When it comes to air ride there are a few key things to think about. Do you go with a pressure based or height based levelling system? Do you do an exposed trunk setup with hardlines, or do you hide the install? Do you daily drive your car, or is it just for show?

When we were tasked with bagging this MK7 Golf R, functionality was the main concern. We decided to keep everything hidden to retain 100% of the trunk space. This Golf R is equipped with Accuair e-Level management which utilizes height sensors to keep the car at your desired ride height no matter what's inside the car, and since the trunk is fully usable, that could be anything from hockey gear, to wet dogs.

Everything in the trunk mounts to a custom designed steel plate which is laser cut and bent to our specifications to house all of the components in one place. The system is now completely serviceable and removable as one piece if need be. The airlines are routed through factory grommets in the trunk and require zero holes drilled for install. Now this leased vehicle can go back to stock within hours and the air ride can be swapped into another vehicle.

If you're thinking about bagging your Audi or VW but want to have a fully functional trunk, come see us and we can get you set up.

I like girls that wear Abercrombie and Fitch

You might recognize this RS5 from a while back when we did the complete Accuair B8 Sportkit air ride installation. This year, the owner decided to freshen things up with a new set of wheels. She decided to go with a darker finish to match the cars matte grey wrap. It’s amazing what a change in wheels can do to a car.

RPI Equipped MK7 GTI

Following the trend of it's big brother (A7), our RPI GTI got the full air suspension and Rotiform treatment. Not wanting to burn a massive hole in the pockets, this car was built with budget in mind. The air suspension was a mix and match of HP Drivetech struts, which use modified Bilstein shocks, and AirLift V2 management with a single compressor and a 5 gallon tank hidden in the trunk.

2016 Audi A7 – RPI Equipped!

Audi's facelift for the A7 is perfect. The new lines of the front bumper and the rear valance leave people wondering what they've just seen. The only way to improve on the shape of the A7 is to exaggerate it's big body by bringing it closer to the ground.

A timeless classic.

For car enthusiasts there is a long list of cars that, given the chance, we have to have in our possession at least once. Then, things in life change and you no longer have the space/use/need for said car and you sell it. Every time the topic of cars comes up, you are reminded of "the one that got away". You know, the car that you sold, but wish you hadn't.

On to the next one.

It's about that time again. When we part ways with a project car and open up the discussion of what to do next. No sooner had we posted our car for sale before the new owner stopped by to check it out and take it for a test drive. Usually when we sell one of our project cars, it is toned down for the new owner.

The Ultimate Road Trip

It started about a week and a half ago. On a Wednesday afternoon. We got a call from our friends at Rotiform asking if we wanted to do the Targa Trophy MEGARUN from Denver, CO to Las Vegas, NV. Accuair was looking for a car to go down and do the run with them. The…

The wonderful thing about Tiggers

This nice thing about the Tiguan is that it comes in all wheel drive. It has a nice upright seating position. It has lots of headroom, and it's based off of the Golf chassis. If you need a go-anywhere hatchback, it's perfect.

Another one in the bag.

Vancouver's second RS5 on air. RPI's second RS5 air install. Coincidence? 

The decision to use Accuair's B8 Sportkit was an obvious one when it came time to bag Yi's RS5.
