Today I managed to go to Hyperdrive Co. and meet with the shop owner, Shafique Hussain. Hyperdrive is a newly established company that is dedicated to helping Volkswagen and Audi owners make the most of their vehicles. They offer support in enhancing the performance and driveability of VW and Audi vehicles while also helping to ensure your vehicle and its engine has a long, healthy life. The shop is located next to Nusa Laila Puteri School at Berakas.
Hyperdrive is a Sole Distributor of APR TUNED Products. APR stands for Audi Performance Racing. It is an established US based company that is dedicated solely to enhancing the performance, handling and drivability of your VAG Vehicle without sacrificing longevity. For more information on APR, visit www.goapr.com
As a sole distributer of APR, Hyperdrive can supply any and every component that is produced by APR to ensure the same high quality product range, customer service and support that APR is well known for. From exhausts, intakes, intercoolers and bigger turbos, Hyperdrive offers them all and guarantees your chosen products arrive within a 3 week period upon confirmation of order.
Shafique kindly explained to me that Hyperdrive offers three major services for now.
The Services offered are:
- APR Direct Port Programming and products for Audi and Volkswagen
- OEM Spare Parts- Hyperdrive can help VW or Audi owners in looking for Original Factory spare parts at affordable prices. What they need from you is the VIN number, Model and year of the car that you required for the Genuine Factory spare parts. Hyperdrive guarantees your chosen products arrive within a 3 week period upon confirmation of order.
- Restoration Support- Hyperdrive can help find parts for any classic VW or Audi. Just let them know what you need along with the car chassis number, Model & year. Hyperdrive ensures that the chosen products arrive within a 3 week period upon confirmation of order.
One of the highlights of Hyperdrive's services is "APR Direct Port Programming". APR Direct Port Programming is a system which allows programs to be uploaded to the engine ECU via the factory OBll port. This is a software remap or 'chip' tuning. You can experience 30% gain in horsepower by just using APR Direct Port Programming.
Hyperdrive offers an APR trial that lasts for 6 Hours "Driving time". After the 6 hours is complete, the ECU goes back to its original state without damaging the ECU at all.
Basically, if you drive 15 minutes today, you'll still have 5 hours, 45 minutes left tomorrow to play with.

"Scared of voiding your warranty? No problem! As APR and Volkswagen of America are tied closely since they worked on the SEMA R GTI concept together, Volkswagen of Singapore is following their footsteps assigning APR as one of their performance tuners. The understanding is that even with an ECU upgrade installed, it won't void the warranty of everything else in the vehicle. Now that's peace of mind for you" –Hyperdrive
This is good news for Audi and Volkswagen owners.
