I've read all of the Tune threads on this forum. Looking for clarification/ guidance. The warranty is 4-year/50,000-miles. I sometimes see 2 - 3 year old cars opting for tunes. (?)

The only thing I can assume is that these cars have over 50,000 miles, and therefore, out-of-warranty. Am I missing something? In other words, if your car is still under warranty, and you install a tune, is the warranty voided? Thanks much.

If there is a warranty related issue that can be associated (probably anything drive-train related) with having a tune, then yes, you will likely be denied warranty coverage. APR has a new warranty umbrella coverage for their tune (akin to what Dinan had/has with BMW). Allegedly it steps in for the remainder of the factory warranty-but there are exclusions. See their website.

Thanks, and will do.

I think I read the other day that Cobb updated their 718 S tune? Aren't the numbers pretty much the same as APR now?
Yes I believe so and I’m not near apr tuners and the Cobb solution in a box is brilliant.

It’s ordered so waiting a week for delivery

Are you talking about the Cobb v200 tune? Or is there something newer?

The dynos for the V200 tune on the Cobb website look a few steps behind the APR tune dynos. It would be great to dyno both on the same car.

dkmajm, are you going to dyno yours? I look forward to your review on an Australian spec car. Any chance you could find a private road to do 100-200kph runs before/after?

I have access to a dyno and I have APR dealers near me that offer the 30 money back. If I could "borrow" a Cobb, I might be able to dyno my car stock, Cobb and APR. If Cobb can get within a few % of APR or better, I would go the Cobb. If not, I would go the APR.

I’m going with APR. I’m not doing their plus program since I like to mod other things on the car and I also track my car. Both of which are exclusions in their “plus” warranty program.

No plans to dyno, and in the nanny states of Australia I unfortunately have no access to private roads! Will post a report of the process and the results arrives this Friday!

So. You got the Cobb tune. What do you think? 1000 bucks. Worth it?

The real world improvements are certainly noticeable. The power is definitely upped, car more driveable and urgent. The power increase definitely doesn’t make the car scary, just a nice solid increase in oomph, I’m happy with it and will investigate the pdk remap before years end. Is it worth the money, well that is the $2100 Australian question. But at the end of the day you get usable improvement that’s hard to get any other way!...
