Check out the Burger Tuning JB1 piggyback unit as well, it's a bit more effective/safer than the Neuspeed !!!

Totally understand this is more effective than the Neuspeed module as you can control more functionality but how is this unit "safer"?

Not here to start a pissing war, but curious as to why you think this unit is not "safe"?

from my understanding the Neuspeed module does not directly control the fuel trims as the JB1 does.
Neuspeed waits for the air/fuel ratio (thru the cars ECU) to go lean before it begins to add fuel, were as the JB1 actually regulates the fuel rail pressure and alleviates what I feel is a shortcoming of the NPM.
IMO piggybacks are somewhat of a gamble in and of themselves compared to an actual tune, so this makes the JB1 a safer choice, and the product I will most likely choose in the future !!!
Besides, the customer service and product development/support from George of Burger Tuning is second to none.

The burger tuning piggy looks like the one. Hopefully it supports the 17'
I agree Vasteve20, going to pull the trigger on a JB1 for my '16 in the near future.
From what I have read on the forums I believe both the JB1 and the JB4 can be installed on a 2017 S3/Golf R.
They are ECU (engine horsepower specific) and not year specific, until you get to different generations.
See the link below:

Good Luck.

Bought a JB1 last month and haven't looked back at all.

Love it!
How noticeable is this option? After reading the insanely long vwvortex thread, seems like a solid addition. Honestly I'd like to just go with an APR reflash, but of course 799 + instant void of the warranty = find another option. I like that you have a bit of control of control and the testing on blended pump gas and ethanol (E35). With an E85 pump near by and my previous car running exclusively on e, It makes playing with a blend tempting.
