because nobody has cracked the ecu yet, the claims are extreme and the price is way too low if they did have those results.

The address is a strip mall with a cleaners, a bank, and a coffee shop...

Good ECU/chipping companies, like APR, are mostly sold through quality independent service shops. In APR's case, there isn't an actually chip, it's an ECU reflash. Most of these independent shops will let you try it for 4-6 hours before you buy it. The cost is usually between $350 and $600.

There are some online sales for chipping as well, just make sure its a well known company that knows what they are doing. Just because someone cracks the ECU, doesn't mean they will keep your car safe.

Thanks guys, good info. I'm completely new to this type of product. Too good to be true I guess.

That is hilarious.

I guess it isn't available for my car since I don't have a "2012 2DR COUPE" or a "2012 4DR SEDAN".

Yeah, the same performance and the exact same page and information is listed for every vehicle in the world. It's a scam.
