    He's already a bit of a legend with his adjustable tie arms but the haldex controllers would make him a leg-end ;)

    Are you able to find out how much it is for 100 units or have the number for the guy you called?

    Is there a normal "Bog standard" type Haldex box for the VAG range other then the "Performance" type units.

    Its just that I've come up against a Unit with the following make / model number: Haldex controller 02D 900 554 C at a bargin price was wondering if this is just a "normal" Haldex or indeed a Performance type unit.

    I have emailed Haldex HQ direct however no responce in around a week from them.


    Thanks in advance

    :footy:

    Do a quick google search. That part number seems to be off a 2000 Golf.

    I'm guessing you're looking at the eBay item :)

    02D 900 554 C looks to me to be a standard controller, however I believe it is the v2 of the Gen1 controller as fitted to cars from 2003 onwards rather than the v1 as fitted to basically all S3s.

    Best bet is to get a better photo of the label from the seller to check.

    Greetings guys,

    I'm new, but I definitely up for a group buy on this, I have been waiting for one to pop up elsewhere...which is most unlikely! Will be a nice edition to the pending remap.

    I believe this is undetectable for warranty reasons (?) I'm sure I've read this while researching.

    Is is possible to get a good deal on the remote controller to select the modes? http://www.jkm.org.uk/performance/Misc/Misc_Performance_pictures/products%20page%20parts/haldex/haldex_2010_1_big.jpg

    The remote only works with Gen 2 upwards and 8L S3s are Gen 1 so you won't find many on here interested in the remote I'm afraid :)

    Jesus mate. As if a group buy wasn't difficult enough, let alone one that spans across both A3/S3 chassis! Good luck ;)

    Right just got off the phone to the TTSHOP.

    They said they are going to keep the orginal price but will refund money to everyone depending how many they sell "over 20".

    I have enquired for a price on the Gen2 controllers, he will email me later.

    Did you manage to get a price from haldex for the 100 units ? been speaking with my accountant and i would need a partner for this if we could get them cheap enough....any takers?
    He is concerned that the cars are getting on a bit, and 5-£600 is a lot to ask for a 10 year old motor on a performance part..unless we can mix with gen 2s?

    Little update GNG's........

    I have taken a look at the figures, I can go down to £575 Inc VAT for 20+ Gen 1 Controllers.


    In regards to the Gen 2 guys, the price for each as part of this group buy (doing my best to include everyone) is £650 Inc VAT (Retail £756 Inc VAT)

    Hope this helps.

    Just wondering what price you would have stayed in at? This is still a fairly big saving compared to RRP
