This was going to be my follow up question, have you been using fuelly or anything to log gas mileage that I can see the difference or do you have a rough idea of what you were getting before/after?

Are you picking up 93 off 135th and 69 at the BP, as that's the only station I've noticed with it.

No time to track such things for me but I've noticed 2-3 mpg improvement in my mixed driving after the tune. Part of that could be the motor breaking in too. I see 34-37mpg on the highway now and real mpg per tank is 28-29mpg.

Bp at 151st and 69, waterway at 135th and 69, bp stations in lees summit, and bp on SM parkway all have 93 octane

Wonderful! I've been tracking mine since day 1 (habit that came from the TDI before it) so adding some mileage would be a nice perk with the fun factor! I got 33.4mpg on my most recent fillup with mixed driving so this is exciting for me!

Wow! I was excited with 29mpg on a tank haha, but I push it hard periodically. The highway mpg is outstanding now though even at 74mph.

I am greatly enjoying my Eurodyne tune. I had VWR coilovers on my mk6 and they were phenomenal. For good performance and reasonable price I'd go koni yellow shocks and h&r springs. I actually like the mk7 suspension though.

Awesome thanks for the info, I see you had the tool to flash the tune, is it anything like the open source tuning for subarus or is it just a file flashed over?

I don't know much about Subie tuning but I believe that ED is different. You have to be connected to ED server via WiFi to access their tune files. There are several options to choose from though based on octane and preference of high torque vs. high hp tunes. I have the cable but I'm fairly certain that I can tune other cars if I (they) pay for more "credits" to download a tune onto another car. As far as I know though the 2016 ECU have new encryption that has still not been defeated...so you may be waiting awhile longer before you can tune via the OBD2 port. The 2015 models can be tuned via the port up to a certain VIN so apparently I lucked out with getting a fairly early production mode. My car was build in 10/2014.
