Wow, I know a lot of people on here stand by Uni and say it's the cream of the crop, but I had no idea there was THAT much of a difference between Uni and APR, all I can say is, wow, after getting taking my fast out for a drive, post-tune, I was blown away.

So much more power and much more balanced than the APR stg 1 tune I had on my MKV, plus(although my MKV had the FSI engine, so that could be a factor too)

And going from stage 1 to stage 1+ only cost an additional $50(not bad for 15 additional horses bringing the numbers from 245 to 260).

I've totally become a Unitronic fanboy, their product rules.

Fellow fanboy checking in. I haven't had the pleasure of comparing the two but you confirm a lot of what I had read pre my Uni tune.
Just you wait... it gets even stronger!
Congrats!

...yet another drunk post.

I've been thinking about getting my car flashed FROM APR to Unitronic. I'm getting a full Turbo-Back Exhaust here shortly and I'm going from APR stage 1 to 2 but I want to get stage 1 APR to Uni stage 2. HOWEVER, the closest Uni dealer is like 135 miles from me, while APR is 55. Should I make the journey?

Email uni. I bet you could just buy a uni connect and flash it yourself. Since it's already been tuned, I would imagine you don't have to pull the ecu to go from APR to Uni.

Awh man, that'd be so sweet if I could do that. I wouldn't have to leave the driveway! I emailed them this morning to try and see if there was a closer Unitronic dealer, because when I hit "Locate a Dealer" on their site it told me the closest one was in Alabama and then it gave me directions to Washington :(. I live in Georgia by the way and I'm going to be installing the exhaust myself, so after I install it'd be perfect to just UniConnect right then and there! :D

The guy before me Tuned to APR, and it seems like every guy with a mk4 GTI in our area tuned to APR because my 3 others friends have been tuned to APR by previous owners.

I have been wanting to switch to UNI once I get my Exhaust and a couple other supporting mods for Stage2 Uni.

Hearing more and more fanboys pop up with great results ensures this will be my next tune.

Great hearing from another guy with APR doing the switch!

Good luck and congrats!
