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.

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

      SR34 Compound

      • Superior pedal feel and modulation characteristics
      • Formulated for high initial bite
      • Slight torque rise with temperature
      • Extremely low pad and abraded disc wear
      • All purpose pad for high grip, high power applications



      SR33 Compound

      • Slight reduction in torque compared to SR34 Compound
      • Excellent pedal modulation for applications requiring a medium friction level
      • Flat torque curve with temperature rise
      • Extreme fade resistance
      • Great for rear applications that require less friction but same level of control as SR34 Compound



      SR32 Compound

      • Similar friction levels to the SR34 Compound
      • Linear torque curve with temperature rise with excellent release characteristics
      • Superb abraded disc wear
      • Maximum high-temperature stability
      • For medium to high horsepower applications that require higher friction levels



      SR30 Compound

      • Medium to low friction levels with linear torque curve with rising temperature
      • Extreme high temperature fade resistance
      • Excellent modulation and release characteristics
      • Repeatable performance
      • For Touring Car rear applications and others requiring lower torque




      StopTech Racing Brake Friction products are available now. For more information about any StopTech product or to place an order, visit www.achtuning.com or give us a call - 425-895-0000.

      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

      Price: $199.99

      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…

      StopTech Introduces One-Piece Rotor Big Brake Kits for VW GTI!



      StopTech, the championship-winning performance and racing brand from Centric Parts, has released a Big Brake Kit developed for the 2006-2012 Volkswagen GTI and several other Volkswagen and Audi applications! The kits are available for front axle applications and include StopTech 1-piece Sport Rotors, StopTech ST-41 powder-coated four-piston calipers with the patented stiffening bridge, StopTech Street Performance brake pads for extended high performance street driving as well as occasional track use, StopTech braided stainless steel brake lines, plus all necessary brackets and hardware to complete the job.

      StopTech One-Piece Big Brake Kits for 2006-2012 VW GTI – Part Number 82.893.5N00.XX

      The stiff 2-piece, fully-forged calipers have designated piston sizes specific to this application and provide a firmer, more responsive brake pedal that provides better brake pedal modulation. The larger 328x25mm directionally-vaned 1-piece StopTech Sport Rotors, available in slotted or drilled finishes, provide greater heat capacity and reduced brake fade. Also assisting in fade resistance and higher performance are the StopTech Street Performance Pads which have a high maximum operating temperature and high bite for responsive brakes that can be driven hard. The included StopTech braided stainless steel brake lines reduce system compliance and help provide a firmer pedal with a more immediate and better modulated response to inputs.

      It was in May of 2008 when we first asked Audi and VW enthusiasts what they thought about a possible new style we were considering adding to the Hartmann Wheel line-up. The unique style seemed to be a hit but priorities meant we had to put the idea on hold. Similar styles and new brands have since popped up with a good portion of the automotive industry embracing the once popular mesh style from the early 80s. When our German partners were recently asked to produce a higher quality, TUV approved version we jumped at the opportunity to add the retro-styled, German-quality wheel to the Hartmann line-up. While we might be a bit late to the game, we are proud to announce the latest addition to the Hartmann family – the HLP-410-GS:M!



      In similar Hartmann fashion, the low-pressure heat treated cast wheel is painted a high-gloss silver then diamond-cut machined on the face. A clear-coat completes the process for a durable, lasting finish! Current sizes are 19×8.5 with either a 38 or 45mm offset – available to fit most of the Audi and Volkswagen models and they weigh 27 lbs. You’ll be able to find these in the online store shortly.

      Achtuning presents the APR 2.0T FSI Stage III GTX Turbocharger System & Upgrade Kit! (EA113-K03 Vehicles)



      Building upon over a decade’s worth of experience with turbocharged Audi and VW engines, including over half a decade with direct injected engines, APR’s Engineers have taken the 2.0T FSI to ground breaking levels of performance without compromise.

      APR has introduced the 2.0T FSI Stage III GTX Turbocharger System. Producing over 405 horsepower on 93 (R+M)/2 octane and 449 HP in racing configurations, Stage III GTX places the 2.0T FSI's accelerative performance in the same league as that of large V8 supercharged muscle cars and sub $400,000 exotic sports cars.

      The new APR Stage III GTX Turbocharger System represents a large leap in technology over our previously available GT Turbocharger System. The new system’s response is much quicker, spooling hundreds of RPM sooner thanks to the latest in Garrett turbocharger technology and advancements in the ECU Upgrade. Further refinement of the fueling system increases the vehicle's reliability and drivability to levels only matched by the OEM. A substantial increase in horsepower and torque results in roughly a 30-50 HP gain in the area under the curve over the previous system. As you hear a new exotic growl from your exhaust system, expect exhilarating g-force levels sure to put a huge grin on your face!

      To learn about many component included in the APR Stage III GTX Turbocharger System, see below. For previous owners of the older APR Stage III GT Turbocharger System, an upgrade package is available.

      APR Stage III GTX Components

      Turbocharger




      At the heart of Stage III GTX is a GTX2867R turbocharger, consisting of the latest technologies from Le Mans’ winning turbo manufacturer, Garrett Honeywell. The internally gated unit features a fully-machined, ten-blade billet compressor wheel and a dual ball bearing oil and water-cooled CHRA. APR’s Engineers spent countless hours testing turbine inlet and A/R sizes in order to decrease turbocharger lag without negatively impacting peak power. The newly developed compressor housing utilizes anti-surge porting, which greatly complements the lightning fast spool characteristics of this unit and grants APR’s Engineers the ability to deliver massive levels of torque inducing boost pressure, even in the lower RPM range.

      Each turbocharger unit is assembled and clocked in house at APR with the necessary brackets to ensure proper wastegate fitment and orientation. Each wastegate is then calibrated for precise operation and control to ensure seamless integration with the expertly recalibrated OEM engine management system.

      APR Stage III GTX Software



      The factory Bosch MED 9 engine management system is responsible for proper operation of the engine in all conditions. With built in compensational data for environmental variables and varying load conditions, the factory ECU is far more complex and intelligent than units found in other vehicle makes and marks.

      With the significant amount of changes included in the APR Stage III GTX Turbocharger System, APR’s Engineers spent months recalibrating the engine management system to operate smoothly as if intended by the OEM. Thanks to APR’s incredible proprietary calibration suite, data logging software and full access to the coding structure of the ECU, appropriate and intelligent changes are made to ensure flawless drivability and excellent performance without compromise.

      APR’s EMCS program switching technology puts control of the ECU in your finger tips allowing you to access modes for standard pump fuel, high output race fuel and even reduced output valet modes to protect your vehicle against improper use by other individuals. This technology is patented by APR and is found nowhere else in the world. It’s Performance Without Compromise only APR can deliver!

      *Note* Exiting APR Software customers will receive a fully loaded ECU. New Customers will receive 1 program and may purchase additional programs al la cart. Please check for EMCS availability.

      Exhaust Manifold



      Attached to the turbocharger is APR’s investment-cast, super alloy, nickel-chromium-based Inconel 625 Manifold featuring APR’s Sequential Exhaust Pulse runner lengths. Unlike hand welded tubular manifolds, Inconel is a very high temperature resistant material designed to withstand extreme exhaust gas temperature changes without expanding, contracting, melting or cracking under stress. This material is typically found only at the highest levels of professional motorsport racing where reliability is essential to success.

      Investment-cast Inconel features heat retention characteristics which aid in turbo response by keeping exhaust velocity high. Ensuring each exhaust pulse arrives at the collection point without collision is critical to producing lightning fast response and immediate torque delivery. Using 3D modeling and computational fluid dynamics software, APR’s Engineers designed varying short runner lengths calibrated to deliver sequential exhaust pulses without collision. A reduction in backpressure from the high flow design directly enhances power delivery.

      Each manifold is investment-cast in the United States of America and machined in house on APR’s CNC machines to ensure high casting tolerances, repeatable results and strict quality control. The thick casting material reduces unwanted exhaust noise leaving behind a powerful and exotic growl.

      All of these characteristics result in a manifold designed without compromise backed by a confidence inspiring lifetime warranty.

      Induction and Charge Piping



      Wire reinforced, multi-ply silicone hoses provide an unrestricted path for airflow to enter and exit the turbocharger at over 1,000 kilograms per hour. The ultra rigid design ensures boost and vacuum piping will not swell or collapse causing leaks and restrictions in the induction and charge piping system supporting boost response and turbo recovery. Each hose is engineered to fit properly into the vehicle's engine bay with all necessary emissions and reference ports securely affixed.



      APR’s Easy-Flow Silicone Hose design features stepped mounting surfaces for smooth transitions from one pipe to another. Traditional designs simply sit on top of each other, often resulting in a disruptive airflow path. By using the stepped design, hoses fit properly without airflow restrictions, resulting in the most ideal path for moving air through the turbocharger and into the engine.

      Turbo Outlet Pipe



      To provide unrestricted and smooth airflow from the turbocharger to the intercooler, the APR Stage III GTX Turbocharger System includes a cast enlarged turbo outlet pipe to properly deliver the additional airflow from the larger turbocharger.

      Mass Airflow Housing



      The vehicle's engine management relies on load calculations to accurately control the engine. Calculations are made by measuring airflow across the Mass Airflow Sensor and this is a critical component of the APR Stage III GTX Turbocharger System.

      The small and restrictive factory unit is removed and replaced with the much larger housing. To ensure accuracy, APR’s MAF housing is cast in the United States of America and CNC machined in house at APR to ensure repeatable results. The long, precision-machined housing features a honeycomb airflow straightener to further aid in accurately reading airflow levels. Simply enlarging the MAF housing is not permissible without accurate adjustments to the factory engine management system, which is included with APR Stage III GTX Turbocharger System.

      Oil and Coolant Lines



      APR’s oil and coolant lines are specific to the vehicle's Stage III GTX System and provide years of leak free operation. The oil lines feature flexible braided stainless steel with CNC mandrel bent hard-lines for specific and clean hose routing as if intended by the OEM.

      Low Pressure Fuel Pump System



      The APR Low Pressure Fuel Pump System is a complete, OEM style, PWM controlled drop in fuel pump and controller solution designed to fit cleanly in the OEM location. The upgraded pump provides adequate low-pressure fuel to the APR High Pressure Fuel Pump to support the power levels produced by the APR Stage III GTX Turbocharger System.

      High Pressure Fuel Rail Valve



      The factory vehicle's gasoline direct injection injectors require higher than factory fuel rail pressure to achieve targeted air fuel ratios under high load, wide open throttle operation. APR’s Low Pressure Fuel Pump delivers the desired volume of fuel to the APR High Pressure Fuel Pump, which provides increased fueling headroom over the factory unit. However, the factory High Pressure Fuel Rail Valve limits maximum rail pressure below the desired level. The included APR High Pressure Fuel Rail Valve is calibrated to increase the maximum rail pressure to levels necessary for proper operation.

      In doing so, APR’s able to support far higher horsepower levels than achievable on the existing APR Stage III GTX Turbocharger Systems without the need to alter the factory, correct spray pattern, injectors. This results in smoother part throttle operation, factory-like cold starts and fewer unburnt hydrocarbons emitted from the tailpipe under all conditions compared to other fueling options.

      Cast Downturn and Downpipe



      The GTX2867R internally gated turbocharger unit features a Garrett five-bolt flange, which differs from the OEM turbocharger flange. To support this design, the APR Stage III GTX Turbocharger System includes cast stainless steel exhaust downturn and downpipe, which mates directly to an APR Midpipe, Downpipe or Turboback Exhaust System.

      Nuts, Bolts, Gaskets, Washers, Clamps, Fittings, etc



      Every APR Stage III GTX Turbocharger System includes all necessary components for a complete install.

      Bracketry



      No matter how small the part, each piece of the APR Stage III GTX Turbocharger System oozes with quality evident in pieces like the Stage III GTX's laser cut ancillary brackets and carriers.

      Spark Plugs



      Proper temperature range spark plugs are included with each APR Stage III GTX Turbocharger System.
