    Cobb APs marry themselves to the ECU. They cannot be used on multiple cars.

    Yes they can, you would have to unistall it from the current vehicle then it can be sold or used on another vehicle.

    So I would ask is there anyone who has one for sale because they upgraded or got a new car? Damn those things being expensive used and new. EJ257 do you or have you used one before? did you notice the difference?

    They would have to be unmarried in order to use on your car, which means they are no longer usable by the current owner, and you're interested in buying an AP from someone. Post a thread up in the classifieds section:

    I never never used an AP, personally; I tune via OpenECU. I've installed/uninstalled them on peoples cars, however.

    I have used an AP. They are simple and good tools, especially if you just wanna flash a map and never really do anything to it again, which is funny considering how expensive they are...and many people like them. I'm with EJ257 now though...I'm also on the OpenECU route.

    Keep your eye out for a used Version 1 since you have a 2004. They will run much cheaper, and still provide the same results (stage 2 tune).
