    My 0.02 -- If youre under warranty or CPO, I'd definitely recommend EPL. Flexibility to flash whenever back to stock and not getting that TD1 flag was a major selling point for me. They are quick to reply and help as well with issues. I went this route and just flashed stage 2 yesterday. Loving every minute of it.

    That being said, if you're out of warranty and dont need a flashing cable or tablet/computer to flash for you, its really about who's local to you with the capabilities. APR, GIAC, EPL, and Unitronic are all very good options. They have minimal differences and all seem to have good service.

    Go with whatever is the most convenient for you. Either option you choose, you wont have any regrets.

    BTW -- Anyone have a connection or hook up on the Q5/SQ5 black trim pieces for the Fog Light Grilles? My SQ is not a black optics and I just installed the BO front grille. I vinyl wrapped the trim pieces myself temporarily but it didnt come out as good as I'd like it to be. Considering dropping off the pieces at a body shop unless I can find a set for a decent price.

    Yeah I was leaning with EPL as I am CPO, but there isn't much data on his tune (as compared to APR) and that kind of puts me off... I wish they had a better deal since they are kind of small and I know I can get big box tune at Waterfest for less money...

    EPL tune is great.
    Fast.
    Smooth.
    Easy install at home.

    You can't beat it.

    My service dept doesn't care that I'm tuned. They love it! They'd rather me tell them so they don't do something that accidentally gets me flagged in the system.
    Told them it's flashable back and forth, and they just told me to make sure it's back to stock on service visits, so if they hook it up I don't get flagged.

    My dealership must be in the minority. But they are extremely tune friendly, and love mods.

    Exact same. Except I got super busy (FDA audit) and forgot to flash to stock. Told her at the visit to keep it off the machine and she laughed and said no problem at all.

    Gotta love the service advisors who enjoy their work.

    Not sure what data you are looking for. Right now for the 4th of July sale we are doing Stage 1 for $849 and $999 shipped for Stage 1 with the cable. Not sure what deal anyone would be doing at waterfest and waiting in line all day. And still having to schedule an appointment and pay to flash back to Stock for service and then do the same thing when you want to go back to tuned.
