I just upgraded the 2nd wagon with this software and am now convinced that it is VERY GOOD.<br>Both wagons (99R and 00XC) are now noticeably quicker, smoother with MUCH better throttle response <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> so if yours has a stock ECU I say go for it, <B>NOW</B>

Re: Stock 99's an 2000's new ETM software (JRL)

Yeah, I had my 99 S70AWD done and I couldn't believe it. I actually asked if they did something else to the car I wasn't aware of ! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>The only other work they did was a routine oil change. It's got to be either good software or some kind of SUPER OIL. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>

Re: (JRL)

What are the ramifications if you have a ECU upgrade (SpeedTuning)?<p>I’m tempted to have this done, as I want the replaced ETB to last longer, but feel it might be a step down in performance. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>regards,<br>MAJ

Re: (JRL)

Is there a partnumber for this, because we don't get this recall in Europe... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">
