BEST VW in Boulder/Longmont do Upsolute, which is where I got mine.

Someone was saying that there is an APR dealer in town now.  I just checked the APR site (www.goapr.com) and it appears that there is!

Try http://www.autosportwerks.com/ for more information about the APR chip, which is a very good one, if not the best.

My ECU with 93 octane APR chip should hopefully in by next week.  I'm going to take it to Autosportwerks to have it reprogrammed to a 91 octane program so I'll post my thoughts after I make a visit. The Wett chip is still on sale in the GB forum of CB5.  It'2 295.00 with return shipping included.  You still have to send your ecu to them for the chip and socket.

I got the only chip available from Upsolute for the B5.  It is a 0.8 bar chip that produces 196hp (crank) and 216 lb-ft of torque.  It was $350 installed.

It peaks at 12psi.

I would get the APR chip if I had it to do over again, though the extra $150 would certainly be a consideration.
