    more like £250, i had no idea on their price to be honest £575 is a lot of money for something that wont really make that much difference to the drive (imo)

    You are correct it wont make much of a difference unless you push your car hard. £250 would be a dream

    Depends on how you see it. I see this as completing the car if you go down the handling route. The little difference it makes is confidence in the 4wd system mid corner. I had a little play the other night in attack mode on a corner I know very well, I managed a small 4 wheel drift in my S3, where it would usually go into understeer on the exit of the corner. I have no doubt the Haldex performance controller did it's job there, but you need to be committed to get into this position in the first place!

    I don't expect everyone's driving style to be the same, but you really need an open space like a track day to get to know your car a bit better to make the most of this bit of equipment.

    I'll chase him up but this GB depends on having 10 serious buyers to get the price of £585 and i'm scepticle that there are 10 serious buyers willing to cough up £600.

    IMO - you can not turn a haldex into a proper awd system, it's based around a motorcycle clutch, for it to be 50/50 you need to apply at least 50% throttle, so, lets say you put the power on mid corner, you're going to get a surge of power suddenly hitting the rear wheels, which is just silly

    now, if the module applied 50/50 power distribution and was smart enough to change it from 70/30 / 30/70 all the time it would be a different story.

    please correct me if i am wrong about the extra power going to the rear at 50% throttle
