp I believe. My stock MKV GTI made 205whp and 210wtq. Definitely not worth it.

      You guys are lucky in other states. In VA there is no cap or restrictions and the typical dealer is charging $399-$599 now. That's like 4 or 5 bottles of really good scotch. Pretty absurd. I make...

      Ugh really? They made it sound like they were coming at Waterfest...in the other thread he just said "right around the corner". How much longer do we need to wait?

      Also where is Unitronic? They...

      Not according to APR...online flashing was only possible starting with the Simos 12 ECU..aka Gen 3 engines.

      I think it has to do with the ECU platform the VAG cars use. I think to develop for this ECU requires a significant R&D investment, developer license from Bosch, etc. so that may be one reason. ...

      Yes. It's getting the same refresh as the rest of the Jetta lineup, but retaining all of the GLI features (same engine, suspension, etc.)

      It is still a Gen3 platform engine / internals, with the integrated exhaust manifold and all the other improvements. Also our Gen3's do feature a larger Honeywell turbo (larger than the outgoing MK6...

      They are not the same; Beetle EA888 has the same engine as my '14 GLI. They lack the slightly larger turbo and the variable exhaust timing "valvelift", which accounts for the difference.

      I had an MKV GTI ('09) which is commonly considered the benchmark for build quality before they allegedly started "cheaping out" on the MK6. Yes, some of the interior bits were higher quality, like...

      They are using Honeywell and IHI turbos in the newer cars, closer to the old K04. APR is jumping straight to a GTX2863 series for the big turbo kit upgrade if that tells you anything. There are...

      I disagree. Lack of LSD is a widespread problem on FWD cars with > 200hp/torque. It's an issue turning and in wet/wintery conditions. Sometimes the E-LSD's and TSC are enough to offset some...

      The 370z *feels* like you are driving a smaller sports car. It's a more raw and defined experience. The Mustang feels more like a regular car, with a big motor. It's a muscle car. I would get the...

      That is a EA113..while I could agree that should be called the "Gen 1", it is not a "Gen 1" EA888 which we are discussing in this thread. Completely different motor.
