The battery of my 2012 Passat TDi was dead yesterday. Tried to jump start it, did not work. VW road side assistant came, and also failed to jump start. Then, they towed away the car to the dealership. I know I could just buy a battery and replace it by myself, but I just wanted to make sure...
Haha, that was what I was thinking. But not easy to ask someone who spend $$ just to let us create the image file. Guess we have a very similar "theory!"
If anyone who is confused about what we are talking about, let me try to explain it: someone needs to "take a picture" of original image in...
I doubt it is possible. Or if it is, it is going to be hard.
My guess is when you update the map with the SD card you purchased, system will somehow write an info on that SD (i.e. increase the counter) and therefore it can only update it once. Unless someone is willing to try to record the...
As a scientist, I use metric system everyday. Actually, I find it is easier than Imperial. 0°C means water is becoming ice. 100°C means water is vaporizing. 25°C means room temperature. When in Imperial system, 0°C becomes 32°F, 100°C = 212°F, and 25°C = 77°F. Computers like 0 and 1, I...
According to Vic at APR, "The flash has been released to the public and you guys should be able to get flashed again. Thanks for the patience."

I agree! But since DSG tune will increase torque limit (the CEL codes I have seen many times in previous several flashes), in order to test APR tune, I won't be able to flash DSG at this moment. My goal is to test the APR flash with stock almost everything (no intake, no DSG flash).
Here is a newest update (beta V1.3) of the flash:
1) No more CEL codes
2) Speed limit is about 122~123mph
3) Much better response than stock ECU
4) Seems like transmision cannot keep up with the APR ECU flash, hesitation was noticed when suddenly speeding up.
The beta is not released to...
