Has anyone with MY 06 upgraded to an IPD ECU yet? I was told that they have not updated their current upgrade taking 06 software changes into account. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> Thanks

Re: 2006 IPD ECU Upgrade (jdog)

I do not understand why you people cannot call the provider (in this case ipd) and ask for yourself. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>That way, no stories, no rumors

Re: 2006 IPD ECU Upgrade (JRL)

I ask here because chances are someone has a quick answer for me. I can't call IPD when I'm at my desk from 8-5, but I can type a quick message. Also, some people chime in with their advice or experiences regarding certain modifications or vendors, which you won't get from the provider. Why do we even have this forum if you can't ask questions. If you don't like it, then keep it to yourself.

No argument at all, you're the one who's acting like a jerk.<br>All that was said now by TWO people is to ask ipd very simple, obviously no one here has an answer for you.<br>I don't think they have software for 06's, they didn't a month ago yet but they may have by now

jdog - i appreciate the question and support you. No offense to anyone...but one might have phrased an answer like this: "i don't have any experience on an 06' - maybe you could call IPD direct?". After many years with billion $ companies...we learn how to communicate via email.<p>I also would like that answer in case i don't like my BSR PPC which is on it's way.<p>
