Alright, well thank you for that info. I was hoping to be able to just swap out the hardware ECU unit itself with the stock one if I had to go out to the dealer for service. I did read through APR's site, and it looked like you got the actual hardware ECU unit when you purchase it for $600... so what do you get when you buy it off their website? :iono:
that's for previous gen's, not the mkv. you could buy an extra ecu, but don't forget that the ecu has to be coded by the dealer thru the geko system because the ecu contains your VIN #. it could be done, but it's gonna cost you a lot more than $600, assuming you buy a new ecu.
