APR is pleased to announce all previously known “locked” Simos 18 ECUs are now DirectPort Programmable with any current stage of APR software at Achtuning! The software install process is now a simple flash over the OBD-II port, just like the earlier models, and does not require removal of the ECU from the vehicle for available software. Most commonly “locked” ECUs were found in late model 2015 and newer versions of the following vehicles:
1.8T/2.0T EA888 Gen 3 (MQB Platform):
- MK7 VW Golf 1.8T
- MK7 VW GTI 2.0T
- MK7 VW Golf R 2.0T
- MK3 Audi A3 1.8T
- MK3 Audi A3 2.0T
- MK3 Audi S3 2.0T
1.8T/2.0T EA888 Gen 3 (Non-MQB Platform):
Please Note: If a new ECU Box Code or Revision is found that is not currently available by APR and not currently in APR’s possession, please contact us for details on how you can save on the ECU Upgrade. Also, if you currently have APR software this is not an update as this only applies to ECUs that were previously unavailable.
No appointment necessary! Just roll through between the hours of 9am and 4pm, Monday through Friday. Thank you and GO APR!
