      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.

      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

      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. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

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. <p>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.

      We are pleased to announce our recent sponsorship of the Audi Club NorthWest (ACNW) by assisting in providing loaner helmets for the ACNW’s various driving events throughout the year. The helmets were christened at the recent Matt Ammon Memorial Driving School held at Bremerton Motorsports Park. One of our guys here attended the school and, honestly can’t stop talking about it. These helmets will make their next appearance at WaterWerks in August as the ACNW is managing this year’s autocross event. If you are not a member, definitely check it out.
