That said, Eurotek Tuning already completed its first DSG Tune earlier this morning. As soon as our client saw the the APR announcement, he called us right away and set up an appointment to get upgrade within the morning. The performance gains were noticeable from the get go, experiencing firsthand the improvements in shifting. Here's what our client, D. Kritz, had to say about the tune on our Facebook page:
"Leo just put the tune on my GTI this morning. If you are equipped with a DSG transmission, this is a must buy!! Completely transforms the vehicle's drive characteristics. Faster shifts, more responsive D and S mode. Car now seems to respond to how you push your car. The harder I get on it, the faster and more aggressive it becomes. Taking it easy on the throttle, it will still shift at the same rate but butter smooth."
Many enthusiasts have been waiting for these features to be available and we're excited be at your service. So if you're in the Las Vegas area, stop by our shop and be among the first to get your DSG Tune or call now to set up an appointment or ask for more details.
