Noticeable increase in power, and also the gas dropping a little quicker. But well worth it. Thanks again, hope to be back in soon.
Well worth it.

MPG's suffered slightly but the power increase is awesome. Probably because I can't keep my foot out of it! Completely changed the experience. Well worth the money. Also, the guys at Achtuning are such pros. I showed up late in the day, drove from across town and they went out of their way to make it happen for me, stayed late and went through the whole tutorial until I was comfortable with the operation. Service was exceptional. Thanks guys!
I finally did the programming

I wanted to follow up and thank you for the great service you provided yesterday. I left at rush hour so I never got a chance to really step on it, until this morning. VERY noticeable difference, I like! Makes me want to get a DP asap, haha.
