    to be honest, I bought the competition controller (have yet to install it). Reason why I bought this and not the switchable was exactly for the reasons tigger73 mentioned. Even if I were to have bought a switchable one, I would probably set it to Race and forget. But some people like having that option.

    This mod will probably be the most beneficial if you use your car on the track as that is where it will shine. However, for normal day to day driving I doubt you will feel a significant difference. Car may "scoot" along better when you press down on the accelerator and brake faster due to torque transfer, but aside from this you probably won't feel too much.

    Having said all this, the price is excellent and a mate of mine who doesn't frequent this forum would like to buy one so put my name down too please (Competition Haldex)

    For sure this upgrade is going to be most beneficial on the track, for spirited driving or even going around the odd round-about

    Happy to open it up to others - will send you the group buy payment link to pass on when it's up early next year.

    Yes Gen 2 with cable switching is US$999 + US$110 shipping = US$1,109.

    Allowing for 0.86 exchange rate (current Paypal rate) you'd expect to pay around AUD$1,290 inclusive.

    So I'll put you down as a possible???

    Correct, however the $1000 limit only applies to the cost of the goods and not to shipping/handling charges. The competition controller units have been priced so as to bring these under the limit for imports.

    Depending on how many people want to order the remote switchable units I'll arrange a shipment for the remotes and people people can purchase these off me here in Aus, but we'll cross this bridge if/when we come to it.

    However this only really applies to the minority of units (mainly for R32). I imagine 95% of people will be purchasing the controller only and this can be shipped under the limit.

    HPA regularly ship to Aus so are fully aware of the issues with import duties.

    A few months ago I told myself that I would stop pouring money into the R, but every now and then opportunities like this come up. I hate the word Group buy lol it usually implies getting something I have wanted for a while but held off because of the price. But I am Asian and Asians love a good discount 😄
