Hi folks,

Well, the A4 is gone.  Replaced it with a '07 VW GTI DSG.  Bittersweet 
in the end, but the A4 was needing a lot of work with 156K on the clock 
and I didn't trust the transmission to go another 100K miles, so I 
traded it in.

Which means... I have the chipped ECU from the A4 for sale.  It has an 
APR EMCS unit installed with programs loaded for "Chipped (91 Octane)", 
"Stock", and "100 Octane" as well as the "flip-switch" 
(cockpit-installed pushbutton switch) which lets you switch back and 
forth between the 3 programs.  I also have the flash programmer for it 
here somewhere although at the moment I haven't been able to put my 
hands on it and it may be a while before I can.

The ECU is coded for a quattro Tip.  The ECU itself can be used with a 
standard trans but different APR programs would have to be flashed, and 
the ECU coding would have to be changed.  The APR software can be 
changed with the flash programmer once I find it, but you will need to 
find someone with a VAG-COM or similar to change the ECU coding.  Would 
be a lot easier if you just had a Quatttro Tip.  Then it is plug and 
play.  :)

Let me know if you know of anyone interested..  With the spare ECU, 3 
programs plus remote switch, and flash programmer I paid over $750 
originally.  Asking $300.
