VR Tuning box for GLE 450 Coupe

Hi Guys

Found this yesterday while I was searching for performance upgrade on the GLE 450 Coupe.
http://mbworld.org/forums/c-class-w2...-released.html

Has any GLE 450 Coupe owner tried this and care to share their experience? OR is anyone interested in getting this, maybe negotiate a bigger discount with VR?

I was actually looking into this for my own car however the cost of $1000 for a chipset is a bit too much. Burger Tuning makes chipsets for BMW's and they cost half that. I will most likely get this chipset once the price drops!

I had burger tuning chip for my BMW before. but $1000 for a tune is actually not too bad, if you compare to all other tunes out there. you can actually get it for $850 if you call VR directly.

One good way to get around it is a group buy but that takes a lot of work and not sure if there's a good volume of owners interested at this point. You can always try.

I'm actually about to give them a call and see how much they can do on it. A group purchase would indeed be amazing however you're correct about the amount of owners willing to do so.

I did try to do that, but not many interest as you can see how many people responded to this thread. but I talked to VR. The price $850 is pretty much the group buy price.

by the way, VR is havin a flash sale till 4/29. may be able to get another $25 to 50 off. Just give Jacky a call. Here is MBforum's link, which will give you more info on the tune as well.
