      RS4 content on VW!!

      Keith drove up from the Portland area to pick up his $1000 set of RS4 wheels (no longer available) and tires from us. Since Keith's GTI is an '08 model, we had to remove the TPM sensors from his stock set-up to transfer to the new wheels.





      Over-all a nice upgrade from his stock 17s.

      Not quite... And I knew someone would call me out on that quick!
      The gallery we're setting up to host all our images will eventually do an automated watermark. The one on the corner is currently an automated one (and will likely be removed) while the "ghost" watermark was one I was manually adding to images all along - that one I will set-up as an automated one.

      Too low an offset for the Mk5. I like your Mesh 305s better.

      I had a chance to take Bill's (owner of Achtuning) allroad out for a proper photoshoot since the car arrived clean and we hadn't done a shoot with the 20" Q7 wheels on it.

      The Hartmann QS-10 is a replica of one of the Audi Q7 wheels and is available in bolt patterns to fit both Audis and Porsches. Pictured below is the 20x9, 5x112 version with a 40mm offset mated with 25mm front and rear H&R spacers. Tire size is 275/30-20 but Bill intends to go down to a 255/30 since it rubs slightly on sharp turns. On to the pictures...







      We also mounted a set of the Hartmann HR8-GS:M wheels onto Jose's Mk5 GLI the same day. The Hartmann HR8-GS:M wheels are 19x8.5" with a 48mm offset and wrapped with Bridgestone Potenza RE750 tires in a 235/35-19. Jose has plans to lower the car on H&R Race springs and upgrade the ECU with APR Performance Software.







      Then Graydon drove down from Vancouver, B.C. to have a set of Hartmann HRS4-252-SS "RS4" style wheels for his B6 A4 1.8T. These are the 19x8.5" version with a 38mm offset, a perfect offset for the B5 through B7 Audi A4s - also wrapped with Bridgestone tires.

      Thanks Trav!
      As for the B6 A4, we had intended to install H&R coil-overs for the customer but he had some other suspension issues that unfortunately needed to get taken care of first. Due to our schedule, we were not able to take on that extra task yesterday and we didn't want the customer stranded over night in Seattle. He does intend to bring the car down quite a bit and mentions we might see it at Great Canadian.

      We had a D3 A8 sitting around the shop so we threw a set of the new Hartmann HS5-209-GA:M wheel on to see what it would look like...







      Customer came back, saw the wheels on the car and said, "I'll take 'em!" []

      Achtuning welcomes home an old friend...

      It wasn’t very long after we completed Bob’s B5 RS4 conversion project that the car was driven down Hwy 101 from Washington to California where it would reside for almost a year. Just last week Bob brought the car back up to Washington (coming back up the same way he went down) to give us an opportunity to show it off at the WaterWërks event here in the Seattle area.



      Bob’s B5 S4 received the full RS4 conversion treatment when it was here at Achtuning. The APR Stage III kit for the B5 S4 is an unbeatable combination of factory RS4 components and APR programming bumping stock horsepower to an APR claimed 447hp and 467ft-lbs of torque! Further, this is a daily driven car that Bob reports drives perfectly each day without a single issue.



      Modifications include but not limited to…

      Engine:
      * APR Stage III kit
      * APR RS4 Intercooler and Hose kit
      * RS4 Oil Cooler Kit
      * RS4 Engine Mounts
      * RS4 Carbon Fiber Engine Covers

      Exhaust:
      * Milltek Downpipes and High Flow Cats
      * Milltek SuperDual Twin Pipe Cat-back Exhaust

      Drivetrain:
      * RS4 Flywheel
      * RS4 Clutch Kit
      * STaSIS TorSen Center Differential
      * STaSIS LSD - Rear Differential

      Brakes & Suspension:
      * STaSIS Motor Sport Coil Over Suspension Kit
      * STaSIS Monobloc 6 - 355 Big Brake System
      * STaSIS Rear Brake Kit

      Wheels & Tires:
      * Volk CE28N Forged Wheels - 19X9.5 et36 - Anthracite
      * Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD3 - 275/30-19

      Interior:
      * Status Carbon Fiber/Silver Alcantara Laguna Seats
      * Silver Alcantara door cards and rear seat inserts
      * RS4 Door Sills

      Exterior:
      * RS4 Complete Body Kit
      * Valeo Xenon HID Euro Housings
      * Stealth Bulbs







      It’s great to see the car back. If you want to come check it out in person, be sure to stop by the Achtuning booth at the WaterWërks 2008 event.

      Dave Meister stopped by to grab some raffle items we were giving away for the 2008 WaterWërks event so I snapped a couple of pictures since he recently installed our 328x28mm StopTech Big Brake Kit for the VW Mk4s.



      StopTech's Mk4 BBK includes 2 piece floating directional 328mm x 28mm slotted rotors with 7075 T6 billet aluminum hats, 4 piston ST-40 calipers, stainless steel front brake lines and AXXIS Ultimate front brake pads.

      Stoptech Big Brake Kits give your vehicle that Supercar look and feel, and exceed stock performance in two areas. First, larger rotors increase heat capacity. Second, stiffer calipers and stainless steel lines reduce system compliance.

      The key, however, is to increase heat capacity and reduce compliance without upsetting the stock front to rear brake torque ratio. If the brake upgrade you select adds too much front torque (as many do), you reduce your car's ability to utilize the tractive capacity of all of the tires to the maximum practical extent (even on ABS equipped cars) and you therefore create performance sacrifices. In addition, too many pistons or pistons that are too large will make the brake pedal much more difficult to modulate, which limits a driver's control of brake input on the race track. This StopTech kit is a perfect balanced brake upgrade for the Mk4.
