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 at Achtuning so if you want to upgrade the suspension on your Golf R, give our sales guys a call!

The Hartmann HPO-310 wheels are 19×8.5 up front and 19×11 out back with a +48mm and +52mm offset respectively, filling out the fenders perfectly.

Outfitting New Wheels On A New Audi A3

Posted on December 29, 2015 – 9:00 am

George dropped off a new Audi A3 and picked out a set of 18″ Euromesh 4-GA (gloss-anthracite/machined) Hartmann Wheels wrapped with a set of all-season tires to replace the factory 17s.

The +45 offset leaves room for a more aggressive fit via wheel spacers if later desired, but we will leave that to George and his better half to add when the time comes.

Nick’s Golf 7 R Is Winter Ready!

Posted on December 22, 2015 – 12:09 pm

Winter is here, and Nick is well prepared for snow covered roads after picking up a set of 18×8.5″ HRS4-DTM Hartmann Wheels wrapped in Winter rubber, his new and dedicated Winter wheel set-up.

Compared to other 18″ wheel options in the Hartmann Wheel line-up for VW (Mk5-7) Golf fitment, these HRS4-DTM wheels provide a better contact patch with a half-inch wider width, allowing our customers to run a 235/40 tire. The offset of the HRS4-DTMs are perfect, putting the face of the wheel just behind the edge of the fender for an aggressive look.

An APR Stage 1 software upgrade was also added to enhance this Golf R’s performance capabilities. The extra ability to grip the road with the slightly wider tire is an added bonus!

Since they share the same wheel specs, the 18×8.5 +47 Hartmann HRS4-DTM Wheels also fit the Audi A3 and TT, in case you were wondering. Call our sales team at 425-895-0000 and pick up a set, or visit our online store and we’ll ship a set out to you right away!

Drivetrain Upgrades for the Achtuning (Mk7) GTI

Posted on December 1, 2015 – 11:53 am

Since replacing the stock IS20 turbo on the Achtuning VW (Mk7) GTI with the IS38 turbo from a Golf R we needed to eliminate weak points within the drivetrain to better put down the extra power.  An upgraded “Stage 2 Daily” clutch and flywheel from Southbend would allow us to climb through the gears without missing a beat…

… While a WaveTrac limited slip differential keeps both feet firmly planted to the ground and evenly distributing power, eliminating torque steer.

As far as we know this is the first manual transmission equipped VW (Mk7) GTI to receive the WaveTrac upgrade and we can’t wait to put the GTI through its paces on the track to test the new upgrades!

17″ Winter Wheel & Tire Package for VW Golf R

Posted on November 12, 2015 – 2:37 pm

Every chance he gets, Ted is up in the mountains during the Winter months shredding snow wherever he can. With reports of snow falling in our regional mountain passes it was time to do some Winter wheel and tire shopping for his new Golf R. While we would typically go through our Hartmann Wheel options, we thought to try on one of our OEM Winter Wheel & Tire Packages we currently have available and are pleased to see we have an option for VW (Mk5-7) GTI and Mk6/7 Golf R owners.

This OEM Volkswagen Winter wheel and tire package consists of 17×6.5 wheels with a +39mm offset and wrapped with 205/50R17 Dunlop Winter Sport 4D tires. Priced at only $1039.96 for the complete package (OEM caps included!) it’s a steal and a no-brainer decision for Ted so he can immediately head up the pass and take on those slopes!

We will be adding this Winter wheel and tire package to the Golf R category of our online store. Meanwhile, order your set by calling 425-895-0000 and our sales representatives will be happy to process your order. Feel free to call or email sales@achtuning.com if you have any questions!
