      We are incredibly pleased to be returning to Chicago in 2011 to sponsor Midwest Treffen 15.

      Chicago is my home town, and my family is nearby, so I have other motivation for coming to visit, but the show itself is a tremendous experience that is not to be missed, and we had such a good time last year that there was never a question about whether or not we would be coming back.

      With that said, we plan to be a little more involved this year as well.

      - We will be joining the cruise with you all.

      - We hope to participate in the auto-x with our TTS project car as well.

      - And we are also planning some cool new things for the show on Sunday as well.

      We will be posting periodic updates in this thread as the event draws closer.

      I have just been given confirmation from Revo Technik, that we as a dealer of theirs, have been granted special permission to offer a sale on Revo Technik software tuning at the show.

      For ALL vehicle applications, any full Revo Technik software flash will be for sale on-site at Midwest Treffen for $100 off the normal pricing!!!

      This sale is also open to all 2010+ vehicles as well, which have the security lockout feature on the ECU from the factory. We will be able to perform ECU unlocking services on-site at the show for no additional fee so as to enable flashing/tuning of the newest model vehicles as well.

      For example:

      VW and Audi 1.8T

      Stage 1 - Normally $399 - Midwest Treffen Sale $299
      Stage 2 - Normally $449 - Midwest Treffen Sale $349

      VW and Audi 2.0T FSI and TSI

      Stage 1 - Normally $499 - Midwest Treffen Sale $399
      Stage 2 - Normally $549 - Midwest Treffen Sale $449

      VW and Audi 3.2L VR6

      Stage 1 - Normally $399 - Midwest Treffen Sale $299

      All upgrade flashes between stages will still carry their normal respective fees (between $50-100 depending on the application).

      Because of the extra time and labor involved in removing and opening the ECU's for 2010+ vehicles in order to tune them, it would be really helpful for us to know in advance how many flashes we can anticipate needing to perform. For anyone that is interested in getting tuned by Revo at the show, we would appreciate if you could add your name to the list below, and invlude the year and model of your vehicle, as well as which stage of tuning you will be getting. Please also include whether you would like to have your vehicle tuned Saturday at the auto-x, or on Sunday at the show.

      ie: Mike - 2007 VW GTI - Stage 2+ - Sunday

      1.

      Thanks all, and we're looking forward to seeing you all at the show.

      How much would it cost? If I wanted to go back to stock, how hard would that be? Sorry for the questions, but I'm possibly interested in doing this tomorrow at the show.
