    Available tunes?

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    2018 tuned S3's report in. What's available currently? My first choice is for sure UM, but I contacted them today and theirs won't be ready for another month or so and I'm really starting to get the itch. Just curious what my options are currently since I haven't had a chance to check. I'd like to wait for UM, but it's going to be tough.

    Oh I'm having fun alright. What really got me going was I roll raced what looked to be a brand new Mustang GT last night and he could barely pull on me all the way to 140mph. Afterwards I kept thinking "Man, that was closer than I thought it would be...if only I had a tune."

    Any issues? How often have they updated the tunes and when they do update, how are you notified?

    I dont have any issues....

    UM seems to let the tuner who installed the tune deal with updates...which seem to be rare....

    I had a Stage 3 full bolt-on flex fuel STi prior to my S3, which was fun. I can only imagine the S3 will be more fun.

    Considering the garbage website that UM has with their permanent: "oops sorry we are working" and the traffic cone displayed I would definitely avoid them. They had plenty of time to filthier website and the topic has been brought up not just by me but by others. it is discouraging and deterring to try to navigate on a website that still has errors.

    In the year 2018 you can have a kid build you a website. For that reason I skipped UM. On a different note, I had APR and it made my S3 fast, I never had any hiccups with the une.

    Agreed. I've only heard good things about UM. And I've read more than a few instances on various forums where their tunes completely resolved issues with other tunes, APR included.

    Is UM the only one for 2018? Was thinking Eurodyne with their maestro so in the future I could go stage 3.

    Edit with another question:

    Been looking at Stage 1 (93 octane) tunes. Does anyone knows if there are any tunes that reset the reflash counter? I know Unitronic doesn't.
