Post Racechip vs. VAP ECU tuning

I've been lurking on the board for some time, prior to picking up the XF Sportbrake and I've read a lot about the couple of different power options out there for the Jags setup. Anyone active here with an XF 380hp engine try either the Racechip or the VAP tune? Or ideally one and then the other?

I went back and forth with the VAP support people (person? I never got an actual name, but always got answers to my questions) and apparently the newer ECU (2017MY+) has to be flashed with a loaner tool that gets shipped back, it's no longer an option to get the actual flash unit to keep. The other part is that apparently there's no way to revert the ECU flash. On many other makes, you're able to flash back to stock when bringing for service, but not with the VAP tune, so just wanted to see if anyone's tried either or both recently. Any preference? any experience with dealer service under VAP tune?
