Love my Upsolute...but had to wait 2 months to get it. (Larry leaving, training the new guy to do it). I had my doubts, but it made a huge difference. I definatly wouldn't go back...

i'd go garrett chip from matrix if i were you...not just because that's what i did...but i'm been overall really satisfied with GIAC...wasn't happy with the apr i had on my 01 gti...and matrix's customer service kicks arse...haven't dealt with upsolute...but everyone i know of that has had upsolute and giac say that giac takes the cake anyday...

Yeah, there are a lot of chips out there. I went with the UP because when you drive a diesel, you have limited options. I prefer someone local to do the install as well, because you can check them out, get to know them, and basically have a lot more confidence in the work they do. That's why I went with the Upsolute over the Wett chip, because I could get it done locally.

Go GIAC!!!
Matrix stands by their work and gives great service!!! May seem like a hastle to mail it to portland but its worth it. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
Bahn Brenner leaves a LOT to be desired and the upsolute chip isnt as good. I swear they only hire the rudest-least knowledgeable high school drop outs they can find. http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif
You've been warned!!

Personally I'd go with a local chip tuner (Matrix). You don't want to get chipped then have your car go into limp mode when you get home...then have to figure out a way to get back to auburn, WA to figure out what is wrong. Go with Matrix since they are closer, so if anything goes wrong, which isn't likely... they will be close to take car of you. Also Upsolute seems to be the cheapest chip, but I have read the most complaints about it. I have been running a GIAC(from Matrx) for 6 months with no problems or surging.

Outta 3 MKIV's I have seen with up. 2 had issues with surging codes. one rails.
The Up chip for TDI rocks!
If you go GIAC, go matrix
APR Stutgart is in lake oswego

it just depends on if you'd rather deal with people with hinged jaws that say "eh?" all the time or with people that smell funny and drink PBR.
