    i have mailed hpa,
    Hi Darryl

    I have a few questions for you.
    Does the competition controller engage 4awd permantley or just when needed (like a normal controller fwd) and under braking?
    i have seen this quote on a this thread HPA Motorsports Haldex Controller for MkIV R32 / Mk1 TT
    HPA will match or beat all competitors' prices on Haldex...IM or e-mail me for a quote.
    i have seen this Audi/VW Diff Controllers | Haldex
    Do you do group buys? and if you do how many would be needed and what sort of discount could we expect?
    Could these be sent as a trial product to see if they work with our cars?

    Kind regards
    jez

    I admire your optimism about the last question and asking them to send a trial product! lol

    There made by Haldex and have been out for many years so they definitely work on our cars mate

    for official purposes
    the controller has yet to be tried on the Audi s3 8l (not being sold in n america)
    So we would be trialing this product and seeing if its compatible with our cars and report back our findings to HPA so they could list our cars on there website.
    simply put if you dont ask you dont get

    Haha....that is true- they only list the R32 and TT for the competition. Well spotted

    So if they send 1 competition controller over Jez, then your car will be the demo car and we can all take turns trying to drift yeah? lol

    plenty of test pilots at me front door, i think the misses would chop off certain parts of my anatomy.
    Shes already asking how much this little upgrade is.

    Aragorn
    im might get some machined off the carriers, would these be better than the standard set up?
    or am i chucking money where its not needed?
    thanks

    So here we go.
    There quick the reply

    Jez,

    The “competition” unit does not engage 4WD permanently, just more often (and under more circumstances) than the stock unit.

    What is funny about the link that you sent me? GMP buys the competition controller from HPA! We just had to change our price because of a raised cost from the supplier, and apparently we did not tell them.

    I will authorize the US$999.00 price they are offering in good faith. (Total now US$1089.00)

    I have tried to set up group buys in the past in the UK for this controller (as HPA has a worldwide exclusive on it), but the trick is where to ship to (one address would be best), and how to get it to other customers once the bulk shipment arrives there. The big discount would be the shipping (+VAT) from sending all 10 (or however many) to one address.

    If you can drum up interest, I can take a look at pricing. You must let people know that the regular price is $1099.00 now though.

    Let me know what you think will work, and I will try to support you.

    Thanks,
