      Except that the "smaller" engine is the same as the Fiat Abath, which has a huge aftermarket. A simple piggyback will push the 1.4T past 200hp . . .

      Maybe. There are many successful BMW tuners (BMS and its piggy-backs comes to mind), along wiht companies that have broken the BMW Encryption and sell tunes (Cobb, etc.).

      If Manual/1.6T/AWD drive model with decent options is available in the $24-26k range, this will likely replace my wife's Crosstrek. She saw pictures of it and loves it.

      Based upon APR's website, APR appears to have well over 100 dealers in North America alone, plus another 100 or so around the world.

      10,000 flashs/ 200 dealers = 50 flashes per dealer, per year. ...

      Oh, I would bet that they are at least that high. Private equity funds usually don't deal in entities much lower than that range (except for certain small-business funds).

      And that may very well be. I was just responding to the people who couldn't believe that APR could afford a trailer to bring its cars to shows, etc.

      Also don't forget, however, that APR's...

      I have zero inside info here, so I am making semi-educated predictions. But you're still way off. First off APR, makes tunes for many other cars besides GTI's. Second, APR also sells a great of...

      For those of you with poor reading comprehension/lack of business knowledge -- APR IS NOT GOING OUT OF BUSINESS. They were simply acquired by a private equity firm.
