    Not sure whom the vehicle’s owner is. Most photos are provided by photographers we work with.

    There’s not currently anything in the works for that vehicle but it’s a possibility. If support is released, it’ll be a long ways down the road.

    No ETA for Volkswagen Accesstuner at this time. I imagine once we have completed some other projects we will be able to focus on it and get it out the door relatively quickly.

    Hello,

    We may eventually release an Accessport for that vehicle but it would be a long way down the road.

    Hi there! We do plan to offer DSG flashing for the Mk6 and MK7 GTI, unfortunately we do not have an accurate time frame for that quite yet.

Hello

I would like to know why if the webpage says that the support is available for GTI 2015 & 2016, then why if we already reach to get your support response is that is not in your list but it will be until toward the end of Q3, meaning September ??? please clarify what do you mean by saying SUPPORT NOW AVAILABLE, I would appreciate your prompt response as I have delayed the custom tune because of you.

    Noel,

    Our Mk7 VW GTI support is currently available for all current USDM vehicles. Are you looking for support for a non-USDM vehicle? If so, it may be a while before that is available.

      Hello Marshall

      Any update after your reply ? “Our Mk7 VW GTI support is currently available for all current USDM vehicles. Are you looking for support for a non-USDM vehicle? If so, it may be a while before that is available” the problem that I have is that the tuner cannot connect the ecu to make the custom tune, i bought it with Freektune so I will appreciate your update I have been waiting since May.

        Hey Noel, I assume you’re referring to international vehicle support. We do have a project in the works to add support for other markets however at this time I do not have an accurate ETA.

I just recieved a K&N filter as a gift and was wondering if I can use that filter for a stage 1 tune or is there a difference between the cobb drop in filter offered in your “stage1” package and the K&N?

    Marshall on May 30, 2017 says:

    Hey Larry! You can absolutely use your K&N Filter. Luckily the Mk7 GTI is load based and does not rely on MAF sensor calibrations to calculate airflow. This means that intakes are, for the most part, interchangeable.

I have two questions, the first is it works WM models? If so, is it possible that it can be used on other platforms of the VAG group? Like AUDI S3, SEAT Leon Cupra, I understand that these models share platforms, powertrain and ECU.
Here in Mexico are very popular the Seat Leon Cupra and would be good option of tuning the AccessPort.

    Hi Javier! Our Mk7 GTI support is currently only available for USDM vehicles, we do plan to offer support for additional markets in the future. While many cars within VAG utilize the same powertrain and even very similar ECUs they do have different ROM versions which we do not currently support. If we see demand for any of those vehicles it may be something we look into.

    No update as of yet. Our VW team has a few large projects in the pipeline that will hopefully be wrapping up near the end of this year. We may be able to look into additional vehicle support at that time.
