Thanks and Cheers!!

Hello! Congrats on your GTI, loving mine.. just hit 2400 miles. Also loving the JB4.

As far as I know the JB4 is tied to the vehicle Vin number, if your aquiring a JB4 along with the GTI, you should be good. I believe a JB4 transfer is only a problem when going from one Vin to another.

JB4 is a great start for anyone new to the performance market.. George is great at setting you up through the Maps. Definitely give e30 fuel a try if you have some e85 near you.

Don't believe it's tied to the VIN. For the JB4 + Bluetooth, the original owner just needs to unlink the account on the JB4 app. Don't know if this is something that needs to be done for those who use a laptop+data cable.

For Map6 support, George mentioned that they only do custom map support for new units. If you bought yours used, should utilize the JB4 map 6 thread in this forum.

Regardless of which option you chooss, set aside 1K+ for a clutch replacement in the next year.
I caved and got the APR + Stage 1 Tune last week. I went to Pacific Raceways in Kent on Friday to test the car. Let's just say all that increase in power and stock clutch didn't work very well. Lol. New clutch is definitely my next mod.

Thanks for the replies. Yes the owner has it tied up to the BT on his phone. I will ask him to unlink the account upon title transfer.

Thanks All.

I have done a load of tuning on the JB4 (and Eurodyne, at this point), on various turbos at that. Happy to answer questions if you want to shoot me a PM, or hit me up on FB messenger. I'm in the Woodinville area

I had a 2013 GTI with a Stage 1 APR tune. Had maintenance/service done at Auburn VW with no problems. In fact, Auburn VW is known as an APR "friendly" dealer. They recently took my 2013 model in trade for a new 2018, gave me a good price, and now have it for sale as a "Certified" vehicle. In contrast, another dealer told me I would have to have the tune removed by Achtuning before they would take my trade, supposedly because they could not "Certify" it with the tune in place.
