    Hi Liang. Correct, you would need to have the stock file put back on your car. Most tuners these days (including us) encrypt the files so they cannot be read by other companies.

    Ok, its works with a 2013 Golf GTD. But you may not be able to use the controller as you may have a tuner protected ECU. Currently in the process of cracking them but at the moment your ECU needs to be done on the bench. Of course, we supply the same options. I need to add GTD's to the list actually.

    Would it be worth removing GIAC extreme and replacing with yours?

    I could say, yes sure. Its way better. But unless you are having specific problems you cannot get sorted or you want to head in a direction they cannot support then there may not be much point. Maybe the features we are offering are more suited to your needs? Maybe they arent. Its really up to you.....

    Are these tunes bespoke?
    Like meatloaf through a straw, so are the days of our lives.

    haha, depends what your idea of bespoke is. The never ending argument.

    They are specifically tuned to match the modifications you select via the ECU tune builder on the website.
