AUDI A3 Looking into APR....but CLUELESS about CHIPS

Ok after doing some research reading up on performance chips for my A3 I have set myself on concentrating on APR and perhaps going with them for my future chipping. BUT I have no clue what the heck I am reading its not sinking in. Since I am not a big hobby car guy I dont know what the heck I am reading about. The only thing I have heard is that APR is what I should go with on my A3 2.0T and it will

AUDI A3 I 8L ECU chip upgrade to the old model of A3 (up to 2003 i think)

Ok heres the situation first. I currently live in brazil and brazil had a audi factory that was closed in 2006 this factory was producing the old models of a3 (like i said i think this model was discontinued in europe in 2003 but i am not sure) up to 2006. I am bying one of those old-new models A3 18 (125 HP). And to the question Is there any recommendation as to the ecu chip to install in that car 125hp is nice but i wouldnt mind a little performance boost. Thanks in advance

AUDI A3 Torque Steer on Chipped A3...

Once I buy my A3 2.0 my first step will be an APR chip. How bad is torque steer when you chip your 2.0 Thanks

APR has the option of putting the ECU in stock mode. While its stock mode program is not exactly the same bits as the audi OEM tune to my knowledge no one can tellany difference bothperformance wise and measured. If you can see yourself going past Stage 1 (usually used to refer to a setup where the only engine mod is the reflash or chip) APR has other parts i.e. downpipe cat-back exhaust and intercooler which some believe are tuned to its software for a more complete tested package.

AUDI A3 chips

Im new to the forum and new to audi. I recently acquired a 2007 A3 2.0T s-line DSG. Ive had it for about three months and have about 2300 miles on it. Im wondering what the best option for chiping is. Which chip you guys like best or would suggest and if there is any amount of break-in time before I should chip I love this car...the way it handles and the power it has stock. Cant wait to squeeze even more out of it.

My favorite chip is Doritos Seriously though Chef has set up a n00b thread with frequently asked questions. There are links to a couple threads discussing the various chip tunes. httpwww.audiforums.comm_547598tm.htm At 2000 miles you should be out of the break in period however I would suggest waiting until your first oil change at 5000 miles or changing it yourself before chipping (if you do it pre-5k).

AUDI A3 What to do before chipping

Hey guys looking for help on something I saw a while back but havent been able to find again. Ive seen a thread either on this forum or audizine or fourtitude (somewhere) where the question of which chip to install was asked and someone responded with the best answer possible which is a list of bolt on modifications that needed to be done first so the ECU software can be calibrated for the modifications

Thanks BAMF. Ill definitely look at the diverter valve when I cross that road. Im just a little disappointed that the A3 didnt come with LSD stock and Im going to try to have it installed before I get chipped so I can dump the clutch right after 1k miles and put more down without spinning too much. I heard that you can spin the wheels on stock (no chip) a3 pretty easily as it is already. I cant wait

AUDI A3 Need some advice on Paint Chip Repair.

So Ive got some major chipping issues with my 06 A3. Ive tried to get audi to repair these rusted spots but of course they again state that there needs to be perforation. I cant take the fact that it looks like this so Im considering putting out the myself to fix it all and be done with. Can you guys tell me what kind of damage my pockets will be looking at to fix this BEWARE Photo may be disturbing to some viewers.

AUDI A3 chipping questions

I recently purchased my 2007 A3 2.0 w S-line. This is my first audi so I am really a noob to these cars. I have been doing alot of reading about chipping in this forum and I am exited about it. Here in Phoenix we have quite a few places that can do it. I have never been to a shop for this kind of work. What kind of questions do I need to be asking. I hate to sound I like have no clue what I am talking

to ask your chip dealer before purchasing 1) How much do they charge for labor (kind of a joke all they do is hook up to your OBD port and load the software). The software itself should run you about 500 but labor will be an additional cost. 2) How much for additional programs You should really consider getting the stock tune loaded along side your 91 or 93 tune in case you need to go into the audi

In regards to APR they charge the stated price.....no additional labor. The chip for the A3 2.0T is 599 and 149 for an additional program (like stock). Also their R1 DV is 149 installed which is why I said for roughly 900.........the only other thing they will charge is sales tax. If the dealership reflashes your ecu APR will re-install for free and also if they come out with new versions of the software

AUDI A3 CALI Dealer that Will Chip A3

Hi Guys My dealer gave me a card to a tuner but said if ultimately there is damage from the chip its my fault. However he did say if fuel pump goes bad or dv goes bad thats no problem. I heard some dealers do chips on A3 and gaurentee warranty will be intact If this is true is there any such dealer in California I dont care what type of chip it is thanks.

Did you check with Penske audi (West Covina) They do it as part of their STaSIS package but I dont know if theyll do just the chip. [smicon_cheers.gif]

Quote Rusnak in Westlake has a close bond with Neuspeed and will basically look the other way should anything go wrong. But they dont actually Flash themselves. I use these guys too - and they are pretty cool. When you say look the other way I agree thats true about having the chip but should things go wrong its really not up to them. I dont have a lot of faith that audi wouldnt still try to blame

AUDI A3 Review Technine A3 3.2 ECU Chipped Dyno...

Had the opportunity to work with Technine on their latest software with the A3 3.2. Chris and Gary was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend them if anyone is interested in getting their 3.2 chipped. httpwww.technine.caproductsa3.html We tested out 2 different software and I took the first one to the track on Sunday. While the throttle response was faster I didnt feel much of a power

Not to mention the A3 had DSG whichmade it impossible to getnumbers from WOT.

AUDI A3 pulling the chip trigger...

sitting in neuspeed as I type this gittin chipped. Was leaning towards APR but changed my mind. I cant wait to drive....

so...first impression....neuspeed chip is sick. the throttle response is lightning quick and you feel the car pull like crazy. I am a little concerned about my mileage. I went thru just over a quarter tank in about 60 miles. Anyone with chipped A3s have any info about mileage after chipping It could be because I kept punching it to feel the power. My dash was reading pretty steady average of 20 mpg.

Just make sure you have a service advisor that you feel you can trust to discuss this with. I think I just read a service notice sent to audi dealer service centers re how to tell if a car has been chipped. There seems to be some flags and bits they can read that indicate whether it has been chipped or has been chipped before. (I forgot the source but I read this recently and it was a scan of the notice.)

Yes I did take the lazy route - Just didnt find a straightforward this is probably the best chip for the a3 in any of the threads or atleast i didnt see. Thanks for the input ill probably do some more indepth research and pray my stealership isnt about it which chip do you have chef

I recently got my A3 2.0t flashed with GIAC. it makes a world of difference. The downside is your dealer might erase the program or find out you have it chipped if something bad happens and void your warrenty. The plus side is it make the car so fun to drive and I thought it was fun to drive stock. I went to Group5 motorsport in San Diego they have always been nice to me and did a fine job with it. Good luck Dave

Quote ORIGINAL a3_yuppie ...with Revo its a separate device which plugs into the OBDII port. Thats why I went with APR. Chef has one. Go bug him if you ever need to bring your Revoed car into the dealership What Oh yeah I do have the controller and would help you turn it back to stock if you want but you have to come to me. BTW I chipped my car just prior to the 5k mile mark and it has been better since. Im now at 38k miles and the car is running very smooth. Cheers

AUDI A3 Gas Mileage with Chips

With the high and getting higher price of gas I™m considering a chip for the potential gas mileage improvement some claim. Those of you with chips could you please reply with your typical gas mileage both combined and strictly highway when driven ˜reasonably™ Please also note which chip what stage of tune any other engine mods any comments like effect on DSG shifts adjustability and how your dealer

increase is as much for gasoline and most people will tell you they probably get worse mileage after chipping because of the fun not the chip itself. My dealer has not been able to electronically detect my chip they did notice it on the test drive but the tech gave me a nudge nudge wink wink. If the dealer formally discovers the chip the warranty for all effected parts is basically void because audi

Quote ORIGINAL mattrazzo I have APR stage 2 (3 turbo back exhaust) and get 27 mpg at 65-75 mph on highway but usually around 24-25 mpg because I usually drive 70-90 mph. Its through Boston traffic so its a lot of slow and speed up so it kills milage. As to dealer last time I took it in they were going to a flash upgrade for the flapper valve and my tech called me and asked Is that car chipped I sadi yes and he oh ok. I was going to do a service flash but I wont if youre chipped. I asked if I needed the upgrade and he said No. If youre chipped you dont have this issue. So he was cool about it. No issues. Lets be claer. I drive my car for enjoyment not economy so your milage will definately vary if youre going a constant 65 on the highway. What dealership do you goto Im looking for a mod-friendly dealership. I usually take mine to Prime (used to be Clair) audi in Norwood or audi of Nashua.

2.0T- YES get the chip for the 2.0T it is an amazing difference and totally worth the money. Its not like your loosing half your MPG because of this chip. After a week of getting my chip I got around 330 miles on a full tank and I drive pretty hard. I was debating between exhaust and a chip and a friend of mine put it this way. Exhaust is a reward to the people around you who hear it and the chip is a reward to yourself and I couldnt agree with it more. 3.2- If your loaded and you have the money to blow why not but its not something to save for and get because its not going to be a huge performance upgrade. It might get you better gas mileage on the freeway but not in the city. If your looking to get better gas mileage I dont think the chip is the way to go. For performance YES. I know there are many other chips for different cars that do give better gas mileage but unfortunatly I dont think they offer one for the A3.

AUDI A3 I 8L I need a chip tune...

So I ran out to Target to pick up a few odds and ends (read felt like taking the car out to stretch the legs) and as I was coming back home I ended up by this Mk3 GTI.

Well we get to the part that is my favorite leg of the journey home a

Its a tragedy that a car with such a hideous wing is so damn fast. Even with a chip - youll still be staring at the rear end of that thing and watching it fade into the distance. My friend has an M3 and still gets dusted by tuned STIs all the time. Regardless get the chip - youll be amazed at how much kick it will give your A3. And next time the STI rolls up smile and be comforted that at least your car has a classy eye-pleasing body (sans uber-wing).

AUDI A3 I 8L Getting car chipped do I need to change the DV(2008 model)

Hi guys Im getting my car chipped witht he APR program tomorrow and I was wondering if its absolutly necessary to get the DV changed as well. Ive read quite a bit of the post that say yes but I remember like I read a post somewhere which mentioned that the 2008 models have an upgraded DV. I cant seem to find any more information on this and yes I have searched through the forum. Im just wondering if

It is not required to upgrade your DV but is strongly recommended. Eventually the stock diaphragm in theDV will tear once you chip the car I like to think of it as a requirement to replace the DV when chipping a car to avoid issues in the future and dealing with a failed DV. As for the R1 it is designed for the 2.7T in the S4A6. Check out Forge most people on the forum use their DVs. Here is a link to the A3 httpwww.forgemotorsport.comconte...roductFMFSITV

AUDI A3 What effect will a chip have on sport mode

on a DSG Have an 08 A3 S-Line 2.0 DSG. I couldnt wait any longer and have ordered H&R coilovers AWE turbo back GIACreflash and BMC drop in filter. I guess I lose any stock sport settings from the ECU other than manual paddle shifting.Since I dont know what it does I guess it wont matter. Anyone shed light on this Thanks

Every chip tune for the A3 does require access to the car or the ECU. You can go to an authorized dealer and have the software uploaded via OBD port or some tuners will allow you to remove the ECU from the car and mail it to them. Theoretically theres no reason why you couldnt do it yourself with a laptop and USB-to-OBD cable Im sure the reason the tuners wont let you do this is because they know someone would eventually crack the license key and then no one would pay for it.

AUDI A3 No cruise control... which chip

Ok ok... I know its another chipping question but I would like to use APR but I do not have cruise control for switching back to the stock program. Is this a problem Is there something else that could be used Or would another chip be better for me. Please advise.

Thanks that stalk is well hidden. My A3 is but a few days old (to me) and already I want the APR chip I used to run with the miata guys but it is nice to be here now.

AUDI A3 repair paint chip

Hi I just bought a 07 A3 for 2 weeks but unfortunately someone just slammed the door on my car and nowthere isa about 0.5cm x 0.3cmchip on my brand-new car... I did some search... anyone knows if paintscratch httpwww.paintscratch.com is good oris there a better one I havent done any paint job myself before.. should I go to a bodyshop to fix it any suggestion thanks

Ive been pretty protective of my car as well but despite all of my efforts some idiot put a nice long scratch along the passenger side of my 7-month old A3. I did some quick research as well and came across paintscratch.com. Let me know if you think it works as well as they claim. Also on the U.S. TT Auto Club there is another resource mentioned but it seems that the focus is on rock chips on the hood.

AUDI A3 NEW Chip Tuning in DFW area

If your interested in chipping your audi or VW let me know. For the first time you can get O.CT tuning here in Dallas area. Without a doubt the smoothest results out there. Some chip companies push the limits of the car or make it undpredictable to drive not O.CT. And as far as Torque...I have not seen better Torque results from any other tuning company. Just did my 2008 2.0...it is amazing. Your welcome

No problem. Information is what this forum is about but we are very skeptical of a newbie coming on and posting about AWESOME new products. There is no credibility there at all. I would argue that you are either totally excited about your new chip tune and swept by the salesman that hooked you up or you are somehow in a position to obtain gain from people using this product. Personally Ive seen cars with REVO APR GIAC and Neuspeed tuning. Each is a little different and all perform very well and have a very linear power curve with no reported mechanical problems that Im aware. That makes me very skeptical of your initial post. If you want to be part of the community then welcome. Just hang around make some friends post some useful information and your credibility will increase. There is a LOT you can gain from being here since you have a brand new A3. Welcome. Cheers

AUDI A3 Chipping make it un-drivable

I am considering going with an ECU upgrade. I used APR on my 01 A4 1.8T Quattro and never had any issues. My concern is drivability. It seems like an awful lot of torque to put through the front wheels. Even now I peel the tires pulling away from a stop without much trouble. Furthermore if I am rolling along at say 10MPH or so and floor it the traction control flashes all the way until 2nd gear as

you just need to chill out when in first gear. but my a3 was like that stock sooooooo just chip it and live good.
