Those of you that have tuned 3.0 TDI which whose tune do you like and why? I don’t drive hard, and like to maximize mpg, but secondarily would like extra hp and tq but not at the expense of spinning the turbo to infinity. Thanks. My new-to-me Q7 3.0 TDI is a 2010. Thanks.

I had my A6 TDI tuned, I also like to drive for economy, but its nice to have the extra power when needed. Fuel mileage increased as well. I've only had the one tune on it, so I cannot comment on whose tune I like and why, but I am very satisfied with the behavior of mine.

Tuned 14 Touareg over here and I absolutely love it.

I also drive for economy mainly but the biggest change was the way the pedal feels when just leaving from a stop. The car doesn’t bog down and it completely eliminated the dead pedal to rocket mode. The ability to get around most anyone anymore was a huge plus for this 5,000lb SUV.

I used Kerma because being in CO, I’ll always have emissions where we live. Highly recommend 👍

I have the darkside tune and they cannot get rid of my o2 sensor code, after multiple revisions. My EGTS get way up to 1600 to 1700F which I feel is way too hot. If you're going to delete I'd suggest Malone and I wish I went that route
