I have a 2009 JSW/TDI/DSG that I want to get flashed.
The details of my ECU are:
Part No SW: 03L 997 016 P HW: 03L 906 022 J
Revision: 12H01--- Serial number: VWX7Z0I124E09H
Dealer says there isn't a file for it yet and it will take several days to get. Truth or Smoke?
I'm at the dealer for the read-out and they say that unless they get the file tomorrow they can't honor the sale price. Any help?
UPDATE: Dealer says my ECU is "odd" and it will need to be removed to FLASH!

I will make an exception on sales pricing for everyone since we have a delay in getting out box codes.
So basically if your ECU is not on the list of those originally available, and you're waiting while we extract and update codes, you'll be able to get sales pricing. We'll probably run this for a couple weeks just for you guys.
I have my sales manager drafting an email to the dealers now. Sometimes dealers don't read the emails, miss them, or the guy flashing the car was not one of the people getting the updates, so if anyone has any trouble getting the sales pricing, at all, just call and ask for our sales manager while you're at the shop and we'll make sure the correct information is communicated to our dealers.
Definitely worth the wait. Had my JSW flashed this afternoon at APR HQ's. Awesome costumer service BTW and the car ran great all the way to Huntsville. I'm very impressed with the outcome.
you can really feel the difference in how much stronger it pulls. I will have to report back as far as mpg's i was in a hurry getting home last night
Holy cow..... this tune is amazing. I actually get some push back into my seat with it now in my A3.... APR tune + HPA DSG tune = Fantastic! It doesn't bog down after a shift like it used to, just shifts and runs smooth. Definitely what the TDI needs I love the ability of switching the programs, so you can do a run in Stock mode, then do it again in the APR tuned mode. Seriously put a smile on my face when I took it out for a drive after getting it. Definitely recommend this to any TDI owner!
I sure do have the HPA DSG tune :-) It took a while but well worth the wait. We *should* have the same revision ECU, but maybe not. That could be why it's delayed for you. I know the installer had to remove my ECU to load the software back in as well. So make sure you plan for that as it's not the simple DirectPort I was under the impression it would be.
Here's an update on TDI software availability:
When visiting an APR dealer, the dealer will plug into your OBD-II port and load our 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 a the processor revision 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 we actually see them, which means taking a trip to your local APR dealer will speed up the process.
If you have a VAG-COM cable, you can do some homework to find what you have. Just follow this guide:
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, your dealer 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 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 Engineering 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
I hope that clears up any questions, but if not, ask and we'll do our best to answer!
