Re: ur opinions on the APR dealer in Dallas, TX (veedubmania)

Hey Veedubmania,
I have heard some horror stories on Autoscope. Check out http://www.vwaddiction.com . Do a search on Autoscope and you can read about one persons experience with them. I want the APR 93 octane program so bad but don't want to mail my ECU in again and I'm afraid of what might happen if I take it to Autoscope.
Anyone else have any personal experiences with Autoscope in Dallas, TX? Maybe it was just an isolated incident that I read about. But the guy was without his car for like a week. (ridiculous when you just want a ECU upgrade)

Re: ur opinions on the APR dealer in Dallas, TX (blackwolf1.8t)

Thanks for the tip blackwolf and whoa..... such an experience would make me think twice before taking the car to Autoscope. here is the other side of the coin, though, I went to their location last week and talked to Nerces, the owner. he was very friendly. he did not know the answers to all my questions so one of his techs (Chris) called me the next day. he sounded a little edgy (maybe just a bad day) but he was supposedly the APR specialist. if I had not talked to Chris, I would have trusted Nerces with the job, but the way Chris came off in the phone conversation cooled my enthusiasm off a bit. thanks again...
more feedback would be greatly appreciated.

from what I heard, I wouldn't bring my car there...go down to Houston, there's supposed to be an excellent APR guy there. Also, the local Upsolute guy is good, and there is now a GIAC dealer local...APR, go to Houston.

Re: ur opinions on the APR dealer in Dallas, TX (mode12)

where is the giac dealer in DFW? is it the kentek guy that's always posting on vdubaddiction?
p.s. the upsolute guy is awesome. i had lots of questions prior to and during the chip installation, and he knew what he was talking about. plus, he chipped my car at his house the day i contacted him about the chip. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: ur opinions on the APR dealer in Dallas, TX (mode12)

wow, i didnt know we had a giac installer right here in the dfw area. if i had known that prior to upsoluting my car, i might have gone with giac instead. but don't they have to ship off your ecu to chip it? i'm not sure if i could have been without my car for more than a day...
