Well I feel like I got kicked in nuttz today and I am totally at a loss right now..
So I got my APR K04 installed today, but I got the worst news at the end of the install. APR DOES NOT have a K04 Flash for my ECU.
The shop I am working with it, they are trouble shooting the issue with APR, but APR's ETA on giving me an idea IF a flash can be created is at least a 2 to 3 week wait.
I am just crushed right now and I don't even feel like I can deal with it right now.
But on lighter side I got my Fogs lights done....
My 19 x 8's weigh in at 19.4lb per corner.
Certianly made a big differnece in steering feel though, noticable when i was pushing it with some R's around the track on the weekend.
Hopefully APR can get to the bottom of the tune for you.
Will be good to get your opinion on the performance boost.
Sure it will all workout, was just really disappointed last night when I picked up the tig.
I figure APR hasn't done many Tiguans, even fewer Tiguans with a K04, and then even fewer Tiguans with K04 that also are 6MT.
Just a Waiting game now...
Hope it works out sooner than later for you, you've got a pretty sweet build going on.
The word that was passed on to me from the shop: APR has never ran across my ECU version before, either during R&D or while in production.
I'm not 100% if they're just speaking about the K04 file or any of the stage I or II flashes as well.
This is the first I have ever heard of 2009 Tiguan running into an ECU issue before, so I don't know if its the problem is with my ECU or just that APR has never ran across this so they never "had" to write the program for it.
Its just a guess on my part that the Tiguan Auto Vs Tiguan MT ECU versions are different.
I will know hopefully by the end year what APR says.......
Comes in three....
Wheel place just called told me one of the BBS is un-repairable...
Whats going to be the 3rd?
Dang man just catching up on all this. Suck! So did they have to take the k04 kit off after they installed or did they find out before the install? Also why did you have to fix the BBS's?

+1 to wondering about hte BBS repairs.
Were they damaged in transit?
BBS's I got used off another member... I didn't see a bend in any of the pics or did I see it when I had the wheels un boxed at my house, but when dropped them off at the wheel place the first thing to the tech pointed out to me was the wheel with the bend... needless to say I was
Hope everyone had great holidays.. Got to spend some good time with my wife and daughter for X-mas and then the wife and I flew down to the FL keys with some friends for the new year.
Great time had by all
Got an e-mail that APR is working on the flash and it could be ready this week.
The replacement CH wheel is with the UPS man right now, they have tried to drop it off twice but since I was in the keys they didn't leave it on my pouch so hopefully 3rd time is the charm.
Mounted my set of 235-55 tires that I had taking up space for now.. will look much better once i get a set of 235-45s tho

Nice to see.
Is your's the FWD model?
I only ask as the AWD model we got in Australia has factory camber settings and yours doesn't seem to from the photos.
Team_v, its FWD... over in the NA the only trim line that has the 6MT are the S's and those come with zero options if you select the Manuel transmission.
