Of course, we typically charge 100 for re-tuning and for any major accidents/vehicle replacements we address it on a case by case basis.

Have you tuned any of the emissions repaired Q5 TDI’s yet? The emissions repair is killing the fuel economy and I know some people wanting a tune.

Yes we've been tuning a ton of them and started doing the 3Ls the week the update was out.

Can the FlashZilla V3 be used on a 2014 3.0L Q7 TDI? It appears it can, but I can't tell on your site.

Also, if I buy the FlashZilla and Tune from one of your US dealers, how does the upload procedure work?

Does the FlashZilla come with the tune pre-installed?

If I need to take it back to for "service" can I put the "stock" tune back in place?

Is the "stock" tune stored the "updated" version from post-fix/recall?

I know it is a lot of questions, thanks for your time.

Yes it works and functions as advertised, so it does not come pre-loaded. The first thing you would need to do is read the stock file on the vehicle and then make up a file accordingly, so both are saved. Files are sent via email and loaded through the menu on the device.

Please email us directly if you have any questions since this isn't the place for sales.

Maybe I can explain the procedure a bit better. Copying the OEM tune to the Flashzilla takes less than one minute.

1.) You plug the Flashzilla into your OBD II port
2.) Follow the instructions to download your original tune into the Flashzilla
3.) Disconnect the Flashzilla
4.) Take the Flashzilla and connect to your PC computer
5.) Make a folder and name it Malone tune.
6.) Save the file from the Flashzilla to this folder
7.) Email this file to Malone

Loading the new TUNE which comes by email

1.) Copy the new tune to the Flashzilla
2.) Plug Flashzilla into OBD II port and follow directions.

You should have a battery charger connected for this, it may take some time.
Everything except the ignition should be off for this procedure.

I can’t get the flashvilla to read the new stock tune on my Q5. It states that the calibration file isn’t found. Mine had the JR Auto Tuning file, but my wife’s has always been stock and she wants it tuned. They’re both the same year and model so I’m assuming that they have the same OEM file now.

I'm not that knowledgeable about this, but my guess is that your Flashzilla has the "Tuned file" from your car in the system and won't let you read another OEM file.
Each ECU has its own identity, ie serial number.

The flashzilla was erased so it could read the new file, but the new file isn’t in the database yet.

Does the Malone tune help to get back some of the Lost fuel economy after getting the emissions fix done?
I'm wanting to get the wife a Q5 however getting the lost fuel economy back is extremely important.

Yes we alter the timing, feel free to shoot us an email and I'll send you some driving logs of before/after fix and how the tune affects that. I'll be making up an article at some point but have 20hrs of data logs to sift through.

This file was available as of Monday with Malone. Maybe not through your respective tuner yet as we're the ones building the database, the data is shared through alientech so other tuners benefit from our work and vice versa.

So could I do steps 1 - 6,
Get the emissions fix
Plug Flashzilla into the OBD II download and restore stock tune and get my mpg's back?
