Your own personal caddy.

Introducing the RPI Wheel caddy. A convenient way to keep your wheel hardware all in one place. Most people have 2 different wheel sets for their car, one for summer, and one for winter. Many aftermarket wheels use special hardware leaving you with 2 different sets of wheel hardware for 2 sets of wheels.

How many times have you gone to put on your winter wheels only to realize that you’ve misplaced the hardware specific to your winter wheel setup? Now you’re stuck running around looking for a missing bolt or a wheel lock, or all of it.

The wheel caddy is an easy way to make sure you never end up missing a bolt or wheel lock. With enough room to fit all the hardware you will need for a set of wheels, the Wheel caddy easily attaches to the back of one of your wheels using it’s threaded plastic lug.

Now you can stack your wheel in your garage all winter long and not worry about running around when the spring comes looking for your missing wheel lock or that one lug bolt that you could have sworn was with the other 19 bolts.

Not all car enthusiasts are JUST car enthusiasts. Whatever your other hobbies might be, we can tailor your vehicle to suit your needs and still look great doing them. From show stopping looks, to shuttling your pals up the mountain for a weekend of riding, RPI Equipped! knows what works.

APR DSG testimonial

We’ve had a lot of people ask us our opinions about the DSG software lately. Admittedly, we haven’t done the tune on our own car but have had a few customers come and get it done on theirs. Here’s Brandon’s quick little review on the DSG tune from APR.

2012_audi_tt_rs-wallpaper-1280x800

“I came in twice this summer, first to get an APR Stage 1 ECU tune for my 2010 TT-S, then more recently to receive the APR DSG tune after some noticeable gear mismatches and jerky boost onset, especially in Drive. I promised to follow up and so here it is!

I am happy to report that the terribly fast upshifts and near refusal to downshift, especially in Drive, is all but gone after the DSG tune. Whereas stock had me shifting at hard set points, regardless of conditions like engine load and what not, now the car shifts at times that make total sense, especially in tune with throttle position. Now that gears are perfectly matched, I also don’t take my neck out with sudden jolts forward when boost kicks in; everything is smooth, predictable and fully under my control.

Sport mode also now makes a lot of sense. At stock, the daily drive in Sport would again have me shifting at set points, regardless of engine load and throttle input. Partial throttle still had me aggressively shifting at high RPM. It was admittedly kind of fun at first but objectively speaking way too aggressive and definitely not good for the car in the long run.
The DSG tune again places shifting more in line with how much power I am demanding from the throttle, and again, power delivery is linear, smooth, and fully dictated by my right foot. Sport is now completely comfortable to drive in while going to work, but still hilariously fun on an open road.

Given my experience, I would advise any future tuners to definitely mate their ECU tunes with a proper and appropriate TCU tune. The car is definitely running with the added power as if it was meant to be right out the factory.

As for you guys, you were friendly, accommodating, easy going and informative. Couldn’t ask for more in terms of service, and I look forward to future tunes in your capable hands!

See you on the road!”
