There were only 5,000 to start with, minus probably a couple of hundred that have not survived these last eight years. So we have to share them with others, so that they can find true happiness also.
If you love something, let it go...
I proved you wrong on several levels.
1) I kinda jumped ship, but still own the R32 ship, while I bought a 2012 R... ship...
2) You said I would never buy a turbo, guess what? I got a $34k 2012 .:R which has a "turbo."
3) You say I just window shop, and I am all talk.. Did I mention I now own 2 R's, both black, but one is a 4 door "turbo." Haha...
Pic's to come to drive you into submission, finally.

Easier to make a monthly car payment than it is to be able to drop many thousands at once, cash, on a proper turbo build isn't it.
You should have prioritized and worked towards buying a decent house instead. Living in the ghetto sucks, even with a new car.
I've seen the APR vs UM new R stage 2 dyno results. As expected, UM wins on numbers.. and knowing Jeff's obsession with smooth responsive driveability, you know who I'd get.
No, I am not a UM dealer. I tried flashing customers for c2 a couple times a few years ago.. but it wasn't worth my time or hassle to do so, so I stopped.
BTW- even when I did flash those couple guys, I did so for free. They just paid C2 for the flash.. I just met them on my own time, with my own laptop, because I love hot rodding cars and helping other guys that are into making VW faster..
Oh, and as for proof..it is not up to me to post the results. Ask Jeff.
If you seriously need to ask for me to back up anything I say.. you haven't been paying any attention I'm the 6+ years I have been in the R32 forum.
know what you are talking about. Sorry...
I wasn't asking Jeff, I was asking you to back up your claim, not attacking.
Pretty cool you have flashed for others and for free, I say thanks to those you've help, but I still
would like some kind of proof to those claims. I am thinking Jeff is some kinda black hat tuner lol...
All I know, I have been in 2 versions of 4 bangers APR has tuned, we tune a lot of Audi's at
my dealership, mainly R8's though, but have many happy 2L people, and their tunes were not
only impressive, the before and after difference I have felt, but the tunes were always smooth,
OEM like, and they always delivered some increased butt dyno power.
I am most likely having my Audi dealership send out my ECU to be flashed soon, I get an
employee discount, which I was supposed to find out what that was today, but was too busy to
before flashing, was told the intake and exhuast wont allow for much improvement,
due to restrictions there, and the euro version did not get nailed like we did, again.
i have not looked into much about this car or mods, so little time these days, but those are
concerns brought to my attention by people i know and trust.
I've been thinking about selling my R after 5+ years of ownership. I don't know how some of you made the switch to the new R. I drove it and I felt like I was driving a mini van that happened to be stick. All though I did test drive an e90 m3 and b8 s4 before that. The new R just didn't feel "right". Good luck with the new car. 420+hp apr stage3 would be fun tho ha.
