As far as REVO flash, I'm not sure who else in the forums has it on his/her CC.
I finally got stage 1 flash! REVO style! Thanks to Eurocode Tuning in Torrance, CA. Great service and manners. I also saw CC U L8TR and romney. They're both great! romney's interior mods are just crazily stunning! Props for both cars!
Initially, REVO didn't even have the file for my ECU code available on their servers. After emails and phone calls exchanged, and the file is ready within a few days after Christmas. Kudos!
I felt the power instantly; the torque pushes you to the back of the seat. The power band is just comparable to APR; if not, greater. To each and their own (in preferences). I'm more of a torque person when it comes to performance. I mean I rode in APR Stage 1 flashed [TSI] vehicles before, previous experience felt the torque didn't pushed me back as much. Maybe due to different seat material....? Again, it's solely my personal opinions. I just decided to go with REVO Technik. Don't bash me, CC U L8TR
I even had my friend rode with me, and his initial reaction was "eff you" lol. That is because he also believes REVO tune produces more torque. He also stated it felt more power than his APR stage 2 GTI...now that statement for me is kinda hard to believe.
Pretty much my car is still stock, stage 1 is what I got so far. I will add a filter soon. For now, I'll drive it for a little while for further adaptation of the mapping. I took the advantage of the REVO sales, 31st is the last day. Eurocode Tuning has already submitted the log to REVO. The SPS switcher will arrive soon.
Again, it is solely my own experience. Definitely REVO ftw! That doesn't mean I don't like APR!
Edit: in terms of MPG, it's pretty much consistent. in the low 30s to mid 30s, that's if smooth sailing, no traffic. ~40 mile-trip back home.

this is my first vw, i came from a jdm world but i did manage to get the revo tune stage 1 at waterfest last year and compared to my last car, 2000 eclipse gt v6 supercharged i think it is pretty awesome.
my friend had a 2011 gti and he had apr stage 1 and i think revo is a more agressive tune.
