Houston VW owners

Recently moved from Ohio to Houston. Also traded my MK6 for a MK7.

Anyone else around the Houston area? There were a lot of clubs up in Ohio for VW. Haven't seen anything on this forum so figured I'd ask.

I'm from North Houston but I go to school in Dallas. I'd love to meet someone else with a MK7 GTI. I'm also going to be getting an Injen CAI soon and you're welcome to look at it if you please.

I'm in SE houston. Still debating the stage 1 tune... Only place around only does APR so either need to do APR or do the uniconnect unitronic tune. Other options are the JNB4 or the Neuspeed. Guess I'll be researching more during Thanksgiving.

From what I've noticed, Uniconnect is the way to go. APR lost my business with the exhaust thing?

No, its a launch edition so it is as base as it gets. did add the CTS intake about 2 seeks ago though. Feb will bring 19" rims and performance rubber hopefully but as of right now it looks pretty basic

I am waiting on UNI to release the 1.8 tune. the APR strikes me as a bit much for just a tune, more power than i need - UNI seems more within the range i am comfortable with and i like the idea of being able to flash back to stock from my home.

I second that. they should have owned it - apologized and offered full refunds or atleast a heavy discount.

Pretty poorly handled, sad because i was very impressed with the company up until that.

I think I may just do the Neuspeed or JNB4. In terms of exhaust, I'll probably get Magnaflow like I did with my MK6. Especially since I get it at wholesale price.

Did y'all ever meet up? I'm in Bellaire - Black TDI SE 6spd w/lighting. There's not too much you can do to TDI's at the moment since the suspension and engine are different - just vagcom really. I've done seat heater memory, seat belt chime, gauge staging, windows/sunroof via keyfob, turned XDS to strong, enabled some extra lighting functions, and added oil temp to the mfd.

Previous cars: '03 Audi TT 225 Unitronic Stg 2, '03 GTI 1.8T t3/t4 50 trim, '07 2dr GTI pkg. 2 6spd Malone Stg. 2, '09 Jetta TDI 6spd, '12 2dr GTI 6spd APR Stg. 1
