APR DQ250 DSG Clutch Packs

Posted on July 19, 2016 – 9:00 am

APR is pleased to present the ultimate clutch pack upgrade for the DQ250 transmission!

The APR DQ250 Clutch Packs replace the factory transmission’s friction disc and steel plates with an advanced and proprietary design that allows for greater performance. The system goes beyond the norm of simply increasing the disc and plate count, and takes a multi-step approach that not only greatly improves the overall friction engagement area, but does so without sacrificing the total heat-sink material mass of the steel plate. With 40-50% more friction discs, tighter tolerances, carefully specified materials, surface finishes, a proprietary top plate design and more, the clutches hold more torque, prevent premature failure, and provide quick stutter-free high-performance engagement!

Bird’s Reflex Silver Golf R

Posted on June 8, 2016 – 4:53 pm

Bird brought us his Reflex Silver Golf R for some suspension upgrades.  While our neighbors up North in Canada get this color option standard there are only 4 or 5 here in the U.S.  We’re told this vehicle used to be one of VW’s press vehicles and ended up at Auburn VW where Bird picked it up when he traded in his Golf TDI.

We installed VWR Sport Springs, SuperPro control arm bushings and rear sway bar links, an H&R rear sway bar, and 034 Motorsport rear subframe inserts.

We also wrapped some tires around a set of Work VSXX wheels Bird had refinished after taking them off his old Golf TDI.

… and performed a post suspension install alignment to finish things up.

These are upgrades we keep in stock …
