      Benchmark Motoring's recent 987 Cayman project... We provided them some H&R Sport Springs to lower the car and APR chip-tuning to bump up the power.

      larger retail location + couch + vending machine + LCD TV to watch with xbox while car gets worked on = GREAT SUCCESS!

      you guys should hire more techs too, so you can do more work.

      i think you should post pictures of the staff and have them write a little "personal" ad about themselves.

      Every now and then I'll just post up random pics or posts about what we've done... Just to give everyone an idea of what it is we do around here. (Not much! )

      So where's all the pictures of you sitting on your ass playing on vortex dion?

      Todd just got a set of powder-coated black CSL reps wrapped in some Falken RT-615 tires for his bimmer. He wanted a set of track wheels. I told him to pop in some center caps so I can take a picture for him but he hasn't done that yet... Plus he's got the car out getting tech inspected. I'll post up pics when I get a chance to take some.

      That's boring. Plus I'm usually the one on the opposite side of the lens.

      And of course there'll be a BBQ!!

      If it's from H&R, Hartmann Wheels, Neuspeed, STÄTUS, and StopTech we're all over it! Our online catalog is not a complete representation of parts we are able to get for you and as it's a never-ending battle for Skyler to keep up with all the new applications so I wouldn't wait to be able to place an online order for your Mk3. Give me a call, send an IM, or email us for a quote on parts you need and we will be happy to take care of you!

      Rumor also has it our new location will allow us to offer more services. Many many big and exciting changes to come!!

      This x2 for me!! I would drop some serious cash with you guys for mk3 goodies. Starting a new VR6T GTi project soon. Which brings me to some questions:

      Do you guys have a dyno?
      Can you mount tires on my powdercoated and polished BBS RS rims? I dont trust just "ANY" tire shop with these babies.
      If you ordered mk3 parts about how long would it take to get in? And who do you work with for mk3 parts?

      We installed the first set of 5x100 Hartmann Euromesh 4 wheels on a VW today! These are 18x8 with a 32mm offset and spaced with H&R's DR-series 5mm spacers up front and 15mm spacers out back. Wrapped in some 225/40-18 Blizzak LM60 tires, this Golf is ready for this Winter season!

      Do you guys have a show room or anything to come to the shop and check out some product, etc? I've been wanting to check out your guy's shop and Speedware in 1 trip. Plus I can go play Disc golf over off Avondale while I'm down there, haha

    32. 07-09-2008 03:42 PM #32
      We do actually. Small at the current location but you'll at least be able to see the products we sell since we stock almost everything.

      There are plans for Achtuning to move to a larger, more retail friendly location. As some of you know, the Hartmann Wheel office (Achtuning's new home) is a bit "hidden" as Hartmann Wheels was primarily wholesale. With the acquisition of Achtuning and our need for more storage with the number of wheels and products we stock, we felt we were due for a larger facility.

      We've "talked" about it for a while like a lot of the things we "want" to do but of course priorities tend to get in the way. When plans are finalized, you can be sure we'll keep you posted. Plans are to stay here in Redmond.
