Upgrading to a Superpro Anti Roll bar?

Posted on: May 12th, 2021 by NEAT

What are the benefits of upgrading to a Superpro Anti Roll bar on your VAG Vehicle?

As most people should know now, we are a Superpro performance dealer. Therefore, any Superpro bushes, anti-roll bars and control arms, you can purchase through us or our sister company ‘VAG Performance’

We get a lot of enquiries for Superpro upgrades. However, a lot of people don’t actually know how the parts actually benefit your car. To start with lets find out how the anti-roll bars affect your vehicle!

What does it do?

Anti-roll bars or Sway bars help keep the vehicle structure and contact to the road when turning. The Bar will distribute your vehicle’s weight over all four tires to keep your vehicle as flat as possible through a turn. Sway bars improve a car’s handling around turns and corners by controlling the vehicle’s weight transfer, including body roll. By working to keep the wheels on each side of the car as even as possible, they help keep the car more planted and maintain a strong contact patch between the tires and the ground.

Certain vehicle models struggle more with poor traction and road handling therefore would massively benefit from having an upgraded Super pro anti roll bar. The most common vehicles we fit these too are Golf R’s and Audi S3’s. It reduces under steer in quattro vehicles having the upgraded rear anti roll bar fit.

What are the differences?

So what are the differences between stock anti-rollbars and upgraded ones? Aftermarket bars are often solid rather than hollow stock bars, with wider range of adjustment. They are largely beneficial for performance vehicles or vehicles that carry or tow loads. That being said, anyone can benefit from an upgraded Anti-rollbar as it will give an overall better driving experience.

Gen 4 haldex servicing tiguan

Posted on: April 9th, 2019 by NEAT

Gen 4 haldex servicing tiguan, golfs, A3 is sometimes overlooked. Both VW and Audi recommend the oil is changed at 38,000 miles. BUT there is something they miss on the dealer servicing.

In most cases, when oil is replaced as a serviceable item, a filter is accompanied with it. VW Audi group decided to use the Generation 4 Haldex coupling drive on various of there models. They did not make the filter a purchasable item. Following manufacturers service guidelines, your filter does not get changed resulting in potential damage to the unit from oil starvation.

So what do we offer you may ask? We purchase quantities of filters direct from the manufacture of the haldex unit making our service a complete not just oil change. This aids the life of the Haldex unit.

Gen 4 Haldex servicing tiguan Golf R S3 A3 filter can be seen above. Left filter has covered over 50,000 miles. The customer described the rear of the vehicle to be un-sturdy whiles driving round corners and roundabouts. We carried out a diagnostic test to find pump problems with the Haldex. Everything was resolved with the correct service procedure and the vehicle repaired without the need to replace unnecessary parts.

Haldex generation 5 service on Golf R

Haldex generation 5 service on Golf R, S3 , RS3 should be carried out at 38,000 miles. Our servicing differs from the dealer. How? you may ask. Well, when the oil is changed at the dealership this is only half the job. Here at North East Auto Tech we remove the pump. By doing so we can clean the pump strainer, helping clear through any sludge build up which is the main cause for failure.

Fault codes such as the below are common failure codes.
