Just have to contact them and see what they ask in order to offer a group rate. Usually it's at least 10 confirmed orders.

Mattleo, I had an AFC in my 300ZX but not in the A4. Unless you boost or spray, there's not much you can do for power on a 2.8, but I liked the seat of the pants feel of the ST chip. For the AFC, it'll work fine but just like with the DSM, you need to have some real monitors in place when you mess with the mixtures or you'll grenade the engine. About all I'd do with it would be to lean it a little between 2700-3200RPM (typical highway cruising range) and hook up the monitoring capabilities for the MAF etc.

well, i emailed them. Hopefully will hear back soon. SO. Whos interested?? Im assuming the group buy has to be for the same product, so if this goes through, it will be for the 30v 2.8 power chip. once i hear back from them, if you're interested in a group buy, please message me so i can compile a list. I will let you all know when i find out anything else.

I just had a stage 2 chip put in my 1.8t today at speed tuning. I just bought the car about a month ago for a comfortable sedan for Gould weather driving. I called Oliver yesterday and he said he could so it today. Once I found the shop, 45 minutes later and I was out the door. Given the only other mod is a k&n replacement filter, the car is like a totally different machine. Mid range power and torque is great. I have driven cars with APR chips and speed tune is just as good. I mean I haven't put it on a dyno yet or made any runs (gonna give it 300miles) but it is the best $199 I.ever spent. Customer service is great and Oliver is super helpful!

I also have this chip in my 1.8. Noticeable gains and well worth the money.

Although I only peak at around 10-12 PSI it was still worth it and I don't think that's the fault of the chip anyways. Either my turbo is going (which I don't think) or I have a boost leak.

im a newbie to the chip thing, having had a 78 911 sc for my last ride before getting my '12 Audi tt quattro.
I' ve been advised to get an apr chip waiting for a sale event. Also looked into Race Chip .... i wonder what does chipping- stage one tune do to wear and tear, and fuel mileage?the car just turned 80k miles, I'm not unhappy with car power now at stock...it's fun to drive...am I wasting my time?
