Maybe it would depend on location but you donít have one so we canít help you. Also, the A7 forum would be useful too?

The 2 most common here I believe are APR and EPL.

APR you need an APR dealer to flash to tuned and back to stock if necessary for warranty work.
EPL you buy a cable and use their flash loader to DIY your flash.

Both offer stage 1 and 2 tunes/pulley assemblies and I know EPL does a stage 2+ with an underdrive crank pulley...not sure about APR.

Gains are arguably about the same and while APR has a nice website and is a large "company", EPL is a no frills shop and both have excellent support on the forums and directly.

Playing with the Torque app and an OBD2 dongle i was able to calibrate my stock "at the wheels" number to about 250hp which correlates to 310hp at the crank. My EPL stage 1 with an intake puts out 300hp at the wheels so somewhere around a 50-60hp increase...very noticeable.

Still not sure if I will ever go stage 2 but more interested in a Tiptronic tune if one ever comes out. APR is supposedly developing one but it has been in the works for quite a while.

This info doesn't help much if the OP lives in Egypt.

Quite the assumption, gastropubs are all over EU and most other first world countries.

Im not going to read the profile of every post or poster that is too naive or lazy to post their location under their logon name so I assume Egypt unless otherwise informed.
