APR is pleased to announce our world renowned DirectPort Programming (DPP) will be available for nearly all Audi, Volkswagen, Seat, Skoda and other VAG vehicles produced between 2008 to today! Gone are the days where most ECUs need to be removed and opened to install an APR ECU Upgrade. DPP will allow roughly 400 APR dealers across the globe to flash APR ECU Upgrades directly to their clientís MED17.x and EDC17.x ECU over the factory OBD-II diagnostic port with ease. Welcome to a better world of APR ECU tuning. We call it Performance Without Compromise!

Not only is APRís DPP stealthy and less labor intensive, but also allows the release of several highly anticipated APR ECU Upgrades. Customers of the newer flex fuel B8.5 A4 & A5 2.0Ts, various newer 3.0 TDIs and newer TT, CC & Tiguan 2.0Ts will be elated to know APRís ECU Upgrades will be available shortly. Furthermore, with the ability to distribute ECU Upgrades without requiring new flashing devices, APRís Calibration Engineers are now able to work on various TDI and newer gasoline models, such the recently released 1.4 TSI.

APR will debut the new DirectPort Programming at H2O International on the weekend of September 26th. Support through APRís global dealer network will follow starting the week after for applicable platforms. All mentioned previously unsupported ECUs will also be supported at the show*.
