      if you go test drive a car from a dealer during the last hour of business hours you can keep it over night and return it in the morning, so just buy some red bulls on the way to the offices haha

      do you need a full physical car or just the software code from these cars? GoodSpeed pulled the software from my car 2 months ago and sent it to you guys. don't know if that helps or if you need to actually run it physically in a car.

      any updates on this? I thought being away in Munich driving sweet new Audi's for a week would result in some updates with APR getting a car.

      TTS
      11-08-2011 11:03 PM #10
      Im no motorhead.... or even semi smart when it comes to engines.... But the TFSI is a very close call in terms of TQ(fun) without a tune..... The stage 1 tune could make this mill a real winner! I am very curious to see how this engine will match up to the TTS mill after the Stage 1. That all being said, the base tt with an S-line package will get you pretty a TTS exterior with very very minimal differences.... add a chip and you might have a better car for a much better price.

      That is my thought as well. The TTS still uses the EA116 based engine, which is getting on in years now. Supposedly there's an EA888 300HP slated for the TTS's future. I can't remember where I read that, but if it's on the internet then it must be true, right? To date, Audi has claimed that the EA116 is built to withstand higher turbo boost due to stronger internals. Yeah.... I think that argument is a bit weak. My theory is that they are phasing out the EA116 and needed to elminate parts inventory before moving on the the EA888 entirely.

      Oh, and let's not forget the fact that the EA888 is timing chain based, whereas the EA116 is still an old fashioned belt.

      I'm thinking about it and will probably do it. I just picked the car up in Chicago on Monday so I'd at least like to drive it a few days. Give me a break guys.

      We're trying to coordinate things. I'm willing to help but not to give up my new to me car for an open ended period. I've asked Arin to try to give me a time when they could make it a priority and get it in, run their tests and get it out. They are a 3 1/2 hour drive away from me so dropping off and picking have to be planned in advance since I have to work for a living and we're talking about my daily driver. I wish it were easier.

      Happy Monday!
