    HPA Haldex Controller Group Buy

    I've been looking into getting a Haldex controller recently and after a number of conversations with the guys at HPA have decided that instead of just getting 1 x Haldex Controller for myself I may as well organise a whole bunch.

    So I'll put this up here looking for expressions of interest firstly.


    HPA Gen 4 Competition Haldex Controller (0BR/0BY) for Golf R

    Normally these retail for US$1,099

    Super special group buy price - US$879 + shipping. That's 20% off RRP!

    You won't buy it cheaper ever!!!! (even better than the price on the VWVortex group buy - but don't tell those guys ).


    So what exactly does an HPA Competition Haldex Controller do?

    The Competition controller will transfer more torque more fast to the rear wheels.

    Also it supports left foot braking (without disengaging the 4-motion clutch) and shifts torque to the rear wheels under braking which assists in deceleration.



    For full details on the product please check out the HPA website: http://www.hpamotorsports.com/product_haldex.html


    So if you're interested, PM me and/or reply to this thread and I'll add you to the list.

    Everyone that has registered will be sent the link to the payments page which will be put up in the second week in January 2014.

    To qualify for this never-to-be-repeated price we need just 10x orders.


    Other controllers that are also available:

    Gen4 for R36/Tig (Race mode only) - US$899 + shipping
    Gen2/Gen4 for R/R32/R36/Tig (Cable switch - Race/Std/Eco) - US$999 + shipping
    Gen2/Gen4 for R/R32/R36/Tig (Remote receiver - Race/Std/Eco) - US$1149 + shipping

    Also similar options are available for Audi A3/S3/TT/TT-S/TT-RS/RS3

    Don't tempt me Damien......

    Do we know how much shipping is? The US/Canadian shops can be ridiculous on shipping costs.

    Shipping is US$110 via UPS.

    The competition unit is HPA developed in conjunction with Haldex and is only available through them.

    Includes engine braking through the rear wheels. And left foot braking amongst other things...

    Do it Lucas, it's been my most fav mod to date, eliminated understeer and love the left foot braking on those spirited drives.

    I'm down for one. Was very close to pulling the trigger on one a couple weeks ago so this is a nice saving for me.

    Totally worth it, can even tell a lot of difference switching between modes, car bites into the corner and just pulls itself around after in sport.
    MY08 BLUE R32 : Capristo Exhaust / GruppeM intake / SHS Coilovers / Neuspeed sway bars / Urethane engine mounts / HPA Short Shifter / Hawk Ceramic pads / Braided lines / Auto-Polar FIS+ Advanced / And all that jazz

    I'm in. Been researching these for a while, just wondering if anyone had fitted the unit with the receiver/remote? Would it be worth the extra money etc? Will this be included in the group buy if I were to choose this option? Thanks

    HPA Haldex Controller Group Buy

    For Golf R there are effectively two main options of Haldex unit to choose:

    1) Gen4 Single mode non-switchable "Competition" controller (US$879). Additional functions of left foot braking and torque transfer to rear wheels under braking. This product is exclusive to HPA and was developed by HPA in conjunction with Haldex for the track.

    2) Gen 4 Switchable 3 mode controller - Eco/Stock/Race. Can be bought without switch (US$899), with hard-wired switch (US$999) or with wireless remote (US$1149). If bought without switch this will default to permanent "Race" mode. Does not have left foot braking or torque transfer to rear on braking. This is a standard Haldex performance product available worldwide.

    For Gen 2 (R32) and non-Golf R (R36, Tig) these only have choice of option 2) switchable units. For Gen 2 (R32) you would want a switch as default program without a switch is "Sport" mode and not the more aggressive "Race" file (Gen 2 units come in Stock/Sport/Race).

    Reality is most people will keep it in "Race" mode most of the time anyway. But if you want to be nice to your rear clutches or are worried about fuel economy of 0.1 l/100km then a switchable unit has some merits.
