Sleeper Status

Posted on November 24, 2015 – 12:07 pm

Someone just dropped some serious cash to have us upgrade the performance characteristics of their 2013 DSG-equipped VW (Mk6) GTI.  The pile of parts contribute to a 133 HP / 143 TQ gain over stock and include an APR K04 turbo kit, APR cast down-pipe, Carbonio carbon fiber intake, APR intercooler, Neuspeed Hi-Flo turbo discharge pipe, Neuspeed Hi-Flo air charge pipe, and Stern rear subframe brace to compliment a previously installed set of H&R ultralow coilovers.

… But even with the hood up you’d be hard pressed to find any of these upgrades, a total sleeper!

Winter Prep

Posted on November 9, 2015 – 2:32 pm

Winter is just around the corner and with temperatures beginning to dip below Summer tire performance tolerances in parts of the country it’s time for some of our Audi customers to begin switching out their stock wheels and tires for dedicated Winter rollers. It’s Audi allroad day today at Achtuning with Justin’s C5 allroad getting one of the OEM Audi Winter Wheel and Tire packages we have available…

… and Tom’s B8 allroad now sportin’ HTT-256-MA:M Hartmann Wheels.

Tom also had us install H&R Sport Springs for the allroad which changed the nose-bleed section 5″ wheel gap, bringing it down to a more eye pleasing 2″ gap while 15mm front and 20mm rear TrakPlus® wheel spacers from H&R allow the new tires and the fender’s edge to get better acquainted for an over-all sportier look. What do you think?

Posted on August 12, 2015 – 3:19 pm

Jason’s A4 avant as it sits on H&R “Street Performance” coilovers with our 19″ HRS7-163 Hartmann Wheels. The Achtuning “Signature Ride Height” leaves enough room for you to clear your daily obstacles without issue while allowing a more aggressive wheel offset to give the avant a more European stance.  Looks fantastic, if we are allowed to say so ourselves!

Both suspension kits and wheels are IN STOCK, ready to ship as soon as we receive your order! Call 425-895-0000 or email
