      ^ On behalf of everyone in here with headlight leveling concerns, thanks for putting that link in here.

      Sorry, we don't have anything "published" that we can even share honestly. We're also going to be testing at least two other suspension kits on this car (one already en route) so we'll be doing that all over again.

      have you had any issues with the hpfp? im considering getting one along with an apr intake and exhaust when its available. Just waiting to put a few more miles on her.

      btw, great color choice, we went with a 4 door base CW as well!

      No issues at all! And we've got more track miles than road miles on the R right now so it's definitely getting its use!

Though I might suggest a 225/35-19 for those who plan to run a bit lower than this.



      Those look great.

      Just want to say THANK YOU to Bill, Dion, and the rest of the guys at Achtuning.

      Went stage 1 on the R this morning and HOLY SH*T it is the best money I have spent so far on the car.

      Also you guys did a great job convincing my friend. He is probably going to come in and get flashed in the next week or two.

      Excellent! Knew you'd be happy with the software upgrade and look forward to seeing that GTI in next week.

      Sorry for the lack of updates lately! There hasn't been anything new to report except that Bill has been taking his Golf R to Pacific Raceways every weekend for their Test N' Tune events and putting it through the paces, giving a good number of high-powered cars a run for their money! All parts have been holding up well and we've had no issues whatsoever. On a good day he'll get about 250 track miles in and burn through about 3 tanks of gas! Of the 1700 total miles on it, 1300 or so are on the track.

      Oh, and word is the APR "Stage 4" motor being built which we intended to put into the Achtuning A3 is now going into the Golf R...

      Dion. Any more news on the stoptech brakes in your post from last month.

    12. 03-19-2012 03:00 PM #112
      You mean this one?



      We're currently running StopTech's Sport Brake upgrade which replaces the factory rotors, pads, and lines. The Sport kit has slotted rotors (what we typically stock on the shelf) and comes with StopTech's Street Performance brake pads which are ideal for both street and track use, offering much better bite than factory as well as low dust and no noise. A StopTech Big Brake Kit with Trophy calipers are currently in the works.

      No, I mean those good looking silver stoptech 4 piston calipers in your post. I spoke with stoptech a while back and they said they were waiting to hear from you guys to see how the big brakes would fit on the R spindles. People imply that they should fit, but I haven't in fact seen anyone put them on their cars yet. Looking forward to hearing when a stoptech BB kit will fit the R.

      Hey Dion, I've been looking at some of the Hartmann wheels and I was wondering if you had the weights off hand for the B7 HRS4-252-SS (18 and 19) and I saw on your Facebook page today you guys should be getting some of the HTT-256-MA:M with an ET that will fit a Golf. I was curious about the weight on those too.

      I'll second the request for HTT-256-MA:M in 47ET. Perhaps if we ask hard enough they'll come up with it.

      I also think it's ironic that reps from a TT class vehicle won't fit a TT.

      Well according to their reply on the photo of the Audi they posted with them, they are supposed to have some with the correct ET by this summer maybe. I think they would like sweet on an R. They have the regular silver ones that will fit after all, why not these new ones?

      HRS4-252, 18": 26.3 lbs.
      HRS4-252, 19": 27.2 lbs.

      HTT-256, 19": 26.6 lbs.
      ... And yes, the matte/machined-anthracite finish is coming in a high offset!

      Ah. Still in the works but close, just need to do some final testing. Will keep you guys informed as soon as I know.

      The ACHTUNING VW Golf R is suited up and ready for this weekend's test n' tune session. Equipped with StopTech's "Sport" brake upgrade (slotted rotors/street performance pads/stainless-steel lines) and Hartmann Euromesh 4 wheels that are wrapped in Falken RT615s, we anticipate quite the performance from our all-wheel-driven, K04 equipped Golf, especially now that we've got the ECU tune and high pressure fuel pump from APR to back it up as well!!

      The Hartmann Euromesh 4 wheels are 18x8 with a 45mm offset, and sit perfectly within the arches both front and back, offering plenty of room for the meaty RT615s.

      I love the stance and heighth ...pretty much perfect.

      The ACHTUN!NG Golf R tackled The Ridge Motorsport Park this weekend and these Schroth Racing harnesses we just installed last Friday helped quite a bit! A big “thank you!” to Terry at Griffin Motorwerke for the help!!

      Aside from the (now) thousands of track miles we’ve racked up on the Golf R (more track miles than street!), not much else to report other than the fact this car is an absolute BLAST and is quite the track monster, and a sleeper at that! APR has recently announced their exhaust system is almost ready to ship and we’re waiting for a Volkswagen Racing cold air intake to arrive and bump up power even more!

      No chance in getting those wheels in black, is there?

    23. 04-09-2012 03:35 PM #123
      Doubtful. We've got an anthracite finish though that's been popular enough for us to consider bringing it over in a high offset. Will be a while before that happens.
