Best Bang for Buck Power!

I have been researching for a while on power modifications for the 2nd gen q3 since they are quite lacking in power from the factory. If you are reading this review, then you probably already know that there isn’t much mods available, so I was pleasantly surprised to see IE offered a full flash tune.

The app was easy to use and the powerlink bluetooth obd was seamless. The flash took about 25 min and during the writing stage, the instrument cluster had every single warning light appear that I didn’t even know existed. Coming from the import scene in the early 2000’s, it is amazing how much technology has changed in terms of tuning.

Upon driving after the stage 1 flash, I noticed a NIGHT AND DAY difference. You can immediately feel more torque down low and it pulls all the way to redline. I could not believe it was the same vehicle. Audi should have made the Q3 come like this from the factory. On day to day driving, the Q3 is less notchy and I do not need to press the gas pedal so hard to just get up to speed. I do wish that there was a transmission tune available for this terrible 8spd Aisin conventional automatic transmission. When doing spirited acceleration runs at full throttle, you can really feel the lag in between shifts, which feels like an eternity. We were not blessed to have a DSG transmission in the USA unlike Q3’s in other countries.

Overall, you cannot beat the performance gain per dollar that this IE tune provides. Do yourself a favor, buy this…

**** Test Approved

Massive improvement in acceleration and pull through all rpms. The flashing process was simple. Easily the most bang for the buck for my grocery getter Q3.

Side note: Hopefully there will be a TCU tune soon because it feels like the car can’t properly take full advantage of the unlocked power on the factory transmission tuning.

2023 Audi Q3 Tuned IE Stage 1

Highly recommend this tune if you want your VW/Audi gain more power! I went to Axion Motorsport, an IE dealer. Guys are very reliable ! Got my 2023 Audi Q3 tuned with IE stage 1 software. I’ve run several tuners but they said the ECU is too new to be tuned. Fortunately, with Axion Motor sports’ help, IE really wakes up the EA888 engine Gen 3B in my car. Now I throw my piggyback tune box away and enjoy the real power.

23 Q3 Tune

Great ECU changes, running it for a few hundred miles. Q3 has a LOT more pep and I feel much more confident about acceleration overall. While the ECU tune is great, I’d certainly pay $$ to figure out some sort of improvement for the TCU. Love the Q3 and this tune, hopefully a TCU improvement can be made in the future.
