At Midlands BioFuel GTG, installed Malone 1.5 and DSG tune...with stock exhaust. Enjoying it...picked up about 3-4 mpg on big highway (75-80mph) (Columbia, SC -ATL -PCB), in town dropped about the same...cause I can't control my right foot. Excellent pick-up and smooth shifts in town. DSG performs like it should, will stay in gear until you shift, using manual. In regular drive/sport modes the torque comes on really nicely...lots of fun to drive. Checked turbo temps/exhaust/ and DPF function...all working just fine, no excessive temps until regen..gets hot only because it is supposed to. Seeing regen a little more often, but not stocking up soot levels or ash at any greater rate. 9-10ml per 10k miles, not changed a bit from OEM.

Saving the pesos for Rawtek Exhaust, DPF delete, and 2.0/2.5 Malone tune.

Thanks Andrew...this is too good, can't wait for upgrade..

FYI: I am a Malone dealer as well. I have flashed all but one customer stage 2. A couple have seen track days with full emissions equipment and on an extended makeup session one experienced re-gen cycles or possible high EGTs, with that exception both performed flawlessly.

Reviving an old thread maybe, but there still seems to be a lot of interest in a good tune upgrade at least by us recent CPO/post fix owners.

The next and maybe only mod I'm really interested in doing is a tune remap with a few things in mind.

* Switching back to stock (easily/cost effectively and temporarily) is important as I have 2 yrs/unlimited mileage and a lot more emission warrantee I don't want complications with.

* early wear on engine, smog, etc. such as DPF.
does Malone or Kerma (for example) regen better/more efficiently?
mileage and drivability?

Malone stage 2 is great, I would recommend them. Plus if down the road you decide to do delete, it's just a quick retune.

So from what I understand you must buy a programmer (flashzilla) or borrow/pay local shop. Are the tunes a one time?

I went with the flashzilla so I could go back to stock any time I wanted to.
