    Not sure what the Gen 2 on my car does or does not do in relation to transmission losses, suppose I'll find out one day when it goes on some rollers!

    No fella I mean the improved gen 2 controller, not the stock one on your S3, there is an improved one you can fit that does a better split of power for the rears. awesome do it I think.

    The Stock 8P Haldex is improved over the stock 8L Haldex , with quicker reaction times and less losses.

    I'm not sure if it has a better split of power.

    The face lift S3 will be better again than the pre face lift, but the Gen II HPP controller will let you have a more aggressive split of power and has 3 settings. normal , sport , and race modes.

    Thankyou someone knows the difference & improvements, facelift doesnt have this controller as far as I know so would benefit from the Gen 2 8P controller overall

    As far as i know the pre face lift 8P S3 uses the same Haldex unit and settings as the face lift 8P S3.

    Phantom, can you post some info about what you just said ?

    As i understand it the face lift S3 uses the same controler , but has a Mechanical clutch for faster reaction times.

    Not too sure mate on the controller , but it's defo mechanical not electrical controlled.

    I think a uprated Haldex controller is my next mod. :)
