      Although Audi could not determine what failed, they replaced the gauge cluster. I'll have more if it fails again, but for now all I can report is everything is back in order.

      And, no, they didn't give me a hard time about the tune.

      Till next time....

      why are people even mentioning the tune? We have had tunes in europe since 2009 and no failures of this kind!

      The most we have had is one persons ECU was bricked after audi attempted to update a s-tronic car that was flashed by MRC.

      Me and 3 of my mates have all got ttrs (they copied me ) and we get no issues at all with out heavily modded cars when we claim warranty work, which is through blatant abuse

      same cars though, so suspecting the tune prematurely should be a non starter.

      I thought you were talking about warranty coverage. AoA is clamping down on dealers apparently.

      From my own experiences, its good to have a chat with the techie who is actually doing the work on your car, if you have obvious mods or want a good job to be done, and consequently making it worth his while

      Totally agree. Been dealing with the same folks since I bought my 2001 TT. It makes a world of difference to befriend the tech staff.

      I can second this as nearly all the cars I've owned have had tunes...GTR, EVO9, 350z, and most recently, an 800hp Shelby Super Snake. So far, I've never run into a problem with a dealer that has diagnosed the tune as the cause of any of the problems I've had with my cars. If AoA starts clamping down, then I'll have to lean in a different direction.

      So far, I don't see this as a problem.

      Cheers to all.

      I am having a very similar gauge cluster problem in my 2013 TTRS detailed here:

      http://forums.fourtitude.com/showthr...7#post81003187

      Basically the gauge cluster starts up slowly and throws a bunch of errors that say "Problem communicating with instrument cluster" in VAGCOM. If you turn the car over while the cluster is booting, the car shuts right off. If you let the cluster finish booting, the clock is always reset but the car runs OK. Since my car had the APR Stage 2 flash, the dealer insisted I take it back to stock before proceeding. I've done that now so back to the dealer to continue investigation.

      I keep seeing issues with people's cars and all of them have APR tunes. Just an observation.
