    Hey, all! New guy here. I have a 2014 1.8t SE, A/T. I've had it for about 3 years now, and I'm about to hit the 130k mark. I've been a mechanic for about 7 years now, but I'm still new to the Euro scene. What really sucks is that there's no VW "clubs" out here (Vegas) so I'm forced to get all my...

    We have an '04 1.8T with about 122k miles. Curious if someone could suggest a list of items that might need to be replaced at this point to refresh and upgrade the suspension/ride. Can I get away with just putting in a set of new struts? I'd love to stiffen up the ride if possible, it's got a...

    I have a 2001.5 B5.5 with the 1.8T at 167k miles, what should I upgrade before doing an APR Stage 1 Tune?
  8. Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    I am considering getting the APR Stage I upgrade for my 2017 Passat. I've seen on their website that there is an OBD II dongle that will allow bluetooth connectivity so you can use an Android app to change settings instead of using the stalk. The dongle is $199!!!! So, my question is whether...

    I need some real experience with this one... I've searched high and low on model forums and AudiZine. Can't come up with anybody that has the same issue. APR Tune shuts off after about 7 minutes of driving. Normally I drive until the car is warm, reset the program while driving, then next...

    So I finally broke down and bought the apr tune for the passat. It is an 03 1.8t And runs like an ape with this chip on it way better. The main concern I have comes with the rumors of the coil packs going out, and this leads me to my only complaint the turbo lag between the time I push on...

    TDI ECU Tunes..? I am hoping to collect thoughts on who is the better company to go with for a Stage 1 ECU Tune/flash? I've heard of APR and Unitronic are there any other guys I may not of heard of? I have a 2014 Passat TDI SE, and I have the Ad-Blu. Thanks.

    Killed the Unitronics Stage 3 ECU, they don't sell anything that old anymore. I tried United Motorsport and either they are either really busy or there customer service is terrible. Took 7 days for an email back with no really info... Anyone know of a good tune for AEB 557P 2871r tune?
