Just don't take pictures that show your VIN or license plate, otherwise KERMA might get upset.
Contraire, I'll be the one laughing and saying "I told you so" :rolleyes:

If the state technicians know what the "upgraded" parts look like, someone may need to start producing "stealth" parts again...
Glad our inspection stations' attitudes are "We frankly don't give a $#!t.

Lucky you - my average is 36-40 overall now. Then again, I'm also at Stage 3.

So now we're holding the tuners responsible really ??? What about personal accountability huh ?
Tuners, no. But Kerma seems to have a real smart@ss attitude. I'm amazed he even sells tunes and then spits in the faces of those who have a tune.

So what you're saying, is that those who use drugs should be held accountable, but not drug dealers, right?

+100. It couldn't be better said.

On another note - is 0-60 an accurate measure compared to quarter miles? Used the stopwatch feature in PolarFIS a month or so ago. Got 0-60 in S mode in 7.9, and manually shifting, 8.5. I forgot if that was before or after I upgraded to the 3.5.

I was wondering if you still have your car and how it (namely the tranny) I holding up after all these years and I'm sure, often spirited drives. I have a buddy with and off-road TDI (Buzzken + Malone stage 2 and DSG tune) that is thinking about doing one of the Hybrid CR140 from XMan, CP3 and Malone stage 3 (upgrade from stage 2).

I wanted to make sure he's not asking for trouble with the DSG and stage 3 as I thought it was better suited for higher torque and tunes.

The car was bought back by VW in 2017. I had about 70k of punishing miles on it. I had the DSG flash done early on. I had no major issues with the DSG or anything else. Just curious why you wouldn't run a cr170 or hybrid cr170? I would definitely put in a S3 IC. If not you might have trouble with your EGR's. GL

Thanks for the response! Going this route https://www.xmanturbos.com/product-page/2-0tdi-cr140-cjaa-cbea-cbab-bv43-52mm-billet-wheel-hybrid as it's said to bring in boost earlier and better than the CR170 and give a bit wider power band. I will mention the IC to him and will ask about EGT max ranges to keep eyes one. I don't think he has anything to monitor but I will recommend at min, a Scangauge II.

I sold my 2010 in January. Only problems I had were that the DSG sometimes had problems going into reverse. Usually turning the car off and back on again would fix it, and I'd get a code in VCDS mentioning the transmission mechatronics.

Mine also had a CP3, S3 intercooler, and the CR170. Actually, that's what my 2013 has on it (moved over from the 2010), but that's different, since I just had to put on a beefier dual mass flywheel/clutch that I got from darkside.

Keep in mind that I sold the car with just barely under 251K, and also did a lot of heavy towing with the same car (heavy towing being 2-3K, with the highest at 4800 to bring home a pallet of cement, when the truck took a $#it).
