Bird brought us his Reflex Silver Golf R for some suspension upgrades. While our neighbors up North in Canada get this color option standard there are only 4 or 5 here in the U.S. We’re told this vehicle used to be one of VW’s press vehicles and ended up at Auburn VW where Bird picked it up when he traded in his Golf TDI.
AKG Motorsport subframe reinforcement plates are available right here at Achtuning for your BMW (E36/46) 3-Series!
Stress cracks in this M3’s body are the unfortunate result of the rear subframe design that bolts it right into thin sheet metal and is a common problem for E36 (non M)/E46 3-series BMWs, especially when they get put through their paces.

With great power comes great responsibility.
Matt brought us his Audi S3 for an APR Stage 3 Turbo upgrade, a +172HP/+135TQ increase over stock, and he will have us install StopTech’s ST40 Big Brake Kit to help keep that power in check.
APR Presents the Stage III EFR7163 Turbocharger System for the 2.0T EA888 Gen 3 engine!
“The APR Stage III Turbocharger System produces an incredible 522 HP and lays down 10-second quarter mile passes, all through a convenient, affordable and expandable, turn-key solution. It represents a threat to the establishment of turbo four cylinder vehicles of yesteryear, and breaks the hearts of muscle cars and exotics everywhere as they are left in the dust by an engine a third the size of theirs, screaming a turbocharged battle cry as it passes. It is a vicious beast, yet a beast easy to tame. It makes for a civilized daily driver that quietly sips premium fuel with surprisingly excellent mileage. Deceivingly quick transient response, with near stock-like turbo lag makes for an experience devoid of the compromises many would expect from an engine this size. It is the …
APR’s TTE420 Turbocharger ECU Upgrade is designed for use with the The Turbo Engineer’s TTE420 turbocharger and produces an asphalt-shredding 400 HP on 93 octane fuel, and up to 442 HP using race fuel! Expect lightning fast response coupled with smooth daily driving and a much broader power band that pulls all the way to redline!
We continue to stock and install AKG Motorsport subframe reinforcement plates at Achtuning! Scott’s got his BMW E36 328is track car with us to eliminate stress cracks we found in the under-body of his 3-series, the unfortunate result of the rear subframe design that bolts it right into thin sheet metal and is a common problem for E36 (non M)/E46 3-series BMWs, especially when they get put through their paces.

Welcome to the VW family, John!
With a recommendation from his local VW dealer, Eric gave us a call about APR goodies for his new Golf R. We talked about APR’s ECU upgrade and mentioned we install the APR Carbon Fiber Intake for free with that ECU purchase. That discussion quickly lead to the addition of APR’s Carbon Fiber Turbo Inlet Pipe and the APR Oil Catch Can, all of which we had in stock which made Eric’s decision that much easier. All we had to do was get him on the schedule. About a week later, here we are…
