Mk8 Golf GTI & R APR Performance Tuning in Auckland

We Are An Approved APR Dealer!

Looking to get your MK8 GTI or R tuned?

APR are one of the most well respected names when it comes to tuning Volkswagens, and we are proud to be able to officially offer APR ECU tuning for Mk8 Golfs at Dodson!

Why Choose An APR Tune For Your Mk8 Golf GTI or R?

An ECU tune is some of the best bang for buck mods you can make on your Mk8 Golf.

However, ECU tunes can come with risks.

The problem with ECU tunes is that they affect how the motor runs, so a bad tune can be a very risky gamble.

If not done correctly, you can end up with little to no gains, or in a worst-case scenario you could blow your motor up.

That’s why it’s extremely important to only use a tune from a reputable manufacturer who has a track record of producing high quality tunes.

APR is one of the biggest names when it comes to tunes for Golfs for very good reason.

What Makes APR's Golf Mk8 Tunes So Good?

APR have been in the game since 1997 and are one of the biggest names when it comes to performance for VWs worldwide.

They offer a number of things that few other tuning companies offer:

  • APR focuses almost entirely on the VAG lineup. This allows them to understand the vehicles they tune much more thoroughly than a general tuner, resulting in upgrades that are better suited to each specific car.
  • They offer a wide range of performance upgrades from ECU tunes to intakes and exhausts, turbos and more, making for a well-rounded, balanced car which is more reliable and offers better performance.
  • APR invest significantly into R&D, ensuring that all their products are the absolute highest quality and offer both  excellent performance and driveability for the road
  • Their products are absolutely top quality, often to OEM or better standards in terms of materials and production methods. Their parts are designed to meet and exceed the quality of the parts they are replacing.
  • APR offer excellent customer support.
  • They offer a limited powertrain warranty on their ECU software, which shows how confident they are in their product, providing you with peace of mind.

Based on 30 reviews
I don’t normally give out 5 stars, but this place deserves the full credit, did a transmission service, very professional and friendly. Can’t expect anything more tbh.

Great experience all the way from the quoting stage through to the carry out of the job. Took the time to come for a test drive with me prior to engaging in the service. Dodsons completed the job for a third of what it would’ve cost me to get my transmission serviced and recalibrated through BMW. Very happy customer

I brought my E60 M5 to Dodson Motorsport for a general service and was blown away how thorough they are. There was no pressure to get any extra work done, but I was well advised of all potential issues that had previously gone unnoticed at another shop. This shows attention to detail by them, which is exactly what you want when dealing with performance vehicles. If you have a vehicle that you truly love, and only want the best care for it, then I highly recommend Dodson.

Excellent service and a fair price for servicing my wife's Cayenne. Even rung to tell her about a water pump leak but let her know it did not need replacing for a while - don't see honesty like that often these days. We will be customers from now on!
