ABT Car Configuration LINK
although, as evident on few cars on this forum, we do engineer specialty work and fiddly installations for parts other than represented on RamSpeed Webiste. (body kits, suspension components and many, many other performance related jobs)
We can source well engineered and proven solutions from mild (ABT) to absolutely wild, all tailored for our customers wishes and all within 12 month product and labor guarantee. We NEVER go out to produce the fastest, most powerful car. This decision belongs to our customers, not us. We have however for the record, built the most powerful cars in this country,(not VAG cars) but this thread is not about this.
As to proof?, we don't need to prove any of the cars we built, they are not our cars and certainly not our parts or tunes. Owners are welcome to do what they like to in order to prove anything for themselves, we are confident and guarantee results publicized openly by world leading VW and Audi tuners like ABT Sportsline (we don't promise gains, our German partners do and deliver exactly that and more), who have invested millions of Euro in all of their RETAIL power kits with testing facilities and product guarantees which are simply unavailable from local 'tuners' or indeed VW Australia themselves. (below video from our last trip to ABT and inside of their engine bench test room where an R8 engine is being tortured to the breaking point with glowing exhaust and the lot, in order to ensure total product quality)
AP, as you have noticed, we are simply unable to build Frankensteins or perform experiments on customers cars, all of our clients demand quality, reliability and attention to detail which we deliver with leading brands not just for the VW and Audi community, but Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Mercedes, BMW and other European makes. We can not afford experiments for all of these highly complex brands (many of the experiments as we call them end up being towed to our shop from other places). We rely heavily on deep experience and volume of upgrades performed in markets much larger than our own. Markets like Germany which have initially engineered, developed and tested power solutions way before most of the original cars see the light of a day on any Australian showroom floor simply can not be discounted.
As to prices?. I don't believe we ever took an order from you, but yes quality, world renowned engineering and brands do cost more then an average, as does the time and IP we develop along the way working on these complex European cars. The analogy is simple..there is Rolex and there is Timex, some will never own or appreciate Rolex, for them we don't make apologies for not offering or selling a VERY GOOD Timex pieces (to put it in an over simplistic brand analogy)
AP, we (sincerely) wish you a Happy New Year. Let's rest before 2011 begins.
