So far we've had several successful APR ECU upgrades on 2.0 TDI (140hp) Audis and VWs and we want to give everyone some detailed information with regard to availability of an ECU upgrade for your TDI. When you come to see us, we will plug into your OBD-II port and load APR's Direct Port Programming online flashing suite. The computer will scan your car to see if software is available. If it is, you can flash and go on your way. If it isn't, we'll do what's called a "Code Extract" to send your ECU information to APR for software creation.
Currently we are extracting and flashing ECU's with the 1796 processor. However, vehicles with the 1797 ECU found in select new vehicles are still in development. We can take a good guess which processor revision is which based on your ECU Box code, however, the only way to be sure is to open the ECU and check.
Audi/VW/Seat/Skoda have MANY ECU part numbers and revisions for each vehicle in their fleet, so typically during the launch of a new software code, there's some lag time before all of the codes are available. Codes will not become available unless APR actually sees them, which means taking a trip to come see us to do that scan/code extraction will speed up the process.
If you have a Ross Tech VCDS cable, you can do some homework to find what you have. Just follow this guide: http://www.goapr.com/support/boxcode.php
At this point, the following ECU box codes & revisions are available to flash right now:
2.0TDI CJAA 03L906019CL S7966
2.0TDI CJAA 03L906019CM S7967
2.0TDI CJAA 03L906019DA S9144
2.0TDI CJAA 03L906019DA S8217
2.0TDI CJAA 03L906019DB S9047
2.0TDI CJAA 03L906019DB S7970
2.0TDI CJAA 03L906022PB S8216
2.0TDI CBEA 03L906022SQ S7968
If you're not on that list, you may need to be code extracted. However, we will not need to extract your ECU if you're on the lists below.
Here are the other ECU codes we currently have and are waiting for APR Engineering to release:
2.0TDI CBEA 03L906022SQ S7276
2.0TDI CBEA 03L997016N S8680
2.0TDI CBEA 03L997016P S8681
Lastly, here are other codes we are waiting for APR's Engineering team to test before they can be bumped up to the next level for a release:
2.0TDI CJAA 03L906019EE S1181
2.0TDI CJAA 03L906019EE S3521
2.0TDI CJAA 03L906019EF S1182
2.0TDI CJAA 03L906019EH S3523
2.0TDI CBEA 03L906019EJ S1466
2.0TDI CJAA 03L906019HG S2261
2.0TDI CJAA 03L906019HH S2260
2.0TDI CJAA 03L906019HH S3524
Hope this clears up any questions or confusion out there with regard to "select" TDI software availability from APR. If you have additional questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us!

Just had the ECU program upgrade installed. NICE! Absolutely feel the difference. The engine comes alive with noticeable torque increase at all RPM's. Sport mode is a blast. Plenty of passing power and jaw dropping amazement from other compact car drivers. Very impressive for just a ECU program. 65-90mph is effortless...much like a much hogher powered sports car. APR did a nice job offering and perfecting a simple affordable upgrade to a stock TDI. Next purchase is a cold air intake to compliment the software and allow the engine to breath a little more freely. Any suggestions?
Go do it...and enjoy your ride.
Sitting on just two good sets right now (with more coming in a few months) so unfortunately not in a position to offer a discount, nor do we send wheels with free shipping. Contact us directly via email with your shipping details and we'll get you an accurate quote.
StopTech has unveiled their new line of racing brake pads!
StopTech, the ultra performance and racing brand from Centric Parts, introduces a new line of StopTech Racing Brake Friction that brings the company’s “Brake Late, Finish First” philosophy to a wider range of racing disciplines. The new racing pads complement the company’s extensive range of high performance brake component and system upgrades - and help turn any StopTech system into a dedicated race system.
Available in four formulations, the new StopTech Racing Brake Pads are engineered to provide optimal friction levels for a variety of different racing applications. All StopTech Racing Brake Pads provide shorter stops, increased control through superior pedal modulation, and fade-free performance at extreme racing temperatures. StopTech Racing pads are designed to provide superior performance in any racing brake system, and match the outstanding performance capabilities drivers have come to expect from all StopTech Racing Brake Systems and components.
StopTech's unique metallic compounds are blended with carbon and graphite particles to provide an optimal high temperature race friction material. The result is smoother, more predictable and more consistent brake engagement along with exceptional release characteristics not found in most other racing friction materials.
StopTech engineers work directly with race teams, often trackside, to gather valuable experience in dynamic real world conditions. Data is immediately integrated into the research and development process, resulting in optimized brake systems for individual racing programs.

Of course, we’re a bit biased here but we really think you can’t go wrong when you combine an H&R suspension kit (in this case, a set of their H&R Sport Springs) with some Hartmann Wheels for your Volkswagen or Audi. Matt knows what we’re talking about and even though his appointment was originally for just the spring kit install, he knew very well he couldn't leave it at that. The Hartmann Euromesh 4-GA finally became available as of the last container arrival in VW Mk5 & Mk6 fitment and Matt wanted to be the first to rock them on his JSW!
He apologizes in advance he didn’t get a chance to wash it for this picture but please understand that it’s not really fun washing your car in sub-freezing temperatures. Let’s give him a “pass” on that one and hope he rolls back through when it’s all clean, or at least sends us high-res images when it is. Enjoy the new set-up, Matt! It looks GREAT!!
edit: Post-wash picture sent to us over the weekend…
APR is pleased to announce an unplanned 24 hour sale to thank all of their loyal customers and to commemorate Audi’s 1-2 victory and APR’s podium finish at the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona!

Shop online at Achtuning.com NOW until 6PM EST tomorrow and get SALE PRICING on just about anything offered by APR - since we STOCK these items your ON SALE purchase will ship immediately!! GO APR!!!
An addition to the Pignataro Volkswagen line-up is this H&R Sport Spring and 18" Hartmann Euromesh 4-GA equipped Volkswagen JSW! Our local mod-friendly dealers know how to display and sell a proper looking VW!
It was in May of 2008 when we first asked Audi and VW enthusiasts what they thought about a possible new style we were considering adding to the Hartmann Wheel line-up. The unique style seemed to be a hit but priorities meant we had to put the idea on hold. Similar styles and new brands have since popped up with a good portion of the automotive industry embracing the once popular mesh style from the early 80s. When our German partners were recently asked to produce a higher quality, TUV approved version we jumped at the opportunity to add the retro-styled, German-quality wheel to the Hartmann line-up. While we might be a bit late to the game, we are proud to announce the latest addition to the Hartmann family – the HLP-410-GS:M!
In similar Hartmann fashion, the low-pressure heat treated cast wheel is painted a high-gloss silver then diamond-cut machined on the face. A clear-coat completes the process for a durable, lasting finish! Current sizes are 19×8.5 with either a 38 or 45mm offset – available to fit most of the Audi and Volkswagen models and they weigh 27 lbs. You’ll be able to find these in the online store shortly.
