For MY2011, an APR flash required that the ECU come out of the car to get flashed for the first time. You've got the option of sending it in or taking it to a reseller that can do the flash. I don't think there's a COBB access port type thing or an open source option like Subarus have.
Oh, and get your dremel ready, cause there are security bolts with no heads. Yay, working with VWs is fun.
