      Seriously this whole PZEV deal is bloody confusing...
      I'm guessing a major difference is that PZEV engines have a different ECU, explaining why APR Stage 1 is compatible (yet).
      Anyone care to elaborate further?

      google/wiki PZEV. it's not exclusive to VW - it's pretty much a government standard depending where you live (and if your state government is choosing to abide by it)
      APR software is compatible with both CBFA and CCTA - the incompatibility issues lie in your ECU box code (there's as many as ~8-10?) APR from what i've heard/seen have cracked almost all. i would call APR or talk to (mike/arin) on here and give them your car information.
      they'll prob send you to an APR location if necessary so they can get a better understanding. it's a matter of a simple upload and download on a laptop connected to your car.
      i doubt you would even need to do that, though.

      Yeah I understand what PZEV is (simply a designation for "grading" a cars emissions into a certain class, PZEV, ULEV, LEV, etc)
      We tried to do a trial flash today on my 09, no luck as APR doesn't support my ECU yet, but we did send in the code extract from the ECU to APR to take a look at.
      Arin and Keith have been awesome btw, really awesome customer service they have over there. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      Xing my fingers that they will be able to support my car sometime soon, the current promo that's going on is an awesome deal.

      I actually went to see if I could get trial stage 1 software and they told me the code for my car wasn't cracked yet
      At least they'll be able to crack another one when I bring the car in again.

      Wow I figured all of the ECU codes would have been logged by now and had a flash ready. Guess I got lucky
      Also glad to see this thread still being of use instead of just my daily bumps to plead for a sticky thread

      ^ Seriously.
      Kudos Shippensburg for maintaining this thread.
      Looks like it's becoming a valuable resource for us TSI guys.

      I swear my TSI gets better gas milage.. my FSI always said about 300 miles left on a fillup, and dropped to 100 left by 1/2 a tank. My TSI on the other hand still says 160 left at a half tank marker.. At this very moment i am aimed for 390 miles on the tank if it continues as it has been.
      im stock so far, but have something hidden to activate later.

      My MFD usually says around 450-460 when I fill up
      But I just got APR's Stage 1 today...so I think that number might change

      Has anyone noticed how the VW's website is giving the wrong compression ratio for the 2009 model?
      "As anyone who has ever tinkered with an old BMW engine or looked out on to the wing of a jet can attest, pure response to engineering requirements can sometimes deliver just as much pleasure as a more intentionally aesthetic design process."

      NOTE TO CANADIANS: THERE IS NO LONGER THE "3 YEAR-36,000 MILE (3yr-60K Km) CARE-FREE MAINTENANCE PLAN" IN OUR COUNTRY. SAD TO SAY!
      There are some MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAJOR diffs. btwn VW.ca and VW.com.
      Do NOT assume that just because Americans are offered certain plans and options that we are "entitled" to the same.
      Eg: The Plan I just mentioned....and paint options.

      I've heard that excuse before. Never fall for it. To do so, only confirms to the salesman that yer a sucka! Tell HIM...that he had better know his **** before he starts flogging off cars he's still not familiar with.
      And push your case.
      You will win.
      These days...anything to appease customers helps keep food on their family's table.
