View Full Version : UpGrading my ecu in my 2010 a5

03-30-2013, 12:14 PM
hey everyone,
i have recently bought my first audi. I purchased a 2010 A5 with only 10,000 miles on it. I'm looking into upgrading my ECU but I'm afraid of voiding my warranty. i called audi and talked to them and they said if i was to put in an APR software upgrade that it would void. So of course they tried telling me how if i was to get a stasis ecu the car would still being under warranty and blah blah blah.. sounds awesome... then they tell me it cost 1600 dollars.WTF! Thats a thousand dollars more then the apr.. so my questions are A) WHICH brand should i go with and is there any difference in the two. B) what are common problems after upgrading the ecu. C) if i was to do the apr upgrade is there a way to hide it when i go into the dealership for maintenance?

Thanks Nick

I would wait a year when your 4 year/50k whichever comes first warranty is up. Then get the APR tune
