Sak came in earlier in the week to purchase a set of 19" Hartmann Euromesh 3s for his GTI. It didn't take long for him to come back for a set of H&R's Sport Spring kit to address the fender gap. For a low-mileage, rarely driven GTI this set-up should do just right for Sak, and he says he's back in love with his car all over again!
Thank you so very much in advance for your time!
Last Friday we received two Hartmann Wheel containers, the first of several still long over-due to replenish our inventory. Many of you who are on a back-order list will be called soon (if you haven't already) to confirm your wheel order. We thank you all for your continued patience. Please do not hesitate to contact us directly to check on your back-orders or visit our Hartmann Wheel website to check stock levels of the wheel you ordered.
We've added a few NEW wheels to the Hartmann Wheel line-up, and we are excited to share them with you! One more NEW finish has been made available for the Hartmann HRS6-204 and is a limited edition gloss anthracite/machined finish - offered only as a 19x8.5 with a 47mm offset. Quantities are limited so act fast if you're interested in a set!
* 19x8.5 +47: $285 ea.
Brought in by popular request is the Hartmann HV10-289, a gloss anthracite/machined finish first made available in a 19x8.5 with a 38mm offset. A 47mm offset is en route!

In 30+ years, this is the first time Hartmann Wheels has their own center cap!
Achtuning is proud to offer a free set of Hartmann Wheel caps with every Hartmann Wheel order. Hartmann Wheels are still compatible with select OE wheel caps for those looking for a "factory look."
A VWR short-shift kit also made its way into the Achtuning Golf R today. Here it is below sitting next to an OEM one for comparison. The VWR kit is an OEM-like upgrade in that it feels OEM smooth but offers up to a 25% reduction in throw with it's adjustable linkage.
After a quick drive around the neighborhood, this is a short-shift kit we'd recommend every VW Mk5/6 owner (with a M/T of course) picks up.

StopTech has unveiled their new line of racing brake pads!
StopTech, the ultra performance and racing brand from Centric Parts, introduces a new line of StopTech Racing Brake Friction that brings the company’s “Brake Late, Finish First” philosophy to a wider range of racing disciplines. The new racing pads complement the company’s extensive range of high performance brake component and system upgrades - and help turn any StopTech system into a dedicated race system.
Available in four formulations, the new StopTech Racing Brake Pads are engineered to provide optimal friction levels for a variety of different racing applications. All StopTech Racing Brake Pads provide shorter stops, increased control through superior pedal modulation, and fade-free performance at extreme racing temperatures. StopTech Racing pads are designed to provide superior performance in any racing brake system, and match the outstanding performance capabilities drivers have come to expect from all StopTech Racing Brake Systems and components.
StopTech's unique metallic compounds are blended with carbon and graphite particles to provide an optimal high temperature race friction material. The result is smoother, more predictable and more consistent brake engagement along with exceptional release characteristics not found in most other racing friction materials.
StopTech engineers work directly with race teams, often trackside, to gather valuable experience in dynamic real world conditions. Data is immediately integrated into the research and development process, resulting in optimized brake systems for individual racing programs.
StopTech Racing Brake Pads Provide:
- Optimized friction levels for shortest stops
- Engineered for extreme temperatures
- Superb modulation and release characteristics
- Low compressibility for precise pedal actuation
- Excellent pad and rotor life
Pad Compound Characteristics
- Superior pedal feel and modulation characteristics
- Formulated for high initial bite

- Great for rear applications that require less friction but same level of control as SR34 Compound
- Similar friction levels to the SR34 Compound
- Linear torque curve with temperature rise with excellent release characteristics

APR has just released an intake manifold Runner Flapper Delete System for 2.0T FSI (EA113) OEM intake manifold.
The APR Runner Flap Delete System (RFD) is a motorsport inspired upgrade designed to eliminate airflow restrictions within the factory intake manifold. This product is for anyone looking to maximize performance on highly tuned engines.
The runner flaps are individual plates, much like a throttle body flap, located within the intake manifold runners. Unfortunately even when opened to the maximum position, the flaps still represent an airflow restriction as illustrated in the graphic below.
The APR RFD System fills the voids in each runner after removing the runner flaps. Each piece is precision CNC machined from billet aluminum on APR's live tooling in-house lathe.
Simply removing the runner flaps can cause adverse running conditions during cold start. However through proper ECU recalibrations, APR's able to provide RFD specific software for all APR software stages to eliminate this harsh running condition. This is a free upgrade for all existing APR ECU Upgrade customers.
Power Gains: At Stage 3 airflow levels, typical results showed a decrease in turbocharger lag, more than a 10 ft-lbs of torque gain and more than a 10 horsepower gain.
Recommendations: This modification is recommended for APR Stage 2+ and higher modified engines.
Application: For all 2.0T FSI (EA113) factory intake manifolds. If you're unsure which you have, please call for assistance.
Part Number: MS100033
We will be adding this to the Achtuning online catalog shortly.

I can put this here, right?
Of course, we’re a bit biased here but we really think you can’t go wrong when you combine an H&R suspension kit (in this case, a set of their H&R Sport Springs) with some Hartmann Wheels for your Volkswagen or Audi. Matt knows what we’re talking about and even though his appointment was originally for just the spring kit install, he knew very well he couldn't leave it at that. The Hartmann Euromesh 4-GA finally became available as of the last container arrival in VW Mk5 & Mk6 fitment and Matt wanted to be the first to rock them on his JSW!
He apologizes in advance he didn’t get a chance to wash it for this picture but please understand that it’s not really fun washing your car in sub-freezing temperatures. Let’s give him a “pass” on that one and hope he rolls back through when it’s all clean, or at least sends us high-res images when it is. Enjoy the new set-up, Matt! It looks GREAT!!
edit: Post-wash picture sent to us over the weekend…
