I got a quote today from a local dealer to do a Stage 1 flash for my TB (2.0TSI). The guy I spoke with said that my ECU would not have to be pulled; simple plug into the dataport & flash.
What is bugging me is not the "standard" current non-sale price but the additional $65 "download fee" that the dealer feels he needs to collect to do the flash. My 1s time at this shop. It seems like a local mark-up. In the past, I've bought a Rocketchip flash, an Upsolute flash and an APR flash and I haven't been hit for an additional service charge in any of those sales.
My question is: Is this a normal, standard practice from APR dealers?
Thanks in advance...V
