    Thread: ACHTUN!NG | VW Mk6 Golf R Thread

    1. 06-01-2012 07:36 PM #176


      Achtuning's Hartmann turbo-back exhaust for the Golf R is done! We're picking up the car now and driving it back home to Seattle over the weekend. I'm told there will even be an appearance at one of the gatherings tonight at Wuste in Vegas on the way up so if any of you guys are there, be sure to check it out!

      Pre-order pricing for the complete turbo-back exhaust will be $1399 + shipping. Will try and get better pictures and a sound clip up early next week. Meanwhile, feel free to contact us and put yourself on a pre-order list if you're already committed.

      At that price that exhaust could take a lot of business from other systems out there, as long as it sounds good. Great pricing.

      im no exhaust engineer, but that seems like the right price point to me. nothing against any other companies at all, but id be maxed out around $1400. you dont really get much from the cat back on these cars from what i see other than a bit of great sound. i cant justify an extra $1500 from my 42DD downpipe for a bit of sound.

      im not trying to slam anyone here at all. just my opinion.

      Will this be compatible with the Australian Golf R DSG Model? I only ask because APR here is asking $3100 for a full turbo-back exhaust. If shipping isn't $1,000 you might have a new customer.

      There shouldn't be a fitment issue with a DSG-equipped car, but we don't have any here to absolutely guarantee that. We also do not ship overseas but we do have a Hartmann Wheel distributor there you can contact about sharing freight space on any of his incoming orders from the US? (contact me via email for his info)

      Now it just needs a bath!

      The Golf R made it back and sounds AMAZING!! An iPhone sound clip won't do this justice so thanks in advance for your patience as I wanna do this right and get some professional sound clips done, perhaps even a video of the car. The tone is nice and DEEP. Bill tells me there's a bit of a drone between 3200-3500 rpm on deceleration, nothing a simple gear or throttle change won't cure. I really don't see how anyone can go wrong with this system. A couple of other key features to note about the Hartmann Golf R Turbo-back exhaust is that it has adjustable tips, and we will offer different tip options with this system. These features will be exclusive to the Hartmann Golf R exhaust.

      Not sure if I missed this info or not but what is the exhaust made out of?

    10. 06-04-2012 03:05 PM #185
      100% T-304 stainless steel and mandrel bending.



      ... And "Stage 2" software will be required as the down-pipe will throw a CEL.

      I want to hear this exhaust you speak of, hell even a phone clip will do. Is the pre-order pricing for catback alone or with downpipe?

      We couldn't (and wouldn't) introduce our exhaust with a cell phone clip. Just couldn't bring ourselves to do it. We were supposed to get one that was made during production but haven't seen that come through yet. And between local track events and shows, we've been really busy. Will do our absolute best to get you guys a quality sound clip as soon as possible. Thanks in advance for your patience.

      Pre-order price is for the complete turbo-back exhaust system.

      Next question(s): How long is the pre-order going to be open for?
      and what will the actual real price of the system be?

      By definition of a pre-order, the price will go up (to $1649) when the first batch of production exhausts are in stock. You have about two weeks.

      As soon as he caught wind that the APR RSC turbo-back exhaust for the Golf R was in stock, Chris set-up an appointment and came in right away. The Golf R is arguably one of the best little "packages" right out of the box, and the ECU upgrade we installed on his Golf R a couple of months ago completely transformed it into a monster but news about the gains expected when adding an exhaust made Chris itch for more. The installation requires an ECU "Stage 2" software upgrade and adds about 10-15 extra hp, definitely a noticeable difference in power and a slightly louder tone to let everyone know what's coming.





      Chris says, "that's it!" but we'll just have to wait and see...
