      While we have APR looking into a few details prior to software upgrades, we are wasting no time with the Achtuning VW Golf R and getting right down to the suspension! Our Achtuning VW (Mk5) Jetta 2.5L had up until now been running the H&R Premium coil-over kit taken from the Achtuning A3, which has been down for the count while it awaits an APR Stage 4 motor. We're then going to throw the stock Golf R suspension on the Jetta for now.



      H&R also sent us an RSS Club Sport coil-over kit to put on the A3 but more about that later... It's Golf R time!

      There's an interest there, but certainly not on the priority list.

      The H&R Premium coil-over kit is now installed on the Achtuning Golf R. The Achtuning "Signature" ride height is a mild drop leaving roughly a finger-to-two-finger gap between the top of the tire and the bottom of the fender.











      And if any of you Golf R owners are approached by Mk5 Jetta guys wondering what height they would be running after purchasing your stockers, show them this!

      Car looks 10000000000000000000000000x better even with that little bit of a drop, IMO.

      Although... I think I want MOAR LOWWWWWW for my own when it gets here.

      As would I if it were my personal daily. Bill (owner) tracks his cars regularly so this particular set-up needs to be track ready!

      It's amazing what a difference that little bit of a drop makes. I have been hating the wheels up until this point... but lowered they don't look half bad.

      Car looks great! Can you post a link to your site with the exact coils you guys used? Thanks!

      I actually did here, just not in the most recent post. I'll edit that.

      I suspect the stock springs would have settled a bit over then next few days (weeks?) but I'm curious roughly how much of a drop do you think it would be from stock?

    18. 01-13-2012 04:13 PM #43
      Nope, no settling since the Premiums were previously installed on the Achtuning Mk5 Jetta 2.5L. Didn't take measurements at stock ride height but at its current (pictured earlier), fender-to-ground measurements are 25¼" up front and 25½" out back.

      Looks great, already! Can't wait to see the more you do.

      I had my heart set on a RB, but dang it, if that CW doesn't look. . . perfect.

      And agreed, the lowered a little on those stock .:R wheels looks pretty damn good.

      Got a chance to snap a couple of pictures of the installed H&R front and rear sway bars today on our Golf R project, then I took pictures of the Premium coil-overs we're running to show where the adjustment perches sit...







      We then took the opportunity to test-fit some H&R wheel spacers to check clearances, etc. with the different sizes. I am happy to report the hub-centric 8mm (HR162555716) and 10mm (HR20255571A/B) spacers fit over the factory hubs just fine. On the stock wheels, we would suggest a 5mm front and 10mm rear H&R wheel spacer for a "mildly" aggressive look or 10mm front and 12mm rear spacers for the more aggressive look, as seen below:





      ... And compared to stock:





      Take that info with a grain of salt, as ride height will certainly be a factor when deciding wheel spacer widths.

      Squeezed into our schedule today was a short test-fit of the Hartmann G5 Wheels on the Achtuning Golf R. The wheels are 19x8 with a 45mm offset. They're wrapped with 235/35-19 Falken FK452s and shown here without any wheel spacing. The "stance" is fairly aggressive and looks fantastic! Though I might suggest a 225/35-19 for those who plan to run a bit lower than this.

      Car is looking great! Definitely making waiting harder and harder. Any outside pics to see the wheel gap better?

      Nope. The car hasn't been outside today yet.
