    I did a search but a lot of the threads were old... Does anyone have the APR flash/for how long and any problems? If my car were flashed (the APR tune) would my warranty be automatically void? Also APR offers the security lockout option where you need a password to access the flash, otherwise...

    That sounded more funny in my mind. But was amusing this evening while sitting at a stop light and watching its reflection in the driver's window. :whistle:

    Does anyone know if the firmware flash mentioned here is only applicable to 2001 or does it also cover 2001.5? I'm having similiar issues to nearly everyone in that thread. Thanks in advance!

    My P0421 and P0431 codes now come back within a day or two after clearing them so I guess it's time to finally do something about it, be that a reflash or new cats. The latter is distinctly possible, even likely, as I have 162K miles on the clock now. On the other hand, the car has otherwise ran...

    So either i send my ECU from NY to CA to be reprogrammed by Neuspeed (taking 3-4 days and $400) or I drive 3 hours into PA to do the new OptiCan programmer from Strictly Foreign Auto (the closest dealer to me) and get it done the same day. I assume using the same Neuspeed software and price...

    I have a 1997 Passat GLX vr6. The past two mornings right after I've started my drive to work, my headlights will flash on and off a couple times in unison with the interior ABS/Brake light. :icon_eek: I also hear a light clicking from either the headlight switch or possibly fuse box area...
