      Just give Audi of America a call and have a chat with them about warranty coverage in this situation.

      Be warned that the folks trying to sell you a chip at a privately owned Audi dealer are different than the folks asked to front the bill in the event that warranty coverage is needed (Audi corporate)...

      From what I've been told by multiple dealers is that Stasis is the only Audi "approved" tuner...I'll be calling Audi America to confirm this.

      In Europe Abt Sportsline is the only Audi "approved" tuner...
      You go to your Audi dealer, they remove the ECU, then it get a Abt remap and get placed back in.
      You keep full Audi warranty.

      wrong people

      stasis is not affiliated with audi usa in any way, if a dealer is offering a stasis chip it is only that particular dealer having an agreement with stasis

      audi warranty DOES NOT cover stasis products

      if your car explodes, what is supposed to happen is stasis pays to get it fixed, but i read on another forum stasis is not doing so hot financially so...

      Q:

      Mr de Nysschen,

      Would like to know your thoughts on the relationship between STASIS engeneering and Audi. We have never heard an offical announcement from Audi regarding this relationship pertaining specificaly to Dealerhip sales and manufacturer warranty. Is is safe to say that my new supercharged S4 would be safe from warranty void due to the aftermarket Stasis software? Also that my ownership experence with my facing dealer will remain unchanged due to them not being a Stasis dealer .


      A:

      I personally admire the enthusiasm and ingenuity of the Stasis team. To be clear, there is no connection between Audi and Stasis. Modified powertrain and suspension components void the Audi warranty. It is my understanding that Stasis offer a warranty of their own on such modified components. Those components which are not affected by the modification will continue to be covered by the Audi warranty. Stasis is not an authorized tuner of Audi vehicles. quattro GmbH, a wholly owned subsidiary of Audi AG, is the only producer of modified Audi vehicles which enjoy full factory warranty.

      Bingo on Stasis. Even if you read their website, you can get a sense of this.

      Saying it's faster is the key. Need to wait for their 30-130 day for any objective results.

      Those guys have been in a pissing match for a few years now. They've done a ton of testing with the RS, and I think Pov's subjective opinion is a good sign.

      Yeah except they've been in a pissing match for years with constant one-upsmanship and talk of mods but never any proof to back it up. There are a few folks over there that document what they're doing but then a lot of talkers too. I don't follow everyone over there (mostly 996cab, jonnyc and jamiekip's builds) so I don't remember what Pov's previous experience was.

      Having a passenger shriek because you're accelerating towards a bend isn't really a great comparison between tunes

      My understanding is that there is no Audi "approved" stasis anything, just that stasis will warranty
      any damage their product does to your audi, if it is their fault...iirc... New stasis suspension and
      an immediate busted oil pan = no coverage.

      Probably just shy of the peak on the 93-octane ROW tune, so I'd guess ~4000 RPM.

      Just glancing at a few beta numbers, it was around 3600, but from about 2500-4700 RPM's the largest delta is only about 5%.

      I thought I'd be waiting a while from introduction before I got this flash in the spring, but I might be getting it as soon as it's available (at this rate).

      Nothing to do with the tunes you are right, I just mentioned it for entertainment value as alot of the vagoc members know myself and chris personally, and the thought of this big guy screaming is hilarious

      Bit of background on myself for our american friends. Ran a revo stage 2+ 2.0TFSI k04 for 18 months, sold that got the TTRS. Ran AMD stage 1 for a month or so, then ran revo stage 2 for over a year. Now swapped that for APR.

      First time tonight I went out for a hard drive in the car in reasonable conditions. Dry roads so I could push on in the bends, trying out some heel and toe now that APR have allowed the brake and accelerator to work together in harmony. Before any application of brake would render the throttle useless. I need more practice with this feature though!


      The car is fast, the power delivery is so sweet. Patience is a virtue, it will be worth the wait trust me. Not sure what else I can say without incriminating myself

      Just like to add that last time my friend was in the car with me he commented on how it felt quicker than usual. I never told him that I got a new map

      This is an interesting bit of information. If APR's tune will allow for both throttle and brake to be applied simultaneously, boost can be built up while still braking.
