ok im not gonna sit here and rich and moan... i just have a question for you. Ive been wanting to get the chip for my car ever since i bought it.. ive had the car for over a year, and finally kind of have the money for it. I ordered the chip from dubwerks in libertyville illinois.. they said it would be 440... i was pissed becasue i forgot about the install price... i just came to find out that becasue of taxes, its going to end up being over 500.. i only have 400 to spend... what can i do in a situation like this? im only 18, go to school, work, and play sports..

Ummm... don't get chipped until you can afford it? Sucks, I know. But you can't really expect any other solution.

Whore youself out to fat chicks at $100 a pop.


Like Mike said, what do you expect? No ones going to cut you a break just because you don't have the money. Sympathy has no place in economics.

people dont give u stuff for free bro. 500 is a good price with install! i just payed over 800 for my giac hammer file.

If it was me and only had 400 bucks why not go into the classifieds here? APR and GIAC chips go for about that price all the time!

^exactly, usually with a full ECU too, so then you have your stock box and the chipped box, which can be kept as a spare or sold to recoup some of the $$$ you put out.

Isn't someone selling a AEB APR chip for like $125 in the classifieds? I would be all over that if I had an AEB.

I would avoid Dubwerks. I wasn't to keen on work they have done for me before. I miss Moto Persona. They were quality in and out.

yea i know, and i found a giac chip, but i cant afford 2 weeks of downtime because the guy wnats my ecu to send out first, so he doesnt have any downtime, and i take all the downtime waiting 2 weeks for mine to get there, and then for him to send his

If you plan on getting a bigger turbo dont get apr, i made that mistake and am going to yet again buy another chip like giac for my turbo upgrade.

My dumbass didn't know apr didn't offer a k04 flash until a week after I purchased the stage one chip.

if he can barely afford a chip, i don't think hes thinking about a bigger turbo. Just save up a few more dollars and you'll be fine.

DO NOT DEAL WITH DUBWERKS OR HAVE THEM TOUCH YOUR CAR!!!!
please take this information and staple it to your forehead[headbang]

Myself and others have been screwed, ripped off, hassled and ignored by those morons! When it comes to Audi's they have no knowledge of what they are doing. I have NEVER dealt with a shop/company this bad in my life and would not want anyone else to. Their "business ethics" and "customer service" is a pile of shit! If you want examples of why im this furious then you could PM me about it, but please take my word.
I was once your age in high school pulling into their parking lot w/ others NOT realizing how deep of a hole they already dug for us to fall in.

BTW, excluding me, there were 5 A4 owners and 2 S4 owners that I knew at the time that felt the same way about this moronic shop!

The best shop and customer service i dealt with in your area was Automekanika in Spring Grove. Big Ed is a great guy and very helpful. If you need a phone # or directions PM me [up]

does giac still honor the upgrade discount if you bought their file used from someone else?

i believe so, only if the previous owner has the reciept. just to make sure call a GIAC dealer.
