    mk7.5 GTI Autobahn had windshield replaced. Assist systems inoperative.

    The windshield in my 2018 GTI Autobahn was cracked and replaced. My insurance would not pay for OEM replacement. The glass shop sent a company that recalibrates the camera, but system failed multiple attempts. When GTI was new, my VW dealer installed VW sport lowering springs and aligned and...

    Thanks. It seems to be working normally now. I will try a reset if it happens again.

    infotainment screen black on my Mk7.5 GTI Autobahn

    Yesterday my screen just went black while out driving. I still had radio (SiriusXM) sound and I could control volume. I ran thru pushing most of the buttons and nothing changed the black screen, including turning the unit off and back on. (At the time I did not know about holding for a 10-second...

    Latest “Disable Auto Stop/Start” Thread

    I used Carista to turn it off on my 2018 GTI. Worked great. The Start-Stop System was disabled no matter what you did with the button. I set it back to normal operation with Carista. The update re-flash of my APR Plus tune I had done yesterday reversed the operation. The Car starts with it...

    New APR Intake System for Only $189.95!

    My comment was not "cut and paste". I related my own experience with LS motors. Like I said, I do not know how VW determines IAT but wanted to see if IAT values that did not lag actual IAT by seconds were needed in VW motors.

    New APR Intake System for Only $189.95!

    My experience comes more from the LS world but I wanted to mention something we found was significant in our applications. The LS MAF have a temp sensors to measure IAT. The sensing element is a thermistor. Thermistors have a "Thermal Time Constant" defined as "The time required for a thermistor...

    APR Plus

    The drive home was uneventful. Car ran just about like prior to flash update to my APR Plus tune (I got the right name now) but some jerkiness I had in DSG Sport mode at low speeds and throttle positions seems to be gone. I also noticed that the boost gauge went into the 40s where before I think...

    APR Plus

    Ok. The picture is getting more clear now. Nomenclature has changed over the past several years. One must be aware of the questions to ask to get the right answers. LOL. You are correct. My tune is now called APR Plus. I can use 87 octane but 91 can provide slightly better performance in higher...

    APR Plus

    I have the DSG APR tune. It was done at the same time as the Stage 1+ tune was done. According to APR my DSG tune is current. APR tech support said the low vs high torque is not an issue for me as it is primarily to save stock manual transmission clutch from damage with their normal (high...

    APR Plus

    Just got off the phone with APR Tech Support and asked them more detailed questions about my tune. I have "Stage 1+". They said it is a "totally different beast" than the "APR Plus". My re-flash will be the updated version of my Stage 1+ tune. My tune is probably 91 octane (my dealer will know...

    APR Plus

    Did not know this breakdown. I know mine was Stage 1 + and I know it was not 87 octane. At the time I was told it was 292 HP. If the current APR PLUS offering is a step back I will skip updating.

    APR Plus

    Did not mean to mislead. When I had it done in 2018, IIIRC, APR called it Stage 1+. It was the only option if you wanted to get the APR replacement powertrain warranty. Stage 1+ was one offering out of several they sold, i.e., Stage 1, Stage 2, etc. I see now they just call it APR Plus. When I...

    APR Plus

    Because of elevated IAT? Northern Florida, BTW.

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    Sorry to hear that. Mine was just about 10 min total for the turbo inlet pipe.

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    I put my SAI filter under the airbox. too. I added the APR Turbo inlet pipe at the same time. A couple of very easy installations.

    APR Plus

    I have an appointment tomorrow to get the S1+ tune flashed with the updated tune. My DSG tune is current. I think the S1+ is a 91 tune though it might be 93. We have 93 here everywhere. If it is 91, I might have them flash the 93. Not sure about it. I always use 93 anyway. I have not seen 91...

    APR Plus

    I have the APR Stage 1+ & DSG tune in my 2018 GTI Autobahn. Installed with a few hundred miles on it. Now has over 21k miles. I love the transformation in power and drivability. Never had any issues. Reading this thread reminds me to check to see if APR has refined the tune since 2018 and if I...

    BFI motor/trans mounts + Powerflex Hybrid+ ECS Tuning Pendulum Arm = NVH heaven

    I had a new Powerflex hybrid to use but was able to work the one I had been using for 2 years out of the subframe without much difficulty. Once out, it would have been just as easy to trim it as it was the new one I used. Replacing the Roc-euro with the ECS Tuning pendulum gave me more piece of...
