Thinking about getting the APR tune good for 379 ft-lbs of torque and 354 horsepower.

Any information on the tune? I see the HP and TQ but is anybody running it? That sounds exactly what I need ;)

I went to the APR site and it looks really promising. It would be awesome if someone on here already had it.

Today, my dealer told me they will provide an APR tune for $1.1k that will boost the output to 397 h.p. and 358(?) ft.lbs. This has me thinking alot. This will give it near RS3 power! Just might scare the beejeezus out of me. It ain't slow stock.

I wish my dealer would do this. They'll honor any warranty issues too?

In a word, yes. There are some details, but warranty repairs will be covered at least by this dealer.

Just got the APR Stage 1 ECU Tune for my 2018 Audi S3. (High Torque version) Huge difference, but have kept it light on the gas pedal since, due to APR not having the TCU Tune available for my car yet since it is so new. They have DQ250S S Tronic available, but I need the newer APR D2381. So apparently the ECU upgrade can cause some clutch slippage if not done with the TCU as well. No ETA on the TCU - there working on it I was told, so I check there website daily for the new update. https://www.goapr.com/products/index.php?v=A3&vg=3 My S3 was fast, but very noticable difference with the ECU Tune. Definitely pleased with the upgrade. Hopefully the TCU Tune will come very soon.

APR Local shop : ECU Tune $859, and TCU Tune $760
