They look like a very good piece of kit and are hoping to be released late this summer :)

Theirs a massive group buy on tt forum. Seems to be hit and miss though from the last time I read it, I dont think they even have a working prototype yet.

Looks interesting... I prefer the idea of this over the blue controller tbh...

The price looks pretty good comparative to other solutions out there too... just having a read through the TT forums group buy now :)

Prices of used blue controller will drop massively when these come out.

so they should. their retail is stupid, and so are the prices and people selling them 2nd hand

Yeah I wish I'd sold mine when they were in heat. I think a few went for $1k+ for a short period. Madness.

Funnily enough I actually emailed HPA just a few days ago asking how much the blue controllers were....

I got a reply shortly ago and have copied and pasted it below for those on (work) PCs that are unable to see the first image :)


Chris,

Thanks for the e-mail. The Gen.1 Competition performance modules we used to sell are now discontinued, because of a stock shortage at VW.

But I have some good news! Please see the attachment I included.

There are many people calling us right now to prepay and get in on the first production run of this new development.

Price is $599.00 + shipping.

We will hopefully have a prototype working in the next couple of weeks, and our local Beta testing will continue afterwards.

Included in the kit will be an LCD screen, cable/harness, and a connector that will "T" the link between the stock Haldex unit and the CAN-Bus (there is no Haldex module included).

This unit will allow variable manipulation of the Haldex system, the ability for the driver to choose and switch engagement control on the fly.

These units are being built locally in Canada, and we expect sellable inventory to be ready 6-8 weeks after the prototype is released.

Let me know if you want to pre-order, and I will get you a shipping quote.

Regards,

Darryl Scott

No code mate. Just go over to the tt forum or r32oc and put your name down.

The CRC looks a well thought out bit of kit

Like the oil temp reading too
Like snow too, and the crc looks more than capable

Even allows use of stock controller if you need granny to drive the car

Is there any chance of getting the group buy on this forum?

If I was you mate I'd join the TTforum just for the group buy, only reason the discount is so much is because they've consolidated it with TT owners on Facebook and R32oc.

I need to see some demonstration videos before parting with cash, cos I'm tight lol.

I'm already on TTForums from when I was tracking down issues with the birds TT, £400 tho, I'll be spending that getting the ****** car running properly first lol...

Speaking to Daryl today. It works out at €450 delivered for the controller. That's even cheaper than what second hand blue controllers are going for. So guess I will be getting one.

Thats not a bad price at all damn it!!.... lol

I think I would like to see some feedback before I order one for mine but this idea appeals more than a replacement controller... at least this stands the chance of getting a little more development and can be reused if your controller goes Pete Tong...

So this manipulates the standard controller over obd? There must be cheaper ways of doing it without having a flash display?

I'm starting the saving fund now! The missus will straight up murder me for spending nearly what her car cost on a controller for mine lol
