Default No more COBB support 7/2013...

What are people in the US market going to do when COBB support is pulled? I know that there are other companies doing canned tunes via direct ECU flash. My concern is with custom maps.

To each their own.

Any or the tuners out there have horror stories with some customers.

It is the downside of modding for sure and you are correct ALL tuners have had horror stories .

It shouldn't be a big deal especially if your ECU is already running well with the latest updates. I don't see myself going with another custom tune for my R56 with COBB not supporting the AP anymore for the R56.
