    HPT vs. Maestro?

    I'm wondering if anyone here has used Eurodyne Maestro and can comment on how it compares to HPTuners?

    I've got a 2012 A4 with the 2.0t engine and a '14 A6 with the 3.0t, both with the ZF 8-speed, and am thinking about tuning both. It appears HPTuners can do engine and transmission on both (right?) - Maestro can definitely do the 2.0 engine, maybe can do the 3.0 engine, and it's unclear about the TCU.

    But I'm mostly curious if anyone has used both and can comment on how well they work, how easy they are to use, quality of support, etc.

    Thanks!

    Oh and if it helps any, I'm a fairly experienced tuner but on older cars. I've done the whole bit with R&R'ing ROM chips and poking around to find and edit maps, but 1980's/1990's ECUs were a little simpler...

    i have seen that most of the maps are listed in HPT.
    HPT team is doing hardwork on these,
    The only thing that i don't like the maps names and lack of bosch abbreviation because this is how most german cars tuners learnt the ecu algorithm.

    end up messing around with eurodyne at all?

    i have a powertapp cable but i find the logger and maps available for the B8 chassis super dissapointing and not worth the decent price difference from HP, also there is litterilly 0 support from chris for anything other than the MQB platform company is seriously a joke and basically a hobby for him at this point

    i have stopped using eurodyne and i regret buying it,there is no editor for mqb platform,only for me9,their tech support is rude,and their maps or not good,i have dyno tested their mqb maps,its non like what advertised,for example they claim 300 whp for gti and it will never happen at 23psi on is20..

    For financial reasons I had to choose Euro or HP (not both) and from what I read here and elsewhere I'm glad I chose HP!

    It's still a bummer that Euro provides "canned" tunes whereas HP's tune repository contains absolutely nothing for VAG cars, but from everything I read their software and support is 100x better. Never mind that HP supports the ZF 8-speed autobox (one of which I own two of) and is cheaper!
