Went in there last week and after reading this thread, tried to be unbiased because have been looking at getting a tune and their my local APR dealer but I found them to be very unprofessional. Was told I would get around 250kw after Stage 1 v3.1 which I don't think is very realistic.

MY12.5 Golf R - CW, 5DR, DSG, 19" Black, Sunroof, ACC.
And bear in mind those figures are quoted at the engine - take 25-30% off for the power at the wheels.
My car made 204kw at the wheels with stage 1 DNA tune, intake and downpipe. 204kw at the wheels equates to around 240-245kw at the engine.
hi Lucas, like your 204KW @ wheels, how fast will be 0-100KMPH? cos the book figure for 0-100 is 5.7s, and im just wondering how much faster it will be ? possible under 5s? : )
i havent tested the 0-100kph time since getting the DNA tune. When my car had a different brand of tune (Bluefin) i managed a 5.8 second 0-100kph time - this was about 6 months ago. Bear in mind that my car is a manual so its not as fast to accelerate as a DSG. A time of 5.2 - 5.5 seconds is probably a realistic time for my manual car. If it was DSG then it would probably be around 4.5 - 4.7 seconds.
