That’s not the first time I’ve seen reports of Mountunes CS being crap (and this has been over a period of years, not due to Covid-19) 


Yea I’m actually speaking to another owner who has the stage 1 like me and he said it took them 5 weeks to get his device sent out and then 3 weeks for his intake, he’s ordered the TCU on the same day as me and is in the same boat.

 

They have responded to him this morning and said it will be Tuesday at the earliest...thats it, so thats 5 days after purchase and to be fair I couldn’t give a crap that it’s a bank holiday weekend, they should be trying to fill peoples orders, people who are spending a lot of money during tough times and supporting a business.

 

They’ve seen my message on Instagram but just ignored it and haven’t responded to an email, website says they won’t answer calls at the minute.

 

My main issue is that they’ve been advertising the TCU tune and then responded to all questions on social media along with a separate link for people who already own the stage 1 but no mention of delays due to COVID and then all communications go black.

 

The tune is done via a COBB handset (without COBB wrote on it) so it’s just a case of a file transfer via email once they have the handset codes.

You should just message them and say you’re using chargeback on your card to get your money back. I bet they respond within the hour!

I paid using PayPal so getting a refund isn’t an issue if I want but then I’m stuck without a TCU remap.

 

I rep them all the time of social media too, been so happy with the service and how the car performs.

Maybe a bit harsh, unless I am missing something you placed the order Thursday and its being sorted on Tuesday so take out sat/sun & Bank hol Mon you are waiting 2 days?
I get that you are impatient but that's hardly much of an issue is it?
Also is it customisable in any way or just a file to be flashed as there are lots of things you might want to consider i.e. Shift change points, removing kickdown (really advise that!) and launch control adjustments. If it's just their map and not customisable there may be some compromises to be accepted

Gosh I guess I am not the only one molling over what stage 1 tune to go with. 
 

mountune is great but all in is like £700+
SA Tunning provide a similar handset but tune of your cars file and do it for £499 all in

have a mate who knows someone at Avon performance and he will do a drive in tune for £200. 
 

man and to top it out the figures quoted are all similar with mountune been the highest. 
 

but here are some questions to think about. 
 

would me getting a sports air filter and turbo elbow before stage 1 impact the possible power gains I’ll get?

If you get a £200 remap I doubt anything is going to compliment it apart from a big bill at some point...

      Howdy folks,
       
      My name is Sam and I am a proud owner of a one of a kind Black Golf 7R, DSG with 5 Doors. I have named her Raven (I have my reasons   )
       
      Bit of background: I upgraded from a Mk5 GTI that was running a Stage 2+ Tune from R-Tech. My previous build thread (picture heavy) can be found here: http://www.mk5golfgti.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,92146.0.html

      I test drove a 7R at the start of 2016 and had my heart set on one ever since. However, I was too picky and wanted the exact specification I had in mind. Luckily I soon found the previous owner and have closely followed the development of this car from stock. I finally took ownership at the end of 2016. And needless to say...what a machine...  
      To put things into perspective   
      2011 GT-R R35: 523HP, 451LBFT, 1740KG 
      2014 Raven: 550HP, 556LBFT, 1401KG
      In her base form, she's a top spec Japanese Import 7R (2014 model). Factory spec includes:
      - 5 Door DSG in DBP
      - DCC (now swapped with VWR Coilies)
      - Discover Nav Pro with Reverse Camera
      - Sunroof
      - Keyless Entry
      - Black Leather interior with fully electric driver's seat adjustment
      - Lane Assist, Light Assist and all the other trimmings such as ACC etc
      I do not have the mods list compiled - its' a big list.. so for now, enjoy some pictures. Feel free to follow my Insta @sam.7r for recent updates.
       
      LOADS of changes have been made since I've taken ownership and there are plenty more in the pipeline. So stay tuned..
      Most of the changes I've made are related to suspension, chassis, wheels, audio and some performance. There's few cosmetic bits too.

      I will continue to update this thread as and when I can..

      Hi all, 
       
      I have recently purchased a Remus backbox to fit to my MK7 golf R. I purchased it from the Facebook golf owners group as an exhaust that would fit on my 64 plate R. I sent it to a garage to get fitted and they have told me that it will not fit onto my car as the place where they would cut the original exhaust would not fit in the Remus backbox and even if it did it wouldn’t work due to the original have flat spots? Here is the pictures of the exhaust below. Would anyone be able to help? Have I brought the wrong exhaust for my car? Or do I need the full system for it to fit? 
       
      Thanks.

      Hello everyone,
       
      This is Scott from Taiwan 😀 I am here since January but was just lurking around and watching everybody's build thread.
       
      After 4 months waiting, dealer told me the car has finally arrived and asked me if I would like to see the car before the official pick-up date, it was really excited for me so I went to the dealer....
       
      Car Spec: LapizBlue | 7-Speed DSG (DQ381) | DCC | Dynaudio | Pretonia |ACC
       

       

       

       

       

       
      My previous car is AUDI A3 Sportback 2.0T FWD DSG, and was running Pagpart's EFR7163 big turbo kit that made 530WHP & 660NM. The reason I got rid of my 7163 A3 is because I would like to play something different but AWD car, running big power 530WHP on a FWD car was really really terrible once WOT, kind of scary to drive the car at that time.

      Hello all, my first post on the forum. Just wondering:
       
      Which are the ‘best’ lowering springs for ride comfort? The car won’t be getting track use so I’m just looking to reduce the arch gap, without breaking my back 😂.
       
      With that in mind, I’m looking at a 20mm drop. Which spacers are best, that don’t cause rub? 
       
      Should also note;
      - I won’t be changing the dampers on the car. 
      - I’m running the 18inch Pretoria’s. As opposed to the 19’s or the Cadiz.

      Developed this noise after getting an apr Downpipe and custom miltec exhaust fitted. Made it both on stage 1 and stage 2+ tune. Had people tell me it’s just the wastegate but figured I’d ask other R owners. Thoughts?
