Anyone here ever hear of this company? I was driving down 17th st. in Costa Mesa, CA and I saw four rings, so I stopped in to see if they could give me an estimate on some maintenance work, which they can't, and discovered they were a chip tuner only company. They said for about $490ish they'd chip the 1.8t and its such a great chip, blah, blah, blah.

I haven't seen anyone on here mention these guys, so have any of you even heard of them before? It looked like they dealt with BMW's, BENZ's, Audis, Porsches.

you can get chipped by GIAC for $395 and it's tried and true.

oh i think i know what shop you're talking about. I've taken the passat out there when we lived in orange county.

Yea, I don't plan on getting chipped from them. I'm just curious if anyone has heard of them or used their chip before.

if you're by there again, or have the number.. ask them how long they've been in business.

i'm curious if they're doing well enough to just do ecu upgrades or if they're new with very, very high expectations.
